How to Buy Books on a Kindle E-Reader

Not only is reading book on a Kindle easy, buying them is as well. Kindle allows you to access their store straight from your device so you can shop whenever you want as long as you are connected to the Internet.

Step 1
From your Home screen press the Menu button. A list of options should pop up and you want to select “Shop Kindle Store.” If you have a Kindle Fire then, from your Home screen, you want to tap the “Books” button and then the “Store” button.

Step 2
You are now in the Kindle store where you can browse by genre. You can also search for something specific by typing it into the search bar at the top of the page. When you find what you are looking for select it to get more details.

Step 3
Once you have gone over the details of the book you should see a “Buy” option at the bottom of the page. Select if you want to purchase the book. A screen should pop up that says the book is being sent to your device via Whispernet. When it is done the book should show up on your Home screen.

Payment for books is done through your Amazon account – whatever card information you have linked to your account is what the book purchase will be billed to.

As long as your Kindle is hooked up to the Internet and linked with your Amazon account, you can buy books whenever you want. Just browse through the store until you find what you’re looking for and select the “Buy” option. The book will be immediately added to your library.
