The Burb’s List Replacing Thrifty Thursdays

Posted on Updated on

I will no longer be posting for Thrifty Thursdays.  There are so many sites available that list freebies on a weekly basis, and I just felt that my work was becoming a bit redundant.  Granted, I do this all on a volunteer basis and simply out of my love for reading, but why do the same thing??

So, on Thursdays, I will be posting The Burb’s List.  This was created out of my own desire to have a site that I can visit each week or after reading a book to get an idea as to some titles I may want to read next.  I love reading book reviews, but sometimes, I just want a title that I can quickly glance at to buy, borrow, or check out from the library.  These books will consist of different genres, will include a freebie book that I recommend or am interested in myself, books I have received or purchased that I cannot wait to read, and other book titles I have come across that have been placed on my TBR list.

So, if you are wanting to read a good book but don’t know where to start or just want some ideas, then The Burb’s List will be perfect for  you.

There are some freebie sites that I do recommend.  If you have an e-reader, then you will still want to download some free books, I am sure. Below are some sites that do list freebies.  If you know of any others, please let me know and I will gladly add them to this list.

Freebie Sites:

Pixel of Ink:  Books are primarily Kindles, however it will list free Nook books,too.

Barnes and Noble Community Forum:  These are for Nook users only.  However, I have found that if a Nook book  is free, then chances are it is also free at Amazon.  The books are added as they become available, so just go to the last number page and work backwards to make sure you haven’t missed any freebies.

Barnes and Noble:  For Nook users, you can simply type in the number: Zero(point)Zero—->0.0 and it will pull up any free books that are available for that moment.  I write that because there have been books available for one day and then next were full price.

E-Book Finds:  These are usually for Kindle books, but sometimes audible freebies are also listed.

The Frugal Girls:  Freebies for Kindles and Nooks are usually listed.  Sometimes, just great deals are listed.

Life Optimizer:  These are free classics. Of course, you can always visit Google Books to download them, but I do like this list too.

The Vessel Project: This is a Christian site that has a link for Free Resources.  The books listed are usually for Kindles and Nooks and are typically free.  You can sign up for their newsletter and receive updates as soon as they are listed.

And in the spirit of Freebies…I’d like to provide 2 book giveaways!
