get lost in a good book with Oyster

by ann


Downtime is critical. One of my favorite ways to unwind is losing myself in a good book. The problem is that I ravish books which makes buying them expensive; I love the library but find it a hassle to lug books around. That’s why my interest was piqued when I heard about Oyster!

Oyster is a streaming service for books and offers a diverse selection. I was blown by the various titles I found. For $9.95/month, I have more than 500,00 books available to me. From recent bestsellers to mouthwatering cookbooks, these are good books.

What I’m currently reading is A Tree Grows in Brooklyn.

I’ve already finished- and loved!- The Glass Castle and Brain on Fire, both gripping memoirs.

And, just to give you an idea of the variety available, these books are on my reading list now:
Clean (because I like to explore different food philosophies)
Reykjayik Iceland and Its Surroundings (because my family is going there in March!)
Long Life (because I’m smitten with Mary Oliver)
Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams at Home(’s ice cream)

The best part is that, if the book doesn’t intrigue me, I can just stop reading it and move on!

I used Oyster throughout winter break: on plane rides, while sunning next to the pool and curled up on the sofa. You can use any Apple iOS product (I use my iPad Air) as well as Androids, Nook HD, Kindle Fire and, of course, the web.
