Refurbished Kindle Paperwhite $85 Deal of the Day

paperwhiteToday’s Kindle deal of the day is a Certified Refurbished Kindle Paperwhite (current generation) with special offers for only $85.00.

My Paperwhite has become my go to ereader. The front lit screen is easy to read on and is a very bright white when compared to the screens of the other Kindles or either one of my Nook e-ink ereaders. It is great for reading in bed without an external light! 🙂

Digital Book Day site extends free book portal for one more day

Yesterday, July 14, 2014, the free book event being offered by DigitalBookDay.com came to a screeching halt when the server crashed–and crashed again. Over 400 e-books were available for free.

Today, there is a post on the website announcing that they will be keeping the site open another day due to the server crashes that kept many people from accessing the free books. Readers are cautioned to double check book prices as all authors may not be able to keep their books free for an extra day.

According to the site, even with the server crashes, over 10,000 readers were able to download over 70,00 books.

According to the blog stats on my post yesterday, there was a huge amount of interest in this free book event. 🙂
