Computers + Books + Free.  What a deal!  

📖 

You can read books for free on your computer or your phone or tablet.  Here is a list of free Kindle “ebooks.”  You don’t need to have a Kindle to download and read these books.  You can use the Kindle Cloud Reader here.  All you need to do is register.

You can also download a free Kindle app for your smartphone, computer or tablet.

Here are a few free apps:

1.     Amazon Kindle - advantages:

Personalize - Adjust the text size, change the screen's brightness, choose your background color, and read in either portrait or landscape mode.

Look Up Words - Tap and hold any word in a book to view the word's definition with the built-in dictionary or use the Google or Wikipedia links to get more information.

Collections - Organize your books, docs, and magazines into categories with a few easy taps.

EXCLUSIVE - X-Ray for Books - Tap on any page as you read to access X-Ray, an easy way to uncover more from the books you love. Instantly find chapters and locations that mention ideas, characters, and important places, as well as background info, biographies and more from Shelfari and Wikipedia.

2.    Calibre – the one that I downloaded.  It received a 4.5 star rating.

3.    Mobipocket – it received a 4 star rating.

I also researched how to “borrow” books on your Kindle or Kindle app.  If you can get a library card in the US, you can borrow Kindle books.  If not, here are a few links about using the Kindle outside the US:

 1.    http://www.cnet.com/forums/discussions/e-reader-downloads-overseas-553875/

 2.    http://www.ehow.com/how_8583955_access-library-book-kindle.html

 3.    http://lifelessonsmilitarywife.com/?p=494

 4.    http://ebookfriendly.com/download-free-kindle-books/

Here’s another link that looks interesting.  It’s about an Israeli initiative to open a site where owners of Kindle books can lend and loan them out.

And, finally, here is a link to the new AACI ebook library.
