Saw Bookbub advert and it had good reviews, so I down loaded the app to my iPhone. I do not know if these are audio books or e reading books, the app does not make that clear. Will they go to my Kindle app on my phone? Anyone know please?

I've never heard of Bookbub, what is it?

You can Google and it explains.

It’s just a list of books you can download onto your Kindle ap , I get some quite different books that way ,

Is this a wheeze to get us to download the app, I wonder?

I get the Bookbub email every day. I have occasionally found an author or title that appeals to me often at a reduced price. if I don't want the titles offered, I simply delete the message. Just download it and see for yourself. If you don't like it you can easily unsubscribe.

You have a suspicious mind 😱FC - but the OP’s name isn’t familiar, so I suspect you’re right,

Thanks GG, I wasn’t sure if I’d read the opening post correctly, as the cat’s tail keeps getting in front of my eyes 🐱

I have had the book bug email for years now.
You get offered several books a day, some are free and some are priced at 99p.
I usually try several a week.Nothing is lost if you don’t like them.
It is not a scam or a con.

This is a genuine question Fanny. I have been a member of Gransnet for many years, just not posted on the books forum before. Thanks aggie for your constructive reply.

FC 😂
Perhaps turn the cat round and wear Davey Crockett style?

I’m so sorry, I do sincerely apologise Howjado thanks

I did in fact down load the app.
I couldn’t work out whether the books were to be read on the app either.
It’s not very clear, I agree.

The books go onto your kindle or phone or iPad, whichever you read ebooks on.

i used to have it but could never find anything that really suited, admittedly i only looked at the free offerings.

Georgesgran Thu 26-Jan-23 11:50:55

My apologies too - I don’t kindle, so that’s my excuse.

I get an email from Bookbub everyday, you can go for a few weeks with nothing you want to read then have two or three in a day. Lots are free and others start at 99p. I download them to my kindle but you can access them through the kindle app on your phone or tablet.
