If you’ve got any of the subscription services like Scribd, Kindle Unlimited, or the super-sexy Canadians Only Kobo Plus, I want to know what your latest favorite is!

And this doesn’t mean only the paid subscriptions. Library folks may also be using Hoopla Digital to access ebooks and audiobooks, and services like Kanopy to watch scripted series and documentaries.

The Library Extension browser add-on allows folks browsing Amazon to see what books are available at their library, or via library subscriptions like Hoopla. (I use this extension constantly and I love it.)

My latest happy find is the number of cookbooks, quilting pattern books, and cross stitch books inside Hoopla and sometimes KU. I love trying cookbooks out via library lending (usually in print) but I freaking love finding new quilt pattern books to browse through.

Craft-focused books like pattern collections and how-to guides can be expensive, and I really like digital browsing before I buy or borrow. I made a quilt from a quilt pattern book I found on Hoopla called Quilting With a Modern Slant, and this quilt is one of my favorites.

Wanna see?

Zeb approves of this quilt, too.

I’m always (always) looking for fiction and nonfiction inside the subscriptions I have, so I’d love to know what you’ve discovered that you absolutely freaking loved!

Which subscription services are you using? And what books, audiobooks, or other romance reading have you discovered recently in your subscription that you’d recommend to others? If you can also tell us what genre the book is, that would help a lot for those who like to CTRL-F their rec threads.

So, please share! What recent treasures have you discovered?
