Free Kindle Books - Fabulous Find Friday


Yay!  Another linky party!  

I'm linking up with Elizabeth at Fun in Room 4B to share my newest addiction.  I love reading (when there is time) and even more, I love not having to pay for good books.

So I started following Pixel of Ink a couple of months ago and started loading up free books onto my Kindle.  Now you may already know about this site, but it was new to me.    

  

That's what this website does - it just finds free and sale Kindle books and sends me an email (or posts it on their FB page) to let me know what to look out for.  They have the description of the book and the link, and it's just a click away from downloading onto my machines.  Yes, plural - machines.  For Dr. Seuss' birthday my class this past year had a Read-a-thon and raised enough money for a NowBoard! and a Kindle Fire for the classroom.  Then I bought one for the classroom as well using gift cards, and I have my "old" one too. (I call it old because it doesn't have the fancy color settings that you need for picture books.)  In the past couple of months I have downloaded hundreds of free books for myself, my own little kids, and my older students.

It's more than just the original Pixel of Ink.  They have a sister site called Pixel of Ink - Young Edition, and then other ones too for Christian fiction, non fiction, recipes, etc.

I hope this helps someone out there in blogland.  Remember, to read Kindle books you don't have to own a Kindle - you just have to have that app somewhere on your computer, iPad, or phone.  Anything to get kids (and adults) reading, right?  

Hope you have a great day!

Sincerely,
