Deseret Bookshelf Plus Review

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

  1. Thanks for sharing about this! I think I'll give it a try. I like reading fiction but I want to try audio for nonfiction.

Favorite Friday - Book Launch for Piper Pepper The Garden Sprite

I like to go to book launch parties! It's really fun to be able to meet the author of a book you've enjoyed reading and be able to talk to them just a little bit. I've had a ton of fun doing that. And I've met some really AMAZING people too! 

And I also like children's books, so I'm really excited to tell you about, not only a launch party coming up in Lehi next week, but about the book that will be launching.

About the book: Meet Piper and her three toad brothers in this first book of the series as they hop and fly around Piper's Garden. Piper loves her garden, with its petunias, violets and bell peppers. What Piper has a hard time with is her three toad brothers. They set traps, eat her food and race past her and through her garden. Will Piper be able to put that all aside when her brothers need her help? Piper Pepper the Garden Sprite is set in beautiful Alberta, Canada. With the Rockies and vast prairies as the backdrop, Piper helps us to see the sometime…

SeaQuest Aquarium Giveaway

For this week's Friday Favorite (I's only Wednesday!) I want to tell you about something new that I got to try out just last week. It's the SeaQuest Aquarium located in the Layton Hills Mall in Layton. 

This is a pretty new thing, it actually just opened in November. It's new, it's beautiful and there really is nothing like it located in Davis County. And actually, the way that it's been set up there isn't a whole lot like it out there. You see, it's not just an aquarium, it's really an interactive experience. There are only a few exhibits in the whole aquarium that have animals in them that you can't/shouldn't interact with. Those exhibits have high walls on them so you really can't interact with them anyway. Everything else has low walls. You can touch, feed, examine pretty much anything you see here. That makes it so much more than an aquarium.

I love the way it's set up in areas. Each of the rooms has a different and fun …
