Google Play: Eisner Nominees Up to 66% Off Sale

Posted by on April 24, 2015 at 1:00 PM

Google Play: Eisner Nominees Up to 66% Off Sale

For all my fellow comic geeks out there, The Google Play Store is having another sweet sale. This up to 66% off comic book sale features select Eisner Award Nominees including The Walking Dead, Saga, and The Wicked + The Divine.

I am not one for ‘popular’ comics. In fact, if I know something is popular, I generally steer clear of it (I have still never read Harry Potter…). However, I borrowed the Saga volumes #1 and #2 from the library as I heard they were good. Good is an understatement, they are fantastic! On my recent book exchange in Victoria, I had the opportunity to add the physical copies of Saga vol. #1 and #2 to my collection. However, I am missing #3 and #4. In this sale, Saga, Vol. 3 and Saga, Vol. 4 are each on sale from $15.79 down to $8.41. If you are new to the series, make sure to pick up the earlier volumes as well. They are imperative to understanding the story line.

Now, I have a thing for volumes because it keeps them all neat and tidy, but the single issues are less expensive. Here is a bit of quick math:

  • Volumes (6 issues) = $8.41
  • Single Issues x 6 ($1.04 x 6) = $6.24

To put it another way, a single issue costs you $1.04. If you divide the price of the volumes up into the number of issues they contain, each issue would cost $1.40. Given that, I highly recommend loading up your computer or tablet with single issues. They will cost you less in the end.

The bulk of this sale is single issues and collected volumes of The Walking Dead. I have not read The Walking Dead, but my fellow writer Anna has. She said:

I read The Walking Dead graphic novels a few years ago. I think the order of things was something like this – watched Season 1 of the TV show, then read all the graphic novels I could get my hands on. This meant I was a few seasons ahead of the TV show! The novels were excellent… very dark, as I am sure you can imagine. I felt they were more gory and hard-hitting than the show though, sometimes the TV show tames things down a bit. If you enjoy the TV show at all – get the books! They’re even better, IMO.

As I mentioned, there are both collected volumes (6 comics) and single issues. Honestly, the single issues are a better price than the collected volumes. For example, The Walking Dead, Vol. 1: Days Gone Bye and all the other volumes are on sale for $8.41. However, each single issue of The Walking Dead will cost you only $1.04 – like this first issue The Walking Dead #1.

There are several other great graphic novels on sale too. The art in Pretty Deadly is amazing and the storyline behind The Wicked + The Divine really interests me as well.

If you are unsure if you will like a comic, then view the ‘free sample’ Google offers for each book.

Google Play Store: Up to 90% Off Heroine Comics – Now $2.99

Posted by on April 19, 2015 at 11:42 AM

Google Play Store: Up to 90% Off Heroine Comics   Now $2.99

The Google Play store has a fantastic deal on digital comics. The selection is called “Heroines Who Rule” and features leading ladies from Marvel, DC, and other labels. These digital comics are up to 90% off their usual prices, which means this is a fantastic time to indulge in a new or old favourite.

Some of you may have heard of The Sandman series by Neil Gaiman. It is a legendary graphic novel series that really threw Mr. Gaiman into the spotlight. The Sandman, as you might expect, is primarily about Dream. However, Dream has several siblings, my favourite being Death. Death: The Deluxe Edition is on sale from $30.97 down to just $2.99. This is 324-pages featuring Death in all her glory. You will find beautiful, heartfelt stories and musings about the meaning of life, love, and death. This is my ‘must buy’ pick of the sale.

There are so many good choices that I hardly know where to start. The cover for Captain Marvel Vol. 1: Higher, Further, Faster, More really catches my eye, probably because I could totally cos-play her. This volume – 136 pages – is on sale from $18.35 down to $2.99. I do not know much about Captain Marvel, except she looks gorgeous, badass, and sassy… and this is a great price. Volume one collects comics #1 through #6.

Fables has always been a favourite series of mine – one I have long debated buying but never have. I am attracted to the art of Fables, no matter what volume I read, the art is out of this world beautiful. The colours are also gorgeous – it feels like an old fairy tale. Purchase Fables Vol. 1: Legends in Exile: Volume 1 on sale from $10.32 down to $2.99.

