Best Sites for Free Kindle e-Books

Free eBooks are readily available on the internet.  However, many of them are in the ePUB format and require a conversion before they can be read on the Kindle.  This is not a problem, thanks to the availability of free conversion software (such as the terrific Calibre).

However, for people who don’t want to fuss with converting eBooks from the ePUB to mobi (Kindle) format, I have good news. There are several sources of free eBooks already formatted for the Kindle.  Following is a list of my favorites:

FreeKindleBooks 1000’s of free classic eBooks in Kindle-compatible MOBI and PRC formats.  This site organizes its collections by author and is very easy to navigate.

Manybooks Excellent resource for over 27,000 Kindle-ready books.

Just Free Books Allows you to sort by genre (eg, Children’s books) and e-reader (e.g., Kindle)

Feedbooks Includes new and public domain books.

Project Gutenberg: You can use “advanced search” to screen for Kindle-compatible books by selecting mobi (or mobipocket) under “file type.”

Mobipocket (Amazon) is nice because it includes books in several different languages.

Free kindle books on A mixture of current and public domain books.

The Free Library offers free, full-text versions of classic literary works from hundreds of celebrated authors.  It is also a terrific resource for current periodicals which are added to the site daily.

Amazon free kindle books in the public domain (over 20,000 ebooks): A helpful tip is to sort by average customer review, so you find the most highly-rated books first.  This led me to discover Beautiful Joe: The Autobiography of a Dog, by Marshall Saunders.  I was unfamiliar with this book and, after reading the description, downloaded it instantly to my Kindle.  Here is the link.

A note about Amazon: Most “free” content in the Amazon Kindle bookstore is currently restricted to North America.
