I don't know if I'll ever truly be able to part with my physical books, no matter what Marie Kondo says. However, I travel pretty often, and I'm getting a little tired of lugging all those paperbacks around for the plane rides. I mean, I should have some space in my luggage for clothes and souvenirs, right?
I've read a few ebooks before, and I definitely don't mind the experience of "flipping" through the pages on a screen. And while I'm not totally ready to invest in an e-reader yet, there are plenty of apps for that – and there's a way you can save money on new ebooks, while helping your friends out at the same time.
For Black Friday, Kobo has launched a new refer-a-friend deal, where you can give away a FREE audiobook trial or a $10 discount toward ebooks. All you have to do is enter the email address associated with your Kobo account (you can register here if you don't have one already), along with your first and last name. Then, just pass along what they send you! To receive any rewards, your friends will have to click through your invitation.
When they make a purchase using that link, Kobo will email you either a $10 or $20 promo code within eight business days. Then you can turn around and put it toward more books. It's a win-win!
