Kobobooks Canada: Hunger Games Trilogy – Now $6.38 (Was $30.39)

Posted by on November 18, 2013 at 10:00 PM

Kobobooks Canada: Hunger Games Trilogy   Now $6.38 (Was $30.39)

Kobobooks Canada has the Hunger Games Trilogy at a price that just can’t be beat unless you are stealing it, which is not recommended. The trilogy is currently listed at $30.39 and when you use coupon code 80Nvbr you get the entire trilogy for only $6.38.

With the second movie, Catching Fire, hitting theatres this month (November 22nd according to IMDB) you might want to brush up on your storyline if you have read the series before, or if you haven’t you might want to take a crack at the books beforehand. They have been an extremely popular series of books that is also producing an extremely popular movie trilogy so far. In fact, this year at my home university they are teaching Hunger Games in the children’s literature class along with books like The Chronicles of Narnia, The Hobbit, Harry Potter, and Anne of Green Gables.

I bought my husband the Hunger Games trilogy from Kobobooks and he read it through the Kobo iPad app. I have never seen him read through three books so darn fast! If you do not have the Kobo app you really should check it out. It is really simple to have it installed in multiple devices like your tablet, phone, and your computer. It is also free and it is a great system for reading books on. My favourite feature is reading my books on a black background with white text.

Have you read The Hunger Games Trilogy? Are you looking forward to the second movie?

Click here to shop education books @ eBooks.com now

  • Coupon Code: education15%cp
  • Discount: 15% off educational books
  • Expiry: 31st December 2013

When I saw “education” books I actually thought it was educational books. Like books specifically to teach you about penguins or the socio-economic effects of 1970′s Mexican ape populations on Israel.

Turns out it’s actually books about education. There are books for teachers and parents of school kids. There are books on how to get your class to do what you ask, books about college writing and even books to teach a principal how to manage the school. For parents there are books like Overcoming School Anxiety to help your kids through leaving home and dealing with tests and homework. That one is only $3.12 before the coupon code. After the code it’s $2.65.

These are, as the website name suggest, eBooks and they will work on Kindle, iOS, Android, Nook, Kobo, PC, Mac, Sony Reader and I’m sure any other reader you may have.

  • Coupon Code: 50MOOSE
  • Discount: 50% off PDF eBooks and Chapters
  • Expiry: 14th October 2013

Lonely Planet is doing something very interesting with their eBooks that I haven’t seen before. Maybe I haven’t seen it because I don’t buy a lot of reference books, but in any event, it’s cool. What they are doing is letting you buy individual chapters of books. If you’re going to India, you might want to pick up their brand new India Travel Guide – 15th Edition for $12.24 after our 50% off coupon. If you are only going to Delhi, however, why get the whole book? Just pick up that section of the book with our coupon code for $2.48!

I think a lot of people would just use the internet for their info when travelling, but having a professional, especially when you’re in a strange land, is way more comforting. If you’re going to New Hampshire, you probably don’t have to get a professionally done guide book (although you could) since you can just go ask someone if you have a question. Their culture is similar enough to ours that there is no real barrier there. When you’re in a totally foreign culture though, the last thing you want to do is ask someone where some museum is and end up upsetting someone because you made the wrong gesture or used the wrong words.

I’m not sure what people are reading these days, as I have my head firmly planted in textbooks and reading material for school. I just finished reading Hamlet and Catcher in The Rye. This weekend I need to plow through The Crucible (a very painful book to read) for class on Monday.

Not into reading the classics? Check out some of these books, then. I would much rather be reading Under the Hawthorn Tree by Ai Mi than The Crucible. The book costs $12.71, but after coupon comes down to $8.90.

Click here for awesome eBooks @ eBooks.com now

  • Coupon Code: CATEGORYSALECP
  • Discount: 20% off select categories
  • Expiry: 30th September 2013

Oftentimes it seems that most book categories take a back seat to fiction. This is likely because of the internet. It’s easy to get all the info you need on photography, science, travel, business and transportation with a quick Google search nowadays. But, with eBooks and great deals like this from eBooks.com, there is no reason not to pick it up in book form. The eBook allows for a great marriage of technology and books. It has the convenience of the internet and that special, undefinable quality of a book. Of course, getting 20% off isn’t a bad thing either!

