I've been asked a lot of times about this - and I know it may come as a surprise to many but there are still so many people who haven't yet tried downloading ebooks from Amazon. With The Werewolf Prince and I going free, I guess it's the best time for me to take a break from writing and work on this long-postponed post. So without further ado, here's a step-by-step guide to downloading ebooks on Amazon.
1. Register an account with Amazon (we're assuming you do not have one yet).
So if you click the link above, you will be redirected (in another window) to a page that will display the image below. Take note of which email address you will be using here (and your password of course) since we will need it later.
2. Download a Kindle app (we're assuming you don't have a Kindle).
You can read Amazon books on a Kindle app for your PC, MAC, Android device, iPad, iPod touch or iPhone.
Do you have a PC or laptop running on Windows? Then you will need to download a Kindle for PC. Just click that link, download, install and register using your Amazon account using your email and password from Step 1.
Click that button I've encircled to start downloading.
You will need a Kindle for Mac for Mac users. Download, install, and register.
Go to App Store if you have an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. Search for KINDLE then download and install the app. Don't worry - it's free! Register.
Go to Google Play if you're using an Android device. Again, the application is free to download. Install then register!
3. Download an ebook for free on Amazon.
Open your favorite browser (Safari, Mozilla, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer - doesn't matter which!). You will have to buy your ebooks straight from Amazon's web page and NOT from your Kindle app. Let's be very clear on that.
With the link above, you can start typing the book titles that you know are free to purchase. An example of this would be - of course - my book The Werewolf Prince and I. Make sure you're signed in with your Amazon account by the by!
Go to your Kindle app or device and you'll see your book downloading automatically. Your downloaded books will appear under the Cloud tab if you are using a Kindle app and on the Device tab if you have your own Kindle. So that's it. Enjoy reading!
P.S. If you want to buy a paid ebook on Amazon, you will need to use a credit card or have someone buy / gift you with an Amazon gift card.
