Free eBooks for Your Kindle, Nook, Sony Reader, etc.

I finally did it; I gave in and  asked for a Kindle 3 for Christmas.  (Looks like I wasn’t the only one:  “Kindle 3 Is the  Best Selling Product in Amazon History.”)   Friends and family have had Kindles for quite some time and have all been pleased with them, but I was holding out for an eReader that met all of my requirements.

Did I find it in Kindle?  No.  But, after playing with several of these eReaders at my local Best Buy, I decided Kindle was the best fit for me.  (The one thing Kindle lacks as far as my definition of the “perfect” eReader is the ability to read EPub format so that I can borrow and read books from our public library on it.)

My good friend and gadget guru, Heather Loy, had shared a blog devoted to free and low cost eBooks with me months ago.  I had added it to my Google Reader and even downloaded some of the free books to read on my iPhone, iPod Touch, and Mac.

Since my Kindle arrived, I have discovered a couple of other worthy blogs devoted to free eBooks and thought I’d share them:

Books on the Knob

Free eBooks and Tips

Kindle Nation Daily

Happy reading!

    Glad you are enjoying your Kindle. I’m sure sooner or later Amazon will figure out a way to allow you to use library books.

    I got my mom a Nook Color for xmas – so now I have a Kindle, Sony and Nook to play with! I chose a Nook because it allows for library loaning and mom wanted that feature more than any other. She doesn’t like to pay for books! Gonna spend tomorrow figuring out how to work the library loaning bit – its a pain since the Adobe ID has to be the same as the BN/Nook registration and since I already have one of each with DIFFERENT ids I got to figure out how to fix it. Wish me luck!

    Heather,
    I hope you are right about Amazon one day (soon!) figuring out how to allow their device to support library books.

    I’ll be interested to hear your comments about all three devices once you’ve had the chance to really play with the Nook. I know you don’t need luck getting the Adobe and BN/Nook ID’s to match up – you’re a gadget goddess!