Probably the biggest thing for me when I’m looking at eBooks from a non-vendor retailer (Not Amazon, Kobo, Chapters, Sony, etc…) is what they are compatible with. eBooks.com makes it easy, because it seems they’re compatible with almost everything. They say right on the top of their page that their books work with Kindle Fire, Apple, Android, Nook, Kobo, PC, Mac and Sony Reader. That is pretty much every major reading platform out there, so don’t worry about getting a book that doesn’t work. It’s also great if people in your family have different devices. A book you get from eBooks.com can work on your Kindle, your husband’s iPad and your kids’ Android tablets.

CopyHackers.com: FREE eBook on How to Write Better Copy for Your Business & More Freebies!

Posted by on September 11, 2013 at 10:30 PM

CopyHackers.com: FREE eBook on How to Write Better Copy for Your Business & More Freebies!

Are you writing your own copy for your website or business? Learn to write better copy for free at CopyHackers.com.

There have been a ton of awesome free eBook deals lately. There were two fitness/paleo diet books (from NerdFitness and Paleo Network) and a couple of business related ones (from FreshBooks and eReleases). This one is another business related book and is about writing copy. What is copy? Glad you asked.

Copy is basically the text on a website, advertisement, etc. From The Book of Knowledge (Wikipedia):

Copywriting is the act of writing copy (text) for the purpose of advertising or marketing a product, business, person, opinion or idea.

People are paid a lot of money to write copy. Near the end of Season 5 of Mad Men, Peggy Olson was making $19,000 a year as Copy Chief at Cutler Gleason and Chaough. Sorry, I’ve been watching a lot of Mad Men lately.

Anywho, the free 172 page eBook is called Using Psychology to Boost Conversions and is available directly via this link but you should really sign up for their newsletter to get it. If you dig it, awesome. If you don’t, unsubscribe. And speaking of awesome newsletters that you definitely should subscribe to, sign up for our Mooseletter.

The other freebies are work sheets, cheat sheets and a webinar. You can get that in their Free Awesomeness section.

Ok, the fine print is done. The sale is pretty straightforward. You get 50% off one book. The deal might not be available on every book so make sure you check the total before you buy. The coupon code is one use only so I could only test the first book in the list below. I’ve included the coupon price and the Amazon price just to compare. The coupon price may not be valid, but due to the nature of the code, I can’t test it.

This deal went out on our weekly MooseLetter yesterday so if you were subscribed, you would have gotten this exclusive code yesterday. What is a MooseLetter? it’s BargainMoose’s weekly curated newsletter full of deals hand picked by our Queen and Dictator, Anna. Make sure you subscribe right now!

O’Reilly Coupon Code: Save Up To 60% On 7000+ Technical eBooks & Videos

Posted by on September 8, 2013 at 8:30 PM

OReilly Coupon Code: Save Up To 60% On 7000+ Technical eBooks & Videos

If your favourite technical books have to have drawings of animals on them, you need to check out this sale from O’Reilly.

Click here to learn @ Oreilly.com now

  • Coupon Code: B2S3
  • Discount: Up to 60% off
  • Expiry: 10th September 2013, 2:00AM

The deal is for 50% off over 7000 Technical eBooks and videos, but if you spend over $100 (that’s not hard to do) you save 60%. Keep in mind that this expires at 2:00AM on the 10th so really, you should be getting these before the end of the day on the 9th.

I love O’Reilly books. Not just because of the great drawings of cute or weird animals on the front of them but for their content, too. O’Reilly media is made by nerds for nerds. Without even looking at their content (which is top notch), they offer everything DRM-Free. You can access their videos and eBooks in multiple formats for life, and they sync with Dropbox. You also get any updates for free. Once you buy this stuff it’s yours forever.

