Treats for You . . .

bookbub

I found out about this through a promotion on Pinterest and it might just be the best resource I have ever found (except maybe Pinterest itself).

I love to read, and one of my biggest challenges is to find books to enjoy. It’s hit-and-miss and time consuming.

I read everything but art books on my iPad in my Kindle App. I like art books in real life better because you can hug them (and the pictures stay where they are supposed to).

Another big challenge in my life has been what to do with the fiction and non-fiction after I’m done reading them. Kindle has solved that problem too. Now, my bookshelves contain only art books and a few classics.

So, that’s all great except for finding good stuff to read.

Enter BookBub

The idea is that you sign-up (email and password), and choose the categories of books you like.

Every day, you get an email list of 6-7 books in your categories, priced between 99ยข and $2.99, and one or two are always FREE. There is plot synopsis and a click through button for each book – Amazon or Barnes&Noble or iBooks – whoever is offering the deal (Amazon is ALWAYS offering).

Prices are only good for a short time, sometimes even just one day.

There are no hooks or gimmicks.

I have found SO MANY good books and new authors here. It has led me, of course, to buy other books by them, and that is why this works financially for BookBub, Amazon, etc.

Try it – you will love it:

  1. Right now my brain is hungry for creativity. I need to make the time.

  2. Wow, I am in trouble now. I just signed up for BookBub and Jessica is right. I saw a few books I have already read and paid full Kindle or real price. I ordered the one you profiled above Jessica and there are more I will get. I also agree, I get novels either for my iPad or from the library, never an actual copy any more. Most any art book I bought for my iPad I have had to go get the hard copy. Art/craft, etc. books have to be real ones. I have bought many a cook book for the iPad though. That seems to be okay so far. Thank you for this post Jessica.

  3. I joined Bookbub over a year ago. I have more books now than my kindle can hold. When will I find time to read them all? Who knows but it seems to be a great way to get some books and I love gettinng the e variety!

  4. OK Jessica, I don’t know whether to hug you or strangle you. I just “bought” 5 free books in under 10 minutes. Unfortunately, my Kindle reading list is already longer than my arm. Too bad I can’t read them as fast as I can buy them ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Wow, jessica! I learned that Kindle has an app (for free) for those of us who don’t Kindle, and there’s a free ebook on creativity! Thanks so much for the tips. Now, I just have to learn how to manage the app on my iMac (as I’d rather read it there). It’s very confusing to me. ๐Ÿ™

  6. Love BookBub!! I probably have more book than I can read in a lifetime, from that site!

  7. i tried BookBub, but found it somewhat limiting. what i rely on for free or cheapie kindle books is my daily update from “Pixel of Ink” … i often find new authors i want to try, or new books from favorite authors. ‘course it doesn’t have books on creativity, and maybe for that choice alone BookBub would be the best resource ๐Ÿ˜‰
