Fun Stuff For Kindle & Free Kindle Apps For All!

If you’ve been following my blog for any amount of time, you know I’m a NookColor fan. But today I was surfing the web checking out other ereaders when I stumbled upon a really nice site designed specifically for Kindle users. This site will allow you to:

(1) Do advanced Kindle book searches
(2) Do advanced paper book searches
(3) View free Kindle titles
(4) Track Kindle price drops
(5) View recent Kindle price drops
(6) Check to see if your favorite title has been Kindlized
(7) View books recently converted to Kindle

If this sounds good to you, just click here and check out eReaderIQ! I think you’ll really like this place!

Okay, I know what your saying… “Hey Don, what about the millions and millions of us that use Nooks… What do we do?” No problem! If your ereader isn’t a Kindle, but you really want to play on eReaderIQ, just click here and download the Kindle app that will work on your PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad, BlackBerry, or Android Phone. You can have your Nook and play Kindle too! Life is good and Geekism is great! Go read something!

eBook Sales Top Paperback Books!

The Association of American Publishers recently published sales results for February, 2011. Surprise! The publishing format in #1 place was ebooks! The AAP also reported ebook sales increased 202.3% over February, 2010! You can read the report by clicking here.

The report goes on to say, “Many publishers report that e-Book readers who enjoy a newly-released book will frequently buy an author’s full backlist”. That should be making both authors and publishers happy!

Personally, when I’m reading a story unfolding through a series of books, as I finish one volume I immediately purchase the next one without even getting out of my chair!

I’ve got a meeting to attend so I’ve got to cut this short. Thanks for stopping by!
