Below you will find a list of 10 free highly-rated Kindle ebooks to help get the weekend off to a good start.
There’s also a few Kindle-related deals this week where you can get 15% off when buying two, but I think it requires a Prime membership and obviously it doesn’t apply to the new Kindle Paperwhite 5.
Please note the free Kindle books listed below are free as of October 16th, 2021. Most of these titles are free for a limited time only and will expire in the next few days or hours 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 free Kindle reading apps for iPad, iPhone, and Android devices, or use a computer or web browser.
