Read reviews of site - the authentic ones are not good. The ones praising it sure have the feel of being fake - there are sites where you can get paid for writing good reviews for a company! You google and see what you think. After I left the site and was doing something else, I get a popup asking me if I needed help or if i wanted to write a review. I had not left my name, email or anything else (except I presume cookies) at the site.

I have ordered several books from this site, some paid for and others free, It seems that the individuals who rate the books as good must be getting paid to do so, or have questionable reading skills. All of the books listed, on the emails that I receive seem to be subpar: I don't think that most of these books would ever get published through a known Publisher,
I have not been able to finish any of the books that I have ordered, because of poor writing and extensive grammatical errors.
I am a reading junkie, and it has to be very bad for me not to finish.
Thank you,

I ordered my 'free' books through Amazon after receiving emails from BookBub. When I got my credit card statement I find not one of the 8 books was free, I was charged a minimum of $3.99. Ripped off!!!

Through iTunes I ordered books for 0,99. Hence my surprise when my credicard showed an amount of 3,99!! When I filed a complaint with iTunes they asked me to prove that the book indeed did cost 0,99 and not 3.99. This looks like a way to enrich themselves!

I love this site! I get an email everyday telling me which books are on sale. I can choose which genre I like best and it will send me notifications of books on sale in that category. the amount of books that are on my ibooks because of this site is astronomical. Absolutely recommend signing up!

Lots of cheap and even free light reading ... mostly fiction with a few autobiographies & "how I became a better person" book. But very few books of substance, and very few with excellent writing. Many of the books would benefit from good editing (some have not had basic proofreading or consistency checking).

There are occasional bargains from experienced skilled authors, and certainly a few well written entertaining new works, but these are the exception. I find too many of these books not worth finishing, and am taking a break from Bookbub to seek out better reading material.

It's definitely a great for readers but I'm just disappointed by the lack of choices. Every book that's discounted or free is not my genre of book reading. BookBub's a great site but I just don't read the kind of books that it offers.

I get an email everyday from BookBub. I have been very pleased with the free books that I select until I selected Shooter written by Dahlia West. The first part of the book was very good and then the rest of the book was filled with sex which I considered pornography. As soon as I got to that part of the book I quit reading the story. It would have been a good book if the author had left the pornography out. I called Nook and they deleted that book from my Nook. I would not want anyone to think I read such trash. Why do some writers think that they have to write trash to get people read their books?

BookBub is like Groupon for ebooks. Every day you get an email with a new discounted book. They do a pretty good job of selecting interesting books, but that's just my taste, I'm not sure if everyone feels that way (although you get a choose a category that you like). The biggest downside is you get a bunch of emails and ebooks are already so cheap or free. There are literally over 40,000 free Kindle books available so I might spend some time reading those or checking them out on my Amazon prime free check-out library.
