How to get free (and cheap) books for your Kindle
Kindle Owners' Lending Library is available for Amazon Prime members—paid Amazon Prime, paid Amazon Prime Student, day free trial, and customers receiving a free month of Prime benefits with a Fire tablet—who own a Kindle e-reader, Fire tablet, or Fire phone, and features hundreds of thousands of titles. Books borrowed from the Kindle Owners' Lending Library have no due dates and can be downloaded from the Cloud on other Kindle e-readers, Fire tablets, and Fire phones registered to the same Amazon account. Prime members can borrow one book from Kindle Owners' Lending Library each calendar month. You can download the book to compatible devices registered to the same Amazon account or to the account of adults in the same Amazon Household. Available titles may change each calendar month. Note: If you've already borrowed a book from Kindle Owners' Lending Library for the current month, you see "Monthly limit reached" underneath the Read for Free button in the Kindle Store. If you cancel your Amazon Prime membership or your Amazon Prime membership expires after you borrow a book, you will lose access to the book you borrowed.
