Kindle Fire $129 On Cyber Monday 2012 & Free E-Books

So, if you decide to take the CyberMonday 2012 deal and buy a Kindle Fire for $129 (great gift for parents of grownups), the next question as the wrapping paper is torn away on Christmas to expose that shiny new Kindle Fire or Kindle Fire HD to come to mind while you charge the battery is, "Where do I find free Kindle Fire books?"  The answer is quite simple.  Check out your library!

The Brevard County Library System (includes the Cocoa Beach Public Library) announced last year that it checked out its 10,000 eBook today after offering eBooks for less than a month. (If mom lives out of Brevard County, check to see if her library system has free e-books at the overdrive link below).

The eBook collection is now compatible with the world’s bestselling eBook reader, the Amazon Kindle Fire or Amazon Kindle Fire HD.

Patrons can now download popular and classic eBooks to a Kindle Fire device or any mobile device running the free Kindle Fire app, such as iPhone, iPad, Android, and more. To get started, visit

Brevard County Libraries also offer eBooks and audiobooks for use on a PC or Mac computer and popular mobile devices such as a Smartphone, MP3 player, and eBook reader like the Barnes & Noble Nook and Sony Reader.

Kindle Fire users can browse the Brevard County Library System's collection of bestselling and classic eBooks from a PC or Mac computer, check out titles using a library card, and select “Get for Kindle” to deliver eBooks to their Kindle Fire device or any device running the free Kindle app, including Kindle Fire HD.

Users who enjoy eBooks on Kindle Fire will benefit from Amazon’s Whispersync technology that synchronizes notes, highlights and last page read between their Kindle Fire and free Kindle apps.
Brevard County Libraries partners with OverDrive, Inc. (, a global leader in eBook distribution for libraries and schools, to offer this service.

In addition to public libraries, Amazon announced last year that Kindle Owners’ Lending Library Offers Readers Over 100,000 Books to Borrow For Free.
