The Book Corner / Amazon daily freebies
« on: October 10, 2010, 10:27:56 pm »
I posted the link to this blog in another spot of this forum but I think it fits better here.

I check there daily and grab whatever free books I want quickly. Amazon sometimes only leaves them free for hours or days before they are back to retail prices.

Enjoy!  :)

Kindle Accessories / Choices with built in lights

I really have my heart set on having a light built into my Kindle cover. The only ones I have seen like that are the plain color ones from Amazon.

Since I have joined this forum, I've realized there are many beautiful cover choices out there. But do any of them come with light?

Here is a link to a blog that posts the books available free from Amazon that day. Many of these books are returned to regular price within hours or a day of being offered for free so grab what you want when you see them!


Introductions & Welcomes / Hope to make some reading friends

Hello everyone! I'm Roberta from northern Florida. We moved here 3 years ago to be close to my parents. We are from the beautiful state of West Virginia and hope to return there one day. I am the mother of four mostly grown children. My youngest is a 17 year old son.

I don't yet own a real Kindle. I'm saving for one using 3 different points sites where I have gotten gift cards equally $85 already applied to my Amazon account. I've been working on it less than a month I expect I will own my first Kindle within the next 30 days.

Right now I use Kindle for PC where I have about 50 books, all of which I've gotten free. I check a blog daily that tells me which books Amazon has for free that day. I grab the ones I want fast as they usually go back to regular price within a day. I have a wishlist on Amazon of non-free books that I will be spending my points on after I get my Kindle.

Kindle for PC has been a dream come true for me. The only downfall is that I read in bed a couple of hours each night and my laptop doesn't accommodate that well. Looking forward to owning a real Kindle and looking forward to making some new friends who share my love for reading!

Tips, Tricks, and Troubleshooting (Kindle) / PC to Kindle w/free books

Hello I'm new the forum and have a question that I hope I'm posting in the right place.

I am currently using Kindle for PC while saving for a real Kindle through several points sites. I now have $85 on my Amazon account so, wich a real Kindle within reach, I have starting thinking about getting my current books onto my Kindle.

Having no disposable income but a love for reading, I check a blog daily that lists all the free books Amazon is offering at the time. I have downloaded many free books ... all of which have now returned to regular price.

I always thought I would be able to move my books from my PC to my Kindle. But, from what I'm reading here, it seems I will have to re-download them from my Amazon account. I'm wondering if they will charge me since none of my books are free any longer? Or will I be able to download them for free since they were free at the time I originally downloaded them?

Thanks in advance for any anwers.  :)