While Death is the best deal of the sale, there are many other volumes of comics on sale from around $15 – $18 marked down to $2.99. I found several X-Men volumes like X-Men Vol. 2: Muertas that was $18.35 and is now $2.99. While X-Men is more of a team, these comic books feature strong leading ladies. You can also find some inspired by TV comic collections like Buffy: Season Ten Volume 1 : New Rules that was $15.99 and is now $2.99

I am incredibly impressed with this sale and happy to be posting about it. I would love to hear comic recommendations from our Moosers, so please comment below!

Pay What You Want for Bloom Country @ Humble Bundle

Posted by on March 12, 2015 at 7:21 AM

Pay What You Want for Bloom Country @ Humble Bundle

Lovers of comics will love this deal from Humble Bundle. Pay what you want for the entire collection of Bloom Country!

As a kid, I loved reading the comics section of the Toronto Sun. I actually used to read the entire Toronto Sun newspaper, with all its accounts of rapes and shootings, written for a grade five level audience. That suited me well, as I was in grade five at the time. But, my favourite was actually reading the comics section and I’m sure, although don’t quote me, that Bloom Country was one of the comics I read there.

If you don’t know Bloom Country, it is a story of small town America, examining politics and culture through the eyes of adult-like children and animals. I’m sure there were so many aspects I didn’t understand with Bloom Country, but it was a fun little read.

The cartoonist actually won a Pulitzer Prize for this strip in the 80s, which seems pretty amazing to me.

It looks like you can get volumes 1-4 with the pay what you want scheme and the rest have a minimum. I like the pay what you want scheme as it allows you to decide what the book is worth, but also challenges you to decide how charitable you want to be.

The value of the set that you are deciding on is worth $91. These are e-books if I haven’t made that clear and it is a specially formatted digital edition in chronological order.

I think this is a very cool set for someone who wants to be nostalgic or to give to your kids who you want to introduce Pulitzer Prize winning work.

Download The Catching Fire eBook for Free @ Google Play Canada

Posted by on February 18, 2015 at 2:09 PM

Download The Catching Fire eBook for Free @ Google Play Canada

Hey Hunger Games fans, check out this offer from Google Play. For a limited time, you can download the Catching Fire eBook by Suzanne Collins for completely free from the Google Play Store. Catching Fire is the second book of the Hunger Game trilogy, and is definitely worth a read. Even better, you can download the Google Play Store on any device to enjoy this freebie.

With my lifestyle it is hard to make time to sit down and read a book. Even though I can be quite busy, I still made time to read the entire Hunger Games trilogy. Actually, I found this book hard to put down. If you have yet to read these books, or perhaps would read them again, then now is the time. Right now the Google Play Store Canada is offering the second book of Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins, Catching Fire, for free. This eBook would have normally cost you $12.99. You can download the Google Play Store on any device to take advantage of the offer.

The best part about eBooks is the convenience. Take out your cell phone or tablet wherever you may be and start reading. You don’t have to worry about carrying around heavy books, or finishing your book half way through your train ride anymore. The Kindle edition of this book is on sale for $8.24 Amazon.ca right now, so getting it for free from Google Play is great.

Here is one of the customer reviews on the Catching Fire eBook:

I forced myself to read this book slowly, over the course of three days, because I just couldn’t stand that it had to end. WOW. Given how much I loved The Hunger Games, I didn’t think it was possible for Catching Fire to live up to my expectations. This eBook exceeded them. In all my speculations on where Collins was going to take Katniss and Peeta, I didn’t even get close. I’m going to try very hard to stay away from any spoilers here.

Not only is the Catching Fire eBook available for free, but the other two books of this Hunger Game trilogy are discounted greatly. You can get The Hunger Games eBook from Google Play for just $2.35 instead of the original price which was $12.99. The third and final eBook, Mockingjay, is also on sale from $12.99 down to $6.50. You can choose to get a “free sample” of either of these books, but I warn you,  you will be left wanting more.

Humble Brainiac Book Bundle – Pay What You Want ($60 Value)

Posted by on February 4, 2015 at 4:30 PM

Humble Brainiac Book Bundle   Pay What You Want  ($60 Value)

Pay what you want for a fantastic ebook bundle from Brainiac (publishers of fine geek reading everywhere) and Humble Bundle. Name your price for five fantastic books worth $60.65.

