Kindle Book Recommendations

I just got a kindle and was wondering if anyone had any good dog training, golden retriever breed, conformation showing, raw feeding books they'd recommend. I'm excited to be able to easily access a ton of books to better take care of my pups. This is definitely only going to make me more obsessed with my furbabies

I have a kindle and I love it!!!!! Do you have Amazon prime? To me it is worth the extra price for free shipping. I don't have any book suggestions as I am just starting to look at books as well. I'll be checking back to see what others have suggested. Do you currently feed raw? (Sorry, I'm somewhat new so if this is something you talk about a lot forgive me!)

I do have amazon prime, its so awesome! I love how overnight shipping is only like 4 dollars, so hopefully my kindle will be here tomorrow! I haven't started feeding raw yet because I don't feel like I have enough knowledge yet, but I'm definitely going to make the switch. A couple of books I'm going to be getting for my kindle on raw feeding are:
http://www.amazon.com/Raw-Dog-Food-Make-Easy/dp/1929242093/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_topand
http://www.amazon.com/Natural-Nutrition-Dogs-Kymythy-Schultze/dp/1561706361/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top
I've noticed how big a difference feeding quality food can have on dogs. Me and my bf started our dogs on blue wilderness which they did really well on (besides somewhat loose poops and gas) and then decided to try Innova because I heard good things about that brand as well and it was little cheaper. Now their coats are getting dry and dull . This got me into researching raw diets and I'm hoping making the switch will improve my pups' health and bring back their shiny soft coats. I'm planning on showing one of my pups and I've heard that feeding a raw diet really helps with appearance and energy as well.

Can't wait to hear suggestions from fellow memers

Make sure you check your local library's website to see if they do kindle book loans. I rarely pay for books, because so many are available through my library.

Yep...I get most of my books through my library. If I ever buy it's usually on their daily deal.

And doesn't Kindle let you share books? Or is that Nook? I don't have either...

I do borrow from the library, however.

You can share a book with one other person for a certain tine period. I use both pixelofink.com and bookbub.com to find deals. Also goodreads.com is a great pace to keep track if the books you have read or want to read. Before I but a book I usually look at reviews there. ( if you are buying an actual book and not a book on a reader you can even use your smart phone to scan the bar code of the book to get reviews!) goodreads also gives links to the different places to buy both ereader versions and regular versions.
