As someone who reads books every day I have found a great way to get great Christian books for free from the Kindle store. The problem is that the great Christian books that are offered free on the Kindle store are normally only free for a few days.
I have set up a system to get notified any time a book is added to the top 100 free Kindle books in Amazon.com. Just for good measure, I will give you two different ways to do it.
Get Notified in Your RSS Reader
If you use an RSS reader like Google Reader or Feedly, simply subscribe to this feed. http://goo.gl/MwJUP
Then, any time a new book is added, it will show up in your reader.
Get An Email Notification
For those who are not RSS savvy, you can get an email sent to you with a link to any book that is added to the 100 top free Christian Kindle books. This uses a free service IFTTT (If This Then That).
1. Go to IFTTT and click the Join IFTTT button. (link)
There is a pretty bright button, pretty hard to miss.
2. Go into your channels tab and insert your email address on the email channel. (link)
Now you have done all the technical wonking necessary. IFTTT works off of what it calls recipes. Put simply, If This happens, Then do That. In this case we are going to tell it that when a book is added to the top 100 free Christian Kindle book list, then send me an email link to it with a description.
Fortunately you don’t have to make this stuff up on your own. You can share recipes as well as use any recipe others share. I have shared the recipe below.
Click the pretty Use Recipe button. (link)
Now you will get an email when a new book is added with a picture of the cover, the title, description, and a link to buy it for the amazing price of free.
Expand Your Library, Stock Up On Books You Will Never Read
It’s really that simple.
Just today I got “Praying the New Testament: Praying the Scriptures with Elmer Towns” (link) Will I ever read it? Who knows. But when I do, it will be free!
Let me know if you signed up and what books you scored.
