5. Get library books on Kindle with OverDrive

Many libraries allow you to check out eBooks for 1-2 weeks at a time. They’ll seamlessly deliver them directly to your Kindle device or your free Kindle reading app. All you need to get started is a library card and internet access. Then, head to Overdrive.com to find your local libraries by following these instructions:

  • Using the map that appears on Overdrive, click on one of your neighborhood libraries.
  • A web page with the available eBooks from that library should appear. Browse through the selections or search for a specific title until you find one you’d like to borrow.
  • Click “Borrow” to begin the checkout process.
  • You’ll be asked to sign into your Amazon account to choose which device the eBook should be delivered to. Or, if you’d prefer, you can download the free Overdrive app for Android, iPhone, and other devices.

Depending on your library, the number of available eBooks may vary, and you might be put on a waiting list to borrow popular titles. Despite these potential downsides, we’re huge fans of borrowing library books through Overdrive.

6. Visit BookSliced

The free book search on BookSliced lets you filter through available titles on both Amazon and Apple Books.

8. Try Kindle Unlimited for 30 days

Much like an Amazon Prime membership, which provides members with “free” 2-day shipping that adds up to $120 per year, Kindle Unlimited provides “free” Kindle books for $9.99 per month. However, Kindle Unlimited does offer an immense collection of books, and you can sign up for a 30-day free trial. Simply cancel as soon as your 30 days are up to avoid any fees!

9. Browse the master list of free Kindle books

Here’s the link to the master list of free Kindle books on Amazon. As you click through this list, you’ll notice a few things. First, this page will show you the total number of free eBooks on Amazon at that moment. Look in the upper left corner to find this number, as shown in the screenshot below:

Next, you may notice that Amazon often puts paid books in the free book section. To remove those, look for the box in the upper right corner that says “Sort by: Featured.” Click it to change it to “Price: Low-High” to just view free books.

Lastly, to find books in your favorite genre, the left side of the page should display a navigation bar similar to the one shown below. Just click on a category to be taken to the free book selection in that genre.

Furthermore, you can delve into more niche subgenres by using the same navigation panel.

Another way to access the list is to visit the Kindle store and type “free” into the search bar. When you hit “Enter,” the books may appear in a random variety of genres. Simply use the navigation menu on the left side of the page to click on your preferred genre.

10. Use Kindle Advanced Search

Kindle eBooks Advanced Search allows you to set specific filters to find books that match your interests. You can search for titles by keyword, author, publisher subject matter, and even price! After setting your preferred filters, simply click the box labeled “Sort results by,” and select “Price: Low to High.” When you hit search, the results will list free books first, followed by $0.99 books, and so on.

For example, if you want to find free erotic romance novels, type “erotic romance” in the keywords box. Then, select “Price: Low to High,” hit search, and you’ll find yourself with a tailored list of free books..
