Am looking to load the kindle up before my holiday so after any cheapish recommendations - happy to try anything, not so keen on historical fiction though. Thank you!

www.freebookfinder.co.uk

Good website for finding free kindle books.

I love Elly Griffith's books about an archaeologist who helps police out with murder investigations. First one in the series is free.

If you are a member of your local library you should be able to download e-books for free on your kindle, you will be able to access thousands of titles and latest releases (usually can have them on your device for 3 weeks and if not needed by someone else you can renew them for longer too)
Our library uses the app 'cloud library'

Have a look at the summer sale.

Thank you I'll look at those sites. Our library only supports Kobo readers or it certainly only used to. I will check again.

Also don't forget that the classics are available free, e.g. the 39 steps, Sherlock holmes, black beauty etc

Some Elizabeth Strout books for 99p on Kindle at present - Amy and Isabelle (small town USA, single mom whose DD has affair with teacher set around 1970). Also The Burgess Boys. The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell is 99p. Reader, I married him (edited by Tracey Chevalier) short stories celebrating the Brontes is £1.99.

Getting the Classics for free is a good idea there are even collections of a novelist canon.

This is the last book I read on my kindle and I loved it www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B01CC8LU92/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1469206842&sr=8-1&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=one+last+summer+at+hideaway+bay&tag=mumsnetforum-21

Set in Cornwall, proper summer read but it did make me cry!!

If you enjoy crime fiction, google Blake Pierce. Quite a few by this author are free and worth a read.

I use Kobo as our library doesn't support Kindle for copyright reasons.

I usually use the app on my tablet or phone these days as the dear old original ereader I bought is getting very flaky and keeps freezing. The app has a handy function in the Store section which shows free ebooks. They're usually the first in series to tease you into buying more. However I have found a couple of good new authors this way, particularly Emily Larkin. The first in her Baleful Godmother series was still free on Kobo, Kindle and ITunes last time I looked.

Nice to see other Kobo readers, AlpacaLypse! (tho'I do now have a Kindle as well).

There's also gutenbwrg.org for classics, which can be loaded in .epub (non-Kindle), .mobi (Kindle), .pdf and .html (for reading on a computer screen).

Oops. I mean www.gutenberg.org
