Free Baby Books

I was hesitant on posting this link until I was sure it worked and it works!

I got an email from this company offering me a set of free Dr. Seuss baby books and I signed up. I was told my package would arrive in a few weeks so I waited…and waited…and then I figured it would never come and I was okay with it because it took me two seconds to sign up.

But then today, I checked the mail and lo and behold, free books!


The shipment is allegedly broken up in separate shipments but I got a little stack to start with and I could not be more excited so I wanted to share! Do you have any freebies you know of for moms?

Free Book Hack Part Deux

A few weeks ago I did a post on how to get free books through www.netgalley.com

I am still an avid user of netgalley but I have found another way to get free books and this way does not require writing a review at the end!

Check out https://www.bookbub.com

What you do is you pick your favorite genres, where you get your books from (amazon.com for me) and then they send you a newsletter showing the latest and greatest of books in your favorite genres that are on sale, deeply discounted and often even free! Yes, FREE!

The caveat with this site (same as netgalley) is that the free books and discounted books are limited time offers.  This means you can’t see something and say “I’m going to download this laterz!” Download it now, read it later.

The books are available on all devices including Kindle, Nook, iPad, and Android.

So what are you waiting for? Go read a book!

Free Books through Net Galley

I have to confess, I am a bookworm. I love reading books. I use a kindle paperwhite and in conjunction with amazon prime kindle lending library, I get good use out of it.  But sometimes the library doesn’t have any books I want or the books I want cost more on kindle versus a hardcopy!

This is why I love NetGalley.

In their words:

“NetGalley is a service to promote titles to professional readers of influence. If you are a reviewer, blogger, journalist, librarian, bookseller, educator, or in the media, you can use NetGalley for FREE to request, read and provide feedback about forthcoming titles. Your feedback and recommendations are essential to publishers and readers alike.”

Basically you create your profile, go in, and browse publishers. I choose publishers who have published books I love.  For example, I love the Timebound series so so much. Like, way too much. Yes, I cried when I finished the series, leave me alone!

So I added the published, Skyscape, to my favorites on NetGalley and then found other books they published. Boom! I found about half a dozen that I instantly loved.

The only real downside to NetGalley is that you will sometimes get rejected. I post my book reviews regularly on their website and on amazon, but often publishers will only give their books out for free to book reviewers who use an agent.

To date I have used NetGalley for 11 months and read 14 books for free using their site. Not all were great, some were pre-published manuscripts so they had typos but overall I have been really happy with their website!

REMEMBER-when you post a review with them for a book you got for free you have to state somewhere in review that you got the book for free in exchange for an honest review. Not putting in this statement can get your accounts suspended (both amazon and netgalley).
