Book Description

Aug. 30 2012
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. No Kindle hardware is required to enjoy these books. Amazon provides free Kindle apps for virtually every model of cellphone, tablet, and computer. 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 KindleBuffet.com, 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: -- Current books offered as free PDF downloads -- Adobe Digital Editions -- Library Books -- PUBLIC DOMAIN BOOKS -- Exploring Project Gutenberg -- Amazon free books for Kindle -- Purchasing free books on Amazon -- The Kindle Owner's Lending Library -- USING KINDLE'S PERSONAL DOCUMENTS SERVICE -- Converting documents. -- USING THE 'SEND-TO-KINDLE' APPLICATION ON YOUR COMPUTER -- Borrowing Kindle books from a library. -- APPS FOR KINDLE FIRE -- APPS FOR FUN -- UTILITIES -- PRODUCTIVITY -- FEED YOUR KINDLE WITH WEB CONTENT -- USING CALIBRE -- KINDLEFEEDER

4.0 out of 5 stars A nifty, no-frills guide Sept. 23 2012
By Witchdoctor58 - Published on Amazon.com
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 Oct. 7 2012
By T. Murrell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
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! Sept. 18 2012
By Mack - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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. Oct. 15 2012
By Moggy K - Published on Amazon.com
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 Nov. 16 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
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!
