Reader's Gold!!

Is just read The Maze Runner series (however not the prequel ... Yet...) And thought they were pretty good. The language is a little off - the author has made up his own curse words, but very suspenseful story line. Over all, I'd recommend if you like action/adventure books, especially if you liked the Hunger Games and/or Divergent books.

Speaking of which, I came upon a gold mine while trying to find The Maze Runner, as my local library had two copies and over 100 holds on each...

I have a Kindle app on both my tablet and my phone. That site has tons of ebooks to download! There's a search box in the top right corner that is started with by searching for the titles of books I know are being made into movies, buy after I exhausted that list, I just looked in the 'series' tab. For me - Pure Gold!!! Things like Divergent, Kingdom Keepers, Percy Jackson (and other Rick Riordan books) and more are there!

Most books were an epub format (and all super easy to download), which doesn't work with kindle or kindle apps, but there's another website,, which converts the files to the right format. (Some didn't work with this site, so I had to use a different one, I just Googled 'convert epub to mobi'). Also, I had to do the converting on my desktop, it wouldn't work on my tablet.

After I had that finished, I could transfer the files strait to the kindle folder on my tablet by connecting via USB.

However, to read the books on both my tablet and phone, I download another of Amazon's apps on my desktop, 'Send To Kindle',  find those files that you converted , right click, and select 'Send to Kindle'. I found added 100 Free ebooks, mostly from the ibookpile site, and still have oodles of space on Amazon's cloud!

(If you have a kindle app, you should automatically have Amazon Cloud Drive storage space,)

(You may not have to convert your files from epub if you are using the Send to Kindle desktop app, I just barely wanted access on 2 devices so mine were already all mobi format)

I hope this will be worth something to someone, as I had a hayday finding all these free ebooks!!!😁😄

Oh I probably should mention, both my devices are android- not sure what format ebooks with kindle on apple would take - if they'd even be different...
