 Finds and Deals:

In today’s Gold box Deal on Amazon, there is a large selection (over 450 titles) of books for students for up to 75% off. Categories include programing, history, biography, religion and more. I would take the for students with a grain of salt. While there are many college level texts, if you like reading non-fiction, there are some great finds here! I picked up The Victorian Internet: The Remarkable Story of the Telegraph and the Nineteenth Century’s On-line Pioneers.

The Nook Find of the Day is Emily Sue Harvey’s Space for $1.99.  The bonus deal is Carol Leifer’s How to Succeed in Business Without Really Crying for $3.99.

The Kobo Daily Deal is The Tourist by Olen Steinhauer for $2.99.

Daily Links are interesting links I discover as I go about my online day. The frequency and number of links posted depend upon the daily news. I also post other links of interest on the Google Plus eBook Evangelist Page.
