Can anyone recommend (or not) BookBub?
Definitely. I get daily emails with great deals from them. Not every email contains books I download, but I had some great reads from there and am happy to be able to afford my reading without resorting to sketchy online websites.
I love bookbub! <3
I have used BookBub for over a year (maybe 2). I do recommend it. I’ve found a number of great reads either for free or for a small fee. I have a Nook and BookBub is quite compatible for any other B&N users out there.
Love BookBub! Can sort by genre, lots of freebies, & costs of non-freebie books reasonable. Enjoy!
Well worth it.
i love it helps me to find books that are at lower price on amazon it is great
Once in a while you can find a treasure.
Love it! It actually goes straight to Amazon when you order, so you are paying Amazon for books.
Some you can order via Amazon or iBooks (Apple-which I prefer). A great site. I echo what others have commented
I get the Book Bub daily emails, but I find the daily Goodreads Deals more accurate to my tastes. And the GR email notates when the deal expires.
I LOVE BookBub! You can choose to only get free books if you want (this is great if you don’t have a particular title/author you want) and they have pretty good deals too if you want to pay for books. They have options to get books for Nook AND Kindle, whereas some sites only have options for one or the other. I think they also have a PDF option, but I can’t remember for sure. If you want a particular book, you can put it in your “want” list, and if it goes on sale or is free then BookBub emails you to let you know. I really love their site. I’ve tried other sites and was not as happy with them. Oh and in their daily email, BookBub usually includes at least one free book option, if not more. It’s a great way to find new reads while on a budget.
love it…it links to Amazon but be aware it does not take you to http://smile.amazon.com/
I didn’t know about this….thanks!
Thanks for pointing that out, I want my charity to get it’s wee bit from my $1.99 purchase!
Definitely recommend yes. I get the daily free/cheap kindle books email and have got some previously unknown books via that.
I’ve been using Bookbub for months. Great way to get good books at great savings. I use it for my Kindle.
I only search BookBub’s website once a week or so (for free). I subscribe to Goodreads’ daily deals, Book Riot’s daily deals, and Modern Mrs. Darcy’s as well.
Its great for about a year. Then, I figured it was time to start reading the books instead of poring over the emails lol. I ended up with hundreds of free books and it is hard to figure out which one to read, so I ditched them all and now I just check out books from the library. Ebooks. I have borrowing privileges from many libraries, so I have access too all of the services.
Summary – book bub and similar services isn’t worth it to me. I rather pick out the books that I want instead of deciding amongst random books.
I do think you have to be careful to not just get something because it’s free. However, I have used it to try new authors cheaply, to buy series books I don’t own (and wouldn’t pay full price for) as well as a few great bargains.
I get the daily email and often find books I want for my Kindle.
Agreed. Once in a while you find a treasure. If you like to read relatively short novels quickly then this is your thing. An anomaly will float up once in a while that peaks your interest. Just keep in mind how my dribs and drabs you can spend a lot of money, like candy in a candy store!
I love Book Bub and also Robin Reads-those are the two I have kept after having several of the email ones.
