One of the things that many people that buy the Kindle Fire tablet will be doing with the device is purchasing books on it. Amazon has one of the largest digital libraries out there. The way the Amazon digital library works reminds me very much of the way buying books on my iPad works. The Amazon Kindle Fire library is very easy to navigate and find books.
If you know the title of the book, you can search by title. If you know the author, you can search by author as well. If you are simply looking for something new and interesting to read there are several ways to find a good book to curl up with. The new and noteworthy books run across the top of the store page that you find inside the library section of the home page on the Kindle Fire.
You can scroll through those by running your finger left or right across that section. Tapping an individual book cover will open the book up for you to read more about and for you to purchase. Under that section, you will find listings for the top 100 paid books with the same tap to buy and for more details options. There are also listings for kid's books and for the top 100 free books as well. The other category on the main page is for Kindle Singles along with a section for new and noteworthy.
On the right side of the page are links to other search methods including simply browsing all the books available. A link is there for Kindle Newsstand as well, which is where you buy magazines and other periodicals. The Editor's picks is a selection of books compiled by Amazon. If you are an Amazon Prime member, you can check out the Kindle Owners lending library free books. There is also a link to the New York Times Best Sellers, children's picture books, and comic books as well. On any individual book listing, you only need to touch the cover image and read more or purchase from there.
You have to be connected to a WiFi network to purchase the books and you must have a credit card associated with your Amazon account. If you don’t have card with your account you will need to go ad one at Amazon.com. Happy reading!
