I had a Kindle reader . I bought a Samsung Galaxy 2 . 10.1 .It has the Kindle app on it . So my Kindle account works with it . Got over 100 books on it . Mostly older free books . What i like is you can enlarge the writing to suit your eyes . I gave my Kindle to my Granddaughter to enjoy ...

I signed up for Bookbub, sends an email every day with free and low cost books, you choose the genre you like. Easier than going thru all the lists and finding some that aren't full books and the other tricky ones for prime members supposed to be free but involve some other actions. 

I have more books than I can possibly read and download about 12 more every week.

I also get lists from BookBub, Bookperk, Ereader News Today, BookGorilla, and One Hundred Free Books daily.  I now check with the library on any book I like to see if they have it before I buy it - otherwise...well you readers know what I mean!
