With all the money being spent this Cyber Monday weekend, it’s time to get something for free, so here’s a roundup of 10 free Kindle books.
So far this year Amazon’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday Kindle deals have been a total joke. $79 for the Kindle Paperwhite 3 is a good deal, especially without ads, but that’s the only Kindle deal they’ve offered.
Would it kill them to take $30 off one of the current Kindle models? They’ve had the new Paperwhite 4 on sale at Amazon UK for the past week but it’s still full retail in the US.
Hopefully Amazon will surprise us tomorrow with a Kindle sale but their Cyber Monday press release doesn’t mention any Kindle deals whatsoever, just Kindle ebook sales.
Keep an eye on the Kindle Holiday Deals page for new deals, but at this point I don’t know why they even bothered to create a dedicated page for a few measly deals.
Last year they had several Kindle models on sale, including refurbished Kindles, and they had Kindle Unlimited subscriptions for 40% off. This year all we get is a discount on an older model that has just been replaced. Prime Day deals were better than this.
Please note that the free Kindle books listed below are free as of November 25th, 2018. Most of these titles are free for a limited time only and will expire in a few days before going back to the regular list price.
A good place to find more free Kindle books is on the free bestsellers list at Amazon.
You don’t need to own a Kindle ebook reader or a Fire tablet to read these free ebooks; you can use a free Kindle reading app for iPad, iPhone, Blackberry, and Android devices, or use a computer or web browser.
