I like to save money whenever I can, and spend it on other important things such as food, travel, and Championship entry fees.
So when I came across this tip about Amazon, I couldn’t resist.
I talked about the Amazon Kindle in a previous post, as it’s the best device to read several books concurrently especially when travelling.
The Digital selection on Amazon Bestsellers List are full of popular items that have “sold” including the free items. Therefore it appears on the bestsellers list. It’s too bad you can’t sort by price, and then just buy (for free that is) and download all the books to your hearts content.
Whispernet’s 3G network isn’t available in Canada, but luckily Seattle is a short drive away.
Here is the best part. If you find the price of a Kindle too expensive, but already have an iPhone or iTouch, then you are in luck.
Now Support for iPhone and iTouch
Another great feature of the Amazon Kindle is you can read these Kindle books on your iPhone or iTouch with by getting it free from the Apple App Store. Other benefits include:
