We are all looking for ways to get free Kindle books. Well guess what? I figured it out!
I know my fellow booklovers out there will be thrilled to learn that I’ve figured out how to borrow books for my kindle (or any electric reading device) for the bargain price of FREE!
It all starts with your library card and the Libby app (https://www.overdrive.com/apps/libby/ or in your app store as Libby).
During the numerous COVID shutdowns, public library usage was heavily affected, due to the social distancing constraints. But the Libby app swooped in and allowed library patrons the ability to borrow the latest and greatest books and download them directly to their electric reading device.
The instructions for how to make this work are below. But also, a very cool hack I’ve learned is that there are several libraries in the United States that will allow you to apply for and use their library cards for the Libby app!
This is exciting because it allows you to not have to wait for a certain title while getting free books for your Kindle! Your local library has a 16-week waiting list for “The Dummies Guide to Writing Blogs for Radio Stations?” No problem! Another library system across the country has it ready for you to download right now!
This is a great hack for homeschoolers as well. There is sometimes a small fee attached to some of the larger libraries for this privilege.
