Up to 80% discounts on eBooks from Amazon



Maybe you got a new Kindle for Christmas, or maybe you use a Kindle reader app on your tablet or smartphone.  In any event, you’re probably always in the market for some deeply discounted books for it.  Today, Amazon is offering up to 80% off on more than 500 educational eBooks for your Kindle.  They are discounting books in many categories: travel, self-help, politics, professional, technical – you name it.  I saw prices as low as $1.49 on these books.  The sale ends today, so you should head on over to Amazon now.

    Shhhh. But I have my nook glowlite running both the nook reader and amazon kindle reader. I’m going to hell for this arn’t I?

    @ Andrew- How do you use so many readers? I have two and am trying to figure out how to use both of them. Love this sale though, thank you!

    Yes you can. The process is a bit time consuming, and requires you root your nook. Kindle has an android app that allows you to use any android device as a book reader. My process was rooting the Nook. This was not hard. You can Google around and find directions on how to do this. It’s pretty simple. After you root it you will have the amazon app store. But Ironically you can not get the amazon kindle reader app from the amazon app store. Weird I know. You must then install the Google app store. Directions for this are easily Googled as well. This is where it gets tricky. The process is time dependent and certain steps must be taken in a specific order, while partially blind and a short period of time. Otherwise you have to start the process ALL OVER. Once you have Google Play store installed you can install the Amazon Kindle reader app.

    After this is installed you have the ability to choose your default start up app. The Nook, AWE menu, or Kindle. I kept the Nook app as startup since I use it the most. However it places a tinny arrow on right hand side you can tap and switch between at any time.

    I also installed a basic PDF reader and a few other items. Google calendar, and a dictionary.
