Celebrate Boxing Day 2017

What is Boxing Day?

Boxing Day, celebrated mostly by the United Kingdom and Commonwealth nations, is a holiday on the day after Christmas.

I guess you could say I've adopted boxing day because--let's be honest--I sometimes have a problem getting presents sent on time. In fact, when I finish writing this post, I'll be writing my Christmas newsletter for family and friends and addressing Christmas cards. (Maybe I should just call them New Year cards?)

Boxing Day Perfect for Readers

I think this day after Christmas holiday is perfect for readers who want to fill the Kindles received as Christmas gifts. So this post containing bargain book box sets will help you load your Kindle at a rock-bottom price.

Box sets, collection of several novels, novellas, or short stories, usually feature bestselling authors, and the price for the box set is often only $0.99. These sets are designed to introduce new readers to the authors' works. You can be adventuresome and try new genres and authors for very little money.

No Ereader Device Needed But If You Have One...

In this world of ebooks, you don't even need a dedicated device to read a digital book. You can download the Amazon Kindle app and read on a tablet like a Kindle Fire or on your cell phone, laptop, etc.

If you did receive a Kindle as a Christmas present, congratulations! You'll love it. Just load it with dozens of books and drop it in your purse whenever you leave the house. Read something you love while standing in lines, riding as a passenger, or relaxing at home. It's great for reading in bed at night.

What's so great about all these bargain ebooks is that you can give as presents for any special occasion. Give a few of these to your family and friends who read. You can give an ebook even if you don't know the email address your recipient uses on Amazon.

Stay away from those crowded after Christmas sales. Get a nice cup of cocoa or tea--or even a glass of wine--and put your feet up, relax, and let me tell you how easy it is to give an ebook.
