Free Kindle Books- Countries

Whew! It has been a while since I last blogged… shame on me. HOWEVER… we’ve been traveling and had sick children… you know… life happens!

To make it up to you, here is a list of free Kindle books. We are doing My Father’s World Exploring Countries and Cultures this year. SO… all the books today are FREE and about different countries.


All of these books were free at the time of this posting… be sure to double check before you check out! I hope this was helpful!

Favorite Kindle Apps for Kids

My family got me a Kindle Fire for Christmas. I am a big fan. The kids (especially little sis, 2 years old) really enjoy using it. I thought I’d share a few of my favorite (FREE) apps for kindle.

Angry Birds- Free

Where’s My Water- Free


Kid’s Doodle


Veggie Tales Spotisode


Animal Book


First Tanagrams


Many of the free apps are free because you have to deal with ads popping up. I’ve found that if I just turn off the wifi on my kindle when I give it to the kids, then I don’t have to worry about them clicking through any of the ads.

What are your favorite FREE apps?

More Free Kindle Books

Almost as a joke, I asked for a Kindle Fire for Christmas. I really didn’t think I’d get one, but my family pooled together and gave me Amazon money and tada… the Kindle Fire was realized.

I have had the Kindle app on my Blackberry for some time and have been collecting free books along the way… but now I have become somewhat obsessed with getting free books and apps for the Kindle.

There are so many to choose from and Amazon is always changing the prices, but here are a few that are, for the moment, free for your Kindle:

Ruby- Christian Fiction


Good for Moms of Girls

Cute Children's Book

Great for Toddlers and Preschool

Also… if you have a Kindle Fire… or an Android phone, Amazon offers a Free App each day… today’s free app is:

MobiLearn Talking Phrasebook, English-French-German-Italian-Spanish

What free apps/ books have you found for the Kindle Fire?

Oh… and don’t forget… you don’t have to have a Kindle device to take advantage of all the free books. Check out Amazon and find out how you can download a free Kindle App for your PC or Smartphone!

More FREE Kindle Books

I saw this book this morning for FREE on Kindle… then I started searching for some more… and thought I’d just share the list I found with you:

The Pursuit of God by AW Tozer

ESV Bible

The Velveteen Rabbit

The Secret Garden

If you go to the Kindle store on  Amazon, you can see all the categories of Kindle books. They show the top paid and top free books. There are SO MANY to choose from… I would caution you, however to “be careful little eyes what you see.” There is quite a bit of free stuff out there that is NOT good for you and definitely not good for your little ones. If you can weed through the junk, you’ll find some treasures.

Also.. remember, you don’t have to have an actual Kindle to enjoy these deals. You can download the Kindle App on your PC or most Smartphones. Go here for more details.

Money Saving Monday- Kindle

Okay… so you’ve seen IPads ad Kindles and Nooks where you can take your digital books on the road with you… right?

But… did you know that Amazon has a free Kindle App for most smart phones or your PC? Just head on over to Amazon and check it out.

AND… you can periodically find great books for your Kindle for FREE on Amazon. Nothing says Money Saving to me like FREE!!!!

Here are a couple of books I’ve recently downloaded for FREE!!!

Circle of Friends Cookbook – 25 Dip & Spread Recipes [Kindle Edition]

The Holy Bible, English Standard Version [Kindle Edition]

Pride and Prejudice... and a number of other Jane Austen books

We could have even bought the husband’s textbooks through Kindle for a cheaper price (if he hadn’t just checked them out of the library instead). I am digging the Kindle app.. makes me feel like I am keeping up with the times without paying the inflation!
