Quick How-to: download a free Kindle app

Hi, everyone,

I’m so glad to hear that my little post on using an image widget to link to your Amazon book has helped so many people! I thought I would share with you how I’ve used the exact same process to make a link to the Kindle download page. Several people have asked me for a print copy of Shizzle, Inc because they don’t have a Kindle. I’m about to embark on a process of publishing a paperback, but you may not be aware that you no longer have to buy a Kindle. You can download a free Kindle app Β for your smartphone or tablet.

I have put a link to the above Kindle download page into my sidebar as well, right below the link to Shizzle, Inc on Amazon.

Hope this helps too!

  1. I have been using the app on my laptop for a few months and it works fine. Not a Kindle but easy enough to read any books that I download from Kindle.

    Hey random question…but did you have to use two different ISBN’s for the different book types..eg. Amazon eBook, the kindle version, and then the paperback?
    I’m researching on buying some ISBN’s and am currently designing a cover (even though I’m barely half way through my book lol). I;ve finished a book before but I’m not overly satisfied with it just yet πŸ™‚

    • Hi, Aneta – yes, you need a separate one for eBook and for a print version. I have not done the print version yet, but that’s why I bought a block of 10.

      If you feel like designing a cover, then do that – then pin it over your desk. Who knows, maybe looking at it every day will give you the oomph needed to finish.

        Thats exactly what I was thinking!! I had a bit of writers block so I started reading more and then this week I’ve just been on a roll but the downside is I haven’t read at all the past week and a half πŸ™‚

  3. I read a lot on my Kindle app, but the second part never occurred to me- I should provide a link so that potential readers who don’t currently have one can download it, by my book, and think I’m a really nice guy for making it easy for them to do so. That’s borderline genius.