To calculate the value of the five books, I used the Amazon Kindle Editions of each book. These Brainiac books come in either PDG or ePub formats. You will receive:

  • Ruby Wizardry: An Introduction to Programming for Kids – Value $14.29
  • Lauren Ipsum: A Story About Computer Science and Other Improbable Things – Value $9.99
  • Snip, Burn, Solder, Shred: Seriously Geeky Stuff to Make with Your Kids- Value $12.41
  • The LEGO Adventure Book, Vol. 1 – Value $13.97
  • The Manga Guide to Electricity – Value $9.99

Those five books are yours to get for whatever price you want to pay. These Brainiac books are excellent for parents and children alike to share and learn in a fun and inviting way. Most the reviews on these books celebrate the unique way in which the information is presented, making learning fun and interesting. As one reviewer of the Manga Guide to Electricity says:

I wish I had something like this back when I was in school! This translated series from No Starch is impressive – it uses Manga characters to provide a good overview of the basics of electricity.

Now, if you pay more than the average price that people are donating (currently $12.14), you will unlock another five books to add your child’s ebook library. They are Build Your Own Website, Incredible LEGO Technic, Python for Kids, The Manga Guide to Physics, and LEGO Space. With 10 ebooks for just over $12, you are averaging $1 per eBook.

There is a third tier of ebooks as well. Pay $15 or more to receive all the above books plus three extras: The LEGO Neighborhood Book, Steampunk LEGO, and JavaScript for Kids. Overall, the entire collection of books is worth $250 and you have the opportunity to get it all for only $15.

If you love this bundle, but are unsure how to download the files or wondering if you have a compatible device, then read this simple guide. Now, if I had kinder running around my feet – I would probably buy the entire set for $15 (I assume that is USD). I like to encourage a love of learning and geeky pursuits in children.

Don’t miss out on the Star Wars Humble Bundle either!

Lonely Planet Coupon Code: Get 50% Off Site-Wide!

Posted by on January 21, 2015 at 12:00 PM

Lonely Planet Coupon Code: Get 50% Off Site Wide!

Winter always has me dreaming about all the fantastic places in the world I want to visit. Right now, you can start planning your trip and get 50% off cover prices @ Lonely Planet. Lonely Planet offers most of their guidebooks in e-book format, which means you will not have to worry about shipping. If you prefer a hard copy, you can receive free Canadian shipping automatically if your order is over $40.

Click here to use the Lonely Planet coupon code online now

  • Coupon Code: SECRET50
  • Discount: 50% off cover prices
  • Expires: 23rd January 2015

Now folks, this coupon code does get a little awkward, so let’s make sure we understand what is happening in the shopping cart before you purchase. The 50% off discount applies to the recommended retail price, not the sale price. The recommended retail price is the original price before any sales or discounts are applied. The good news is 50% off is more than the discount currently being offered as a sale price. If you are intrigued, try popping a book into your cart with the coupon code and you will quickly see what I mean.

Where you really score a deal here is if you order guidebooks in e-book format. No shipping is necessary so that means you have no minimum for this sale. eBooks are available in PDF, EPUB and MOBI formats. That easily covers Kindles, Kobos, Android Devices, Apple Devices and more. I usually read most of my e-books on my iPhone using the free iBooks app and I typically download the ePub format as a personal preference. I’ve noticed ePub has a lot of compatibility with iBooks to use all of the features of the program such as bookmarks, writing notes, definitions available within text for unfamiliar words, highlighting, etc.

If you prefer a hard copy there is free shipping available if you spend a minimum of $40. I find that with this sale you have to buy quite a few books to reach that $40 minimum. The good news is if you do a combination of eBooks and hard copy books, the eBook prices will apply towards your $40 to qualify for free shipping. If you are thinking about mixing and matching between eBook and paper copies, you are in luck. Look at my shopping cart below and you will see all the books I picked up are eBooks except one inexpensive paper copy. I am over the $40 minimum on my total order and now qualify for free shipping.

Lonely Planet Coupon Code: Get 50% Off Site Wide!

The hard copy books seem to ship from the US. Buyer beware, you may be charged duties upon delivery as they do not clarify on their site. If you opt for the free shipping it takes anywhere from 1 to 4 weeks! If you are digging eBooks, I think that is the way to go on this deal to get the best value for your money.

I am noticing a few guidebooks in eBook format I might be interested in snagging before my next vacation. There is both a Florida (was $24.99 now $8.74) and Miami and The Keys (was $21.99 now $7.70) guidebook, which is a hot location for an inexpensive tropical vacation and could give me some great insider tips on my next trip. Cuba is another hot location for a fabulous vacation on the cheap. The Cuba travel guide was $24.99 but is now $8.74. I would also be interested in this Europe On A Shoestring guidebook which was $29.99 but is now $10.50. I have been meaning to plan a European holiday but still need to save a little more cash first.

