Sample Sunday Yoda Style

Mom got a Kindle for Christmas and she really loves it. She already had an iPad and she read books on that but the Kindle is so much lighter and she can even download Kindle books on the iPad if she wants.

One of her friends at work clued her in to a great website called Pixel of Ink. This website features free or deeply discounted (like $1.99 or $.99) books for the Kindle. Mom and I get their blog delivered everyday and peruse the available books and download some.

Today we found out about a cool thing called Sample Sunday. Apparently it happens every Sunday and authors share samples of their work and we lucky book lovers get to find out about new books and authors. You can follow the hashtag #samplesunday an now Pixel of Ink has started a special Facebook page and an event for Sample Sunday.

So Sunday we are going to plunge into Sample Sunday and find some new books to read. I think that's going to be fun!

You don't have a Kindle? That's okay because there are free Kindle reading apps for most devices.

Mom doesn't have a Kindle, she has a nook, and she loves it! We live pretty far away from the book store, and now she can get new books the morning they're released if she wants them, plus there are tons of free books out there if you know where to look for them.

One book that we've been reading that isn't a freebie is Dog On It. It's a funny story about a dog named Chet who helps his human solve mysteries!
