I'm super excited to be able to tell you about Deseret Bookshelf's newest feature, Plus. I actually first heard about plus coming six months ago at Deseret Book's ladies night. I thought it sounded pretty great and now that I've tried it, I think it's even better than it sounded. It's basically a subscription that you add on top of the Deseret Bookshelf App. If you have Deseret Book's Platinum membership, you pay only $6.99 a month or $69 a year. If you don't it's $9.99 a month or $99 a year. Either way that's a really good deal for what you are going to be getting.
Here's the deal. With plus, you get to listen to all of their audiobooks...for FREE! Something I noticed on this is that you get to listen to even the newest books that are just barely in the store for FREE. I love this! Who has the time to run to the store to grab the book the very day it comes out? Not me, I'm too busy chasing kids around to do that!
Not to mention - have you seen the cost of audio books?! I just looked at the price on one and it's $27.99 on sale for $17.99. Crazy! At that rate, Bookshelf Plus pays for itself really quickly.
I will admit that I read more books than I listen to, but I had a lot of fun listening to Hank Smith's Be Happy as I was driving to pick up kids one day. It made it a lot easier to get through the book I was working on when I was able to listen during a time I normally would not be able to do anything. I know there are tons of you out there who only listen to audio books.
And there are 1500 e-books on this app that you can read for FREE as well. Not necessarily the newest ones, but there are some fun ones.
Some of the books that I saw that I'm interested in reading/listening to are:
The Tennis Shoes series (can't wait to introduce my kids to these!)
Josie Kilpack's Culinary mystery series (LOVE these!)
Broken Things to Mend by Jeffrey R Holland (LOVE him!)
No Ordinary Women by Elaine S Dalton
The Orphan Keeper by Camron Wright (loved the voice on this one!)
Dragonwatch by Brandon Mull
Anything by Gerald Lund
Anything by Sheri Dew
Anything by Sarah Eden
I might have a small book problem!
Anyway...I really enjoyed my trial of this one. You too can get a free 30 day trial. Start by making sure you've downloaded the app either in the App store or Google Play.
