Got a Kindle for Christmas? Wondering what to do with it now you’ve read the first couple of chapters of Great Expectations and then swiftly moved on to some Sherlock Holmes? You can now subscribe to Free Movement on your Kindle: while away your commute and keep yourself bang up to date with the latest immigration and asylum law developments! Super.

More seriously, I’ve decided to do a little fundraising for the blog, with any excess being donated to BAILII, who make the blog possible. Two Kindle ebooks have been created which include all the legal material posted on Free Movement in 2010 and 2011 respectively. These can be downloaded here:

They are priced at £5.14 each (don’t ask). If the blog’s limited costs are recouped then any excess funds raised will be donated to BAILII. BAILII recently launched a fundraising drive because a large funder pulled out, and without BAILII this and other legal blogs would be all but impossible.

If you find this blog and BAILII useful then please consider showing your support by buying one or both of the ebooks.

While I’m on the subject, the HJT Training immigration manual is also now available on Kindle.

  1. Sorry to be really thick and generally luddite…

    Can they be downloaded outside the UK too with payment by online banking and no account setup/account keeping fees or extra fees for “transport and handling” since there would be no transport and handling.

    Very important for us technical-idiots, how does one read a “kindle” document on a normal PC? Does it open like a PDF or Word document so that it can easily be navigated by page number/word search?

    I notice it is necessary to download Amazon-specific software to view it, is it certified safe/spyware/adware free?

    Only asking because I’m interested in the purchase due to the good cause but may not be the only one who has never used “kindle” and can only gather what wikipedia says.

    1. Hum, all good questions. I’ll tell you what I know or understand. Amazon are very international and you can buy the FM ebooks at Amazon.com or in several other countries. A Kindle ebook can be read on any device that runs Kindle software, which includes PCs, Macs and iDevices including iPads. Kindle software is free and can be downloaded from Amazon directly, but you can as an alternative use open source ebook readers, such as Calibre.

      Hope that answers your questions.

    2. You won’t have any adware or similar issues with the Kindle for PC software, don’t be put off giving it a go.

  2. I tried subscribing to my own blog on my Kindle eInk thing and also got a sample chapter from one of the compilations and the links do work as long as you are hooked up to wifi. However, neither the blog subscription nor the compilation ebook appear on my Kindle apps on my Apple iDevices.
