Kindle e-Reader on cloth

Find all the Kindle books that are currently free on Amazon in once place (Amazon US only).

Amazon has an ongoing selection of Kindle books you can download for free.
There's a lot of them, but you can choose genres and categories that make browsing for what you want to read easier. Amazon rotates books in and out of the free category. If there's a book you want to read, it's better to get it sooner rather than waiting; it might disappear.

It's good to make sure the book you've chosen is $0.00. Amazon lists Kindle Unlimited membership books and free books together. Kindle Unlimited books have a $0.00 price and a logo. Purchase prices for non-Kindle Unlimited members are below the logo, either $0.00 or the current purchase price of the book.

You can read Kindle books on iOS, Android, Mac, and PC. Find links to the apps and downloads here:

I already have over 16,000 FREE eBooks ! Thanks.

You're welcome. :) That's quite a few books!

Doesn't work for Australia - keeps transferring to Australian Amazon site - even though US site says ships online to international. Australian site does not have any free.

I suggest you use a browser like EPIC which allows you to specify what country you are coming from. It's free, based on Chrome code and is a useful addition for when you want to do this kind of thing.

Good suggestion. :)

You would still need an amazon us account to download books.

These are mostly romance novels. I'm interested in freely downloadable epub mysteries by John Dickson Carr, Ross MacDonald, Ngaio Marsh, Leslie Charteris, P.D. James, and about detectives, such as John Cardinal, Harry Dresden, Salvo Montalbano, Jack Reacher, Harry Bosch, Elvis Cole, Alex McKnight, Logan McRae, Armand Gamache, John Rebus, and Lord Peter Wimsey. I've already got all of Agatha Christie's works.

Huh. I'm not sure what genre or category (on the left side of the screen) you were looking at, but the categories I checked before posting this had no romance books. I looked at these genres and their categories: Computers and Technology, Travel, Arts and Photography, Reference, and Biographies & Memoirs.
The landing page has a lot of romance novels though, that's for sure.

I think their classification system is jumbled, but the categories and sub-categories are more reflective of the topic.

You could check the Mystery, Thriller & Suspense category for some of those authors, but I'm not sure that any of them would ever show up in the free category. Lee Child (Jack Reacher), Michael Connelly (Harry Bosch) and Robert Crais (Elvis Cole) are all popular authors. I've don't think I've ever seen popular and best-selling authors in the free category, and I've seen only a few authors at that level show up in discounted books. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Amazon's eBooks are downloaded in their propietary format, though they can converted to ePub on the web or using a program like Calibre.

You're in luck - Dorothy L. Sayers' Lord Peter Wimsey series is FREE here: https://www.fadedpage.com/showbook.php?pid=20080401.

For current books, still within copyright and by authors who are still alive and need to eat, please consider buying an ebook once in a while (and then use Calibre to remove the darn DRM), or just check out what your library has to offer.

Sadly this is for US based Kindle customers only

Sadly, that is often the case. :(

I'll amend the article, thank you for mentioning it.
