The Best Reading Resources:
I ADORE Kindle Unlimited because it gives you access to so many great books to read.
It allows you to read as much as you want with over 4 million book titles, and thousands of audiobooks, comics, and magazine subscriptions to choose from!
You can read on any device (phone, tablet or computer) and cancel at any time. Check it out with a 30 day free trial!
*Kindle Unlimited members can read most previous First Reads editors’ picks for free. See Amazon’s First Reads below!
While I love holding a paperback or hardback in my hands, e-books are where it’s at to save me money and to save shelf space in my house!
While you can read on your phone or computer, I love reading e-books on a tablet. If you don’t already have a tablet, a Kindle Fire is the perfect, affordable option for you to read books plus have access to select apps.
If you love audiobooks, then you’ll want to check out Audible Plus or Audible Premium Plus. With both plans you can listen all you want to a selection of audiobooks, plus originals, sleep tracks, mediation programs and podcasts.
With Audible Premium Plus you can listen to everything in Audible Plus and have access to one title per month from an extended selection of best sellers and new releases that you can keep.
Check it out with a 30-day free trial and cancel anytime.
Libro.fm is another audiobook service that also enables you to support the local, independent bookstore of your choice with a portion of your audiobook sales.
You can set up a monthly membership or purchase audiobooks a la carte. Your monthly membership gives you one audiobook credit and 30% off individual audiobook purchases.
If you like reading physical books and want to support a local, independent bookstore, then shop Bookshop! With every book you buy, the full profit from your purchase will be sent to bookstore you select.
You can also send/purchase gift cards!
If you want to buy romance books, you can also consider buying your books online from one of these independent romance bookstores to support them!
Book Subscription Boxes
Consider a book subscription box if you want physical books AND awesome book swag delivered right to your door each month.
There are book subscription boxes for every genre, but these are my favorite romance book subscription boxes!
