Reading and Listening While Social Distancing!

Free eBooks and audio books below!

I'm doing things a bit differently today. I want to encourage my readers during this topsy-turvy time. I hope my book related photos and these free and discounted books will be a source of comfort. All photos are my own. The first two reading rooms are from coffee shop restaurants.

Do you read eBooks are do you prefer them in print? With everyone being encouraged to stay away, this is the best time to give eBooks a try if you haven't already.


Two of my favorite sites that offer free and discounted eBooks daily are BookBub and My Book Cave. To download the Kindle books that I want onto my tablet, I use a free app. You can download these free apps to read Kindle books anywhere.


Amazon has put together a free selection of audio books while schools are out, handpicked by their editors for kids of all ages. All free. No sign ups. No commitments. You can find them here on Audible.

Social Distancing

The other day, I wrote "A Faith-Based Approach to the Coronavirus" on Real Church Life after noticing some Christians behaving in a counter-productive way regarding their faith and the coronavirus. These people want to use their faith to carry on as normal and don't want to have their movements restricted. God is practical and He gave practical instructions regarding contaminants and contagious diseases in the time of Moses. Modern medicine took a long time to catch up to what God was saying way back then.

While practicing social distancing on this Sunday, our family watched two church services (one of them was a live broadcast) from the safety of our home in South Africa. We also joined in on the World Day of Prayer to pray for the world during this difficult time.

"When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command locusts to devour the land or send a plague among my people, if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land" (2 Chronicles 7:13&14 NIV).
