It’s that time again, time for another “rambling” blog post where I have no set agenda before I start banging away on the keyboard….if you would like to write to me, my email address is Michael at fkbooksandtips dot com (I type it out that way in a small effort to thwart the spam community).
Don’t forget Mother’s Day is this Sunday! If you haven’t purchased a gift for your Mom, wife, grandmother, etc. yet, don’t despair! You can always give her an Amazon gift card that can be used for anything in the Amazon store. To get one today (they will email, priority delivery for Saturday, you name it for free), you can click here or type in http://smarturl.it/giftcard into your web browser.
Kindle Daily Deal & Free App of the Day
I don’t post about the Kindle Daily Deal or the Free App of the Day each and every day. Why? That’s mainly because I’ve been traveling with my “day” job and can’t get the post out that day (I try to setup as many posts as I can in advance because of my schedule). In the interim, you can check the offerings out each day yourself – just bookmark the links below.
Guest Posts from Independent Authors
The guest blog posts featuring independent authors have been fairly popular with the blog’s readers, and I will be continuing that in the weeks to come as I enjoy reading about the authors who create the material I’ve been enjoying as much as you. Look for more of these to come in the next few weeks (there will be another one this weekend), and if you’d like to read some of the past guest blog posts you can click here or type in http://smarturl.it/interviews into your web browser – to provide a little incentive, there are a few free Kindle book offers contained in the posts.
If you hit this page on the blog’s website, you will see five blog post titles and a few lines from each post; just click on the title of the blog post to read the full article. If you want to see more than the five on the page at http://smarturl.it/interviews, just scroll down towards the bottom and click the “Previous” icon located at the bottom left-hand side of the article list.
The Kindle 100
Now that we’re in the month of May, Amazon has updated their list of 100 highly-rated Kindle books that have been discounted to $3.99 or less – each of these has been hand-selected by the staff of Amazon. You’ll see them classified in a variety of genres, and I’ve zeroed in on a couple in the mystery / thriller and science fiction genres. To see what I am talking about, you can click here or type in http://smarturl.it/100books into your web browser.
A week or so ago, I told you about the free sports apps available for your Kindle Fire or Android-enabled phone / tablet computer – actually, I promoted my favorite baseball team to the detriment of others – and I’ve had a lot of requests from people to send them the link again.
To see the lists of free apps detailing most of the professional sports teams – not just baseball but football, basketball, etc. – you can click here or type in http://smarturl.it/sportapps into your web browser.
Pinterest and The Blog’s Social Media Pages
I’m not much for following “pins” of others on Pinterest, but many of you are and have asked for the link to the blog’s Pinterest page. You can click here or type in http://pinterest.com/fkbooks into your web browser and start following away!
While I’m on the subject of social media pages, here are links to the blog’s Facebook and Twitter pages:
That’s all I have for now – I hope you have a great weekend!
