This way, if you’re interested in a video, article, text, etc., and you’d like to read it later on your Kindle, you only have to store it using Pocket, and the cloud will synchronize with your account on your Kindle. It works like a charm.

Google Play Books

The best part of this tool is that it not only lets you read but also listen since it has thousands and thousands of completely free audiobooks. There are paid audiobooks too, of course, just like regular books, but the database that’s available at no cost is extensive, so you don’t have to worry one bit.

One thing to keep in mind is that Google is behind this app, constantly improving it. This is a seal of guarantee for finding all the latest books and many classics as well (free and in all possible languages).

Ebook Search

Flight search engines manage to get all the info online about airlines and put them on their platforms, right? In general, it works pretty well, and the idea is to simplify the user’s next trip by finding the most affordable flights. Well, Ebook Search is the same, but with ebooks.

This app, which is completely free, collects books from all over the Internet that are available without copyright. It’s a search engine, in other words, that so far has nearly 9 million books, a number that speaks for itself.


By far, this is the largest literary, social network in the world: Goodreads. Millions of users are registered on it, which means the book database is sick. If there’s a magazine or book published on this planet, it’s very likely on Goodreads.

Goodreads Access

Thanks to the open interaction among readers on the platform, this service is constantly being updated, with reviews from everybody, ratings, comments, etc.

Also, like all good social networks, you can see what your friends read, create reading groups or stay updated about certain publishing houses or authors. Add it to your Kindle ASAP.
