Book Description

Free books, all you can eat!

One of the best things about Amazon's Kindle system is that many popular books are offered completely free of charge during brief promotional periods. If you manage to find and download a book while it's offered free, it's yours to keep -- forever.

It's a great way to sample a new genre, or perhaps discover an author you hadn't noticed before. The free promotions usually last only a few days, but there's a new crop every day. You'll be amazed at the wealth of great books. Usually there are several hundred freebies in virtually every category of fiction and nonfiction, every day of the year. And these aren't just the dogs that nobody wants, the selection includes bona-fide bestsellers from the most famous authors in the world. You may never have to pay for a book again!

This book will introduce you to, a website and newsletter founded by author Steve Weber to showcase the best Kindle books currently offered free -- plus a multitude of other avenues toward great free content:

4.0 out of 5 stars A nifty, no-frills guide September 23, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Disclaimer: I received a hard copy of this book free from the author, through the Goodreads First Reads program.

This is a nifty, no-frills guide to maximizing your Kindle's potential using free content. To that end, the author, who obviously loves his subject, outlines many sources of free reading material, including books and newspapers, and he uses screenshots generously to help the newbie or tech-challenged understand.
The first few pages of this 53 page guide are devoted to where to get free books. Weber also introduces you to his own website, which sorts through the myriad Amazon freebies each day and picks out the highest rated for the discerning reader. The next section is devoted to tools to help manage your library and convert files to usable formats. He introduces the reader to the freeware program Calibre, which can also be used for newspaper feeds. The author also provides some information on how to use the productivity features of the Kindle Fire, and useful information on apps and utilities.
As the title suggests, the bulk of the content is Kindle-related, but there is still useful information for users of other e-readers.
I really learned a lot from this book, being somewhat new to e-readers (I have an e-ink Nook and a Kindle app on my i-touch). Now the biggest issue I have is having way too many good books to read (so many books, so little time...). I may just have to invest in a Kindle Fire now...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great resource for people with ereaders October 7, 2012
Part of the title on the book is also "Find and download the best free books, magazines and newspapers for your Kindle, iPhone, iPad or Android" This explains the book very well. It is an amazing resource for finding free books. The book is oversize and easy to understand. It is full of step by step instructions, graphics and pictures to help explain the steps.

I learned quite a bit from this small book (only 53 pages) and will definitely be recommending it to anyone who enjoys ebooks.

I received this book free of charge from Goodreads in exchange for my honest review.

4.0 out of 5 stars Learned something new! September 18, 2012

I downloaded this book because it was free. But it's truly been a pleasant surprise. I've learned so many new things and discovered so many more apps and websites and things to do with my Kindle. Free can be good and worth your time after all!

5.0 out of 5 stars Its worth it for a single tip. October 15, 2012
By Moggy K
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I picked this ebook up today and flipped through it quickly just to get a feel for what information was provided. I stopped at the Calibre section to read a little more closely. I downloaded Calibre to my PC a year or so ago but really never use it. Since this book revealed to me that I could get newspapers delivered for free I had to check it out. Wow, I never knew about this feature. Within about 2 minutes I was reading the english language newspaper from my old hometown, The Japan Times. I also checked out my current hometown paper and the Associated Press. If this is the only tip I use from this book it was worth it, but I am sure I'll find other useful information once I read it more closely.

This is the second 'how to' book I've downloaded by this author. I like how he explains things in a simple way that even the technically challenged such as myself can understand.

1.0 out of 5 stars eBook includes malicious links November 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this ebook and initially thought it was quite useful. However it includes links to malicious web sites, including scumware, phishtank and Vscan. And this is on the 3rd page of the book!

Also a good portion of the book is devoted to selling the Kindle Fire.

Come on Amazon, this sort of behavior is outrageous. This book should be removed from your free list. How many other ebook available on your web site include this sort of content?

This is my first foray into eBooks using a Kindle Touch 3G (which was a gift).

