You don’t need to own a Kindle eReading device to read digital eBooks purchased from Amazon.com in Kindle format. Yes, I am sure about this because I have downloaded and read numerous Kindle books and I do not own a Kindle device.
So how did I read them? Here’s how… I have a FREE Kindle reading application installed on my MAC, on my PC and on my iPod Touch.
KINDLE FOR IPHONE (or iPod Touch) Read about it online or in the App Store on your phone
So here is the really cool part. No wires! Even if I browse and buy the eBook on my laptop computer, the moment I turn on my iTouch (within a WiFi zone) and open the Kindle app, it browses and syncs to my account, and automatically downloads any new purchases.
Amazon offers FREE Kindle books every day so if you check back often, you can fill up your reading list for nothing. It also allows you to Sample a book by sending you the beginning of the book for free. I’m not sure if the length of the sample is based on words, or characters, or pages, but for my Crossing the Line, the sample I downloaded was nearly two full chapters.
Give it a try. Download the Kindle apps to your device, grab a sample or two, go find today’s free book. What do you have to lose?
