How do I access my Kindle eBook?

Once you have bought a Kindle book on Amazon, it is added to your Kindle Library. Now you need a way to read it. You have two main choices:

  1. Use a free reading app on your tablet, phone, or computer
  2. Use a dedicated Kindle reading device

One great thing about eBooks is that you can start reading your book one way and then continue reading it on another device or app. Your library stays “in the cloud” but you can access it from any compatible reader.

Free Reading Apps

You already have the necessary equipment to read a Kindle book – a computer with an Internet connection! You may also have a mobile device, and chances are good that there’s a compatible and free Kindle app you can download and use to access your Kindle books. Here are some links to help you find the app that fits your needs:

  1. Cloud Reader – all you need is a web browser
  2. Mobile Devices:
  3. Personal Computer:
