    Yep.

    BookBub ROCKS.

    And nope, I DON'T remember how I stumbled up on it, either.

    I thought you guys might've already tumbled to it, and I was late to the party, as usual!

    Bookperk does the same thing - every day, you get email with at least 3 titles that are reduced to $.99-$3.99 (usually $1.99 or $2.99).

    Re: Kindle

    Just my two cents on Kindle. If I had it to do over again I'd get a regular tablet and download the Kindle app rather than get Kindle Fire. It doesn't have a lot of regular apps and downloading audiobooks through Audible.com is full of glitches. Books would only partially download, or they'd be there, then poof, gone. I ended up downloading to my phone, which was more reliable.

    Re: Kindle

    When I was looking to buy something, I asked the sales guy's opinion and he said that the Kindle Fire was the most bang for your buck. I had a coupon for like $50 off, and some rebate coupons, so I bought it. And I haven't regretted it. It seems like it has a million apps, way more than I care about for sure. About the only things I do other than read is pop a bubble or two and get onto youtube, so it's great for that. Having no experience with a regular tablet, I don't know the difference, or what I might be able to do on the table that I can't do on Kindle.

    Had forgotten all about this until I checked the Kindle thread....not even close to the deadline and I've run through my whole credit!

    Re: Kindle

    Dgrey! I have no experience with the Nook, but I LOVE my Kindle. I still have the second edition, but my mom and daughter have newer ones and my youngest has the Fire. They're all on my account. My only hesitation with going with one put out by a book store is that I'd worry about the store going out of business and then what happens to all the books you've bought? I have a little more faith in Amazon. I'm a Prime member and get a lot of perks from that. I order a lot more than books from them... pet meds, gourmet groceries, clothing and jewelry, presents for family members, even an electric lawn mower! (free shipping). I'm sure whatever you go with, you'll enjoy the ease of the device and the ability to have and get books on the run. Enjoy!
    Count your blessings!

    Re: Kindle

    I originally had a nook, then a nook tablet. I loved them both. Then I saw how much fun stuff mrCoz could do on his Samsung tablet, and now I have one of those too. I love it. I have the nook app, and can access my entire nook library. I also have the kindle app as well. I like having the option of both, although I normally just read from my nook app. My Samsung tablet was a found at a great deal and cost around the same as my nook tablet, and has so many more apps available from the Play Store.

    I still have my regular nook, but rarely get it out. The one thing it has different than my tablet (or the nook tablet) is the e-Ink technology, where it looks like a real paper book, and easier seen in bright daylight. I took it on my last vacation, and let my sister borrow it. Then when she started looking into it, we convinced her to go with the Samsung tablet!
