I've just signed up for my 30-day free trial and wondered if there were any good books on there to look out for? I'm quite a fast reader so can potentially get through loads in the next 30 days. Thanks.

It seems to me to be a lot of the books that are free anyway, plus a couple of things they think will draw people in, like the Harry Potter series. I haven't seen anything that would make me want to sign up.

Same here. I had the free trial and found a couple of books I wanted, but out of the 200 or so books on my ereaderiq wish list, that was it. I get almost all my books at 99p or so when ereaderiq tells me they are cheap, so I could buy several books of my own choosing for that sort of money anyway, without the subscription commitment.

Kindle Unlimited is totally pointless IMHO.

No I don't think so. I had noticed a couple of things which are on my to-read list but when I started making a mental note of which in my to-read list are on it, most of them aren't, I don't think it will save me any money.

OnIklkey, tell me more about this? Is it an app or a website?

Are you asking about the www.ereaderiq.co.uk website? You paste in a link to the kindle book on amazon, give them your email address and set a price and they will email you when the price drops below your set price, or you can follow a favourite author.

Book prices on amazon go up and down a lot - click on the more info link when you have stored a book on ereaderiq to see historical price variations.

I've had about 150 books for 99 pence or so, so now I don't allow myself to buy a book unless it is cheap, but just put it on my ereaderiq list - I have about 200 books on there - some might never drop in price, but I've got loads of unread books so I'm just slowly working my way through them.

Ive found one thats had me laughing out loud.
Light reading worth a look, its called Fat Chance.

Ah thanks - if it's email based I might not bother. I'll have a look though.

the book Fat Chance is by Nick Spalding , and you can get the kindle app for your phone or computer, nice thing is adjusting the background colour, line spacing and font size so its easy on the eyes.

I've just read The Summer We All Ran Away which was very good.
