free kindle booksDid you know that there are a number of free Kindle books available in the mental health field as well as in other areas such as books for kids, health, cooking games and fiction? You can also read Kindle books on your PC, Iphone, Ipad or other gadgets. A few titles I saw on Amazon that were free Kindle books over the week were on making the most of your therapy and one on cognitive behavioral therapy. Please read this free guide on how to find free Kindle books as well as lots of ebooks that are no cost that can be read on the pc- How To Find Free Ebooks.

You may want to get a hard copy of a book, but it makes sense to first see if there is a free version that is digital. Plus, the digital version is great to read while waiting for someone, enjoying the beach, sitting in an airport or eating alone in a restaurant. I also recommend this to clients as a way to gain ways to reduce stress and help to get rid of feelings of agitation. There are lots of classics that are available because they are in the public domain. These include wonderful philosophical works by Plato, Kant and Lao Tzu. Literature classics can be very illuminating on topics such as love, old age, revenge and the search for wisdom. Books by Tolstoy and Dostoyevsky have depth, universal appeal and speak to our deepest concerns.

I mention this in the Guide to Free Ebooks, but there are discussion threads in the forum at Amazon where people post their books that are available for free. This is a way to find authors that are giving out their books for free. Often it may just be for a day or a week and are time limited offers so that the authors can get more exposure as well as possible reviews listed. Don’t forget that there is also Amazon Prime which is a membership there that allows you to borrow a book a month for free.

In addition, have you thought of writing your own book that can be sold via Amazon? It is free to sign up and it is not hard to format a book for sale.

You can write on something such as a hobby or strong interest that you’ve been involved in for years. What do you know that you can teach to others? Or if you are a fiction lover, writing short stories or a novel is another way to be creative.
