I have found that I read much more since I have discovered the Kindle app on my iPad. I use it much more frequently that if I had to actually pick up a paper book and read. I guess it is because all of my books travel with me everywhere I go. I find myself reading in the car (when someone else is driving), in the doctor’s office, in bed, and anywhere else I find myself with more than a few minutes to spare.
I thought I’d share a few tips for reading and finding books on your device.
One thing the Kindle app doesn’t do is help you find and download new books to read. I found this confusing. I didn’t want to go through my browser to visit the Amazon store to find a new book, but guess what….there’s an app for that.
Kindle Cloud Reader is a full functioning reader that you could use to buy and read books, but I prefer to use this app for finding, purchasing and downloading new books, and the Kindle app to read them. Once you install the Kindle Cloud Reader app, you will see the “Kindle Store” button in the top right corner. This will take you to the Amazon Store and you will be able to search through the thousands and thousands of books. When you make the purchase, the book will download to your devices.
Free Kindle Books
Would you like a tip for finding Kindle books online for free? Every week I find free real estate or sales books as well as other books I download just for enjoyment. I do this with an app called Flipboard.
Flipboard is a reading app that will pull in articles from your favorite websites, twitter account, and more, so all your news and information is in one handy location. I use my Flipboard app everyday.
Once you are on Flipboard, click the red ribbon in the top right corner, from here you’ll be able to search for any websites you regularly visit. In this case we are going to look for free books,
Then search “Free Daily ebooks”
I recommend the one highlighted in the image below. At the time of this article, this site had a good selection and was being updated with new books hourly.
If you click on the + next to the name, it will add it to your favorite sites in Flipboard. I check this feed in my Flipboard everyday. You’ll find that there are many books in this list including romance, science fiction, cooking, biographies, and more, so you do have to skim through them to find the ones that interest you the most.
Typically when a book is offered for free, it is only for that day. I recommend that before you hit that “Buy Now” button, you double check the price. If the free offer has expired, you will see a price other than $0.00 on the screen.
That’s it. I hope you spend some time looking using your Kindle or Kindle app and expand your knowledge!
