Amazon’s Kindle First Program

IMG_5298

Amazon Prime subscriber?

Kindle owner?

if you answered “yes” to both questions, are you taking advantage of Amazon’s Kindle First program?

When it comes to reading, I’m not fussy. I alternate between analog *wink* and digital books. And thanks to this great program, my Kindle has been getting quite a workout.

Book mail is the BEST mail! I don’t know about you, but three of my favorite words are advance reading copy. And whether it’s delivered to my mailbox or my Kindle, there’s nothing quite like the thrill and privilege of reading a book before its official publication date. With Kindle First, I’m able to read titles before their release into the wild and I gain access to authors I might not have discovered otherwise.

Each month, several new titles by Amazon Publishing authors are chosen by Amazon Publishing editors from Kindle’s most popular genres. Prime members can select one book for free, and the book becomes part of your permanent Kindle library.

This month, I chose A Criminal Defense by William L. Myers Jr.

To give you a better idea of the range of titles offered, my past selections have included The Mutual Admiration Society: A Novel by Lesley Kagen, Who We Were Before by Leah Mercer, and We’re All Damaged by Matthew Norman.

As you can see, if you answered “yes” to the questions above and are not taking advantage of Kindle First, you’re missing out on early access to some great titles.

If you are taking advantage of this perk, what authors and titles have you discovered? I’m always on the hunt for the next great read!

Until next time, be kind to yourself. And each other.

Weekly Wrap-Up

It’s been awhile, but I’M BACK! Kicking things off again with my Weekly Wrap-Up.

Seven things that moved me, grooved me, or improved me. 

ONE: This? True love. You May Want to Marry My Husband is an amazing piece of writing by the incredibly courageous Amy Krouse Rosenthal.

TWO: I see an evil face in this burning tree. And while it’s giving me the creeps, I can’t look away.

THREE: Fascinating. Turkeys Circling a Dead Cat Are Probably Weary, Not Working Dark Magic.

FOUR: Squee! Hall & Oates + Tears For Fears Plot Joint North American Tour. I am SO THERE!

FIVE: Enough said. img_5218
 

SIX: Schitt’s Creek: The best comedy on Pop TV and Netflix. Do yourself a solid and watch it. Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara, Dan Levy, and Chris Elliott. Need I say more?

SEVEN: “Everything has a purpose.” Amen, Francisco Lindor. Indians’ Lindor inspired by sister’s cancer battle.

Until next time, be kind to yourself. And each other.
