It’s possible to pick up great Kindle ebooks for free on Amazon. I’ll show you a couple of ways to go about it. These methods work for the Amazon UK site but may be a little different on your own Amazon store if you’re outside the UK.
Method 1: Go to your Amazon website, select Kindle Store in the drop down menu to the left of the search window, then enter your keyword. I’m showing ‘Evernote’ as an example.
This will bring up a list of Kindle ebooks about Evernote but the trick now is to change the ‘Sort by’ drop-down menu on the right side from ‘Relevance’ to ‘Price: Low to High’. And there are your free Evernote books at the top of the list.
Method 2: Again go to Amazon, mouse over ‘Kindle E-readers & Books’ from the ‘Shop by Department’ menu on the left side, then navigate to and select ‘Kindle Books’ from the fly-out menu:
This will bring up a screen of Kindle Books. Then select Kindle Best Sellers in the menu on the left side.
This will bring up a new window where you can select ‘Top 100 Free’ rather than ‘Top 100 Paid’. Then select the Genre you want on the left side. I’ve chosen ‘Computing’ as I know that’s where the Evernote books will be. Then just browse through the top 100 best selling free Kindle books on computing.
So there’s two ways to search free Kindle ebooks on Amazon. It’s worth going back regularly as paid books are often promoted to free for short spells. Good hunting!
