This Appy Friday, going hand-in-hand with our Balance Your Life tip of reading… Kindle!
Kindle is a standalone device that Amazon sells… but Kindle is also a free app which can be installed on any smartphone or tablet. Kindle has been integrated with whispersync…. So if you read on more than one device, it will save your progress and update it on any device you access.
Kindle gives you access to millions of different books, most that do have a cost. However, books don’t have to cost money.
There is a website called BookBub (https://www.bookbub.com/welcome) where you can sign up for a completely free account. Once you have signed up, it will take you through a series of questions where you can choose what genre of books your favourite is, as well as what device you use to read on. (Kindle, Kobo, or Sony as examples). It will also give you the option of how often you would like to be notified. My recommendation is to say daily, because some book deals only last a day, and if you’re only checking once a week you might miss out!
Once it’s all set up, BookBub will send you an email letting you know each day or week (whatever frequency you’ve chosen) what books are on sale and what books are currently free. By using this website, you could never have to pay for another book again.
Give Kindle and BookBub a try today; maybe it’ll unleash or rekindle a love of reading!
