Kindle

No I didn’t get one, although I kinda wish I could…  I did “discover” (as in another blog mentioned it) something that makes me just as happy a few weeks or so ago though.

There’s a free downloadable app for computers, phone’s, etc. Even better… well maybe not better since it’d be pointless without that lol.. there are also free ebooks you can read on it.

I prob should look more in the classics section of that lol, but I’ve been stuck in the promotional offer one since I found this.  Has been nice getting to read a little more again, but downside is I’ve found yet another series or two that I want to finish and only the first books of each are free. 😀  Oh well… They’ll go on my list, is not like I don’t have a million others I’m waiting on reading already!

Anyways, thought I’d pass this along for anyone who didn’t already know.

    I got a kindle a few weeks ago, and the free books totally make it worthwhile! I have over 40 books and 3 games on there, and I think I paid for around 4 of them–none over $10, and one was only $1. It’s a great investment! One of my daily internet stops is http://www.dealnews.com, and they often list free Kindle books on their site, so even if a book’s only free for a day or two, usually I see it and download it if I think I may want to read it. If I don’t like it, no biggie–just delete it; it was free anyway. Love it!

      🙂 I’m gonna have to check out that site! I just realized the pc version doesn’t allow games… sad. Oh well… and that last bit describes how I feel perfectly. Unless its a series I’ve already started I feel bad about picking up something new right now… and even those series I do to a point.

    I got my wife a Nook for Christmas- she loves the portability and convenience of an e-reader. I myself can’t get used to it. I’m a traditionalist- gotta have my fingers on the spines of a real book. I know there are free books through BN.com as with Amazon. I don’t know if the selection varies between the two.

      I’m somewhere in the middle. I love real books. I know I’d miss that too… but… our bookshelves are beyond crowded. I feel horrible adding anymore to them lol. On the other hand, I like having the books there where we can glance at them and see at any given time. But then there’s the crunchy part of me that sees the e-readers being a little more (lot more) eco friendly. Sigh…

      I was going to comment on the Nook bit, but Steph beat me to it… I just tried it out last night & will finish this thought on her comment!

    The selection DOES vary b/w the Nook and the Kindle. And Nook has a free app too!

    My Nook was my favorite Christmas this year … Possibly since my camera! I love it. I will admit that I’ve read a bit of trash recently, but it was fun trash! If you get the Nook app as well, let me know. I’ll lend some books to you. 🙂

      I just saw that last night lol. Instead of commenting I went looking out of curiosity. Even found a book or two I wanted, so I downloaded the app & for some reason none of my library will transfer over from B&N. Not cool…

      As for reading trash… Hey I do it too. Baba teases me endlessly about it, but sometimes you just need to relax & read something a little more mindless!

        I’m not 100% sure what the problem would be, but I did realize the other day that if I want it from my B&N acct online that I have to log into the app first, then look at My Library, and then download. I tried to just download straight to my pc and then open it using the app and that wouldn’t work… You can also do your browsing through the app and try downloading that way.

        LOL … I’m totally into the mindless reading right now. Although, yesterday I read Water for Elephants and thought it was really good!
