If you are reading this blog then you are already aware that I am passionate about books and reading. If you are a first time reader, take note, I am passionate about books and literacy. It is refreshing to see technology applied to literature. Amazon’s Kindle is one venue but so far only for those with deep pockets. For those of us with a more modest budget, check out BooksFree.com.
BooksFree.com is a revolutionary and for those of us who buy lots of books, economical way to get new books hot off the press. Anyone who has NetFlix will find the BooksFree.com methodology familiar. There is a wide range of subscription plans starting at $10.99/month. They also have audiobooks in both CD and Mp3. You check out the inventory, set up a queue and sit back and wait to be treated to books coming right to your door. You read the books, return them and wait for the next batch. If you absolutely can’t part with a book, you can buy it at a discount. If you have books you own and want to sell them to BooksFree.com, they will apply their payment to your account. Your monthly subscription fee is all you pay, no hidden costs. Shipping both ways is included.
If you haven’t caught the excitement yet, think about it. You can easily drop $8.00 on a new paperback. If you order online, then you pay shipping. If you read a great deal (pretty obvious if you are reading a book blog) you buy lots of books and then wonder what to do with them. I think Booksfree.com is an exciting new concept for those of us who love to read. Check them out at Booksfree.com.
