Free Books For Your Kindle

colorful book border

  • Unless otherwise noted, books are free but this can change without notice. Doublecheck.
  • If you click a link and it doesn’t finish loading, just hit refresh. Sometimes the page just kind of hangs for some reason, I am not sure why.
  • If I don’t say, “I loved this book” or “I read this,” Or something along those lines, I haven’t read the book. I haven’t read most of these. I’m just your book bird-dog, sniffing up potential good reads.
  • I use various search methods to come up with titles. Then I read the blurbs, a couple of the best and worst of the reviews, and sometimes scan the free pages.
  • I screen out so many this way that I end up *not* posting more books I’ve looked over than I post.  And yet, still some duds slip through, because Kindle’s wonderful publishing program means any idiot and many otherwise undiscovered gems can publish.

Havoc
by E. Phillips (Edward) Oppenheim

Amazon Reader Review: Havoc is set (and written) in 1910, when the countries of Europe were in a thicket of plots and alliances. All the pressures that lead to WWI are there, but the intrigues and secret treaties create an interesting background to the twists and turns of the plot. The story revolves around the creation of a secret alliance between Germany, Russia, and Austria. The English hope to split Russia away by holding the Czar to his previous public commitments, but they need proof of what was done to create the pressure.

Publishers’ Weekly Review, 1905:
Opens with a meeting in Vienna of three important personages; the Czar of Russia, and the Emperors of Austria and Germany. They are formulating plans for the invasion of England and the overthrow of Servia. An ardent Englishman and an American journalist secure possession of some important documents and after that there is something happening every minute.

Lalage’s Lovers
by George A. Birmingham

1905 review: The novels of this author dealing wholly with Irish life are not as yet known to American readers. They are humorous and have a flavor of the good old days, when leisure to enjoy was still known. Lalage is an Irish minx of a girl telling of all her flirtations and contrariness and all her unsuppressible good hearted humor.

Old Glory Series, FIGHTING IN CUBAN WATERS Or UNDER SCHLEY ON THE BROOKLYN the third and concluding volume of the Old Glory Series By Edward Stratemeyer

1899 Review:  In point of information conveyed there is no superior among tbe boys books of this generation. The order of rank in the navy and man of war life in detail are cleverly and accurately presented, while historically the volume might serve as a work of reference for most of the events in Cuban waters, from the destruction of the Maine to the beaching of the Spanish fleet.

Other books in the Old Glory Series:

Under Dewey at Manila (2.99)

The third is only available in hard copy and it’s fairly pricey (13 dollars for A Young Volunteer in Cuba).  You can get a collection of half a dozen of his works for .99

Housekeeping:

Subject to change without notice: Free Titles were free at the time I copied and pasted the links. But they don’t always stay free. The older, public domain books should, because they are all in the public domain, but sometimes….

Shameless money grubbing: I thought this was common knowledge, but it turns out it’s not- these are affiliate links. If you click on a free title and download it, I get….. nothing.  If you click on a free title and while you are at Amazon also buy something else, I get….. something.  Depending on what you buy, it will probably be somewhere between 4% and 7.5% of what you spend (I don’t get a percentage on penny sales) but I don’t pretend to understand how all of that side works. People have tried to explain, but they start with numbers and my ears buzz and I can’t hear.

Also, Swagbucks remains my favorite source for free Amazon gift cards. And if you haven’t joined, please click on the link and join so that I can keep getting free Amazon gift cards because I am still shameless.  Of course, if you regularly shop on line, you can also sign up for ebates, and then always check ebates first, before you do your regular shopping. You can get quite a tidy sum back on the purchases you were going to make anyway, which is not a bad deal.  And then you can use the money for books- or for other things.=)

Don’t have a Kindle? : You don’t have to have Kindle to take advantage of these offers. You can read them on various free reading apps. I often read mine on my laptop if they are short enough books.  Or I will start there to see if I want to finish it later or remove it from my Kindle already.   If you’re curious, this is the Kindle I have, and I have used others and mine remains my favorite. Mine has Keyboard 3G, Free 3G + Wi-Fi and I don’t have commercial screensavers.   Personally,  I don’t like Kindle Fires because I am a crank like that.

If you like these free listings, you should also like my Facebook page, because I list other free titles there several times each week.

Yes, my Kindle gets slow because I stuff it too full since I have no sense of proportion when it comes to owning books, both real and virtual.

You can left click on a title on your Kindle and delete it from your device, while still keeping it in your list of titles at Amazon in case you want to add it back to your Kindle later without paying for the title all over again. Don’t delete it from folder at Amazon unless you want to rid yourself of it permanently.  Now that I have my tricksy little new phone, I have added it to my list of devices to which I can download devices.  Woot!

commentary sources: Most of the blurbs and book descriptions above are not mine, but come from reviews on Amazon’s page.
