I have received an offer for some "free" E-Books (I paid for an online course several months ago).

The instructor's announcement included links to the Free books on Amazon (currently priced at zero).

The Amazon pages all say "Kindle" on them.

I don't know the first thing about Kindle. From Day One, I had these inexplicable feelings of aversion to the whole concept.

So anyway, these "free" books were enough to convince me to try it, once, and I looked online for a free Kindle E-Book reader for my PC.

The list below contains links to the ones I've found so far, and I welcome truthful feedback from anyone who has actually used any one of these (and thank you for your donated brain-trons).

As is probably evident, I hardly have the first idea about anything related to Kindle.

In fact, I can't even tell if I'm looking at different software packages, or just the same one on different sites.

At any rate, thanks for helping a clueless guy.

SOFTONIC
(I think this is an ad to generate revenue with a link back to Amazon software)

CNET
(Is this the same Amazon package again ?)

AMAZON
(Looks like an annoyance morass; please correct me)
https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=201245960

WINDOWS 7 DOWNLOAD
(Most appear to be pay-for-it, but there are a couple of interesting looking free packs)

QP DOWNLOAD
(Is this yet another copy of the same Amazon Package again ?)
