Here is the current list of free Kindle eBooks. Many of these are available to everybody! For the longest time, I thought they were only for Amazon Prime members, however I discovered anybody can read these free eBooks with any number of free Kindle apps. Be it on your phone, computer, or tablet, you can download a Kindle app and get these books for free!
Hopefully, you can find something fun to read. ? ? And as usual, please check the price before you download. These free books are often time-based and will go up in price after a certain amount of time, so before you download, make sure the price is $0.00!
For ebook pricing, Draft2Digital recommends you keep your price between US$2.99 and US$9.99, though we will accept anything from US$0.99 to US$39.99. Ebooks can be listed for free, though Amazon will only allow you to list at US$0.99 and may or may not choose to price match to free. D2D can't accept any ebook prices from US$0.01 to US$0.98 due to store restrictions.
For print pricing, you will want to visit our Print on Demand Calculator page to determine the base cost of printing. You will not be allowed to list print books for free as there is a minimum cost to printing.
With D2D Print, Draft2Digital is launching a Print Book Cover Creator. This free tool will allow you to automatically convert your Ebook Cover into a print-ready wraparound cover for your print book. You will be able to use the Cover Creator to preview, edit the back cover or spine text, and upload an author photo or publisher icon before your book goes live.
Print Change Tokens are a credit that will allow you to make changes and updates to your book in a way that minimizes costs and overhead for both you and for Draft2Digital. There will be a monetary cost for each Print Change Token, but Draft2Digital will give you a free token 90 days following the publication of your book. We will issue another free token for each book 90 days following any updates or changes you make.
You may disable free ISBNs provided by Draft2Digital, but this will block your book from distribution to some stores unless you provide your own ISBNs. If you have your own ISBNs, just add them on the book's Details page and we'll use those. If you don't want any free ISBNs applied to your books, go to Account > Manage Advanced User Options and check the box labeled Disable Draft2Digital-provided ISBNs.
For print, Draft2Digital will automatically generate a wraparound cover based on your ebook art (AKA front cover art) and we provide some basic customization options like spine text and back cover text editing. If you prefer to have a professional make your print cover, download the print cover template file Draft2Digital provides for a template that is custom-sized to fit your interior book file and paper choices. Once you've got your print cover back from your professional, you can upload your print wraparound book cover and Draft2Digital will place your barcode for you.
Most other ebook conversion and distribution services will limit the ways you can use the books they make for you. At Draft2Digital, we're proud of our products and confident in our service. Feel free to download your proof copy files and use them however you want.
It will depend on the device itself, as well as Digital Rights Management issues, which is a way for publishers to control who can read purchased eBooks, and to restrict what can be done with them. At the moment, downloaded EBL ebooks can be transferred to any portable device that supports Adobe Digital Editions (ADE). There's a list of these compatible devices on the ADE website. Portable devices with browser support (such as the iPhone/iPad) can also access EBL and Read Online via the web.
eBooks are subject to access period restrictions, just like a physical library book. Files are available to read for a set period and will then be erased. You can re-download the text if you still need it. Any notes or highlights you have made in your personal account should still be there. 2b1af7f3a8
