Nothing new here, move along
on February 14, 2012
I used to love this newsletter. I would wait every morning for it to arrive, and found lots of good books to download over the last several months. Then, the same friend who told me about this blog told me about eReaderIQ, another daily newsletter of selected new free books for the Kindle. I subscribed, and the next day my new eReaderIQ newsletter arrived at 5 am with about 12-15 great recommendations, and 2-3 hours later the "Free Kindle Books and Tips" newsletter arrived - 5 reviews, all of them the exact same books that had been covered in the other newsletter several hours earlier. Wow, I thought, strange coincidence, since there were over 700 new free books that day. The next day, the same thing - 4 reviews here, 3 of them exactly the same as the other newsletter which had arrived hours earlier. The third day was this morning. 605 new free books today in the US store - 5 books covered in this newsletter, 4 of them repeats from eReaderIQ.
Too much coincidence for me - if I'm going to pay for a subscription, I expect it to be a little more original than a re-hash from another newsletter - especially when that one is free.
