The Internet has made it easy to buy books, but now buying eBooks online is simple as well! There are many benefits to buying eBooks:

  • You can fit several different books on one device.
  • Devices are lighter and easier to carry around with you than books.
  • eBooks are usually a little cheaper than books.

Why not give eBook reading a try?

How to Buy eBooks on Amazon

  1. Go to the web

    Open your Internet Browser (Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer, etc.) from your desktop or start menu. An Nguyen recommends Google Chrome, but any will do the trick.

    1. Visit Amazon

      Type Amazon.com in your search bar.

      1. Sign up for an account

        Sign in or sign up for an account by clicking the link at the top of the page. To sign up for an account, all you need is an email address and a password.

        1. Shop for eBooks

          In the left-hand column, you can get to eBooks by clicking either on the tab that says “Kindle” or “Books” and then clicking the link “Kindle Books”.

          1. Search for the eBook you want

            Browse the categories in the left-hand column to find the eBook you want. Click on the title of the eBook.

            1. Buy your eBook

              On the page for your book, in the right-hand column, use the scroll-down box to click on the device you’d like your eBook delivered to (a Kindle, a Nook, etc.). Then click “Buy”. Easy, right?
