To get your free Kindle books, all you need is an Amazon Kindle (or any other reading device or smartphone, like a tablet, iPhone, or Nook). From there, you just have to know how to navigate the Romance Bookworms website. That part can feel a little overwhelming once all the books are released, but I’ve shared my best tips below.

Stuff Your Kindle Day is a semi-annual 24-hour event with free romance books via the Kindle app.

Stuff Your Kindle Day was launched in 2014 by Romance Bookworms. We typically see four events throughout the year — one in each season. The original event is for romance books, but other genres have started their own Stuff Your Kindle events with free eBooks.

For example, Dark Mode Books is rumored to have a Stuff Your Kindle event coming up on July 20, 2024.

KCL predicts the next Stuff Your Kindle Day will be on July 20, 2024.

Stuff-Your-Kindle-Day

Based on past Stuff Your Kindle days, we think you can expect the next one to fall on or around Tuesday, July 20, 2024.

Romance Bookworms still hasn’t officially announced the next date for Stuff Your Kindle Day. In fact, there's a notice on the site that says: "The dates for 2024 HAVE NOT been announced. When Stuff Your Kindle Day will take place in 2024 is a heavily guarded secret. Join our free reader alert email service to be the first to know what we are planning for 2024."

How we make our prediction.

Since this is a heavily guarded secret, we cannot confirm the next day. But we can make a pretty good guess.

Here were the most recent dates of Stuff Your Kindle Day dates:

  • Tuesday, April 23, 2024

  • Wednesday, Dec. 27, 2023

  • Wednesday, Sept. 20, 2023

  • Friday, June 30, 2023

  • Friday, March 31, 2023

Since the first Stuff Your Kindle day in 2023 fell on March 31, with the second one three months later on June 30 — we predict that the second event of 2024 will fall around three months after the April 23, 2024 date. Watch for Stuff Your Kindle Day around Tuesday, July 20, 2024.

Is there a Stuff Your Kindle Day for different genres?

Luckily, there are a ton of book blasts for different genres that happen multiple times a year. If you're waiting for the next Stuff Your Kindle Day, consider checking out these e-Book giveaways that will be running in the meantime.

How To Get Free eBooks Ahead of Stuff Your Kindle Day

Luckily, Stuff Your Kindle Day isn't the only way to get free Kindle books. In fact, you can get free books any time of year, like through certain nonprofit programs (and even your local library).

While we wait for Stuff Your Kindle Day to arrive, these are some of the best ways to get free books for all ages:

Claim free eBooks with Prime Reading.

One of my favorite ways to get free books is through Prime Reading, which comes free with your Amazon Prime membership. Prime Reading lets you access free eBooks from authors like Colleen Hoover, plus a selection of magazines and audio books.

You can borrow up to 10 titles at a time. But if you have Kindle Unlimited, you can borrow up to 20 titles.

Borrow Kindle books for free with your library card.

You probably thought your library card was useless at this point in time. But you can actually use it to access tons of free eBooks through various apps like Libby and cloudLibrary.

Not every library system uses these apps, but it works in most major cities.

Download free eBooks from Gizmo's Best.

Gizmo's Best has more than 700 websites listed where you can download free books. Each website has a different selection of books available, from fiction and illustrated books to biographies and math books.

Get free eBooks for kids through the Amazing Books for Children program.

The CDC has a program called Amazing Books for Children, which offers free books and downloads for infants through elementary school ages. You can get free shipping on hard copies of the books, and the materials are also available for download.

Stuff Your Kindle Day FAQs

How do I find free eBooks for Stuff Your Kindle Day?

I personally prefer to just browse the store, rather than plan out my downloads ahead of time. All you have to do is go to your eReader kiosk at your bookstore and sort the options from low to high. The first results are going to be all the free ones. (Just double-check that the price is for sure $0.00 before you buy since price fluctuations can happen quickly). You can use the store’s built-in sorting features to refine by genre, age group, and rating.

Keep in mind that none of these search features or lists include trigger warnings or content warnings. Always look that up before you start reading if you’re sensitive to certain topics. I like to use BookTriggerWarnings.com and use CTRL + F to search for book titles I’m interested in.

Is Stuff Your Kindle Day the same as Kindle Unlimited?

Nope! A common misconception is that the event is just Kindle Unlimited (KU), but bigger. However, there are a few key differences between the two. Kindle Unlimited is a subscription so you’re still paying for the book. It’s also just borrowing a book. If you end your KU subscription, you’ll lose all the books you downloaded on KU. And some KU downloads have to be returned within a certain amount of time.

With Stuff Your Kindle Day, you get to keep every book you download forever. There are no returns necessary or subscription fees involved. And unlike KU, you don’t need a Kindle to get in on the action. The event is open to readers using a wide variety of devices.

Do you have to be an Amazon Prime member?

Nope, you don't need a Prime membership, or even a Kindle, to get the free eBooks from Stuff Your Kindle Day.

Is the event only for romance books?

Since the event is hosted by Romance Bookworms, it does tend to focus on romance titles. But, that doesn't mean it's the only genre available.

There are plenty of genres represented in the event including fantasy, science fiction, YA, mystery, thriller, and more. Just don’t be surprised if there’s still a clear romance subplot.

Can I get free eBooks for kids?

Yes and no. Stuff Your Kindle Day includes YA books, but not middle grade or picture books.

My advice? If you're hoping to pick up some free eBooks for the teens in your life, exercise caution. While there are plenty of wholesome reads, the event also features some spicy stories and erotica. Be sure to check content warnings before downloading something for younger readers.

Will I find big-name authors on Stuff Your Kindle Day?

Stuff Your Kindle Day is an author-led event where a group of indie authors get together and work with various retailers to offer their books for free.

And because this is more indie-focused, you probably won’t find the biggest and most popular titles on BookTok. Rather, you’ll find books by smaller publishing houses and independent authors like Shea MacLeod or Molly Maple.

Do you need a Kindle to participate?

Nope, you can download eBooks to almost any device on Stuff Your Kindle Day. The event caters to anyone with an iPhone, tablet, Nook, Kobo, or android.
