Pass this on to your friends

Those of us who fell in love with the Kindle long ago often forget that there are a whole lot of people out there who have not even heard about it yet.  And there are many more who have heard of the Kindle but aren't quite sure what it is or what it can and can not do.

As any Kindle evangelist has probably discovered already, one of the most common misconceptions about Kindle is that you must buy all of your books from Amazon.  With all of the free books available (legally) for the Kindle, one could read a lifetime and never purchase a single book from Amazon.com. 

Etan Horowitz from The Orlando Sentinal has published a nifty, concise guide to finding those free books and getting them on your Kindle.  Yeah, you already know this stuff, but it's a great page to send to those new Kindle owners in your life or anyone thinking of becoming one. 

Horowitz doesn't list all the sources for Kindle freebies, but his article is a nice starting point.
