Did you know that you can read Kindle ebooks even if you have not bought a Kindle reader from Amazon? Back in March we looked at free Kindle reader apps that you could use for that purpose. In that guide, we also revealed how you could find free ebooks for the Kindle at the Amazon store by linking to category pages where Amazon is listing free and commercial ebooks for the reader.

Today I would like to share another method, one that you can use directly on the Amazon page. For that, you first need to visit the Kindle Store on the Amazon page. Once there, enter $0.00 as the search term at the top and hit enter. You will see a results listing that is for the most part listing free ebooks that do not cost a cent. At the time of writing, it listed 135 free ebooks on the page.

You may find the occasional non-free book in the listing, but the majority of books that you find on the page are free to download (technically you still purchase them for $0.00).

You find another option on that results listing that you may want to explore. A click on Free & Recent Kindle Books here leads to a page that is listing more than 4500 free books for the device that you can download and read.

What you mostly get here are classic books that you may also find in other free ebook repositories. While you won't find the latest Grisham, Collins or Goodkind listed for free, you will definitely find books listed here that you may be interested in adding to your collection.

If you are using the free Kindle ebook reader for PC, your new books should automatically be synchronized so that they become available after a short while in the reader.
