I'm a Kindle owner, but also a librarian. When I read books, I tend to default to libraries first. Because I like free things, even if they take a little more effort.
So how do I read for free using my Kindle? First, get a library card. In addition to having my UB Bee Card, which gives me access to everything at Langsdale, Law Library, and beyond (more on that in a bit), I also have an Enoch Pratt Free Library Card. It has 'free' in the title. This means I don't pay $9.99/month and still get access to tons of books. You don't even have to live in Baltimore City - anyone that lives in Maryland can get a Pratt library card.
|Library card = free books = amazing|
|If this cat can use the eLibrary to download books, you can too|
Amazon also has free popular classics that you can download instantly. These classic titles are older, and are free because they are in the public domain (meaning they are no longer protected by copyright). You can also find free titles on archive.org, openlibrary.org, and gutenberg.org for similar books.
|So many free options!|
|All this great stuff you can access for free? It's a lot to handle.|
|I'll throw money at a good cause.|
