I was one of the many who received a Kindle for Christmas and one of the first books I downloaded was Linda Lewis’ new book How To Make £10 in Ten Minutes. Linda is a prolific Womag writer, competition judge, columnist etc.
Her book is short and to the point. It gives useful advice on how to find the material that the weekly women’s magazines (and to a lesser extent other publications) thrive on. For instance, lots of magazines pay for Tips that either save money or make life easier – but how do you find tips to submit? Linda explains.
I was tempted by the book because you can download the first chapter for free, which I did. After reading it, I decided it was worth paying 89p to read the rest. Now all I need is one successful submission following Linda’s advice and I’ll be quids in!
By the way, did anyone else see the bit in the news that said around 20% of those who received a Kindle for Christmas haven’t used it? In contrast, only 9% of iPads have remained unused – probably because you don’t buy someone an iPad ‘on spec’. If I was spending all that money I’d want to be sure that it was something the recipient actually wanted!
Can you guess what the most unused present was? Smellies and toiletries.

Thanks for that, Sally, I’ve downloaded Linda’s book to my iPad – as you say, it’s worth the 89p many times over. Can’t believe so many new Kindle owners haven’t downloaded any books yet – I’m rapidly becoming addicted!

Hi Wightrabbit – maybe we’ll both get rich sending in fillers, and then squander the money on e-books!
