Okay, so I’ve mentioned using the digital library for e-books and audiobooks. But I completely let it slip my memory that I actually have another way of accessing e-books. And these are actually ones that you can have. For free. Or very cheap. My brother actually passed me one of his older e-readers in the past and that’s when I started hunting for cheap e-books to read. Now most tablets are great for reading on the go as well.
I’m currently subscribed to Book Bub! I get an e-mail each day that gives me a list of free or low cost e-books that are on sale. There’s actually so many free ones that I can’t even keep up with which ones I have and which ones I don’t have. They aren’t all the most amazing books, but you can definitely stock up on some decent ones. Also, there might just be something satisfying about browsing through the e-book lists and purchasing them.
Shopping gratification without the cost.
It’s really easy to navigate and find the kinds of books you want.
If it’s available, you’ll be able to find it with links to Amazon, Barnes &Noble, Apple Books, Google, and Kobo! I just started picking up kindle books on Amazon. Normally most of my kindle books are for Barnes & Noble. Maybe I’m just paranoid and like to stock up on all the different ways of having it. You never know when one or the other might be unavailable.
I’m still not great at managing my books on Amazon yet, so I wasn’t able to take a screenshot of that. But it’s very satisfying to have all these books at my fingertips. I’m still old fashioned and prefer the actual books in my hands though. The way they smell. The feel of having a book in your hands. Actually being able to look between a few books at one time. It’s not practical. I’ll admit. But it really just makes me happy.
There’s great arguments for both sides.
But if you really want/need some e-books I highly recommend Book Bub! Thanks for stopping in today, guys.
