New to e-books and not sure where to start?
If you love to read, but only read print books, you're not alone. But you are missing out!
I'm a massive bookworm and have owned hundreds of books (possibly thousands, it's hard to keep track!). As much as I love the feel of a paper book in my hands, I find the convenience of reading e-books impossible to ignore. But the biggest draw-card for me is the fact that only a small number of books are published to print, whereas the e-book market is growing every day. Your choice of books is immensely increased when you delve into the world of digital books.
My trusty e-reader (I use a Kindle) is one of my prized possessions. The device, which I can hold in one hand, contains hundreds of books, all available to me at the tap of a screen. I can even use the device to buy books and download them in seconds!
But you don't even need to own an e-reader to read e-books!
You can read them on your phone, tablet or computer.
How to read my free e-book
If you're signing up to my newsletter to receive a free copy of my novella, I use the Bookfunnel service to provide my free book, which offers the reader a variety of options for which kind of device you'd like to read on including phone, tablet, e-reader or computers. Simply follow the prompts and instructions to get the book onto your device and start reading! They even have email support if you need assistance.
How to read an e-book you've purchased from a retailer
If you're purchasing a copy of my e-book from a retailer then please see this handy guide from Wiki-how to help you decide.
Free Reading Apps
Rather than purchasing an e-reader, you can download free reading apps to your device (available in your app store)
I purchase my e-books from Amazon and use their Kindle, but when I don't have my Kindle with me, I use the free Kindle app on my phone and tablet. It even syncs my books across devices, so no matter which device I use, I can continue reading from the exact same position in the story.
