The Infinite Atonement by Tad R. Callister, Jesus the Christ by James E. Talmage, the last 37 Tennis Shoes Among the Nephites books by Christ Heimershwinghofferdingerson – they’re all books you’ve been meaning to read for years now but just haven’t gotten around to. Brothers and Sisters, your ship has come in.
Deseret Bookshelf (App)
Deseret Bookshelf is an app that allows you to download all of your gospel bucket list books right onto your iPhone, Android, Kindle device, etc. It’s basically a Church bookstore in your pocket.
Deseret Bookshelf Plus
BUT WAIT – THERE’S MORE! Reading takes time. Time that you don’t have. You’ve got kids to take to school, family birthdays to remember and a calling to magnify – you’re swamped! Well, Deseret Bookshelf Plus is a service within the app that acts like an all-you-can-eat audiobook cafe (with even more ebooks on the side). Just download the app, sign up, browse hundreds of titles, download the ones you want and enjoy.
You can hit up some hardcore doctrine with audiobooks like Bruce R. McConkie’s Millennial Messiah or take it easy with John Bytheway’s Isaiah For Airheads. The choice is yours.
You can currently choose from an ever-growing selection of over 1,500 ebooks and over 500 audiobooks.
What’s the catch? (Let’s talk $$$)
You get all the ebooks and audiobooks you want for $6.99 a month. That’s less than the price of one meal at Chick-fil-A per month. … OK maybe that was a bad example, Chick-fil-A is necessary to life.
Look at it this way: The average nonfiction paperback book in 2016 would cost you $21.01, according to School Library Journal. So, if you read/listen to at least one book every three months Deseret Bookshelf Plus is a pretty good deal.
Oh, and did I mention there’s a 30-day free trial?
What I’m getting at is that you really have nothing to lose. Sign up for the free trial, sample the service and if you don’t like what you see (or hear) then you can unsubscribe – no strings attached.
