Kindle Free E-books, Yes Really!


FREE E-books! I know it sounds like a come on, but this is a valid program through the Amazon Kindle library. Author Ginger Simpson shared the information on the Muse Authors loop. 


I already downloaded four books....mostly self-help, so far. You can download anything that sounds interesting to you for free, but if you don't like it, just delete it. If you subscribe to the service, you will receive the list of available e-books in your e-mail inbox.


I always wonder why. What's the point of giving away an e-book? I believe it is purely a promotional reason. First, amazon gets a lot of traffic and more exposure to their product resulting in more sales in the store. I'm sure the author hopefully "sells" a book hoping the reader will like the offering and return to spend real money on one of her books to gain a reader for all the present and future books in her list.


So it sounds as if we all win with such a promotion. Incidentally there are not just a few books for free. There are over 2000 at this writing. I'm sure there will be one or more you might like to get. Hey, it's free!! Have fun.
