Kobo Coupon Code: 30% Off Select eBooks

Kobo has released a 30% off coupon code on select eBooks this weekend. Dig into something new this summer and experience another world.

Click here to shop select books @ Kobo Canada now

  • Coupon Code: VACATION30
  • Discount: 30% off
  • Expiry: 21st July 2014

The books included in this offer are through the above link. Remember to click the “browse more…” links besides each category name so you can see all the books in the specific category that qualify for this coupon code. It is not just the few books they show you as an example. If you are just browsing the website, make sure “Items Eligible For Promo Codes” is checked off in whichever section you are in as that option narrows your book choices down to eBooks this coupon will work on.

The categories in the sale include:

  • Fiction
  • Mystery
  • Kids’ and Teen Titles
  • Non-fiction

Out of those four categories, my favourite is mystery. I have been a mystery reader since I was young and first read the complete Sherlock Holmes stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

I generally judge my mystery books by their names. This book Darwins Nightmare by Mike Knowles sounds like a pretty funky mystery about a man who does very bad stuff for a living and then makes one mistake (or good deed, your choice) and the repercussions of that event. The book currently costs $9.34 but after coupon, it comes down to $6.54.

Walking into the Ocean by David Whellams is a British mystery that sounds right up my alley. After all, most my favourite mysteries have been British like Sherlock and Miss Marple. This book is to be the first in a set of three books about a veteran Scotland Yard Chief Inspector investigating serial killings in the pastoral lands of good ol’ England. The book retails for $7.18, but after coupon code, it comes down to $5.03.

There are many books to choose from, and it is always fun finding a new favourite author or a series you just cannot put down. Sure, there are the sleepless nights where you are up to 3am hovered over your eReader, but it is all worth it. This summer I joined Goodreads and I am keeping track of all the books I have read from now on. It is a nice way to look back and see what I have read and what I thought of it.

For this and any future Kobo coupon codes, always check our forum.

Free eBook of your choice from Entitle Books!

Posted by on July 5, 2014 at 8:00 AM

Free eBook of your choice from Entitle Books!

Entitle Books hasn’t yet been mentioned on Bargainmoose, but I wanted to tell you about their free trial offer in which you can download a free eBook, no strings attached!

In the free seven day trial, you are entitled to download one eBook for free, and it’s yours forever. You can download it to your device (tablet or phone, etc.) and it’s stored there. In order to sign up to the free seven day trial you have to enter your credit card details. If you do not cancel within seven days, you will move on to the subscription plan which costs $9.99 per month. If you only want to get the free book, remember to cancel within seven days.

Here are a few examples of the eBooks you can choose from, across some different genres:

Best Sellers & New Releases

  • Stephen Hunter – Sniper’s Honor
  • Gail McHugh – Pulse
  • Steve Jobs autobiography

Sci Fi / Fantasy

  • Michael Crichton – Next
  • Robin Hobb – Dragon Haven
  • Jack McDevitt – Infinity Beach

Classics

  • George Orwell – Animal Farm
  • Joseph Heller – Catch 22
  • Gary Paulsen Hatchet – (I remember reading this as a teenager, it’s good)

I had a browse of the selection of eBooks on Entitlebooks.com and I’ll admit, it’s not huge. There are more than 200,000 books to choose from and that’s a large number of books, but that’s across many genres and types. I looked in the sci-fi and fantasy section which I would be very au fait with, and while there were a number of good titles, the selection wasn’t amazing – only 32 books!

Even so, this is a very handy offer for one free eBook. I’ve downloaded a big juicy Stephen King book and I’m going to be reading it on my iPad when travelling for my vacation next week.

After the free trial on Entitle Books, you’re subscribed to their monthly plan, any two books for $9.99 per month. To be honest, that’s actually still a very good price – being able to download two full size eBooks for only $5 each. And the fact that you can cancel the plan at any time and keep the books is a real bonus. I am going to read this Stephen King book, see how much I like the actual app, and then I will be considering going on to the monthly plan for a few months and saving a few more books from their library.

Humble Bundle: Pay What You Want For Games, Software & Books

Posted by on June 5, 2014 at 7:30 PM

Humble Bundle: Pay What You Want For Games, Software & Books

Most of you have heard of the Humble Bundle: it is a bundle of games that you “pay what you want” for. Usually the base tier you can throw as little as $1 at and get several games. There is also at-least another tier above that, that gets unlocked when you donate certain amounts of money. Usually the minimums are ridiculously low and you are getting way beyond what you paid for.

