My Kindle has changed my life. No longer do I need to tote 10 books with me on a week-long vacation (I read 200 books a year, so I have high needs). Furthermore, I have constant access to the newest books that exist — no bookstores needed.
But one of the best parts of owning a Kindle has been the joy of discovering free Kindle ebooks. I download them frequently, and often find myself finding out about new authors, becoming interested in new genres, and even getting hooked on a new series. Here are a few great Kindle books that are free today. (Prices on Kindle can change at any time, so before you download make sure it really is free!)
