I bought myself a kindle for my birthday. I‘m so excited! Any kindle tips I should know about? Also, the tagged book is so ridiculous so far, but it is a nice break from studying.

readordierachel Just be careful around bathtubs 🙂 10mo
JanJan @readordierachel that‘s a good one thanks! supposedly the new paperweight is waterproof, but I will be very careful. 10mo

Grrlbrarian The Kindle deals of the day can be super. www.bookriot.com does a nice roundup of Kindle deals also that may not be on Amazon‘s main Kindle deals page so worth checking also 🤗 10mo
Soubhiville The daily deals can be really good, as well as the weekly ones. There are also several websites that offer free books- bookbub is the only one I can think of now... and if you have Amazon Prime you also have access to freebies. 10mo
Kimberlone If you have a library card you can connect it to the Overdrive or Libby app and checkout and send ebooks to your kindle! I read so many books on my kindle this way! 10mo
JanJan @Texreader thank you! 10mo
JanJan @Grrlbrarian @Soubhiville @Kimberlone I am excited to save on book purchases with deals and library access! Thank you for the tips! 10mo

sprainedbrain No additional tips, but I love using mine for library books as was mentioned above. Happy birthday!! 10mo

KateFulfordAuthor If you like a page turner that isn‘t a mystery in the strictest sense? If you need another recommendation, may I point you to my People‘s Book Prize nominated debut? Sassy female narrative, laugh out dialogue and a pacy plot. Check the link in the bio for 2 free chapters, reviews and more. 1y
