After I got a Kindle Touch for Christmas, a friend turned me onto Pixel of Ink and its affiliates. Everyday, they list free and bargain books available for the Kindle and the Kindle app.
Free books? Woo-hoo! Shopping spree without spending money. I was so in. Too in. I wound up with over 350 books on my Kindle, most of them free. Over the past few months, I’ve learned to use more discretion when sorting through the freebies. Now, I only pick up one or two (or three or four) books a day.
I read the reviews, but I also read the first few pages of the sample provided by Amazon. If I’m looking at some kind of reference book, like a cookbook, I make sure there’s a TOC that provides hyperlinks.
I added Pixel of Ink and its affiliates to my Tasty Hot Links on the sidebar. If you need something to read, click away. Free is good!
Today, I picked up the following books:
