All of you who ask for free downloads of books.
Don’t you understand that writers are trying to make a living at their craft and every time you download something for free, you are taking money from them? Why do you continue to ask the same question?With very few exceptions, you are not going to find the good stuff for free.How would you like it if…
I agree with you.I hope to become a published author someday, and, from being on that side, I’d be furious if someone did something like that to one of my works.I would like to say, however, Thank you to all of you who told the ebook people that they ought to go buy the book at a bookstore.Writer’s works aren’t just something for enjoyment. It is a PART of them. We write with our souls, hoping that people will be able to empathize with them and enjoy what we have learned from life and put it to good use. How can you manage defame that by settling for a knock-off version?Grow some respect for the authors you claim to love, or give up reading. You can always order books online and pay for them through amazon… or ebay, respectively.And for all of you who have book projects and procrastinated, it serves you right for not picking up a copy in advance, and I only hope that you can’t find the book that you have assignments on. Maybe next time you’ll think about doing the project on time, instead of putting it off.
how to download books for kindle or nook.
I’m going to be purchasing some e-reader soon(most likely the kindle) but before i do i was wondering if there was someway to download books from some other source for cheaper than normal? kinda like some sort of napster for e-readers? I like to read books but don’t really know if i would want to pay $10…
First off, as an author I am going to try to put away from sadness that you are looking for a way to steal someone’s hard work and give you some options where you can get cheaper books without making the 12 hours of work a day an author puts into their hard earned finished products be all in vain. (stepping off soapbox now to give some practical advice :)1st-if you get a Kindle, which I have and highly recommend, Amazon offers a ton of free and discounted books (legit I might add) The following link will take you to Amazon Kindle’s bestsellers, if you notice, the column on the left is paid books ( many as cheap as 99cents) and on the right is the free column: http://tinyurl.com/47kbg7r2nd-if you are an avid reader, consider becoming a “professional reader” by starting a book review blog or something of the sort, and you can have access to digital Advanced Reader Copies. My favorite website for this is http://www.netgalley.com However, you must be a responsible reader and prove yourself before they dish out a ton of books to you. I’ve cultivated a relationship with the publishers on that site and I have over a hundred books waiting in my queue, all free.3rd-The library is really embracing ebooks. As far as i know, you can check out ebooks at the library which stay on your Kindle for 2 weeksPlease, I implore you, find legitimate ways to get your books. You have no idea how much work goes into writing a book. There are plenty of ways to get them at reduced prices, or even free. If you are interested in starting book blog, please feel free to take a look at mine. I have all the free books I want 🙂 http://www.thebookbuff.blogspot.comP.S. I highly recommend the Kindle over any other e-readers. The colored readers are very bad for your eyes, and since the Kindle is an Amazon product, the books are cheaper than say the Barnes and Noble Nook.

What’s up with kindle.
how does it work? is it like an ipod where you have to buy every book from amazon? can you download your own books? copy and paste things to the kindle?
See the review here. It can download books anywhere with 3G access:http://www.speedreaderxreview.com/amazon-kindle-20-review-speed-readers-complete-thoughts-on-this-hot-new-deviceUpdated: Yes, you need to buy books, but they are generally cheaper than actual books as they are average at $10 or lower. If the books are in public domain you can even download them for free. Here are the Kindle books best-sellers, you can check the price:http://tinyurl.com/kindle-bestsellers
Amazon Kindle. How to get books on it.
I really want to an Amazon Kindle but how do you put the books in? Do you need a certain program?
It’s a piece of cake to get books onto a Kindle. The great thing is you don’t need any special program, unlike Apple with their iTiunes.You can download the books onto your computer with your normal browser and then simply copy them to the documents folder of your Kindle by connecting it to the computer via the USB cable it comes with. Once it’s connected it just looks like another disk drive on your computer and you can use the Windows Explorer (assuming you’re using Windows) to drag and drop the files onto the Kindle.That of course begs the question of where to get the books in the first place. There are quite a few sites which have free books to download, for example www.gutenberg.org.Here are more links (they may not all work) which I gleaned from some else’s answer, but didn’t record who it was, my apologies:http://online-novels.blogspot.com/2006/0…http://www.howtodecide.com/ebook-downloa…http://openlibrary.org/http://www.archive.org/details/textshttp://www.manybooks.net/http://www.mobileread.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=132http://www.tkqlhce.com/click-4216550-10755858http://www.feedbooks.com/http://www.baen.com/http://www.barnesandnoble.com/ebooks/index.asp?r=1&isIndexPage=1&cm_mmc=Entelechy%20Corporation-_-k265801-_-j35623141k265801-_-ebook%20store&IF=NThere are also sites which ask for money for downloading the books.Even if you don’t want to use your computer to get books onto your Kindle you can download them directly using the Kindle’s own simple web browser. Internet access is via WiFi, or if you buy the 3G Kindle model you have the additional option of using the mobile phone network. You can of course download from the Amazon web site. Amazon offers free books as well as ones you pay for.
How do Kindle downloads work.
Do you have to pay to download books when you buy a Kindle? If so how much/how often? Any details on how it all works would be very much appreciated.Thank you in advance,Paul.
