New Flash: A MUST see for Kindle & Nook Users

Have you heard or tried eBook Fling? According to PCMag.com, the site just pre-launched today and they are calling themselves "the Netflix for books". It reminds me of Paperback Swap for eBooks. If you lend an eBook, you earn credits so you can borrow an eBook. Don't have any credits yet? They cost only $1.99. Check it out and if anyone has tried it, I am anxious to hear what you think. Personally I am seriously considering trying it for Eat, Pray, Love.

  13. Oh that is very cool! You know I bought a nook but I have never read a single book off of it?! I need to test it out. I think I'm having a hard time making the jump from printed books to e-book. :)

  19. i've heard but haven't checked details. btw: my fave part of Eat Pray Love was the stint in Italy. still must watch the movie.

  20. Briz, Natalie, and Kaye : Yah! Let me know how it goes :)

    Kim: Oh no Kimmy. Say it ain't so? If you had a Kindle, I would swap you with free read suggestions ;)

    Walltowall: I feel ya ;)

    Melissa: Right? Me too!

    Edilicious: Thank you for visiting :)

    Tina: Amen! I was just thinking about that the other day. I went into a B&N and could not believe the costs of print books these days. My prediction? Big book stores like B&N and Borders will die off. Companies like Amazon & Book Depository will increase sales. And we will see a rise in the small bookstores again. :)

    Vv: Good to know and yes you must see the movie :) The scenes of Italy were breath taking :) My fav part of what I've been able to read is her hunger for nearness to God :)

  21. Awesome!! Thanks for the recommendation, Juju! I loved the movie Eat, Pray, Love. Have you seen that?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Julie: I did :) The love parts annoyed me but the locations and her search for faith charmed and lured me :) I think I need to read it. Have you read it?

  35. Oh-oh, I don't know if I love this or what...Well, actually I love this idea because all these books wait for me to read and NOW I can rule the world ;) and then part of me is "great, now all I'll want to do is read and I'll never get anything else accomplished" lol..thank you SO much for letting us all know about this. I can't wait for the site to officially launch!

  36. Wow! This I need to try! It sounds so wonderful, though I'm really curious how it works with Nookbooks, which, if permitted, can be lent only once through the LendMe program.
