About six months I scoured the pages of craigslist.com for a quality but gently used iPad. I created a list of several dozen uses that would allow me to be slightly more effective in ministry, saved my money, and was on the hunt. Finally I found an iPad 2 for sale and to my surprise, it was not a scam. Today I am the proud owner of an iPad which has opened the door for many perks including free e-books!
E-books are books that are available in a digital format that allows the user to read them on a digital reader (iPad, Kindle, smartphone, etc.). Kindle created an amazing (and free) app for android and apple devices including the iPad. Using this app, I have the amazing opportunity to download any e-book from amazon.com.
What’s even more amazing, often times authors and publishers will discount their e-books simply to push the number of downloads their books receive. This discount is often 75%-100% off the retail price listed by amazon.com. This is alone is an amazing reason to have the Kindle app.
Finding these e-books can be challenging. Especially if you are specifically looking for books written by Christian authors. Amazon.com has a deals page, but they compile all of the discounted books in every genre which can be a painstaking journey for one good book.
That is why I was so excited to discover my friends at gospelebooks.net. They do all of the leg work for you! And since I signed up for daily email updates, every morning I receive an email of the free and discounted books that they have found. I LOVE THIS MINISTRY! Since I discovered Gospel E-Books about four months ago, I have downloaded 35 e-books and all of them but two were free! Today I’m reading more than I ever have thanks to the amazing books that I’m finding and downloading.
