After receiving my Kindle Fire for Christmas, I found the Pixel of Ink website. I have been downloading free books every day. This is great! Even the ones that are not free are so very reasonable in cost. You can't afford to be without it. My New Year will be so much fuller because of the wonderful books I can download through Pixel of Ink. Thank you.

I have enjoyed the books from authors that I have never heard of. Getting some of them free is a great deal. Thank you very much. I recommend this site to many people that have kindles & nooks. I'm currently looking for the help to read on my kindle.

Pixel of Ink….I'm addicted! A good addiction though….thanks for all the great reading material and all the extra cash I'm saving!

I am in mad love with this site. I've found myself stepping outside of my usual reading circle of authors and discovering new ones. "The Mill River Recluse" was one of my freebies and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I also read "The Color of Heaven" and was moved to tears.
I love how I can just pick up something for free, or low-cost. Keep up the great work!

Reply

John McCullough January 15, 2012 at 12:07 pm

I highly recommend Suzanne Collins' "The Hunger Games". It's one of the best books I've read in quiet some time. I'm looking forward to reading the second installment of the trilogy.

Enjoy all the free books and array of genre. I now read books that I thought of no interest, if borrowing from a library would not have wasted my time. Love my Kindle 3G and Kindle Fire!