What makes the Humble Bundle great beyond a deal-hunter’s perspective is that part of the money goes to the developers and part goes to charity. When you buy your Humble Bundle, you get to choose what the split is. Do you want all your money going to charity? How about a 50/50 split?

Now, you may be saying I totally know all of this already so why are we revisiting this? I am here to tell you that the humble Humble Bundle has expanded. No longer is it just a simple bundle of games you can pick up on the cheap, there is now three separate humble bundles you can acquire at the same time.

The Humble Bundle

This is the original Humble Bundle: a two-tier bundle made up of loosely knit together games. Pay what you want for the first tier of games (minimum $1 if you want to redeem on Steam). You can unlock the second tier by paying over the current average price that people are paying for the bundle. This week you can get Symphony, Draw a Stickman: EPIC, and Galcon: Legends for whatever you want to throw at it. Unlock seven more games when you pay over the average donation amount (currently at $4.91). The total bundle value is $164.

The Humble Weekly Bundle

The Humble Weekly Bundle operates on a three-tier system most the time and is themed by country, title, developer, theme, etc. This week’s theme is German developers. The base tier is pay what you want, the second tier is either pay more than the current average price or can be pay more than a set price. The third tier is always a set price. This week you will get seven games when you pay whatever you want, an extra three games when you pay above the current going rate 9currently $3.65), and the top tier games are unlocked when you pay $9 or more. The total bundle value is $174.

The Humble Book Bundle

The Humble Book Bundle is a new development. It is just like the weekly bundle, just with books. For avid book lovers, this bundle is a god-sent. Currently you can pay what you want for three books, get another eight books when you pay the going rate or higher (currently $9.68) and then you unlock the upper tier two books when you pay $10 or more. I have to say Lovecraft’s Monsters: Anthology looks tempting. The total bundle value is $76.

Although Kobo Books usually only releases discounts on lesser known eBooks, this time around, they’re offering an additional 30% on select bestsellers, all of which have already been reduced in price!

There are plenty more very known titles available but here are just some that stood out to me at a quick glance:

Now, if you haven’t yet seen Mockingjay, the second movie in the Hunger Games trilogy, then you’re definitely missing out on some great action. Not only should you hurry to the nearest movie theater to see it, but I also suggest you read the books first for the uniqueness of the story, which offers a fast-paced and interesting look into a post-apocalyptic scenario that essentially pits children against each other in a Mortal Kombat kind of way.

My Story Doctor: Get David Farland’s NaNoWriMi Inspirations eBook Full of Writing Tips for Free!

Posted by on April 4, 2014 at 5:30 PM

My Story Doctor: Get David Farlands NaNoWriMi Inspirations eBook Full of Writing Tips for Free!

Let a pro keep you motivated while you NaNoWriMo or any time!

Depending on if you are a Sci Fi person or a Fantasy person you may know David Farland also as Dave Wolverton. He goes by both depending on what genre he is writing. For this book he’s using Farland.

So who is this guy? Well, he’s best know in the writing world for his Runelord series but he has written a lot of books all of which you can read about on The Book of Knowledge, Wikipedia. I’ve never read any of his books but on of my favourite authors, Brandon Sanderson, took a writing course from Farland and said that that one course was more important to his writing career than everything else he did on his way to a Master’s Degree in English. Sanderson writes my favourite books and if Farland made him in to the writer he is today, well, I’m all in.

Farland offers online and in-person writing workshops via MyStoryDoctor but for the people who can’t get to Utah or don’t want to lay down the hundreds of dollars to get some help from him, you can get a copy of his NaNoWriMo Inspirations book. It sells for $2.99 but if you sign up to the My Story Doctor website, you can get it in ePub or Kindle format for free. Just sign up, sign in and click on the Free Stuff link up at the top to download it.

