An {honest} Frugal Update…

Where has the time gone? Ah, life.

I apologize for not providing a heads up before the all of the books, giveaways, and interviews stopped ~ that wasn’t fair to the authors or the readers ~ but I thought it was only going to be for a couple weeks at the end of the year (and here we are in March!).

Although I loved running The Frugal eReader, I simply needed a break. I needed to sleep in until at least 6am and I needed to spend more time with my husband. :)  My full time career as a Marketing Manager required more from me towards the end of the year and I started a second business which I am also in love with (Paperlaced – A Rustic Chic Paper Boutique). This site demanded more of my time than I was able to dedicate to it – it’s a very hands on business that starts early and ends late each day.

I miss the interaction, but I honestly can’t say when I’ll be back. I may begin posting over Facebook so I can start connecting with everyone again!

I’m considering having someone take over the lead on the site. If you know of anyone who may be interested, or if you have any questions (or just want to say hi!) please reach out to me at etrubrown (at) thefrugalereader (dot) com.

I hope you’re still eReading frugally! :)

Sincerely,

Elizabeth

Don’t worry, I’ll be back on Sunday with new Frugal Finds, and of course, a giveaway!

Celebrating TFeR’s 1 Year Anniversary! {A Gift Every August Day ~ Day #1!} {Day #1 Winner Chosen}

August is The Frugal eReader’s one year anniversary! Can you believe it? It’s been 365 days with hundreds more Frugal Finds Under Nine! I’ve enjoyed running the site so much, and getting so involved with both the reader and author community centered around the fabulous Kindle. So, we’re going to celebrate with a gifted Frugal Find each and every day this month!

Every day in August, an Anniversary Celebration post will go up on the site at a random time {This is the first one!}. When the post goes live, search around the site for a Frugal Find that you would love to read. Then, come back and leave a comment on the Anniversary Celebration blog post with the title and author of that book for a chance to win it! A Frugal Find will be given away to a reader every day!

PLUS!: There will be an extra giveaway in two of the Anniversary Celebration posts for $50 Amazon eGift Cards, so be sure not to miss any of the posts!

Here are the guidelines!

  • Every day {starting today}, search around the site using the categories, tags, and/or  ”previous page” link {or your memory!} to find a Frugal Find Under Nine that you’ve been wanting to read and want to win!
  • Come back to the Anniversary Celebration post, and leave a comment with the tittle and author of the novel you would like to win!
  • For eligibility, you must do one of the following in addition to commenting {let me know which you’ve done in the comment}:

“Like” the Anniversary Celebration post {Via the Facebook like button in the post}

“Tweet” the Anniversary Celebration post {Via the Tweet button in the post}

“Share” the Anniversary Celebration post {Via any social site using the share button in the post}

“+ 1″ the Anniversary Celebration post {Via the Google + button in the post}

  • Each giveaway expires at midnight on that day, and a winner will be randomly chosen and listed each following morning. Check out the link to the right of the blog for a list of winners.
  • You may choose a different book each and every day!

Hope you enjoy this special celebration month, and thank you for being a part of it!

This is the first Anniversary Celebration post, so comment with your chosen Frugal Finds!! {For easy searching, open the site in a new window here!}

New CA Law & The Frugal eReader

Hi Frugal eReaders,

Due to new California Law passed last week, Amazon made the decision to immediately terminate all of their California Affiliates {You can read an article on it here}. This new law directly affects The Frugal eReader, and the site no longer earns commissions from purchases made on Amazon through the links provided.

I want to share that in spite of this, I will continue to work hard to bring you Frugal Finds Under Nine each and every day. I thoroughly enjoy running this site and being a part of this community.

Let us continue to read frugally on our Kindles!

 

Elizabeth Currently on Vacation until Wednesday, 5/18/11

I hope everyone is enjoying their Frugal Freebie Wednesday today! This is a note to let you know that I am going to be on vacation starting tomorrow {5/12} until next Wednesday {5/18}. We’re off to Kauai celebrate our one-year wedding anniversary!

 

During this time there won’t be any new Frugal Finds posted until I return {just in time for more Frugal Freebies!}. Although, I encourage you to peruse the site via the categories to discover some you may have missed along the way.

I hope you have a fabulous week, and I’ll be back next Wednesday to continue discovering Frugal Finds Under Nine for the Kindle!

PS ~ For curious minds, the photo in this post was taken in Turks & Caicos on our honeymoon last year {simply blissful}.  :)
