How do I read books on Goodreads?

We are primarily a book review and recommendations site. However, many books on the site do have samples available in our Preview feature. The Preview button will show up on any book that has a Kindle edition. Simply click the button to read a sample of the book.

We also have a small selection of readable ebooks. If a book is readable, you'll see a green "read ebook" button below the cover image. Just click on that to start reading!

You can find a list of all the free readable ebooks here.
