Just a quick note to those of you who subscribe to Gospel eBooks by email. Over the last month while we’ve noticed some issues with Feedburner (the service that delivers our posts by email). On some days certain deals have been not included and have instead been posted the next day. Other posts don’t get included at all.
As a temporary fix, if you notice less than 6 posts on our daily email you should check our site directly at www.gospelebooks.net to ensure you haven’t missed a deal. We’ll be switching e-mail services very soon and hope to have a smooth uninterrupted transition.
Today we celebrate our 3rd birthday! On Oct 19 2010 we launched as the Twitter account @freeonkindle. A few months later we expanded to a full website under the name Gospel eBooks. Each year that goes by, the site continues to grow and for that, we are grateful. We want to thank you for making Gospel eBooks your place to find discount Christian e-books. We’re in it for the long haul!

We believe in the power and importance of reading. We are passionate about books. Books convey knowledge, spread ideas, and can transport you into alternate lives and worlds. It’s why we’re working so hard to help people read more and get more out of reading.
Today we’re excited to announce another milestone in our journey—the all-new Kindle Paperwhite.
The new Paperwhite is our best ever, with a new higher contrast display, the next generation of our built-in light, a powerful new processor, and the latest touchscreen technology.
We’ve also added new reading features like Page Flip—skim books page-by-page, or skip through chapters without losing your place. We’ve integrated Goodreads—the world’s largest community of book lovers—so you can connect with like-minded readers, share recommendations and decide what to read next, straight from your book. Our new Vocabulary Builder automatically compiles words you look up in the dictionary into easy-to-use flashcards. And for parents, Kindle FreeTime offers a simple, engaging new way to encourage and reward kids’ reading.
Kindle is the best-selling e-reader in the world for six years running. No one is investing on behalf of readers or pushing the boundaries of hardware, software, and content for readers like the Kindle team. We continue to invest not only in new hardware like the new Kindle Paperwhite, but also in new features and benefits that make Kindle a superior service: Kindle MatchBook, Kindle Owners’ Lending Library, over 400,000 books that are exclusive to the Kindle Store, Kindle Singles, Kindle Worlds, and many more.
We hope you enjoy the new Kindle Paperwhite. Happy reading,
Founder & CEO

He is the author of You Are A Writer, Wrecked and The In-Between. He lives just outside of Nashville, TN with his wife, Ashely and their son and dog.

In the past few years I’ve had the honor of watching Jeff Goins transition from a writer into a thought leader and one of the most exciting next generation voices. In this book, you’ll see why and perhaps even more importantly how he did it.
Jon Acuff, New York Times Bestselling author of Start
I’m not good at waiting. I’m a traveler, I’m trying to get somewhere, and the “waiting” gets in my way. Then my friend Jeff emails me his new book, The In-Between. I began reading it on a flight in-between Tennessee and Texas, in-between one concert and the next, in-between busy and busier. Jeff has inspired me to see the value in what takes place in my life not only at point A and point B, but in the space where there doesn’t seem to be a point. Jeff Goins wrote this book for me, and for anyone else who needs to embrace the waiting and exist in the in-between.
