The second day of the #12daysofbookgifting


On the second day of Christmas my book lover gave to me…

1. E-Readers

Know a bibliophile who has a soft spot for all things tech? Why not kill two birds with one stone by gifting them an e-reader this season?!

There are so many e-readers on the market right now, honestly, it’s hard to keep up. I mean sure, you can get an iPad, but you don’t need to drop 500 buck-a-roos in order to get a quality e-reader.

The Amazon Fire HD 6, for example, has a 6” display that not only offers an unlimited library through Amazon Prime, but also functions as a tablet giving you more entertainment options through games, movies, and apps. The best part about this tablet? It is only $99! This is definitely one of the most affordable tablets on the market.

If you are looking for something that functions less like a tablet and more like an e-reader, Amazon also offers the Kindle Voyage. CNET has declared the Kindle Voyage the best e-reader to date, which obviously means it doesn’t come with a low price tag. Currently, the Voyage is $199.

Barnes and Noble’s, Nook Glowlight, is another great e-reader that is also super affordable at $99. However, if you are currently a B&N member you can save even more by snatching it up for only $89! This e-reader can hold up to 2,000 books and is linked with B&N’s massive book database as well as their experts.


2. Book Subscriptions

I have ALWAYS told myself that I would never be an e-book reader. I’ll admit it I am a book snob. I thought I could never go without that feeling of flipping a page and of nearing the end of a novel.  However, as a frequent book buyer who was trying to tighten her spending, I decided to branch out and give Oyster a try.

Oyster is a book subscription service that offers thousands of books via their website or through their app for about $10 a month. Honestly, this is one of the better decisions I’ve ever made (besides getting a library card). I have saved so much money and it has been so convenient.

Anytime I am waiting (in line, at the doctors, on my sisters (:)) I can easily whip out my phone and catch up on whatever it is that I am currently reading.

I am officially and e-book reader and I am not ashamed. 

There are many other e-book subscribers out there. One you may already know is Amazon Prime. There is also Scribd, which is very similar to Oyster, however is slightly cheaper at $9/month.
