Freebie flash! Page-a-Day calendars

Freebie flash! Page-a-Day calendars

As usual, I don’t vouch for these books, and none of them block text-to-speech access. As promotional titles, they may not be free for long. Note: these books are free in the USA: prices in other countries may vary.

I love page-a-day calendars! It’s a tradition in my family that we get them at the holidays. Right now, I have two, and my Significant Other has two (one at home and one at work).

There’s something about the precision of just reading one page a day…I don’t ever look ahead. If I go on vacation, I wait until I get back for those pages.

What I don’t like about them? Recycling those pages…and that plastic holder thingie. That’s bothered me for some time.

Well, Andrews McMeel (one of the major companies doing page-a-day) is offering a batch of freebies we are listing in this Freebie Flash.

Is it going to be the same on a Kindle?

No…we don’t even have pages any more. I think we still have days…although I remember proposing a metric time system in high school (ten hours in a day, ten days in a week, that sort of thing). ;)
