Ebook Inventory

After watching Jean’s video about the books on her Kindle, I thought it might be fun to explore what ebooks I have on the various ebook apps on my phone (not including previews). Let’s just jump right in!

So, years ago when I still used Amazon, I accumulated a few ebooks on the free Kindle app. While most of the books I got were free, I did buy one or two of them (though likely nothing over 99p). Because there are still books on there, I do still have the Kindle app and, ideally, I’d like to finish them all… But, I must confess, I haven’t used this app for years (the most recent of these books was acquired for free almost 3 years ago)… I guess I don’t want to read any of them that badly. ^^;;

Nook (now Sainsbury’s Entertainment)

Currently Reading (or trying…it seems there’s been a massive screw up with the company transferring books so who knows…)

TBR (I’m making plans to drop this unstable platform, so only one for the TBR)




This is mainly used to borrow digital library books (I don’t have any borrowed at the moment, but I did once buy an audiobook from Waterstones and used Overdrive to listen to it. And what was that audiobook?

  • Binti by Nnedi Okorafor



Kobo, Kindle and Nook are/were my most used eReader apps but now, all things considered, I think my favourite is probably Kobo! It would be great to have all my ebooks in one place, but I don’t. Maybe I will slowly whittle down the books across all my apps and just use Kobo for new acquisitions. I’m not sure. (I don’t think I’m anal enough to actually follow through on that, but we’ll see.)

What books do you have on your eReader(s)/apps?