Bargainmoosers, where are you looking forward to traveling for your next holiday?

Get the Lonely Planet New In Travel 2015 eBook Free

Posted by on January 10, 2015 at 8:30 AM

Get the Lonely Planet New In Travel 2015 eBook Free

Are you watching the snow blow by your window, dreaming of your next vacation? I know I’m not the only one! I’ve been researching all of my vacations for the next 20 years, just so I can keep my spirits up during this frigid cold. Lonely Planet has just release a new e-book based on the hottest new experiences for this coming year and you can download it for free.

You can choose how you’d like to download your e-book for either iPad or iPhone or a PDF version. The Kindle versions are only for U.S. and U.K.

I already downloaded my copy, as I love hearing about fun new experiences that I can enjoy with or without my family. I wasn’t kidding when I said I’ve got the next 20 years of vacations planned (or dreamt of really), but I’m always excited to add another fun experience to my bucket list.

Looking through the e-book, I’ve found a few to add. One for example is doing a cape canopy tour in Western Cape, South Africa. Ever since I saw the movie Blended, I wanted to go to South Africa. I’ve also always wanted to try zip-lining and I think that would be a super fun vacation with my kids.

Another fun experience that is mentioned in the e-book is whale watching in Argentina on a yellow submarine. I don’t think I need to say much more than yellow submarine here do I? I would love to visit South America and while I’ve only whale watched in Quebec, it was quite an amazing experience.

Almost every idea I saw in the e-book went on my bucket list, and it was thrilling just to read them. This is a short little read, but they’ve got 26 ideas for unique travel ideas that are new this year and last. With all I want to do, the only thing left to do after reading this e-book is ask the boss for a raise!

Kobobooks Coupon Code: 25 to 50% Off Select Books

We sometimes see 30% coupon codes out of Kobo, but rarely do we see anything more. Today we have a 50% off coupon code for you to relish and a few smaller ones for other books in case you need more variety.

Click here to shop coupon qualifying books @ Kobo now

  • Expiry: 20th October 2014

Each coupon listed above has a link taking you directly to the books that qualify for that coupon code. I have tested these coupon codes and the do work so if you are having problems applying them, make sure you are in the right books section. You can only apply each coupon once per account. That means I can get one book for 25% off, one book for 35% off, and one book for 50% off this weekend.

Of course, I went straight for the 50% off section. There are plenty of romance novels in this section if you love that kind of thing. I would read them but my husband would never get any peace! I did find two cool books in this section that raised my interest.

An Etiquette Guide to the End Times Was $2.99 | After coupon $1.49

Granted this is a novella, but it still classifies as a book and sounds like it would be a fun read.

There aren’t any zombies (yet), but the world is still at the brink of destruction: It’s 2028 and global warming has led to rising oceans, crazy weather, and resource scarcity. On top of that, someone just turned the Internet off. Seeing as how it’s humanity’s last chance to turn things around manners are, understandably, a bit frayed.

I love the part about the internet being turned off, now that would be a nightmare! There are also chickens in the book… and I have a friend who loves chickens so I would think fondly of her while I read it.

Girl Reinvented Was $6.99 | After coupon $3.49

Probably a million girls have been in the place of the lead character in this book. Embarrassing situation and you wake up to find you do not have much in life. Family is so-so, few friends, no dreams, no romance. What is a girl to do? This one decides to reinvent herself and test the boundaries. I get where this character has been and totally want to read this book.

Thanksgiving is this Monday. After a good meal of turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, and stuffing; what are you going to do with your day off from work? You can either go for a nap or curl up with a good book. I vote both, personally.

I am not into eBooks much these days, but I ran across An Illustrated Book of Bad Arguments that is totally making me smile. Have you ever heard someone correct your argument by pointing out the logical fallacy? Then you might have been talking to me (or throwing things at me after I corrected you). This book illustrates some of the common errors people make in their arguments including the straw man fallacy, the slippery slope argument, [and] the ad hominem attack. I love this stuff; I did an entire course on logic and fallacies in university. Originally $12.50, the book is currently $8.99. After coupon code, I might just buy it for $6.29.

I laughed when I saw the title of this mystery book: Death of a Coupon Clipper. I thought it was so appropriate for our readers since we are all fairly thrifty with our money. I am sure we have many coupon clipper followers! Guess what the murder weapon is… scissors! This is a great read for those who like to save a few dollars and anyone who loves an eccentric mystery. Score it for only $3.33 after coupon (was $4.75).

