Have James Patterson, sue gratton, Jodi pocult, the girl with the dragon tattoo books, 50 shades book, Harry potter books

If you want any/all, pm me your email address

I've bought some on eBay and got some from a friend
You can buy really cheap ones on eBay, just not latest releases

If you click into the kindle store you can see the top 100 books and the top 100 free books on the right hand side of the page - the free ones from the official site tend to be classics and random little known authors

Download Calibre

Go to website tuebl Here is the link
http://tuebl.ca/search

Go to "Search", remember to search for authors last name, first name (eg - King, Stephen)
or you can go to "Browse" and search different genres etc.

To download a book click on its cover and then select download as epub
Save it

To put onto kindle you open up Calibre and click on "Add Books"
You then click "Convert Books" - there is a dropdown list on the right hand side, select MOBI.
(I usually select all I want to put on Kindle at once - ctrl button and select whatever books)
When jobs are completed you connect the kindle to the pc and click "Add to Device".

Bit fiddly but hey ho it's free and when you do it once or twice it's easy peasy.
