National Reading Month

Falling on the same month as Dr. Seuss’s birthday, March is the perfect time to get back into reading, or just take advantage of some killer book deals. Grab your family and a favorite book and dive right in; even if it’s just for a few minutes. And if you haven’t picked up a book in a while, check out the following reading-related deals we've found. Some are even free; literally.


Amazon is one of the most well-known top online booksellers, and recently confirmed the upcoming launch of 100 physical bookstores in the U.S. If you have an Amazon account, download Amazon’s Kindle Reading app for free, which boasts thousands of free books. Check out classics like "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes," "Pride and Prejudice," and "Treasure Island," all for free.

Amazon also regularly updates their top 100 Kindle eBooks section for more free reads. And speaking of Kindles, owners of the popular e-reader who pay for a Prime membership have access to the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library, allowing you to borrow one Kindle book per month for free.

If physical books are more your style, perhaps it's time to swap out your old books for some new ones? Amazon’s Trade-In program allows you to trade-in your old books for Amazon Credit.

Free Books - Ultimate Classics Library

iPhone, Android and even Windows phone owners (yes, even you Windows), can download the free app: Free Books – Ultimate Classics Library.  This highly rated, 4 star app houses thousands of classics, with features like a dictionary, notes, highlights, bookmarks and more.


If you're a Barnes & Noble Nook lover, don't worry. We haven't left you out of the free book fun. You can take advantage of the thousands of free eBooks found here.
