How to Buy Books on Kindle

There was a time when your place might have been packed with bookshelves filled with books, some read, some planning to read. Now, a small Kindle can clear everything out, giving you a number of books right on your device. Now you do not have to carry a number of books with you.

But, before reading a book on your Kindle, you have to get it first. No matter what your Kindle version is, getting a book is very easy. Let’s check how to buy books on Kindle:

How to Buy Books on Kindle

To buy a book on your Kindle, you have to link your device to your Amazon account(It is very easy to create an account on Amazon). Your device is configured already. If not, follow the on-screen steps. Connect to Wi-Fi and enter your Amazon information, like email, password, username, and all, if asked. Once your Kindle is configured, you are ready to purchase.

Make sure that you are on the home page of your Kindle. If you are in a book, click the top, then tap the back button. On the main screen, click on the Home tab, which is present at the bottom.

Now, you can browse the Kindle Store. There are books recommended only for you and popular sellers too. Scroll through or click on the Search Kindle button at the top and type a book or author you like.

Once you find a book that you want to read, give it a tap. See the details of the book and read the views of customers.

Ready to buy? Click Buy for [the given price] or Buy now with 1 click. The book will download, and you can see it in your Kindle library, which is now ready to read with a click.

You might have more options. If you have Kindle Unlimited, you can read more than 3 million books at no extra cost. Also, you can add Audible audio for some more charges; just check out the Add Audible narration box.
