Amazon now also offers fiction, children's and young people's books as well as non-fiction and cookbooks free of charge - free of charge as Kindle eBooks. A Kindle reader is not absolutely necessary for reading; you can also read the digital books using the free Kindle app on your smartphone or computer. If you or your children don't feel like reading, Amazon offers its customers free films and series even without a Prime subscription. More about free streaming you read behind this link. First of all, this is about the eBooks;)

You shouldn't expect the biggest bestsellers and most respected authors during the campaign. But the books made free of charge ensure that you can fill an hour or two in the corona isolation. In addition to "Days of Hope" by Catherine Ryan Hyde, "The Heart of the Seven Islands" by Tara Haigh and similar, there are also classics such as "The Mysterious Island" by Jules Verne or "Robinson Crusoe" by Daniel Dafoe.
For children there are, in addition to a few other books, “The little dragon coconut among the dinosaurs” by Ingo Siegner, “The Vampire Sisters” by Franziska Gehm and so on. Most of the non-fiction and cookery books come from Gräfe und Unzer Verlag (“GU” for short) and offer a lot of ideas, from tin recipes to activity tips and yoga for children. The entire free Kindle eBook range is available with this link.
The new offer from Amazon is only a small selection of what is actually available free of charge for the Kindle reader or the Kindle app. Classics in particular are often offered free of charge. Simply select the category “Kindle Shop” in the Amazon search and search for, for example, Jules Verne, Johann W. Goethe, Friedrich Schiller, Franz Kafka, Lewis Carroll, Edgar A. Poe - you will find dozens of free works and collections .
If you want to make isolation more beautiful with philosophy and / or theology, there are also several free Kindle offers here: Kant, Schopenhauer, Plato, the Bible, the Koran and much more are available to you. In addition, there are historical works - historical non-fiction books, histories and stories such as “Brehm's Animal Life”, “Roman History”, “Journey of Discovery to Tahiti and the South Seas 1772 - 1775”, and more.
