Now many of you might already know about the free Kindle apps (in fact, that’s what I downloaded for my iPad and what I read all my Amazon/Kindle books on, as I don’t have a Kindle, either).
But back in the day, I used to always include links to the free Kindle reader apps on Amazon at the bottom of my bargain-book posts, but lately I’ve been forgetting. So I’m dedicating this post to those that didn’t realize this existed.
I know a few of you have been missing out on some of these awesome book deals on Amazon lately (for example, the Sherrilyn Kenyon “Dark Hunters” bundle was on sale last week). I heard a bunch of my other e-reader friends collectively groan over that one, ’cause it looks like it was an Amazon-only sale.
Michelle: Anybody know if it’s on B&N. I wish they had it on Nook too
Megan: … They never have sales like Amazon
Stephanie: Not on Nook yet!!! I’m dying to read this. I have a love hate with my Nook when this happens……which is a lot lately.
Heather: I have a nook, and many times the bargains do not match up for me or some of the authors are not listed. Makes me kinda wish I picked the Kindle instead.
Well, Heather. You can still have your Nook and enjoy a little “Kindle” too. You know… “have you cake and eat it too”. <— Tee hee!! See what I did there? Did it work? *sigh* My “corny-ness” knows no bounds…
Okay, and like… you know how it seems as if so many of our favorite indie authors seem to release their latest books on Amazon (and… sometimes it takes a bit longer for their books to show up elsewhere)? And sometimes, they publish their books strictly on Amazon (and no where else)…
Lysa: WHEN IS IT COMING TO NOOK????????????? I am dying here!!!
Krysta: I cant wait to read it!! Curse my nook for not having it yet, I guess i need just need some patience haha
Heather: will it be available for Nook? My reading buddy that I have been texting all day to discuss this with said she can’t get it!
Gabby: I can’t find it on iBooks or nook!
Hazel: Man…………B&N doesn’t have it for my nook. AHHHHHHHHHHHH
Problem solved my friends! You can continue loving your Nook (and other e-readers), and still have access to Kindle sales & books. You don’t have to wait and you don’t have to pass up an amazing Amazon Kindle book-bargain anymore. ‘Cause anyone can purchase and read Kindle books. Even if you don’t have a Kindle device, because NOW, your web browser becomes the Kindle device (with the free Kindle Cloud reader). No need to download anything using this feature, and all your books are there ready and waiting.
Amazon offers various free Kindle apps and a free Kindle Cloud reader for any and ALL of us to use. You can either use the free Kindle App for your smartphone, tablet, AND your desktop computer (just like you’re using a Kindle, but right through your web browser).
Nikki: I have a nook so I downloaded the kindle app on my computer to get to this book today! I am blown away!
So if you’re mostly using another e-reader, you’re still good to go (and can still get in on the Amazon sales and new releases) by using their Kindle app & Cloud reader <— click there and it’ll automatically take you to the Amazon cloud reader on the desktop and to the Kindle reading app page for you to choose one for your mobile platform. Log in (or create) your Amazon account, and get reading!
Kristy: First App I downloaded when I finally got my first iPhone a few months ago. LOVE IT
Maryse’s Book Blog: Me too!! I used to have a Sony e-reader, but then my husband got me an iPad and I’ve been using the Kindle app ever since. All my books in one happy app
Ivette: I have it on Nook HD and phone. I love it..!
Carrie: yep yep! i heart my kindle app! when i’m home i can read on my laptop & when i’m out & about it’s all on my phone.
Maryse’s Book Blog: The cool thing is the new “cloud app” that works with your browser, so now your web browser becomes the Kindle app. Very cool! From what I see, all the same features, and nothing to download at all. Just go with your browser and all your books are there!
Robinetta: I love the Amazon Kindle free app. I installed it on my Nook, Samsung Galaxy s5, and my tablet. I have more Kindle books downloaded on my stuff then I have from Barnes & Noble. Plus being on Amazon Prime I get daily e-mails alerting me to the newest free and deals on Kindle E-books.
Tricia: I will never be without my kindle or kindle app and my maryse.net……I wouldnt know what to read without you guys!!
YAY awesome deals and books!! And YAY free e-reader apps!!