You have to pay for the Kindle book itself, but it is free for the download once you buy the book, and you can download as many times as you want for the Kindle books you own for free.Kindle books are cheaper than actual books. You can see here for price of the best sellers:http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2Fs%3Fie%3DUTF8%26rs%3D154606011%26sort%3D-edition-sales-velocity%26ref%255F%3Dsr%255Fst%26qid%3D1236505696%26rh%3Dn%253A154606011%26page%3D1&tag=moreinfo-po-20&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=390957There are also tens of thousands of books you can get them at a cheap price of under $1 or even for free, you can see them from the links below:http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2Fs%3Fie%3DUTF8%26node%3D133141011%26field-price%3D1-99&tag=moreinfo-po-20&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=390957http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2Fs%3Fie%3DUTF8%26node%3D154606011%26redirect%3Dtrue%26p%255F36%3D0-0&tag=moreinfo-po-20&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=390957And in case you are in area that don’t have wireless access for your Kindle 2, you can still download books with your computer and copy them to the Kindle through USB cable. Here is an extract on how it is done from the Kindle 2 sales page:————————————–…Personal DocumentsKindle makes it easy to take your personal documents with you, eliminating the need to print. Each Kindle has a unique and customizable e-mail address. You can set your unique email address on your Manage Your Kindle page. This allows you and your approved contacts to e-mail Word, PDF documents, and pictures wirelessly to your Kindle for a small per document fee–currently only 10¢ per document. Kindle supports wireless delivery of unprotected Microsoft Word, PDF, HTML, TXT, JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP, PRC and MOBI files.You can email your PDFs wirelessly to your Kindle. Due to PDF’s fixed layout format, some complex PDF files may not format correctly on your Kindle.If you are not in a wireless area or would like to avoid the fee, you can send attachments to “name”@free.kindle.com to be converted and e-mailed to your computer at the e-mail address associated with your Amazon.com account login. You can then transfer the document to your Kindle using your USB connection. For example, if your Kindle email address is [email protected], send your attachments to [email protected]
how do you download books on a kindle.
I was thinking about getting one, but i dont know if you have to pay for every book when you download it.
Amazon offers mostly commercial books and some free ones. With the commercial books you have to pay for it once for unlimited use. There are also hundreds of free ebooks vailable on the web which you can load on your kindle using a usb cable.The best deal going right now for a kindle is to get a refurbished kindle 2 for only $110 (includes a 1 year warranty from amazon):http://www.syncpedia.com/goto/refurbishe…At that price it’s a true steal.
With the Amazon Kindle E-reader, how do you pay for books. And do you have to.
I was recently looking at Amazon.com and saw their new Kindle E-reader. I am thinking about buying one. I would imagine you would have to pay for the books you download but how do you pay for them?
You set up an account with Amazon (if you do not already have one) and when you buy your Kindle, it will automatically be registered to that account. You must set up a 1-click option in order to buy items for your kindle. That simply means that you have a credit card on file and you only have to press one button to place your order.The books you buy (or get free) from Amazon are mostly in .AZW format, which is Amazon’s proprietary DRM (copy protection) format. When you see a book you want, either on your kindle or at Amazon, you just have to click on the buy-with-1-click button and the book will download to your Kindle, right away if you have the whispernet turned on, or when you do get around to turning it on, from your home screen, just pick “check for new items” and anything you have bought that has not been downloaded to your Kindle will then download.You can also find loads of free books for the kindle at places like feedbooks.com and gutenbergpress.com. Books should be in .prc or .mobi format. Many free sites have a “kindle” option so you don’t have to figure it out. Feedbooks will even allow you to use whispernet wireless to download directly to the Kindle as will Mobileread.com.These free books are books that are out of copyright, so they are mostly over 50 years old, but all the classics are there.Occasionally, publishers will have free e-book promotions so you have to watch out for those. Baen.com, a sci-fi publisher has many free books listed. It’s a marketing experiment where they encourage authors to give away the first book in a series to see if it generates sales.I’ve found that the Kindle does what it’s supposed to do very well, which is display books. It does other things less well. For instance, I don’t like shopping for books on my Kindle, or using the web in general. It’s just too cumbersome for my taste. I do most of my Amazon shopping from my computer and download my purchases later.Amazon is not saying when the next version of the Kindle will be released. There’s been some speculation that it would be this year, but Amazon has vehemently denied this. They say sometime next year. Whether the next version will be radically different or better than this version, who can say. My guess is that changes in the hardware will be mostly cosmetic, and that most, if not all firmware and software changes will be available as an update to the present kindles.So, if you really, really want a kindle, you might as well go for it. It’s well worth the money and you’ll probably enjoy it. If you don’t, you can always send it back!
Can I download books for free for my NOOK e-reader.
I don’t own any type of credit card or gift card. A friend sent me a NOOK from USA ,I live in Greece. Is it totally useless here? Can I somehow get books for my nook for free? I have a computer. Would I be able to download books from my pc and then send them to my NOOK via USB? Already tried “Kindley…
You can probably get free nooks that writers are simply giving away. Since they don’t even think they’re worth paying for, that tells you something of the quality. The idea of getting an ereader is to them pay for books to read. All you need for a “credit card,” if you don’t have the credit to get one, is to buy a prepaid card. Google Visa or Mastercard and check out their sites for how.If you can’t afford the books, you’re friend’s good intention was a waste of his/her money.If “Kindley App” means Kindle, there’s a good reason that doesn’t work. Nook is Barnes and Noble’s ereader. Kindle is Amazons. They’re competitors, so they don’t want you buying the competitor’s brand and then using their stuff.
How can you download free books for Kindle.
Any sites other than amazon?
Several web sites offer online full-texts of books that are out of copyright, e.g. www.gutenberg.org.However, aside from the copyright owner, which is almost always the author or their publisher, ANYONE who posts, distributes, or transmits the text of these books online is violating both the U.S. and the International Copyright laws, infringing on Intellectual Property, and can be fined and jailed for it. (In general, anything first published within the last 52 years in the U.S. will still be in copyright. When the law was changed, it became copyright duration matched the rest of the work, i.e. the author’s/copyright owner’s lifetime plus 50 years.)Writers make a living by creating their work. To read or use it without paying for it, is STEALING, pure and simple.If the work is valuable enough to read, it should be paid for.
