We can’t guarantee your dog will approve, but BookBub is a bibliophile’s dream.

We can’t guarantee your dog will approve, but BookBub is a bibliophile’s dream.

If you love books (and who doesn’t) you’re engaged in an endless battle to budget money and storage space, feed your passions, keep up with your favorite authors, and discover new ones. 

We could argue for ages over whether that’s a problem or a lifestyle, but either way, BookBub can help.

BookBub is the king of bargain book services with features every bibliophile will love:

  • Free. It’s a free service for avid readers who love a bargain.

  • Discover new authors. You decide what books you most like to read, and BookBub sends a daily curated list of sale books in the genres you’ve selected.

  • Keep tabs on your favs. Follow your favorite authors and you’ll receive alerts when they release new titles or their novels are on sale.

BookBub focuses exclusively on ebooks, but that doesn’t mean you need to buy them in that format.  Use their service as a guide to request books from your local library or bookstore.

But what if your taste in books is highly selective—more finely tuned than BookBub’s selection criteria allows?  Search the internet for another bargain book service. There are many specialized ones that focus on mystery, horror, romance, young adult, Christian novels, or other distinct swaths of publishing. If you know just where to look on a library shelf or bookstore for your favorites, there is certain to be a book service designed to bring you selections of books on sale that you’ll love.

When you’ve got a reading problem BookBub might be the solution to managing it, or it might fuel your addiction. Either way, you’ve been warned.
