Free Children Books on Amazon.com

This may be of interest to you, if you're looking for free children books in English!

I've found out that on Amazon.com there are free electronic books for children each day. That is, some books that usually cost money are sometimes offered free, for a day or two. These books are in electronic format, to be read on Kindle -- Amazon's e-book reader.

HOWEVER, there is an alternative for those of use who do not have Kindle. You simply need to download the Kindle for PC free software and install it on your home computer and then you use this software for reading the books. (You will find out more information here).

So, after you download and install the Kindle for PC software, next you make an Amazon account (if you don't already have one) and then you look on this page:
http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=sr_nr_n_1?rh=n%3A133140011%2Cn%3A%21133141011%2Cn%3A154606011%2Cn%3A155009011%2Cn%3A681308011&bbn=155009011&sort=price&ie=UTF8&qid=1334135277&rnid=155009011
On this page the books are listed by price, the free ones on top, for the 4-8 age group.
Then you choose a book and with a simple click you have them. You do not need to enter your account information to get the free books.
The free books change on a daily basis, so it's a good idea to check the link above often.

Another place where you can get a more complete list of Amazon freebies is at Free Homeschool Deals. Follow their Facebook page to stay up-to-date!
Also on Facebook, keep an eye on Kotc Kids (they list the kids free books on Amazon) and KotC (for grown-ups books).

E o informatie de folos, pentru cei care cauta carti gratuite in engleza pentru copii!
Am descoperit recent ca Amazon.com ofera zilnic cateva carticele electronice gratuite pentru copii. Adica, din pretul initial, sunt reduse la 0, pentru maxim 1-2 zile. Aceste carti sunt in format electronic, si in general sunt destinate a fi citite pe Kindle, tableta e-book reader de la Amazon.
DAR, ei ofera si alternative pentru cei care nu au aceasta tableta. Anume, prin descarcarea gratuita a software-ului Kindle for PC, si instalarea lui pe calculatorul de acasa, poti foarte bine descarca aceste carticele si sa le vezi pe calculatorul tau de acasa. (Alte informatii despre cum se poate instala aplicatia free Kindle, aici.)
 
Deci, dupa ce iti instalezi Kindle pe calculator, iti faci un cont pe Amazon (daca nu ai deja), si te uiti pe pagina:
http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=sr_nr_n_1?rh=n%3A133140011%2Cn%3A%21133141011%2Cn%3A154606011%2Cn%3A155009011%2Cn%3A681308011&bbn=155009011&sort=price&ie=UTF8&qid=1334135277&rnid=155009011

Aici iti afiseaza cartile in ordine a pretului, pentru varsta de 4-8 ani.
Procedeul de cumparare e simplu, cu un click. Nu e nevoie de date de card, de nimic.
Cartile free se schimba des, deci ideal trebui verificat acest link zilnic.
Eu am luat multe carti deja, f frumoase, de o luna de cand urmaresc aceste oferte.

Veti gasi lista completa de carti gratuite pe Amazon la Free Homeschool Deals. E o idee buna sa urmariti pagina lor de Facebook!
Tot pe Facebook, e de urmarit Kotc Kids (ei listeaza cartile gratuite pentru copii de pe Amazon) si KotC (cartile gratuite pt adulti). Spor la citit!

  2. imi cere adresa dupa ce dau "buy with one click", s-a schimbat ceva intre timp?

  3. Nu, nu s-a schimbat nimic.
    1. Ti-ai facut cont, da?
    2. Ti-ai instalat Kindle pt PC, da?

    Unele carti (mai rar) sunt numai in format Kindle, pentru tableta Kindle, care nu merg pt PC.
    Da-mi linkul cu cartea care incerci sa o iei, o sa incerc si eu.
    Incearca si alte carti free, vezi daca acelea le poti lua.

  4. Da si da :)
    Am incercat mai multe, imi apare un formular de fiecare data.

    In dreapta vad Buy now with 1 click (Deliver to Daiana's kindle on PC), dau click si se deschide un formular, pentru adresa.

  5. S-a rezolvat de la sine problema click-ului buclucas, acum pot downloada si eu :) Am deja 50 de carti, dintr-un foc :)
    Azi am gasit asta:

    1. Mersi!:) Am luat-o si eu acum, nu o vazusem.

  6. Acum cercetez daca se pot face schimburi de carti :D
    Tot ce descarci din Archive (in aplicatie) se duce aici:
    C:\Users\"USER"\Documents\My Kindle Content (asta e locatia pentru Windows 7)
    Oare daca adaugi fisiere manual in locatia asta, o sa le incarce si Kindle for PC? :)

    Ma gindesc ca daca in mod normal cumperi cartea respectiva, trebuie sa o poti re-incarca, doar nu platesti fiecare descarcare /silly face/ :D

    1. Incearca ... eu le descarc pe ipad, mi se duc direct acolo, dar, in mod normal, daca pui, de ex, un pdf in acea locatie, ar trebui sa iti apara si pe Kindle for PC.

      In alta ordine de idei, astia anunta cam in fiecare zi lista de carti free pe amazon, daca vrei sa te abonezi. http://www.freehomeschooldeals.com/free-kindle-books-homemade-coffee-creamer-recipes-hidden-pictures-book-shapes-numbers-more/

  7. Niiiiice! :) Mersi si eu, m-am abonat.
    La mine nu sint pdf-uri, mi-ar fi placut sa fie, ca le poti deschide si fara aplicatie :(
    Am pus un pdf, insa nu l-a incarcat, cred ca nu accepta decit anumite extensii.
    Poate incercam intr-o zi sa vedem daca se transfera :D

  8. I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could
    connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for
    only having one or two pictures. Maybe you could space
    it out better?
