Book Deals of the Day

Fatal AffairAll those new e-readers and tablets usually mean that people are looking for content to fill them with. While I don’t generally post book sales, some days there are prices and titles that are too good not to mention. Today is one of those days.

Amazon has several in their Daily Deals today. First, they are offering over 80 romance titles from Harlequin and Carina Press.  For today only, these are $1.99 or less. Available titles include authors like Diana Palmer, Lauren Dane, Brenda Novak, Lynne Graham and B.J. Daniels.

For the Inspirational Daily Deal, there are  over 120 books from Jack Canfield’s Chicken Soup for the Soul series. For today only, these are $1.99 or less at both Amazon and Barnes and Noble. These books contain inspirational true stories that are intended to inspire, comfort and motivate.

The Barnes and Noble Nook Find of the Day is Nora Roberts A Will and a Way for $1.99. And, for a limited time, there is also a nice selection of Disney books (including Frozen) for $3.99 or less.

Kobo’s holiday sale is offering up to 70% off selected e-books and magazines. The Kobo sale offer is valid until January 5, 2015. 🙂

If you are an iBooks fan, Apple has you covered, too. There is a whole list of Bestsellers for $3.99 or less.

Deal of the Day: Walking Dead Books

Walking Dead NovelFor those of you who are looking to fill up those new Kindles and tablets, Amazon’s Bonus Deal of the Day  has some great prices today on Kindle books: they are priced from $1.99 to $2.99. Titles include books by authors such as Jeffery Archer and Sandra Brown, with a few bestsellers in the mix such as Rosemary’s Baby by Ira Levin and Falling Angel by William Hjortsberg (the book that was the basis for the film Angel Heart).

I picked up the Sand Omnibus by Hugh Howey and also found the first books in The Walking Dead series by Robert Kirkman. BTW, these aren’t the comics, these are the new novels exploring the origins of characters in the series.

 

Looking for a eReader deal?

Kindle 2I seem to get quite a few visitors looking for bargains on eReaders, so I thought I would pass these on.

Woot.com frequently has eReaders on sale. Like many of their items, these are refurbished, but the prices are quite reasonable. Today (May 23rd, 2011) there are several deals, probably because Barnes and Noble is scheduled to make a big announcement tomorrow that most experts are guessing will be about a new, improved eReader. Here are today’s deals:

Refurbished second generation Kindle – With 3G for only $89.99 plus $5 shipping

Refurbished Nook at deals.woot.com from dailysteals.com – Original Nook 3G and Wi-fi for only $85.00 plus $5 shipping

You can also find bargain eReaders on eBay. Today’s dailydeal is a brand new Nook Wi-fi for $99.00 with free shipping. Barnes & Noble also sells books, Nooks, the Nook color and various accessories for the Nook in their eBay store.
