It’s easy to read books on your computer or mobile device. Especially if you travel or like to have something to read while waiting for appointments, reading on the go can be a great way to catch up with books.
Many classic books are in the public domain and available for free. Correct me if I’m wrong, but the books I see on internet sites seem to be in PDF format (which is okay – see note) while your local library may offer the book in a more readable eBook format.
Free eBooks from Bloggers
Bloggers and other internet sites may offer free eBooks, like Michael Hyatt of Thomas Nelson publishers. He offers Creating a Personal Life Plan if you sign up for eMail updates to his blog (which I recommend).
Are you offering a free book from your site?
But I don’t have a Kindle
Not a problem. Amazon wants you to buy their eBooks, so they offer a free app. You don’t need to own a Kindle; you can read Kindle books on your desktop, laptop, smartphone, or tablet, using this app. You can also read the books on the Amazon cloud in a browser (this is helpful if you have access to a computer, but don’t have your personal device with you).
Try it out! Here’s some free Francis Chan books currently available to Amazon Prime members:
Do you have any more free eBooks to recommend to us?

- I read PDF files in the docs area of my Kindle Fire. I have quite a few PDF files from CruPress Green, home to all the ministry resources of the Cru Campus Ministry.
