Top 75 FREE Kindle books on Amazon - FREE, with links!

49
Found 6th Aug 2012
Been downloading a load of free Kindle books for the wife and thought I'd put together a list here of the current top 75 free books available for immediate download.

Amazon seem to change their free books often so better be quick as some may change from free to a set price. Worth checking back often for newer titles.

I don't actually read myself (never read a book in my life!) but thought this may be useful for some people.

I'll post the links in separate posts. Just click on the links to go to the download/buy (for zero cost) page. Download and keep in your library for free forever!!

If the links don't appear, just follow the main link in this post.

Enjoy!

"FILTHY SHADES OF GRAY"

LOL !!!

can't wait for the next two

(and no i haven't, even at free)

ps, heat added for the effort

None for me but heat for an awesome effort.

Its a well known link but added heat just for the effort!

Thanks

Thanks op - Natural Causes (The Inspector McLean Mysteries) and The Turtle Boy (The Timmy Quinn Series (Book One)) downloaded

Heat from me. I recently read The Ragged Trousered Philanthropist, I found it hard to get into but what a fantastic read. I can thoroughly recommend it to anyone with any interest in the political/social fields.

Swear its just horny women downloading these free books?...

Thanks, 'Hooked' comes up as £1.97 - not free any more?

Yes, as I said they change often for some reason, although some appear to remain free for ages. I guess that's why it's good to check back often - in the last week I've downloaded over 100 free books for the wife. Nothing to lose and a chance to get into a new author one wouldn't ordinarily even consider. Probably the reason for it - making you go back to an author you like and start actually buying their books.

Why top 75 not the top 100 as shown on the Amazon list?

Need to watch a lot of these 'Free' books as most are very short, rubbish or both. You do however the the odd gem of a 'real' good book either free, 99p or £1.99 . Also they often have books from 20p for example http://www.amazon.co.uk/An-Idiot-Abroad-Pilkington-ebook/dp/B0043VDNCO/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1344334103&sr=1-1
As Amazon change the offers often to check daily and also check of the Kindle Daily Deal @ 99p.

Thanks for the effort and the great list! Heat added

Nah, just never liked reading. Drives my missus mad!!

Ordered Thanks have heat:)

Heat for effort, but you must have had some time a dedication to this cause! Sniped one out of pure curiosity.

Never judge a book by it's cover, but cover it with a book to judge never your porno mag!

Hmmm... that's given me an idea!

some effort

Thanks

Cheers for the effort.


Filthy is now chargable though

The reason behind the timings is that these aren't being given away by Amazon. They're being given away by the author/ publisher.

Publishing via Kindle Direct Publishing (i.e. self publishing) and giving Amazon exclusivity ("KDP Select") lets the author have 5 days every 90 to give away their book. The idea being that this can shoot them up the charts due to the increased exposure.
Authors can use as many or as few of these 5 days as they want.

To be permanantly free the price has to be 0 elsewhere (e.g. PubIt, Smashwords, Apple etc) and Amazon then price match that freebie as they are entitled to under the KDP terms and conditions. 20p is likewise done through price match.

These titles change literally every day - around 9 am, and the top 100 are always listed at amazon.co.uk/Bes…31/ (Free on the right).

If you have specific tastes e.g. romance or crime you can also look at the Genre top 100 lists and find free in the areas you like or you can just search low to high price then restrict by average star rating to remove the rubbish. Quality is highly variable simply because publishing on Amazon only needs access to a free Amazon account and a word processor - which makes creating books very simple. Quite a few permanant freebies are the old out of copyright classics.

Bit like Free App A Day then. Good info Sean.

I can see why some of these books are free

I cannot find how to add it to my basket. Do I actually need a kindle as I am using the android app at the moment?

UPDATE - I needed to add my card to my account. Now to get some free books
