It’s ILMK’s 7th birthday…and I’m celebrating with a giveaway!
August 28, 2009: the I Love My Kindle blog begins with this post:
Seven years…and they said our relationship wouldn’t last! 😉
Every year, I’m more amazed by the impact that this blog has…both when I hear things from readers, and when readers say things which impact me. It’s definitely a two-way street. I love it best when commenters respectfully disagree with me…I learn new things that way, and/or get a deeper insight into my own thoughts.
Thank you to my commenters!
This blog would not be what it is (one of the most popular blogs of any kind in the Kindle store), and I wouldn’t be what I am, without them.
Thanks also go to those who subscribe through the Kindle store…that’s part of what it makes it possible for me to devote this much time and energy to writing I Love My Kindle! Thanks, subscribers!
More thanks to people who follow links on this blog…it may be to buy something from Amazon (including gift cards) or to be exposed to something I’ve suggested. The latter lets me help out people and organizations I find interesting.
Let me also thank those of you who read the blog, but haven’t yet followed a link or subscribed. You never have to do either to be part of the energy that feeds this galloping Pegasus of literary pixels!😉
In order to make my thanks a bit more tangible, I’ve made as many of my Kindle store books free as I could for August 28th!
Please check that a title is free for you before buying it.
I have asked Amazon to make them free on August 28, but I can’t say exactly when it will happen. I think they may also only be free to customers in the USA.
So, you can click on the titles before, but please make sure it is free when you click the 1-click buy button.
When this one was first published in December of 2012, it was the number one bestselling book of quotations at Amazon…including paper! That didn’t last long, but it was fun while it did.
This one has been a bestseller. It was written before the Kindle Fire HDs and HDXs, so it doesn’t match up exactly with those. If you do have the first generation Fire, though, I think you’ll find it useful.
This one combines the three below into one volume:
* ILMK! (I Love My Kindle): Being an Appreciation of Amazon’s E-Book Reader, with Tips, Explanations, and Humor
* Free Books for Your Kindle
* Frequently Asked Kindle Questions
This has some fun stuff…and other things that are out of date. If you want The Happy Little Bookworm, this one has it.
This is the first 101 posts in this blog. I did 101 posts so I wouldn’t cut off Doctor Watson’s Blog: A Kindle Abandoned (which is a four-part story). I’m coming up on the five year anniversary of the blog, and I’m considering doing a “best of” book. I’d include the posts that are less time-dependent, I think…if you have any opinions on ones that you remember, feel free to let me know.
Remember, double-check that they are free to make sure before buying. Since they are also in Kindle Unlimited, you may see a zero price showing, but it won’t be zero near the Buy button.

* I am linking to the same thing at the regular Amazon site, and at AmazonSmile. When you shop at AmazonSmile, half a percent of your purchase price on eligible items goes to a non-profit you choose. It will feel just like shopping at Amazon: you’ll be using your same account. The one thing for you that is different is that you pick a non-profit the first time you go (which you can change whenever you want)…and the good feeling you’ll get. Shop ’til you help! By the way, it’s been interesting lately to see Amazon remind me to “start at AmazonSmile” if I check a link on the original Amazon site. I do buy from AmazonSmile, but I have a lot of stored links I use to check for things.
