About Kindle Unlimited

Kindle Unlimited is a lesser known but highly valuable deal in the E-Reader world.

I tested it a few times with the various offers that come up every so often. I finally decided to dive in with this offer and here’s why.

  • Value – If you read just one book a month it’s more than paid for itself. Our average Booklist101 reader reads over 5!
  • 1.4 Million titles – you’re bound to find hundreds of gems in there. If you
  • Audiobooks! – I don’t think this was always a feature in the past but they’ve added a tremendous number of Audible Audiobooks. Using Kindle Unlimted I recently finished the Handmaid’s Tale Audiobook and listened to Simon Pebble’s masterful rendition of 1984 (for the tenth time)
  • You can keep your bookmarks, notes, and highlights even after you cancel

This is one of the best year-long deals I’ve seen in a while. If you’ve tried it before and want to dive in like me, I’d suggest signing up now.

Still not convinced? Give the 30-day risk free trial a go.

Save Money on Textbooks

Here are some other great ways to save money on Textbooks

  1. Buy Used – however be sure to check the stores return policy, so if you end up with too many markings you can get your money back
  2. Rent Textbooks – Amazon is a great option for this, but there’s others as well. Be extra careful with them however, as you’ll need to give the textbooks back in the condition you rented them
  3. Electronic Textbooks – Many publishers have begun to offer e-book versions (like many old industries they were afraid this would hurt their margins and thus moved slowly). Ebooks are not always the best option but if it works for the class you may be able to save quite a bit
  4. Share with a friend – While not always feasible, this can be a great a option. Some may feel it’s not worth the hassle but if, for example, your roommate is taking the same course at a different time this may be a great way for students to save money
  5. Look out for deals – Other retailers like Barnes and Nobles offer great deals throughout the year. Be sure to subscribe to our newsletter and be the first to know about upcoming deals!

Best World War 2 Books



In boyhood, Louis Zamperini was an incorrigible delinquent. As a teenager, he channeled his defiance into running, discovering a prodigious talent that had carried him to the Berlin Olympics. But when World War II began, the athlete became an airman, embarking on a journey that led to a doomed flight on a May afternoon in 1943. When his Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean, against all odds, Zamperini survived, adrift on a foundering life raft. Ahead of Zamperini lay thousands of miles of open ocean, leaping sharks, thirst and starvation, enemy aircraft, and, beyond, a trial even greater. Driven to the limits of endurance, Zamperini would answer desperation with ingenuity; suffering with hope, resolve, and humor; brutality with rebellion. His fate, whether triumph or tragedy, would be suspended on the fraying wire of his will. Get The Audiobook Here

With the Old Breed: At Peleliu and Okinawa

A World War II memoir by Eugene Sledge, a United States Marine. Since its first publication in 1981, With the Old Breed has been recognized as one of the best first-hand accounts of combat in the Pacific during World War II. The memoir is based on notes Sledge kept tucked away in a pocket-sized Bible he carried with him during battles he fought at Peleliu and Okinawa. Get The Audiobook Here

Catch 22

“Catch-22” is like no other novel we have ever read. It has its own style, its own rationale, its own extraordinary character. It moves back and forth from hilarity to horror. It is outrageously funny and strangely affecting. It is totally original. It is set in the closing months of World War II, in an American bomber squadron on a small island off Italy. Its hero is a bombardier named Yossarian, who is frantic and furious because thousands of people he hasn’t even met keep trying to kill him. (He has decided to live forever even if he has to die in the attempt.) Get Catch 22 Here


In August 1942, an overconfident Adolf Hitler would attempt to invade Stalin’s namesake city on the Volga. The battle of Stalingrad is extraordinary in every way: the triumphant invader fought to a standstill; then the Soviet trap sprung, surrounding their attackers; and the terrible siege, with Germans starving and freezing, forced to fight on by a disbelieving Hitler. Now Antony Beevor tells the story as it has never been told before, recounting the strategic brilliance and fatal flaws of the notorious generals, while telling the incredible tale from a soldier’s-eye view. The author incorporates Russian reports on desertions and executions that have never been seen by Western scholars, German transcripts of prisoner interrogations, and private letters and diaries to re-create the human drama of the most terrible battle in modern warfare.

Band of Brothers

They fought on Utah Beach, in Arnhem, Bastogne, the Bulge; they spearheaded the Rhine offensive and took possession of Hitler’s Eagle’s Nest in Berchtesgaden. Easy Company, 506th Airborne Division, U.S. Army, was as good a rifle company as any in the world. From their rigorous training in Georgia in 1942 to D-Day and victory, Ambrose tells the story of this remarkable company, which kept getting the tough assignments. Easy Company was responsible for everything from parachuting into France early D-Day morning to the capture of Hitler’s Eagle’s Nest at Berchtesgaden. BAND OF BROTHERS is the account of the men of this remarkable unit who fought, went hungry, froze, and died, a company that took 150 percent casualties and considered the Purple Heart a badge of office. Drawing on hours of interviews with survivors as well as the soldiers’ journals and letters, Stephen Ambrose tells the stories, often in the men’s own words, of these American heroes.
