Hubs and I have been buying books via Amazon for at least fifteen years, since back in the days when we connected via
squirrel cage dial-up. It’s proven to be a great way to find books at prices we could afford.
A month or two ago, I stumbled on the Kindle Matchbook program. This program allows you to buy the Kindle edition of books you buy in print for less than $3!
I checked our account and was immediately able to grab some of our favorites like Love Does and A Million Miles in a Thousand Years. I’ve found that they continue to add books to my options file, books like the Bob Books and The Child’s Story Bible and tons of books that I’ve purchased for school. There are even books that I no longer have in my hot little hands, either lost or given away.
What a fun way to add to your library for just a few dollars!
Plus, by buying the kindle edition for cheap, you can free up space on your bookshelves.
Remember that you don’t have to own a Kindle device to read Kindle books. There are a number of free reading apps you can download to your computer, iPad, phone, or other device.
Get my freezer cookbook for less than $3.
Speaking of great Kindle deals…. The Kindle version of my freezer cookbook is now on sale for $2.99. This is basically the lowest price I’ve ever seen on this book. So, get it while you can.
Some readers have said they are buying them as gifts. Yes, you can gift a kindle purchase; they give you a gift certificate to print or email to the recipient.
Others have said they are buying the digital copy so that they can access it via phone from the grocery store. I say, “Work it, baby.” Wondering how this book can save you money? Check out this post on how to fill the freezer to save money.
