12 Days of Tips-mas, Day 10

We’re celebrating Tips-mas this year to give you the greatest gift we can this holiday season–more time. Click here to enjoy our 12 Days of Tips-mas from the beginning, and feel free to sing along as we share our tips each day.

Day 10

On the tenth day of Tips-mas, my IT gave to me…

books for my Kindle.

Depending on who you ask, electronic reading devices are either nearly extinct or never going away. And while personally we’ll never stop loving the feel and smell of holding books with real pages, we can’t deny the electronic allure. For those business tomes you refer to so often, and the classics you read so slowly that you run out of library renewals, an ebook can be incredibly convenient. And who wants to give up prime real estate in a carry-on bag to 5 or 6 vacation paperbacks when you can slim it down to 1 Kindle? View today’s list for ways to find Kindle books for free.

*For those of you who may not be as much into reading, we don’t want you to feel left out. Enjoy this list of the year’s best apps through June instead.

Our Favorite Tip-Bit

For cyber security reasons, our favorite on this list is the last one: the source of Kindle itself–Amazon. A close second are the lists in Goodreads, where the actual weight of our virtual To-Read shelves could give a JCB backhoe a run for its money.


Wouldn’t pick up a Kindle unless you didn’t have a flyswatter handy? Come back tomorrow for something entirely different.
