Yes it’s true you can read Kindle books without owning a Kindle e-reader.

So many people think that you need to own a Kindle from Amazon in order to read all the books and magazines they have available in their vast library.

However the truth is you can start reading any of their books right this minute!

Since you are reading this post I assume you have a computer/tablet/smartphone of some sort. And as long as you have that you can start your reading right now!

Of course Amazon would love you to buy one of their Kindle models and consume all the media through that, but you can do it in many different ways.

First if you want to get a Kindle, just hope over to Amazon and peruse their available offerings.

If you have a smart phone or a tablet you can download the Amazon app for them.

iPhone/iPad/Android devices all have an app available for free, just find your device here and download the app.

If you don’t own a smartphone or tablet you can download the Amazon Reader right to your computer. It is a free program that makes it easy to read right on your computer, just download the appropriate program here.

Now if you don’t want to install anything on your machine, there is still one more option.

You can read any Amazon title right in your browser with their Amazon Cloud Reader that works right inside any of the major browsers.

All you need is an Amazon account to get started. You can get to the Amazon Cloud Reader by clicking here.

Now that you know how you are going to read, you need to find some titles to read.

There are always FREE books that you can start with and some are really good! You should check back often because Amazon is always updating their lists of books.

Then of course you can search for Fiction or Non-Fiction among many other genres in Amazon’s paid section.

Don’t forget they also have Magazines that you can read as well.

I hope that this has helped you understand you DON’T need a Kindle to download and read Amazon eBooks.

So what’s holding you back? Get to reading… :)

  1. Yep, I have the Kindle app downloaded to my Iphone as well as the Nook app. I own a Nook, and the app syncs to my nook, so any book I download, I can access it on my Iphone.

    • Same thing with the Kindle apps and readers, they all sync to each other so you never lose your place in the book you are reading. Really love the Kindle better than the Nook, but that is just my personal preference after using both of them.
