World Book Day 2020 is upon us, and to celebrate Amazon is currently offering nine free books on the Kindle Store.

Amazon gives away free books each year in recognition of World Book Day, and this year it's running a campaign called 'Read The World'. This year's free books feature authors from all around the world and celebrate the rich breadth of diversity to be found on the Kindle Store - both in genres and origin.

With such a diverse roster of free books on offer, we're sure there's something for everyone here, and just in time to beat the lockdown boredom as well.

There's just under two days left to claim your free books, so head on over to the Kindle Store right now if you want to capitalize on this great giveaway and discover some great new literary flavors this week.
