So, any recommendations for navigating the Kindle Store's inexpensive offerings?
I get my ebooks through a number of routes. I keep an eye on the daily & monthly Amazon ebook deals, as well as some other places that list ebook sales of genres that I like. I keep a wishlist of ebooks I'm interested in reading on Amazon and periodically check it to see what is on sale. My number one source of ebooks is my library's ebook collection.
As mentioned, you can get out of copyright books from Amazon. You can also get them from Mobileread.com. Of course the source is Gutenberg, which you can access, but the books are individually proofread, which is nice. I believe out of copyright is approximately anything earlier than 1924. You can see the MobileRead books from your computer, which is helpful, but they also have a kindle version of a catalog which is updated every week. Once you download the first one (via the website from your kindle) you can easily upgrade the catalog by pressing the link on the first page. Then you can download the books you want directly through the catalog without any transfer issues.
Another source is manybooks.net. They have some that mobileread sometimes doesn't have but I haven't been there in a while.
Also, if you have access to a digital library, that is a good way to read for free. Of course the popular books are slow to get and you have a time limit, but still useful. You can always purchase them from Amazon if you really like them.
I look at it this way: if I read a couple of good books from Mobileread or the digital library, I can buy an expensive book from Amazon. ;-)
ETA: >2 lesmel: Thank you for the link! It is addictive!
