One of the nicest ways to build a library is to receive books as a gift. I’m sure my children will never have to think too hard about what to get me on my birthday, Mother’s Day or Christmas! Another way to add to your collection of reading material is to peruse the various and assorted book promos floating around the worldwide web.
Book promotions come in all shapes and sizes. There’s the Goodreads Giveaways, the limited time free ebooks on the Amazons (US & UK), and then the myriad of publishing platforms such as Wattpad and Smashwords. And let us not forget book launch parties with door-prizes and gift baskets, many of which not only give you free books, but add swag, tea and biscuits/cookies to the mix!
Once I’ve checked out all the Goodreads Giveaways, though, my favourite method is to go on Amazon and search “free Kindle books”. And that’s how a good 3/4 of my Kindle library got populated!
In this section of The Library, you will find mostly Goodreads Giveaways and Amazon book promos, including freebies and what they call ‘Countdown Deals’. Keep checking back, though, because I will probably be posting more than two per day.
By the way, here’s a link to the Goodreads Giveaway book promo for my little book, Folded Dreams – the Beginning, which will be going on until 20 October! Just click the pic!!
