Load! That! E-Reader!

The world of e-readers is growing and growing and WHOA MAMA EEERRBODY gotz one.

I love my Kindle. I call her Kindlella. Like Cinderella? Get it? [I know. I am terribly punny.] I’ll never quit real books, but I really love the ease of carrying a ton of books around in this one little device.

[By the way, if you’re looking to gift an e-reader, here’s what I suggest. Either go for the super cheap black and white Kindle or get this awesome Kindle Fire. Amen.]

So whether you are giving an e-reader for Christmas OR getting one, Zondervan is doing a major sale on e-books so that you can load up that e-reader. OVER 70 books and Bibles are on sale until January 7th. Go see for yourself. [Also, does it make you feel a little sweaty and nervous that the first row is a Bible, Ann Voskamp, and then ME? No? I’m the only one sweating over that? Ok, cool.]

But I’m going to tell you my favs from the Zondervan sale that I think you absolutely SHOULD.NOT.MISS.

Trust me. I just spent an entire giftcard on these cheapo e-books.


One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp … ONLY $3.79!!

I am just such a huge fan of this book. I read passages from this book on my Kindle at least once a week. It’s worth far more than you are being charged.

story bookThe Jesus Storybook Bible e-book, Vol. 1 … only $2.99!!

This book has TAKEN OVER NASHVILLE. No kidding. Adults are reading it more than kids are. In fact, just yesterday a friend said, “I couldn’t get through it without crying. It is so beautifully written.” I promise if you start with volume 1, you will quickly want Volume 2, Volume 3, and Volume 4… though I can’t find that one to link you to it.

The Story

The Story … ONLY $3.79!!

I haven’t read this one yet, but I bought it too because so many people are talking about this read and the way this version of the Bible is told chronologically and in chapters. I can’t wait to start it.

Perfectly UniquePerfectly Unique … ONLY $3.79!!

Well, you can’t blame me for making sure you know that Perfectly Unique’s e-book is about as cheap as it is every going to get. I hear it’s a decent read, too. 🙂

The Circle MakerThe Circle Maker by Mark Batterson

I haven’t read this one yet, but I LOVE Mark Batterson and I am stoked to get going on this e-book immediately. Seriously, I can’t believe it is this cheap. I absolutely love books on the power of prayer and just reading the description of this one gives me goosebumps. I’m in like whoa.

. . . . .

So those are a few of my personal favorites on the list, but if you’re a fiction fan, there are TONS of great ones for sale and other Bibles and lots of other teen reads.

Remember this opportunity to bulk up your e-library is only good until January 7th, so fill ‘er up now or later, but just get it done before January 7th!

. . . . . .

Any other books on the list that you think we should definitely download? 

Do you love your e-reader? Are you getting one for Christmas?

    I am getting ready for a trip to Australia and I just got your book from Amazon for my iPad!! So pumped to finally read it. I still want it in hardback though so I can make notes and highlight things!

    Have a wonderful Christmas!!

    You are going to LOVE The Circle Maker! I have been reading over the break. You are going to want to have your journal right next to you when you read it. Lots of pearls of wisdom between the front and back covers. Thanks for the other recommendations too. Plan to get the Jesus Storybook to share with my niece tonight.
