Using my Kindle, I found the bestsellers list was the only place I could find listed free Kindle books, by clicking up and selecting the 'Top 100 Free' button.

Anywhere to get the full list of books you don't have to pay for? Can't find one anywhere!

when searching use the "lowest price first" that usually works

I was really saddened to see that the Kindle books are not cheaper than paperbacks. Shouldn't they be?

Well you would think so Kath, but don't forget that e-books are subject to VAT at 20%.
The actual production cost of books is only a small part of the final cost of the book.
However I very must resent paying more for an e-book than I would for a paper book.

Surely before buying the "Kindle" you first checked the price of ebooks to download? Then it wouldn't be a surprise as to their cost.
When purchasing any item that requires extra additions this should have been taken into account.
Same sort of thing as buying a car, how many miles per gallon/km per litre, insurance, replacement parts, cost of tyres etc.
I'd be inclined to hang on before spending too much on ebooks, as history has dictated in the past with new gadgets such as TV's, Video recorders, (Remember them?) digital cameras etc, the price usually drops quite dramatically after a while, the snag is of course the wait.
Still you could always pick up a paperback to read to pass the time! (Just a thought).
I wish you all good luck in your quest for free ebooks.
May the force be with you.

Here are a couple of cheap short stories written by a crazy American girl. They are only 10-15 pages long. They are odd but I enjoyed them:

Everyday is the First Day, Everyday is the Fifth Day: Five Days in the Nut House, Five Days with Schizophrenic Lynda (A Few Pages of My Musings While Incarcerated) (Everyday Is...)

Everyday is the First Day, Everyday is the 147th Day: This is All I've Got (Drug Rehabilitation Journal) (Every Day Is...)

Look on ereaderiq.co.uk It updates daily to show kindle books that have just become free. You can register on the site, free of charge, to have a daily email listing the free books available. There are also filters, so you can search for childrens, fantasy fiction, biography etc. I find it easier to go on here, than trawl through the amazon listings. Also, if you move the cursor over a book it will pop up a description. If you like the look of it, click on that book and it'll take you straight to the amazon listing. Easy Peasy :)

type in 'free books' or 'free downloads' in the search page. This will bring up loads - some dubious - but list worth looking through.

GIVE UP. Have spent for ever talking to an AMAZON/ KINDLE person and I explained the problem.... even got him to bring up the discussion page so that he could follow my thread. Was advised to use Kindle downloads via Amazon as Amazon don't subscribe to any other site but their own..... pointed out reply from Mr Philip Sneddon , which bombed the advise out of the water . Was then told that NOT ALL BOOKS are capable of being sent to the '' address'' I live at.......
Oh dear right enough .... think I'll stick to what I'm good at .... cookers and wshing machines and even microwaves at a push lol

Hi Meg. Are you from the UK or another country? I'm not sure how buying kindle books from different countries works you see. Also, if you're from the UK and trying to download books from the Amazon UK site, have you bought any books from Amazon in the past and downloaded without problems?

MEG says:
Yes . I live in U.K..... HOWEVER the man I spoke with, , and who possibly was in a Call Centre may not have been in the U.K. , or , even from the U.K.
I buy/downloadall my books from Amazon.co.uk and even bought and registered my kindle on that site . I have had no probs whatsoever with this .
I just wanted to open up more avenues of choice as I'm an avid reader and particular books on ereader appealed to me .... free books are always good option.
Heyho , I'm determined to sort this out as no one else seems to have a problem , so it must be possible . As they say.....watch this space and I hope you'll hear me cheer when I manage. Thanks all

On the amazon.co.uk site select kindle store in the left search box and in the right one type free kindle books. A list will appear with over 2000 books in it
