I love books, don't you? I've always had a love for
reading you can learn so much! I've tried Audiobooks
and Ebooks before but I prefer them the old fashion way!
So are here some ways you can get them for free or low
cost! You can also try audiobooks or ebooks this way.

Here goes!:

Check out books at the pubic library:

Of course you can get books here but
the downside is their not yours to keep.
But you can keep them for weeks! You
can also recheck them out if you like!

Did you know?

That the library has book sales that
you can attend? Many times they will
hand out free or very low cost books
instead of hauling them back to the
storage room.

Get free Kindle books:

Do you have a Kindle or Nook?
Well if you do you will be happy to
 know that you can get hundreds of
thousands of  free ebooks that you
 can download straight to your
kindle or nook! You  don't even
have to have one of those to be
able to read to read these books!
You can use your computer or
your smart phone! All you need
is the App!

Kindle Ereader App:

your PC, Iphone,Ipad, Mac,

what you need to use the
Kindle Android App.

iphone, ipad, PC, or Mac.

Sony Ereader app:

 Android, and tablets.

Download a free audiobook:

Ever tried audiobooks? I have!

I had a few from Pastor John Hagee
and Joel Osteen! I have to say I liked
them a lot! Maybe you will too! So here
are a few places you can try them for
free! Who knows maybe you will love 
them so much you will become a member!

a 30 day free have trial and you can cancel at

reading programs for kids! If you sign them up
this summer they can also receive money, gift

Imagination Destination that gives out
a free book to each child who reads 8
