Free Apps to Read Kindle E-Books on Any Device
Understanding how to read e-books can be frustrating at best in the beginning. I know it was for me. So when I see things like this I pass them on hoping they might help someone. The biggest misconception I see all the time is that people think they need an e-reader or e-reading device to read e-books. All you need is a computer.
Last week a friend who also has an indie pubbed novel on Amazon through the KDP program posted a link on facebook and twitter about free apps for all e-reading devices. In other words, you don't need a Kindle to buy a Kindle book. In fact, you don't even need an e-reader. You can read e-books right on your laptop or computer. It comes in handy with cookbooks in the kitchen. No need for print cookbooks anymore. You just follow the recipes from your laptop or iPad. I don't cook often, and it's helps me a lot when I do.
Here's part of the information below, taken directly from Amazon. And here's a link to read more and get the apps. Here's one just for your PC. I've done this myself. I have the Kindle app for my iPhone, my iPad, my NextBook tablet, my PCs and both my Kobo e-readers. It's not just kindle who is doing this either. You can download the Kobo apps to anything as well. I've started to enjoy my Kobo library even more on my iPhone lately.

That means with our free Kindle Reading apps, you can buy a Kindle book once, and read it on any device with the Kindle app installed.
