I read almost all of my books on Kindle. The only exception would be when I’m participating in a book launch for an author and I’m sent a physical book. I find reading books on Kindle to be very convenient, and the prices of Kindle books are almost always less expensive than a physical book.
You can search for daily deals on Amazon’s site, where they break down books by category, both paid and free books. I usually search for deals on Christian books by going to the “Christian Living” category and sort further from there. In addition to “Christian Living”, I usually check the “Leadership”, “Professional Growth” and “Spiritual Growth” categories, looking at both the “Best Sellers” and “New Releases”. Your personal preferences will dictate the sections that you will want to check.
In addition to going directly to the Amazon site, I use three additional resources to search for Kindle deals on Christian books:
- Tim Challies’ blog. For years, I have read Tim’s excellent A La Carte blog, which is published early each Monday through Saturday. Tim does an excellent job of choosing books that his readers will have an interest in.
- Cross-Points Ebooks. Another excellent resource is Cross-Points Ebooks. Cross-Points eBooks is “dedicated to scouring the internet to give you the very best deals on Christian eBooks that will grow both your faith and knowledge of the God of the Bible.”
- Gospel eBooks. This is a site that I’ve just recently become aware of. Although I’ve found some good deals on books I’m interested in, it also includes deals on books that I’m not personally interested in reading (Christian fiction, for example).
I follow each of the above sites on Twitter. You can also subscribe to the sites to have the deals emailed to you.
If you read your books on Kindle, how do you find deals on Kindle books?
