It looks like social distancing protocols will be in effect for at least a couple more months, so I'm turning to my bookshelves for comfort. I'll admit that I have a pretty well-stocked home library, but what if you're lacking in that department? All I can say there is thank you to whoever invented ebooks.
These little virtual treasures have kept me company through many a plane ride, and there's no better time to pick up your Kindle and start reading than during a pandemic. If you don't already have a device, you can order, for example, the all-new Kindle Paperwhite for $139.99 shipped through Amazon Canada.
But you can also read their books through whatever you're on right now, whether that's a phone, tablet or laptop, thanks to the FREE Kindle reading app. Just download it and then sign in with your Amazon account. If you don't have one already, just make sure you register before you try and get started. And once you have the app, you can switch between devices, so you don't have to always read a title on your phone or desktop.
As you might already know, Kindle offers a subscription service called Kindle Unlimited, which grants you access to all the books you could ever want to read. It's basically like a virtual library card, except you won't have to leave your house to "check out" books. Well, you can now start a 30-day trial for FREE!
Once you sign up, you'll have access to more than a million different titles, including complete series to binge-read. The full conditions are available online, and you'll be charged $9.99 for each month you choose to keep the subscription once your trial ends. Quebec residents won't qualify for the free test run.
