If you have an eReader, or even if you just like to read eBooks on your computer or other Internet device, it can be difficult to know how to find new reading material. For many avid readers, it’s a great feeling to have multiple eBooks loaded onto your eReader at any given time, so that you know you won’t be without great reading material any time soon. These are some tips to help you find great eBooks, whether you want to find premium reading material or you want to enjoy your hobby without spending a lot of money.

 

Getting Recommendations

One of the best features of eReaders is that once you have signed into your account with whatever provider produced your eReader, your eReader will keep track of what you have read and recommend books to you based on your previous reading history. You can take advantage of this function by downloading samples of these books, which will allow you to read the first chapter or two before you pay for the whole book. You’re likely to find that the recommendations are often very accurate and that you end up purchasing many of the books listed on your eReader’s recommendation page. Another great way to find books similar to those you have already read and enjoyed is to check message boards online about eBooks. Simply searching for books similar to the title of one you liked will often yield great discussions from other readers with recommendations on what to read next.

 

Getting Bargains

If you read a lot of eBooks, the hobby can get expensive. To find reading material that will cost you very little, or even no money, try reading self-published eBooks. These are often not available in print format, but are only available to people with eReaders, and they often cost much less than professionally published eBooks. You can often download books for free by browsing the titles connected to self-published eBooks on your eReader. You can also find books that are very inexpensive, as these authors avoid overhead costs by publishing themselves. They often offer them for free so that they can get reviews and sell the books for a profit later, so try to find them during their initial release stage. You can also download applications to your eReader that will help you stay up to date with special deals on certain eBooks that are free or on sale for a limited period of time. Another way to get great bargains on eBooks is to pre-order them before their release date. Most booksellers offer a locked-in price for these books, so that you pay the lowest price available up until the release date. Often, ordering early can save you money, plus the book will automatically download to your eReader the moment it is released.

 

When you have read all the books on your to-read list for the time period, it can be disappointing to run out of reading material. But with some great recommendations and by branching out into new types of eBooks, like those that are self-published, you can soon restock your eReader with plenty of new eBooks.
