This week I have an amazing giveaway to offer thanks to a newer ebooks corporation, GreatBooks. They have not only offered to giveaway one of their silver plans to my readers (which comes with 20 book downloads!) but they have also become my very first blog sponsor, giving me the ability to do what I love and continue to share my crafts, DIYs, and art with my readers!
By now most of you are aware of my love for reading and books in general. Stacks of books are continuously “decorating” my bedside table, coffee table, and lovely bookshelf, strategically placed just outside of my bedroom. In addition to my many stacks of to-be-read-books I also have an ongoing list of books to read in the back of my mind and in my iphone. I enjoy nothing more than curling up with a good book at night or reading continuously when I visit the beach, completing 3-4 novels during a week long visit.
As an avid reader, and one who goes through at least 1-2 books a month, GreatBooks was made for me. It is a one time payment, or you can opt for the month-by-month reading program, which offers cheaper priced books the more you read. The basic, and cheapest plan, their silver plan is $39.95. After paying this lump sum you have access to 20 ebooks, which comes out to $1.99 per book. After this you can go up to the Gold Plan, $99.95 for 100 ebooks, which comes to $0.99 per book, or for $14.95 per month you have unlimited access, with a “downloading ebooks within reason” clause.
The website is easy to use and includes step-by-step instructions on how to download an ebook to your device, whether it is an Ipad, Nook, Kindle, computer, or something similar. The large and colorful book icons make it easy to browse their selection and find what you are looking for.
As I searched for my favorite books I was pleased to find The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon, The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, and The Art of Hearing Heartbeats by Jan-Philipp Sendker. If you haven’t read these books yet, I must demand you do so, each one is touching, interesting, and truly soul changing.
GreatBooks offers thousands of books in a range of categories from fiction and nonfiction to children’s books and how tos. I searched recent titles I had read, and was happy to find them all in their listings. However, as I began searching less known titles I had less success and as I went through my Mom’s book club list, I was a little bummed to only find one title on the list.
Although GreatBooks doesn’t have every book I searched yet they are continuously adding titles and expanding their library.Every “big name” book and New York Times bestseller I searched was found, if these are typically the titles you read this would be a great fit for you. For those who read the lesser known titles I hope you check the site to see if they carry what you are interested in, and if they don’t, I hope you check back to see if new titles are added!
