Where to Find FREE Books

For those who missed my newsletter, here’s how to find FREE books. They’re out there. Hundreds of them:

Find Free Books

Occasionally, authors offer their novels free. Why? They hope you’ll review or recommend them. Here’s the secret way of finding thousands of free books. First, you must use a laptop or computer. (Your mobile phone will default to the Top 100 Paid.)

  • Go to Amazon Best Sellers Page
  • Select Kindle e-books on the left hand side
  • Scroll & select a category/genre on left (example: Humor & Entertainment)
  • Select Top 100 Free (circled in blue on the picture below)

Select a book that piques your curiosity. One with a number of reviews. If it’s not for you, you can easily delete.

Grabbing free books is as simple as that! Here are a few direct links (must be clicked from computer or laptop): HumorRomanceMystery Thriller & SuspenseWomen’s Fiction. (Again: Your mobile phone will default to the Top 100 Paid.)

Other ways to find free books:

Amazon Prime Members, you are missing out if you’re not downloading a monthly First Reads. You get one free book per month (sometimes two). These are brand new novels, so google Amazon First Reads mid month. By then, readers will have posted hundreds of reviews. Pick one with 4+ stars.

Anyone can find free or low cost books on various sites. My favorites are BooksendsBookBub, or Bookgorilla. (I’m sort of addicted to them.) I’ve seen discounted books by authors such as Liane Moriarty, David Baldacci and Nora Roberts on these sites.
