When I asked for a Kindle for my birthday 4 years ago (or was it 3? I can’t remember), I proudly explained to the naysayers, “there are so many books you can read for free!”
One of my resolutions for 2013 is to read 30 books. I’m 10 books in and it looks like I will make my goal, but I strayed from my original declarations.
“I will read and reread the classics!”
“There are so many free books I will never need to buy one!”
I purchased most of the books I read in January instead of taking advantage of the free and legal book sources available online.
So in February, I made a new resolution to stop buying books, but to continue reading towards my goal. It’s not that hard! There are more than enough books to keep me occupied for the rest of the year.
It’s occasionally tempting to buy a book that has a long wait at the library or is not available in a free (and convenient) e-book format, but I’ve held strong for 2 weeks (haha)!!
The point of this post is to direct you to free e-books, so here is a list of resources that I use.
Resources for Free E-Books
public library website (requires library card)
Kindle Owners’ Lending Library (requires prime membership)
Read for free in February (so far):
Heat Wave (Nikki Heat, #1) by Richard Castle

The Keeper of Lost Causes (Department Q, #1) by Jussi Adler-Olsen
