THIS FAT OLD LADY HAS A DEAL FOR YOU, IF YOU LOVE TO READ

reading

Our house used to be buried in books. Like hoarders for books. It’s better now, although there are still a whole lot of books around. Many, though, have (hopefully) found homes at the library or through donations to Good Will, because now I mostly use my Kindle.

It pains me though when I see how costly a lot of e-books are.

You don’t have to pay for printing them – it’s a file.

I do not begrudge payment to the writer, and I understand there is some distribution costs, but still, I’d like to think e-books would be cheaper than most paperbacks.

So how do I afford to keep my Kindle loaded?

First there is Gutenberg.org where you can get all kinds of free e-books. Mostly in the public domain (so you get lots of classics).

Second, is BookBub.com – I urge you to give them a try.

You sign up, let them know what kind of device you are using for reading, and every day (yes, every fucking day), they will send you a list of e-books that range in price from $2.99 to FREE!!!

FREE, as you probably realize, is an excellent price. And many of the choices are $0.99. Which is pretty fucking good too.

So if you like books, but don’t want to haul them around – head over to BookBub.com and give it a try. What’s it going to hurt?

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do; and happy reading.
