Amazon had some really good Kindle Cyber Monday deals. I wish I could have bought more, but I only have so big of a budget for books. Below are the books that I did pick up. A few I have already read, but borrowed from the Library. I picked up the Kindle version of Vox even though I own it in Hardcover. I paid full price for the Hardcover - the only book I have done that for this year. It was worth every penny.
Even thought both Audibles and Goodreads are owned by Amazon, there is not an easy way to add Audible books to your Goodreads account. You must manually add them like any book that is found outside of Amazon (even though they are technically not outside of Amazon). You can find instructions on how to add books outside of Amazon here.
In order to better know where my books are located, I created an audiobook folder. If the book has been read and also marked audiobook, then I know that I read the book via audiobook. If it is also marked in my borrowed folder, then I know that I do not own that book. If it is not marked in my borrowed folder then I know that I have that book on Audibles.
I could make a seperate folder to mark each book that I actually own. However, I feel that it would be redundant with my borrowed folder.
Now that you know how to add all your books on Amazon the series is going to focus on the interaction between Kindle and Goodreads. What other things do you want to know? Let me know in the comments below.
With the holidays fast approaching you may be searching for a gift idea for a book lover in your life. Below are a few ideas that will be appropriate for readers of all ages.
As much as your book lover loves to read - they will probably like showing off their love of books. Why not give them some great clothing to do just that?
Reading gadgets are a great idea for a book lover. It is something beyond just getting books, and will be used over and over. How about a digital bookmark to keep track of reading time (perfect for kids who do a reading log for school)? If your reader is constantly straining their eyes trying to read print then they may enjoy this easy to use magnifier. If they like to read before bed, then a book light will help them read while not disturbing anyone else. A bath tray is a great way for a reader to relax without ruining their book, especially if they read electronically. How about a bookmark that has a built in pen and flags. This is great for students. And everyone can use a book holder, which allows you to read while using your hands for something else.
Get something to complete your book lover's wardrobe. From book themed key chains, earrings, clutches, and cuff links there is something for everyone.