As good as the technology is and as good as the Kindle is from a usability point of view (very elegant), this has left a rotten taste in my mouth!

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't Bother December 3, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have had my Kindle for 2 years and have been getting free books just by going through the "top 100 free" lists at the amazon site, I have also used project gutenberg in the past as well as digital loans from a local library. I was hoping this would give me additional sources of free kindle books, but was very disappointed. There is supposed to be a Kindle Buffet web site, but I have been unable to access it, even using the links I find online. Much of this book is devoted to getting free apps for the Kindle Fire, which I guess is helpful if you have one, but of no use to those of us with older (or lesser) kindles. I did bookmark the section on loading documents onto the kindle and I may try that at some point; that was the only section I found remotely useful. As others have said, glad I got this for free.

1.0 out of 5 stars Kindle Buffet November 5, 2012
By Terry
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is a complete waste of time. There are very few books listed by this publication that are actually available for free from Amazon. It gives the appearance as though this is simply a "bait" to have the reader view books available at Amazon only to learn they are not free. Many of the books are either not free or even known by Amazon on their web page. Would not waste time reading it or subscribing to Kindle Buffet.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read October 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am new to the Kindle Fire HD. I have been a Nook e-reader for the past two years. I thought the Kindle operated similar to the nook, I was wrong. I thought to myself the tablets were all the same. Labels and price were the only difference. Again I was wrong. There is so much to the Kindle Fire HD, that a book as this one is truly needed. This book is a wealth of information. It was free, which based on the information, I would have been pleased to pay a reasonable price for it. I learned about different things I could do with my kindle I did not know I could do as well as getting free books from notable authors. Most of the nooks free books were full of typos and grammatical errors, which took away from the enjoyment of the book. This is a book that every kindle owner should have,not only is it free, there is so mush information contained within that a seasoned Kindle e-reader may be able to pick up on some tips.

More About the Author

Hey, thanks for visiting my page.

I'm Steve Weber, publisher of, where I post a daily list of five-star Kindle books offered free that day. I also have a book called "Kindle Buffet" (Guess what? It's free!). It's one of my several nonfiction tomes about bookselling and collecting, publishing, authorship, book marketing, and social media. You can check out all of my books right here on this page.

I'm from Charleston, West Virginia, and currently live in the Northern Virginia suburbs of Washington, D.C.

In college I studied Journalism -- BS, 1987, West Virginia University (Let's Goooo, Mountaineers!) I was pretty green back then, and I figured a career in newspapers was just the ticket for a guy such as myself who enjoyed writing but had no ideas of his own.

After working several years as a reporter and editor, I started a home-based business selling used and collectible books online (mainly on Amazon). Five years later, I wrote my first book based on that experience: "The Home-Based Bookstore." It's a short book but it took me a long time to write it. I'd never written anything longer than 25 paragraphs or so, and had never used an outline since grade school. I still don't know how to use one. Maybe that's why it takes me so long to write, and all my books read like an upside-down pyramid ;-)

Recently I've been fascinated with publishing my books on the Kindle, and all the other great books available. I'm especially keen on checking out each day's free Kindle books, of course. They're irresistable, like candy or free beer. Or, as one Kindle Buffet reader put it, "They're like potato chips. Nobody can download just one."

I started Kindle Buffet in the summer of 2012, and it draws on my experiences in book-picking, interviewing, writing and publishing. I feel like I have a knack for recognizing what other people might want to read, and talking them into doing it. I figured it would take just 20 minutes a day to update the site and, for a while, it did. Just as with everything else I do, it ended up taking about 25 times longer than I'd figured. So these days I've got about 20 minutes left in my day after I've finished with Kindle Buffet.

A lot of people ask me how I manage to do it all. "Steve," they say, "how can you possibly read 60, 70, 80 books a day, seven days a week?"

My reply is always the same: "Doesn't everybody? I mean, c'mon, they're FREE! There's no excuse not to!"