I know that most of you are not even thinking about Christmas yet, but I did stumble across this cute Christmas book eligible for the coupon. Darling Saves Christmas is part of a continuing series of a curly tailed reindeer named Darling. The book looks very adorable and it would be great for young readers. Currently the book is $6.25, but it comes down to $4.38 after coupon code.

There are many other eBooks to choose from for children and adults. You never know what you might find when you are looking through the coupon section at Kobo. With unlimited uses, pick up a book for yourself and for your kids or a loved one.

  • Discount: 30% off select titles
  • Expires: Unknown

I love the feel and smell of actual books as much as the next book lover but I also much prefer reading books on my Sony eReader when I’m on the go. I have tons of books in my library and not having to lug around a million books around just makes it so much easier.

You can choose loads of great titles in categories like “romance”, “thrillers”, “sci-fi & fantasy” and “series”. As I have been a “sci-fi & fantasy” gal for some time now, I headed over there first and Daniel Arenson’s Requiem’s Song definitely intrigued me as it’s a story about dragons that has actually been rated #8 in sci-fi & fantasy, fantasy and epic fantasy. It can be yours for just $2.39 (reg. $2.99).

As much as I try not to, I have to admit that I most definetly tend to judge books by their covers as well. One of my all-time favourite passtimes is to walk around a bookstore and just take pictures of all the titles that catch my eye to then pick and choose which ones to order online. All this to say that virtually all of the titles in the “series” section caught my attention with their enticing covers and heck you never know, one of those may just be the next “Divergent” or “Hunger Games” as it would seem that Hollywood has been on a huge kick of converting book series into big-time movies. Given that we’ve seen plenty of vampire titles and now stories about post-apocalyptic world turn into major blockbusters, the next one may just be about shifters and dragons and may just be The Dragon Legion Collection by Deborah Cooke. You can get it for just $5.59 (reg. $6.99) and I even found over 50 ratings on Goodreads with a total of 3.94 stars out of 5. Here’s what someone had to say about it:

Wow this book was awesome! Full of dragon suspense mystery intrigue romance action packed drama twists and turns kept me on the edge throughout. I couldn’t put it down. Yes another all nighter reading but definitely worth it. I Highly recommend.

Lonely Planet Canada Promo Code: B1G1 On All City Guides

Posted by on September 3, 2014 at 2:30 PM

Lonely Planet Canada Promo Code: B1G1 On All City Guides

Ring, ring, London’s calling (or plenty of other top cities Lonely Planet Canada Promo Code: B1G1 On All City Guides )! If you’re planning on travelling and need a city guide, then check out Lonely Planet because until the end of the week, you can take advantage of a “buy one, get one free” deal on all city guide. Just add two books to your cart, apply the promo code below and voila, the price on the second book will be strike-through and the word “free” will appear instead.

Buy one city guide, get one free @ LonelyPlanet.com now

  • Coupon Code: FREECITY
  • Discount: BOGO offer on all city guides
  • Expiry: 5th September 2014

I tried the Lonely Planet promo code above on country guide but alas, it truly is only on city guides. Lonely Planet’s site can be a little confusing to navigate, but if you click the link above, then you will see a list of all of the city guides eligible for this promotion. Although all prices on Lonely Planet’s site are in USD, shipping is nevertheless free on orders over $40 to Canada. There are over 80 city guides to choose from and they are all for top cities like Moscow, Vienna, Paris, Seoul, etc. Even a couple of American cities have made it on the list like: Boston, Seattle and Chicago.

London has been one of the cities that I have always wanted to visit but I wouldn’t even know where to start. Searching the net for places to visit and things to go is great and all but the overflow of information can oftentimes be confusing and sometimes, it’s nicer to just read a book or a city guide in this case.

If you’re looking to learn about plenty of cities or if you plan on travelling to several ones in one trip but don’t want to carry that many city guides with you, then you can also take advantage of the BOGO offer on digital versions of these city guides. In fact, the promotion will still work even if you add an actual book alongside an eBook to your cart or even if you choose the bundle option, which is a guide for any given city in both a print and digital format. The bundled price is cheaper than if you were to get these separately. For instance, the Bangkok city guide in print form is $21.99, in digital form is $15.39 and as a bundle is $28.59. These are also the average prices that you can expect to see on almost all of the city guides.

Kobo Coupon Code: 30% Off Select eBooks

Posted by on July 18, 2014 at 10:00 PM

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.

(Expiry: never)
