Worth repeating: BookBub makes my Kindle even better

2 November 2017 | Comments [0] »

I discovered Bookbub, the site that notifies me of bargains on digital books, four years ago. I blogged about it then and I want to post it again because I love it even more now than I did then. I have many books on my Kindle and between Bookbub and my library, I’ve paid very little for books in the almost five years I’ve had my Kindle. When my list of bargain books come in every day from Bookbub, I almost always ignore the ones that aren’t free, to narrow down the choices. I keep track of my Kindle library in Evernote and between Bookbub and my Evernote list, I feel such abundance (and no overwhelm) when it comes to reading material. If you like to read books on an e-reader, I encourage you to check out Bookbub!

Using Evernote to organize my Kindle library

28 July 2017 | Comments [0] »

Because it’s so easy to download free Kindle books, thanks to Bookbub and my library, I have hundreds of books on my Kindle.

The other is to put books into collections. Neither is sufficient, in my opinion.

At the end of 2012, I bought myself a little gift: A Kindle Paperwhite e-reader. After less than two weeks with it, I was in love and wrote a blog post about why I love my Kindle Paperwhite.

There's no such thing as a free book

I make no secret of the fact that I love my Kindle Paperwhite. It makes books so portable that I’m reading more than ever. (I’m keeping a running list and since I bought my Kindle in on December 31, 2012, I’ve read 25 books.)

BookBub: It makes my Kindle even better

5 July 2013 | Comments [1] »

When I bought my Kindle Paperwhite e-reader in December, I worried that I’d be spending all kinds of money on books. Back when I was reading books printed on paper, I’d just borrow them from my library. While my library does offer Kindle books, the selection is somewhat limited.

Kindle + Audible = Synching bliss

17 May 2013 | Comments [0] »

Not to be too much of an Amazon fangirl, but I just have to report how happy their Whispersync for Voice technology is making me. For some books, it’s possible to purchase a Kindle book and also purchase (at a discounted price) the Audible audio version of the book.

My new love: the Kindle Paperwhite

10 January 2013 | Comments [6] »

I read a lot. I probably read several books a month, most of them fiction, but some non-fiction. I almost always get my books from the St. Louis Public Library, so I don’t have a lot of book clutter, which is nice.
