I am so gullible! Plus some free ebooks. There is a connection, I promise.

Summer is all about unfinished projects for me.  Tonight I finished one such goal — I finished reading Life of Pi. My sister loaned the book to me months ago and I started reading it that day. It was such a beautiful work of literature but painfully slow, and I stopped. The bookmark stayed there for weeks. At my brother-in-law’s urging, I forged ahead this week and finished the book. In doing so I realized that I am so gullible. For the longest time I thought this was a TRUE story.  I don’t really know why I thought that, except it seems that someone told me that once.  Like maybe when we were watching the movie preview in a commercial or something.   So I’m thinking (nearly the ENTIRE book) that this boy is floating in the Pacific Ocean with a tiger in his lifeboat.  The more I read, the more breathless I became.   It also solidified my feeling that I never want to go on a cruise.   Several times I stopped and incredulously told my husband what just happened.   My eyes were getting bigger and bigger, just imagining all of these events.

The Lost Code and more — free on Nook & Kindle

This post contains affiliate links. The opinions shared here are 100% mine.

I’m excited to see a really good freebie today for Nook download.  The Lost Code is often mentioned along with Divergent and Percy Jackson series.  I loved both of those stories, so I know this will be a winner for me.   It’s still $8.02 on Kindle but I wouldn’t be surprised if the price goes down now that it’s free on Nook.  As always, please verify that any of the posted books are free before you click submit.  The prices change so frequently that I don’t always have them updated here!

Memorial Day Weekend….. Shopping and free ebooks.

What’s your Memorial Day weekend have in store?  We’re welcoming some houseguests.  I’m crossing my fingers hoping that we can swim and grill out….in that order.  I may do a little shopping since there are so many great sales this weekend.  I also got very frustrated today because my steam mop finally kicked the bucket.  I love that thing!  It was time to replace it anyway, so I grabbed this Groupon deal for a CHI steam mop/vacuum combo.  I had around $61 in Groupon credit sitting in my account, so the whole thing cost less than half of the offer price.  SWEET considering that it is selling on Amazon for $199.99!  The red was sold out so I got the blue.  What color is your preference?I love Tea Collection clothes for my kids and they’re offering some great deals!  You’ll find $15 Girls Dresses, $12 Girls Leggings, $12 Boys Tops……the savings abound.     The sale ends 5/27 so grab the deals while you can.

There won’t be much reading in store for me this weekend.  There are some good books available for FREE so I’m going to download them and save them for a more peaceful day!

In honor of Memorial Day, I’ll start our Freebie Friday list with Deployed.  I hope we all take a moment this weekend to say a prayer of thanks for those men and women who sacrifice so much for our freedom.

Deployed (Called to Serve) is free on Kindle and on Nook.

Friday Freebie: free ebook Goodies for your Nook and/or Kindle

Today I returned from a 3-day trip with my sixth graders to a camp about an hour from our town. Whew!  I’m back to civilization now and downloading book freebies.  Today’s freebie is Sanctus, a thriller that has great reviews on Amazon.

It’s free for Nook and Kindle. The Kindle version is the enhanced edition, which sounds really cool! [Read more…]

What are you reading this weekend?

Today we had such a beautiful afternoon that I couldn’t help but spend a few hours piddling around in the garden.  I planted a few seeds (zucchini, squash, and beans this time!) and fruitlessly picked out the maple seed “helicopters” that are taking over my yard.  Within minutes more blew into the garden, but that’s okay.  It gives me an excuse to piddle some more later. My husband cleaned out the pool and we then enjoyed a wonderfully simple meal with today’s harvest.   It was just one of those perfect spring days that is a window into summer.  Having friends over for dinner, gracing the table with beautiful summer settings (15% off Hostess & Entertainment  from Layla Grace right now!), and staying up way too late looking at the stars……I love days like this.

This weekend, though, it’s supposed to rain so I’m sure I’ll read a book or four.  Be sure to check out these freebie downloads while you can get ’em for nothing!!

 Saving Hope is free for Nook download today. It’s still $9.99 on Kindle.

How about a free ebook? Kindle and Nook downloads

If your Kindle or Nook is feeling empty, or the carousel is getting a tad tedious, check out this read for some suspense!

This book is supposed to be the perfect concoction of thriller, suspense, and history — great for fans of Dan Brown novels.

It’s free on Nook, but still $9.10 on Kindle.

It’s a historical fiction book and I couldn’t wait to grab it.  This summer I plan to do a lot of reading by the pool, so I definitely want to keep my Kindle well stocked.

Here are a few more freebies I came across.  [Read more…]

Free Kindle download — Nook too — of Storybound, jokes for kids, saving money, and more!

I stayed up until the wee hours of the morning (3 AM!) reading a new series, Postcards from Misty Harbor Inn.  I didn’t plan to stay up that late!  I finished the first book last night and just had to start the second one.  Then I had to finish the second one.  Then I could go to bed with a sigh.  I thought the books would be super cheesy, but they were absolutely adorable.  Look for the reviews on my bookshelf soon!  I can’t wait to pass these along to my mother-in-law. She loves to read, too, and I know she’ll enjoy these.  What good books have you read lately?

It’s time for this week’s Friday Freebie and there’s a good one for kids this time.  I love when there’s a good children’s story available for free Kindle download.  My kids enjoy reading books when we’re on the go and the Kindle makes it so easy!

This week’s freebie is Storybound, which has great reviews.  The retail price is $16.99 and you can get it for free on Kindle today, so get your clicking finger ready! [Read more…]

I’m excited that Barnes and Noble is offering a freebie for the little ones today. Bliss sounds like a really cute book about magical bakers. My daughter is obsessed with Cupcake Wars–I know that this is a book she’ll enjoy!
