    With so many promotions and free eBook plus integrated Amazon store, it is very useful as secondary eBook reader.

    Let's face it if you have any device you should have this app! What's great is there are hundreds of free books. Now if you are a very strong critic you may want to stick with the paid books as the free ones can be lacking. But if you watch even some of your favorite authors may offer their books free sometimes. You can also get pretty much any book on kindle and for usually a very reasonable price.
