17 Places Where You Can Find FREE Kindle and Nook Downloads

Now that our iPad2 raffle was a huge success, I am trying to decide how to use those extra dollars. As a teacher-librarian, I am always interested in getting our students to read and enjoy reading, so I thought the next big step was getting eReaders for the library. I am still on the fence as to which one to purchase, so I thought I'd start my research by seeing how many sites have free downloads for Kindle and Nook. I was surprised at the results; there are many ways to get free downloads for both eReaders.

Barnes and Noble Free Nook Books- search 0.00 and get a listing of free eBooks

Bookyards- pdf files can be ported to your Kindle

Books Buddy- a Nook app to locate free books

Digital Library NJ- Kindle, Nook; library card needed

eBooks Habit- regular postings

eReaderPerks- Kindle, Kobo and Nook; also, the "latest device news, book/ereader reviews and author interviews."

Feedbooks- Kindle, Nook; public domain books

Google eBooks: Best of the Free- Kindle, Nook

Inkmesh- search engine for free eBooks, including Kindle and Nook

Internet Archive- Kindle, Nook

Kindle Store's Top 100 Free

ManyBooks-Kindle, Nook; 29,000 downloadable books

Mobipocket- Kindle

The Open Library- Kindle, Nook; one million titles

Penn State University's Electronic Classic Series Site- Kindle, Nook; pdf files

Pixel of Ink- free and bargain Kindle books

Project Gutenberg- Kindle, Nook; 33,000 downloadable books

Public Libraries- Kindle, Nook; check your state and local libraries (I have listed my state of NJ above)

***Here is a comparison chart of Kindle vs Nook.***


  1. I like - they post several each day and they ignore free books with no or low reviews.

  4. Hello,

    my name is Adam Kisiel and with my colleagues I run Goodkindles (
    We have started in 2011, in 2012 we have received a lot of attention and currently we are a quite popular kindle book website.

    I have seen your articles about websites where readers can get ebooks for free. We are also such a site, because a lot of authors, while submitting their books to us, connect it with a free promotion on amazon. This way our readers can download these books for free for a short period of time.

    I would like to ask, would it be possible that you include our site here as well?

    What is important, we are one of the most popular kindle promotional webistes for authors, what you can easily verify by searching a bit about us in the web. In 2012, we have been included on the "Great Websites for Marketing & Connecting with Readers" list by Jeff Bennington from The Kindle Book Review. We would be honored if you could include us as well.

    Best regards,

    Adam Kisiel
