Brief disclaimer…. It’s Monday What Are You Reading has moved from me to Kathryn at Book Date. She is rocking this so please definitely go and check out how awesome she is and keep on sharing your reading!
For me… I am not reading. Or I guess I could say I am… but not making progress. Same book as last week, same audio…. a quick visual refresher:
Becoming Steve Jobs (my fascination with all things Jobs) is so interesting. A road trip to the cabin later this week will certainly put a healthy dent in this audio book. Wildalone is also interesting and my cabin time will certainly finish this one as well and I expect allow me to start others.
the real reason I am writing this post today is that I need a little assistance from those of you who use e-readers more frequently than I do (I have one. I think I know where it is.) A friend of mine from High School asked me this question via Facebook this morning:
Dear Sheila, Being your friend on Facebook, I am aware that you are an avid book reader. I have an idea that may solve my gift giving dilemma indefinitely for one or two of my toughest recipients, and in pursuit of that notion I would like to take advantage of your knowledge and opinions as such. I would like to gift an enrollment in a book of the month club for e-books. I have leaned of a few “streaming” services that offer unlimited reading, but that offer no guidance in choosing the books -and I think that’s the best part. And there is one ‘of the month club’ that offers this that I keep running into, but there catalog seems small. If I have to, I will give the Amazon unlimited thing along with a subscription to a BOMC community newsletter or forum.
So there it is. He specifically said no need to research yet now that the question has presented itself, I feel it is one that perhaps others have thoughts on – or may like to know as well. I have never used an e book of the month subscription but I bet some of you do or have. So the question stands as…
1. What is the best service to consider?
2. Are there ones to avoid?
Any feedback on what makes them awesome or not so much would be wonderful
That’s all for today. I have a lunch date with a friend that I am looking forward to and other than that I will be working on a few projects this week for the Library. Pretty low key and I think that is about where I need to be right now, this week especially. Oh – and I am expecting an exciting delivery today that hopefully will start a whole new conversation here, one that I used to do frequently but rather fell away…. more on that soon.
Happy Monday all!
