I love having the Kindle app on my Android phone, as I can read anytime, anywhere (if the battery last!) But to save battery power, I always turn the screen brightness down – it is much easier on the eyes as well! 😉

So, for my not so technical readers, I will explain how to set up the Kindle app on your Android phone and get reading!

1. Download and Install

You will land on a Welcome to Kindle greeting page.

It will show you various categories and some book covers underneath.

You can tap on any category to explore.

Tapping on any book that interests you, will take you to the Amazon store where you can purchase the book!

But wait! Before you go on a book spending spree, have a look at my next post Read on Kindle 2: How to get free (or cheap) books for your Kindle! that will show you how to get books on Amazon for free (or ridiculously cheap!) 👍
