Do you love your Kindle, but have limited money to fill it with great reads? Never pay full price for a kindle book again (unless you want to) using these two tips to save money on Kindle books.
Never Pay Full Price For A Kindle Book Using These Two Tips
(Links in this post are affiliate links. I will be compensated when you make a purchase by clicking those links. See my disclosure page for more information)
1. Use The Power Of The Wishlist
Every Amazon member has a wishlist. You can find it by scrolling under the “Buy Now” button to the “Add to List” button in the area where you go to read book descriptions. Make sure the book is on the Kindle format before you place it on your wish list.
Now when you go over to your wishlist, you can see the current price of the book. I made my wishlist the default page my computer goes to whenever I visit Amazon (I really can’t remember how). Every day I take a few seconds to scroll through my list of books I want to buy. When the books drop below my set “buy me” price, I grab the title. By doing this, I rarely pay more than a few dollars for a Kindle book.
2. If Your Are An Amazon Prime Member, Choose This Option
If you are an Amazon Prime member, you can drop the price of your Kindle book even further by taking advantage of the $1 off digital products promotion that Amazon often offers if you take regular shipping instead of 2-day shipping.
Bonus tip: When you buy one discounted book, Amazon will show you other books that might interest you just under your receipt for your order. It is usually worth scrolling through this list as often it contains more marked down Kindle titles.
Want Free Books And Magazines?
For Free Audiobooks, visit your library first and see what apps they offer for free audiobooks. If your library doesn’t offer such apps, then check out the Learn Out Loud website.
For Free Paperbacks, I love the site My Reader Rewards Club for free Christian paperback books. When I am finished reading them I pass some on to friends and others I place in Little Free Library boxes where I can then grab a new book to read for free. Use this link to sign up for My Reader Rewards Club and start your account off with 25 points towards your first book (offer could change at any time).
For Free Magazines, I use the site RecycleBank to earn points that I can cash in for free magazines. It is super easy to earn points and it doesn’t take long to get enough for a year subscription to some of the most popular magazines out there, including Real Simple, Reader’s Digest, Oprah, and more. Go here to join RecycleBank.
10 Of My Favorite Reads From the First Half Of The Year
Meant to Be Mine is a light-hearted romantic read. Perfect for vacation.
Warning–there are passages in this book that deal with physical and mental child abuse. However, In Broken Places paints a positive future for those who have survived child abuse.
Oh, my! Chris Fabry has become my favorite fiction author in the last few years and Under a Cloudless Sky is one of the reasons why. This book will keep you guessing right to the very end. Don’t start it late at night because trust me, you won’t be able to put it down.
The overall message I took away from Driftwood Tides is that love and healing is possible even in the most dysfunctional of families.

An autobiographical story that will take your breath away. The Waiting is an extraordinary tale of the reunion of an adoptee and a mother.

Your family and your friends want your company more than they want a perfect hostess experience, that is the message I came away with when I read Present Over Perfect.
