I am looking for some kindle free books that are worth reading. Any suggestions?

I would sign up for ereaderiq.com and then you will be notified twice daily of free books, sorted by genre. If you go to the regular Kindle forum, a reader named Joyce posts daily with free books. Only you can decide if they are worth reading.

Look on the Kindle Forum. Princess Joyce starts a thread every day with a link for free books. Today there were 405 books. You have to hunt through them to see what you would like but it is worth it.

I've subscribed to two email postings that give you links to free books on Amazon. The lists sometimes overlap but I always find quite a few unique titles on both sites to download. They feature links to the Amazon pages so you can check out summaries and reviews to help you decide if it is worth your time to read them. If you want to subscribe, the URLs are:
http://us.kinlib.com/ (this is Joyce's site. Thank you, Joyce!)
http://www.ereaderiq.com/
Since the deals are sometimes for a very limited time, make sure you check for a cost factor before clicking the Buy Now button.

I am always on the lookout for free Kindle books since it's my favorite reading app on my iPad, but I've found that Amazon doesn't always offer the same eBooks free when other companies do (B&N, Sony, Kobo, etc.). Look on Smashwords for free books since the Kindle versions are easy to download there. Just make a free account and you're good to go. But, watch out for some of the free stuff; I'm seeing a lot more erotica and downright porn when looking for simple romance novels.

Honestly, I have found that I am much better off looking for cheap books than free ones. The free ones seem to fall into one of three categories: Christian, erotica, and self-published. Now, if only we could combine them into a self-published piece of Christian erotica, we would have all three genres covered. It would be called "The Jesus Sex Club" and would be written by me. (Joke). And yes, I am a godless heathen. Sorry.

Anyway, I digress. There are lots of reduced price romances out there, and they change daily. If you like historicals, there was a "Duke" special running. There were six or seven titles with "Duke" in them that were all 1.99 -- like this one A Duke of Her Own (Avon Historical Romance) (still priced at 1.99)

Also, you can frequently find contemporary romance priced at 2.99 or lower. Smooth Talking Stranger is still on sale. As is Staying at Daisy's. In fact, Jill Mansell has a number of books priced under 1.99.

One of my favorite books of the year I bought for 99 cents -- Winter Sea. It's back up to full price now, but, IMO, was so amazing that I'd easily pay that for it. I also picked up Outlander for 99 cents ages ago.

My 2 cents.

It helps if you mention genre. I wouldn't care if a romance novel were free. Actually, I wouldn't care if they were offering to pay me to read it.

I discovered that 17th and 18th Century novels, like Jane Austen and Anthony Trollope, are free, as is some poetry. Def. worth reading!!!

I love the juxtaposition of a post about Anthony Trollope followed a post about a comic book.

Go to Gutenberg.org for free books. Most are early books but you can find most classics, there are also links to other sites that have free ebooks. If you are looking for books in other languages you will find them here too. I have yet to check with my local public library but I guessing they have an e-lending section.

In addition to ereaderiq and some of the others, you can try Addall at http://ebooks.addall.com/amazonfree.html . There is some overlap but some differences as well.

I picked up this fantasy novel for free yesterday & started it today. I'm enjoying it -- I think the title of the book could be better, more attractive to readers, but the book is well written & set in a fantasy-version of ancient China. Welcome To The Underworld (It's still free today, so if there's any chance you're interested in it, snag it.)

Forget the romance stuff. Large volume of free Classics!

It really depends on what type of books you like. I enjoy many different types of books. I loved the free Blake Crouch book Run. Not sure if it still free. If you enjoy the classics there are tons of those for free. If you Like paranormal Amber Scott is a good author.The Penal Colony is good. Can't remember the authors name. Jeffrey Pierce is a good fantasy author. Hope this helped there are tons more just can't think of any right this second. I just go in a search under free kindle books. Some have been great others I just delete. I love my new kindle and with Prime I cannot believe how many books Amazon offers for free. I feel like I have my own personal library. Good luck searching