The book is meant to give you a new lesson each day of NaNoWriMo to keep you writing. NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month and it takes place in November each year. Basically you take a month and write a full novel. Farland’s lessons for the first four days of NaNoWriMo are:

  • Day 1: Be Your Own Inspiration
  • Day 2: Staying Motivated
  • Day 3: Plotting a Story
  • Day 4: Thinking About Your Setting

(Expires: Never but free book may change)

Amazon Canada Freebie: Free Recipe Books For Kindle eReader & Apps

Posted by on April 1, 2014 at 2:30 PM

Amazon Canada Freebie: Free Recipe Books For Kindle eReader & Apps

Do you have a Kindle eReader or the Kindle app? Then today is your lucky day (assuming no one’s pulled a prank on you yet) because for a limited time, you can get hundreds of cooking eBooks on Amazon Canada for absolutely free. That’s right: hundreds, if not thousands!

This is a particularly incredible freebie because you don’t even have to have the Amazon Kindle eReader to get all of the cooking eBooks for free. Simply download the Kindle app to your PC, iPhone, iPad or Android phone, then log into your Amazon account (and if you don’t have one, then it’s free to get one) and you can then go back to clicking the link above to download all of your books.

I experimented by getting the Kindle app on my iPhone and once I went back to the link and clicked on an eBook, the right-hand side of the page displayed an orage button with the text: “buy now with 1-click” with a drop-drop box giving me the choice to send it to my phone. But since the price of the cookbooks is currently at $0.00, I really didn’t end up buying anything at all!

Considering the extra-large assortment of available cookbooks, I would definitely recommend sorting them by the categories that interest you the most from the left-hand side menu. You can pick from sections like: dieteary, low fat, holiday cookbooks, etc. Just keep in mind that you have to stick to cooking-related categories for free eBooks.

Do you cook? Share with us your favourite recipe in the comments section!

Kobobooks: Up to 70% Off Books for Teens & Kids

Posted by on March 5, 2014 at 10:30 PM

Kobobooks: Up to 70% Off Books for Teens & Kids

Kobobooks Canada is offering up to 70% off digital books for teens and kids.

You can get up to 70% off teen ebooks all month long. Some books are discounted even more than that. I found this book called Dr. Bird’s Advice for Sad Poets by Evan Roskos. The book was a 2014 Morris Award finalist and is the story of a boy dealing with an abusive father, a self-destructive sister, and working through his own anxiety and depression all the while channeling the famous poet Walt Whitman. Originally $18.99, the book is on sale for a really inexpensive $1.99.

Get up to 70% off kid ebooks as well. The Judy Moody was in a mood book costs only $1.99. Oddly enough they don’t have the starting price for the book on Kobo, but I looked it up on Amazon and it costs $6.65 there. This is a great introduction to the Judy Moody series and a pretty inexpensive way to try out something new. In the book, Judy is going in to third grade and must face the changes and the exciting new challenges about to come her way.

Check out these titles and more during the sale.

Sony Reader Store Coupon Code: 30% Off One eBook

Although the Reader Store is closing soon, there is still plenty of time to take advantage of their newest promotion: 30% off any one eBook.

Click here to browse the 480 titles eligible for this discount @ eBookStore.Sony.com now

  • Coupon Code: 30MAR14
  • Discount: 30% off a select eBook
  • Expiry: 10th March 2014

There are actually as many as 480 titles to choose from, but here are just some that caught my attention:

Another one that peaked my interest is the Talk Like TED: The 9 Public-Speaking Secrets of the World’s Top Mind by Carmine Gallo, which can be reduced to $9.09 with the code instead of its regular price of $12.99. I have watched many TED talks on a variety of topics and the way in which each speaker is able to capture and most importantly, hold the audience’s attention has always perplexed me. But these principles don’t solely extend to public speaking as they can most certainly be applied to regular discourse as well. If this subject interests you, be sure to also have a look at Carmine Gallo’s YouTube video as it offers a quick glance at the topics explored in his book, most notably through the importance of stories and images as effective persuasion tools.

As always, this code is also available on the Sony Reader Store coupons page.

Be sure to leave a comment with the eBook you will be using this discount on! I will most likely be using it on Gallo’s book.

Harlequin Canada Coupon: 40% Off Site Wide

There’s no denying that you can, of course, read the description, but that isn’t nearly as fun.

KoboBooks Canada Coupon: 30% Off Select Titles

Give a new book a try and save 30% on select titles with this coupon code at Kobo Books for a limited time!

Get a new eBook @ KoboBooks.com now

  • Coupon Code: JANGET30
  • Discount: 30% off select titles
  • Expiry: 26th January 2014

How many times have you heard the saying “don’t judge a book by its cover“? Well this time, don’t do it! All of the titles that you can save 30% on with the code above are lesser known books, but that certainly doesn’t mean that they’re any less worthy.

