our airplane left Ghana, West Africa and is on its way to Kenya, Africa
I love to read! Not only do I like to read, but my kids are avid readers. Sometimes I have a hard time keeping them supplied with books. Last summer while we were on furlough, I took Sarah and some of her cousins to the Library.
Sarah was so excited with all the books available to read. We got her a library card and she checked out as many books as I allowed (you can only keep up with so many books at a time)
However, we do not have the option of a Library here. Plus shipping books over here can add up quickly. So, we found a frugal solution.....KINDLES! We were given some Christmas money one year and bought the kids the basic Kindle. Such a neat little thing that has worked perfectly for us. The kids took their kindles with us on furlough too. They can keep it in their backpack and always have their books with them - on the plane, in the car, hotels, etc.
That same Christmas Ron surprised mewith a Kindle Fire. I am still enjoying it as much today as when he got it for me. You would not believe all the free books that I have downloaded. Probably more than I will ever read.
I find my free and discounted e-books here:
The Frugal Girls
I follow both of them on Facebook and so I see all the deals right on my page. There are many that I do not download - I just pick the ones that interest me.
As time goes on, e-books are easier to find. One of the biggest advantages of e-books for us is that we do not have to pay to ship the book internationally. Plus, we get it instantly - no waiting for weeks for it to arrive. So, even when we buy an e-book, it's still a great deal for us.
Now, there are a couple of other things that I have heard you can do with Kindles, but I still haven't figured them out.
1. Borrowing books from the Library
2. Sharing books from Kindle to Kindle
If anyone has any information on how to do either of these things, I'd love to hear from you.
Do you have a specific site where you find deals on good e-books?
What e-books can you recommend for me or the kids?
