The Latest Must Have For Book Lovers | BookBud



I love to read books. I find it such an escape from the world and find nothing more relaxing than curling up on the sofa with a cup of tea and diving into a good book. This past year I feel as though I haven't dedicated enough time to reading, and one of my aims for this year is to change this and read more. You can read about my other aims for 2015 as well as an overview of 2014 here. Although I love to read physical copies of books, I do own a Kindle which is a much cheaper and easier way of buying and storing books.
 
I stumbled across the website The Book Insider after reading an article on the Women's Health website, which took me to an article titled: Book Lovers Are Totally Obsessed With This Website. You can also read the article here. As a book lover myself, how could I not read an article with this title?!? The article refers to a service provided by BookBub which can send a personalised list of book offers and freebies straight to your inbox, for free. All you have to do is sign up using your e-mail address and pick which format you would like to receive offers for, for example I chose Amazon Kindle as mine. The website then takes you to a screen with a huge range of book genres for you to choose from, and so you tick which ones you would like to hear more about. I chose, Thriller, Historical Novels, Comedy, Fantasy, Crime and Cooking to name but a few, and you can pick as many as you like.
 
Once all of this is completed and your preferences made it takes you to the BookBub website that has the full listings of various genres with many book titles, all of which are on offer, either reduced heavily in price or for free. There is also a tab called Recommended For You, which evolves and becomes more specific the more you use the website. As well as having the website to browse whenever you like, BookBub will also send you regular personalised e-mails of the best offers based around your preferences.

It seems like such a good service to me and I will definitely be exploring the website to find some reading gems for this year. Be sure to let me know if you decide to sign up to it too!

 
What books will you be reading this year?
