So, readers, do you like free books?
’cause I sure as heck do. Turns out that not only can you download the Kindle app for your PC or iPhone/iPod Touch, thereby completely bypassing the need to spend $200 on a Kindle, you can also get bunches of books for the Kindle app free. These range from new books, often the first of their series, who are offered free for a limited time as a promotional deal, to bunches and bunches of public-domain classics which are free always.
Check it out. My current favorites from the promotional stack are His Majesty’s Dragon and Cry Sanctuary (be warned, Cry Sanctuary contains explicit sex).
Free books! That is all that you really needed to read. Go forth, readers, and take advantage!