Take for instance The First Confessor: The Legend of Magda Searus, which you can get for $2.09 instead of $2.99. Out of over 4,000 reviews, it actually has a rating of 4.25 stars out of 5 on Goodreads along with 4.9 stars out of 5 on Amazon.ca. Granted, it’s Terry Goodkind’s 15th novel in the series, but it’s one you could technically start the series with, considering it’s a prequel to the entire story. There’s also the option of buying it just for the sake of saving money on it, and sinking your teeth into the first one in the series: Wizard’s First Rule.

I totally understand if you would rather read a book that is first in its series, or perhaps isn’t even in a series of titles at all, like this one: Why Men Love Bitches: From Doormat To Dreamgirl: A Woman’s Guide To Holding Her Own In A Relationship. Certainly a most interesting title and subject for a book, but nevertheless an interesting one as the author, Sherry Argov, examines different scenarios such as to why men stop being romantic after a while, or why nice girls are taken for granted.

Is there a book you have been wanting to read for ages but just haven’t gotten around to? I’m always on the lookout for new titles to read, so be sure to share which one it is in the comments section! Personally, I’ve been holding off on reading the last book in Charlaine Harris’ Sookie Stackhouse series: Dead Ever After, because as much as I want to find out what happens, I just can’t believe it’s already over!

Plus, if you haven’t already bought the book you have been wanting to read and it’s not on the above list of books you can save on, then be sure to use this Kobo Books coupon to save 30% on all purchases.

ScottSigler.com Coupon Code: Get ‘Bones are White’ eBook for Free!

Posted by on January 16, 2014 at 7:00 PM

ScottSigler.com Coupon Code: Get Bones are White eBook for Free!

Get the second book of Scott Sigler’s Color series for free with this magic coupon code!

Click here to get Bones are White @ ScottSigler.com

  • Coupon Code: NSFW
  • Discount: FREE
  • Expiry: Unknown

Scott Carl Sigler is a contemporary American author of science fiction and horror as well as an avid podcaster.

–From the Book of Knowledge, Wikipedia

They fail to mention that he is a New York Times best seller. Why? Because he writes great books and, I suspect, because he is innovative He sells most of his books in eBook form only, he does audiobooks of all his books and he pioneered the Podiobook, an audiobook that is released in podcast form.

I think people respect a writer who takes risks. The safe way to go is work and work until a publisher buys, prints and sells your book in stores. I don’t know for sure but I feel like Sigler’s books aren’t even available in bricks and mortar stores. I could be wrong though. Regardless, he’s definitely indicative of how the publishing industry is going.

This particular book, Bones are White, is a collection of short stories and is the second in the Color series. The first one is Blood is Red. Bones are White is regularly $4.99 but the coupon code gets you the eBook for free.

I should mention that the book is free because Scott recently appeared on TWiT’s NSFW Show and one of the stories in this book was created on the show a bit ago. The NSFW Show story is called Beam up on Aisle Five.

The Reading Room: Read Free Chapters Online

Posted by on January 8, 2014 at 12:00 PM

The Reading Room: Read Free Chapters Online

I want to introduce you to a new to Bargainmoose website called The Reading Room. The Reading Room is just what it sounds like, a place to read. Here you can download books to read on your e-reader, but it is much more than that. It is also a community, where you can find out about new books, great books and join book clubs and discussions for free. You can also read chapters of books for free, so you can decide if the book is for you before you purchase.

There are so many handy features on The Reading Room. It is very simple and free to create an account. I did it in 30 seconds. After that you can add books you are currently reading and rate them, so other readers can decide if that’s a book they want to read. There is a bookshelf and a wishlist so you can add books you have read or would like to read as well. Create yourself a 2014 reading list because reading more books is a very important resolution that everyone should resolve to do. You can even challenge yourself to read a certain number of books in the year.

Once you’ve done all that, head over the book club section and start or join a book club where you can discuss books or categories of books. This is all free too.

If you want to buy books, what I love about this site is that you can preview the books first, without having to stand awkwardly in the aisles of Chapters. You can read a whole chapter of a book and decide if you want to continue with it and spend the money buying it, or forget it. I’ve bought and borrowed so many books that I did not like within a chapter, but once you’ve spent that money you almost force yourself to read the book and waste your time. Now you don’t have to.
