Free Kindle Format Bible

Sorry if you are getting this twice, but we appear to be having a replication issue…

Here is a post from my “Free Kindle Books Plus a Few Other Tips” blog.  Most of the blog’s readers read it on their kindles, and I get a lot of requests for sources of Bibles in the Kindle format.  If you’re interested in it, I highly recommend you grab it now as there is no telling how long it will remain for free (hours, days or months – I don’t know).  Have a great weekend!

The Holy Bible English Standard Version by Crossway Bibles is free today from the Amazon Kindle store, and has received an average user rating of 4 out of 5 stars based on 31 customer reviews.  You can pick up your free copy by clicking here.

Kindle Reset Instructions

We have a lot of people reading this blog on their Kindle’s, and I am going to set this message up to send out approximately once a month: if you’ve seen it before and know what I’m talking about, or if you’re just plain ‘ole tired of seeing it don’t worry – I’ll be back with a new post soon.

There seems to be a slight Kindle problem for a lot of folks – that is, what do you need to do if (a) this or any other blog all of a sudden stops updating each day on the Kindle, and (b) you can see it in the to be downloaded list of the “Manage Your Kindle” section of the Amazon website.

You will need to write this down, or try to memorize it, because if it happens to you I’m willing to bet you won’t remember unless you’ve reset your Kindle a few times!

If you would like to print this out, click here to read my post on my Free Kindle Books Plus a Few Other Tips  blog on how to capture screen shots on your Kindle.

If this happens to you, you will need to reboot your Kindle.  Here is how you do it:

  1. Click the “Home” button to get back to your home screen.
  2. Click the “Menu” button, and select “Settings.”
  3. You will see several options, but “reboot” is not one of those options.  Press the “Menu” button again.
  4. You will have several options, but choose and click the “Restart” button.

Once you do that, it will take about 1-2 minutes to reboot.  Make sure your wireless is on, and the Kindle will go look in the Amazon store to see what is pending to be downloaded and viola! You should be back in business.  If you ever need to restart your Kindle, I hope this helps!

Two Free Bibles in the Amazon Kindle Store Today

Most of the readers of this blog read it on their Kindles, so I thought it appropriate to pass along the below to each of you – Amazon has two Bibles in the Kindle format for free today.  If you are interested in either (or both) of them, I highly recommend you get them now as there is no guarantee they will be free for much longer; then again, they could be free for several more months – you just never know.

The first one is The Holy Bible: The HCSB Digital Text Edition published by B&H Publishing Group.  You can pick up your free copy by clicking here.

The second one is the CEB New Testament and you can pick up your free copy by clicking here.

Have a great weekend!
