    I've got Kindle on my Inc. There are quite a few free books available.
    I use it every day.
    I just did a search on the market for Kindle in various spellings and variations and the Kindle app came up first with every search.

    When I spelled it wrong it asked "did you mean Kindle".
    I think the magnifying glass in the upper right corner of the market must be broken on the OPs phone.I know search was stupid last night. I searched for "printshare" and got calendar apps, clock widgets, you name it but anything print or share related.

    I am assuming by the avatar you have, that you are using either a Droid 2 or a Droid 2 Global. If so, go to your home screen, press the App Drawer icon on screen(circle O with a ^ inside it)...scroll down, apps are loaded alphabetically, until you come to the Amazon Kindle app icon...it looks like the below posted picture...

    If by chance you do not have this app installed, click the following link--->Amazon Kindle E-Book Reader for Android Devices

    kcav, a few things;

    What device are you using? Do you have a full Android Market app on your device? If so do a search for amazon. It was the fourth listing in my search.

    The application is free and there is plenty of content available for free. You can also side-load (load outside the normal channels) content from various other sources. For example;

    Project Gutenberg - free ebooks online download for iPad, Kindle, Nook, Android, iPhone, iPod Touch, Sony Reader

    Thousands of royalty-free books. :)

    One other thing, to get to the Market, it should be an app already installed on your phone, normally looks like a white/green shopping bag. If its not on the homescreen, you'll probably have it in the app drawer, which is the icon that looks like a bunch of squares.

    I'll nth the comments from everyone else, the Kindle app allows you to view books designed for the Kindle device, without needing one (just an Amazon.com account). There are free books, there are regular books. And just like with a regular Kindle, if you buy a book before it is available, it will be available on release day.

    Along this line, if you want to go maybe the Barnes and Noble route, you can get the Nook app for the phone. Borders' Kobo device also has a corresponding app on our phones as well. Neither need the actual hardware device to work.
