Did you know that you can get free Kindle books for your Amazon Kindle reader? This is in addition to the Kindle books, newspapers and magazines that you can download to your Kindle from Amazon. (If you don’t already have an Amazon Kindle reader you can order an Amazon Kindle reader here).

It turns out that it is extremely easy to send any document in either PDF, .txt., or .doc format to your Kindle. How? You just email the document to your Kindle, and it automatically converts it to a Kindle document or book!


(If you haven’t already set up an email address for your Kindle, just go into your Amazon account, to the Kindle settings, and you can set one up – this gives you an actual email address *on your Kindle* – at which your Kindle can receive email – such as, documents and ebooks.)

Now, go to the online open (out of copyright) book publisher of your choice – we like Project Gutenburg, at http://www.gutenberg.org/

There you can search through their online catalog” of over 25,000 books, all of which are free!

Let’s pick one, for sake of example:

A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court by Mark Twain

When you go to this page, you’ll see that it offers the book to you in a few different formats, including HTML, and plain text (ascii).

 

Be sure to pick plain text (ascii).

This will take you to a web page where the entire text of the book is displayed in your web browser.

Simply highlight all of this text (usually under the Edit menu of your browser, using an option called “select all”) and then “copy” it.

Now, just paste it into your text editor, and either save it as a .txt (plain text) or a .doc (Word format) document, or “print” it as a PDF (select “print” as if you are going to print it, but then select the “print to PDF” option ).

That’s it!

Now, just email that file to your Kindle’s email address, and it will automatically show up on your Kindle just like any other Kindle book!

Pretty cool, eh?
