‘I got like 200 books last time’: Amazon customer shares trick for getting free Kindle books without a Kindle Unlimited subscription

Avid readers know the feeling: After spending days or even weeks reading a book, running out of anything new to read can make people feel like they need a quick trip to the library or local bookstore.

An upcoming opportunity for e-readers will allow book lovers to effectively “fill” their Kindles or other e-readers with free romance literature.

Four times a year, romance writers and publishers host an Amazon event to bring hundreds of books to readers for free with the click of a button. The Stuff Your Kindle Day event has been highly publicized by bookish content creators.

Ahead of the next Kindle refill event scheduled for September 20, 2023, book lover TikToker @probablyoffreading has shared a step-by-step tutorial to help readers find free books on this day.

“They are very different from Kindle Unlimited,” he says in the video. “With Kindle Unlimited, you’re only allowed to borrow 20 books to have in your library at a time, while with Stuff Your Kindle Day, many books cost zero dollars, so you buy them for zero dollars and they’re yours to keep all the time. whatever you want.”

First, @probablyoffreading instructs viewers to log into their Amazon account and go to the all books section of the website, not just the Kindle books section. From there, readers can select the book format (Kindle editions) and select a category to view the books. In the tutorial, @probablyoffreading selects the romance genre, then the fantasy subgenre, and sorts the results from low to high price range.

“Now you can see that buying Kindle costs zero dollars, so let’s click on it,” he says. “Look at that. Buy now with one click.”

Several viewers shared that they participated in past events and were able to download “hundreds” of book titles, although the quality of some was not satisfactory.

“Last time I downloaded about 150 and have since read 2,” one commenter wrote. “But of course I’ll be there again hahaha.”

“I got like 200 books last time… I still have a lot to read,” another user said. “But yes, we are going to get many more.”

“Last time, in June or July, I managed to get more than 300 books,” echoed one viewer. “I only read 4 though.”

The Daily Dot contacted @probablyoffreading via email regarding the video.
