Books on My Kindle

If you are like me, you like to snoop through other people’s libraries to see what they are reading.  These are the titles that are presently on my Kindle.  All of them were free (except Island of the World which was a gift) either because they are in public domain or because they were offered for free for a limited time via eReaderIQ.  (Please be aware that they offer a lot of smut so you may get tired of sifting through their daily lists.)  In addition to the 44 books here, I have 65 more on my Kindle Wish List.  I've had my Kindle for a year and have definitely gotten my money's worth.  I've crossed out the titles I've already read.

You've got quite a library there at your fingertips! My husband received a Barnes & Noble Nook e-reader as a gift from his co-workers when he retired, and couldn't return it for cash, which he was thinking of spending on a Kindle. So he is using the Nook and thinks it is not very user-friendly. Also he hasn't found one free book -- they are all fairly pricey, compared to a used hard copy. And the Nook costs a lot more than the Kindle!

Hope, this is a blog post to purloin if ever I saw one.

I may list my Kindle library. That's one stealing.

I will certainly download some treasures you have that I haven't.

What plunder!

And yes, I love-love-love looking at other's library!

I've enjoyed my Kindle as well.
Thank you so much for this list.

I went straight to Amazon and downloaded several that I didn't already have.

I follow the "free" lists on Amazon as well and it gets confusing when there are so many choices. So I really appreciate your picks.

I think I won't waste as much time with poor quality books now.

Thank you!

Carol, As soon as you post your list, I'm sure I'll be "stealing" too.