Like I said, there are over 7000 eBooks and videos, and when you start getting into them all, well, the selection is absolutely staggering. You can learn almost any technical skill with them. If you want to learn how to program in C++, it’s there. Riding the new wave and want to develop for Android or iOS? Learn it with O’Reillly. Don’t want to program? Learn to administer a network. They have tons of geeky goodness for everyone.

You can get more deals on our O’Reilly Coupon Code Page.

Paleo Network Freebie: 3 Free Paleo Living eBooks

Posted by on September 1, 2013 at 9:00 PM

Paleo Network Freebie: 3 Free Paleo Living eBooks

**Before starting any diet, consult a doctor. If you’re taking dieting tips from BargainMoose, consult a psychologist. You have something deeper going on.

Remember the last time I spoke about free fitness eBooks, the ones from NerdFitness? Remember how scared I was of Tony Little back then? Well, I’m still scared, so I suggest picking up three more fitness eBooks, this time on paleo living, lest Mr. Little eat your family.

Again, I kid, I joke. Tony Little is awesome, and don’t you forget it!

Here is another free eBook thing like the one I mentioned in the Intro. Basically, the lady who runs this Australian Paleo website wants you to sign up for her newsletter. You can, of course, unsubscribe from her newsletter, but it has some pretty cool stuff in it, so you might as well stay on. Regardless, the eBooks are free and you can keep them even if you never go to the site again. The books are:

  • The Definitive Paleo Food List
  • A Week of Paleo Recipes
  • Paleo Guide to Australia
I’ve read most of the second book and a bit of the first. They are both very informative. I did look at the third one, but since it’s Australia specific it had a lot of info I couldn’t use. I really liked A Week of Paleo Recipes though. It’s a great way to get started if you’re a bit scared about the whole concept.

To sign up and get the books, go to the website and find the “Get Two Free Paleo eBooks!” section on the right hand side. Sometimes you’ll get a pop-up when you first visit telling you about the offer. If you get it, you can sign up there. I know it says two, but you get three. Not sure why. You can also buy some of her other books if you are so inclined.

The website itself has a lot of great info but, for me, it has a bit too much tree-hugging hippy crap. Again, that’s just me. If you want a recipe for homemade men’s deodorant, you can get it on The Paleo Network. The site does have some really good recipes though, so I’ll be going back to get those for sure.

Oh, and if you want the recipe for home made woman’s deodorant, here it is. Check out the original article for recipes for solid deodorant and men’s deodorant. Get our your Witch Hazel, people!

  • 5 teaspoons of distilled witch hazel
  • 5mls (0.17 fluid ounces) of vitamin E oil
  • 10 – 20 drops of geranium essential oil
  • 10 – 20 drops of ylang ylang essential oil
  • 5 drops of clary sage
  • One small spritzer bottle

This deal is certainly not for people like me. People like me (university students) are busy trying to either a) get a head start on their textbooks for the impending school semester or b) are using the weekend to sleep, party, shop, or any combination of things that celebrate their last weekend of freedom.

However, I do know this list includes books I would much rather read than the books I have been assigned. Unfortunately, I highly doubt if I suggested to my Shakespeare teacher that we should study The Merchant of Venice Beach instead of The Merchant of Venice that she would agree. Maybe inside she would be like ‘Hell yes!’ but I doubt my idea would fly. The book is extremely affordable, only $3.04 now and after coupon it comes down to $2.13. If only my textbooks could be that cheap!

Audible: Daily Deals – New Book On Sale Every Day

Posted by on August 27, 2013 at 10:30 PM

Audible: Daily Deals   New Book On Sale Every Day

Your spouse loves Audible more than they love you. Your parents love it more than you, too. You know why? Because they have a new, awesome book on sale every day during their Daily Deals sale!

The link above gets you a free book and a trial membership. Cancel the membership any time and keep your free book. I would suggest, if you don’t get the Platinum (the one I have) or Gold plan, that you get a yearly lite account. That way, you pay $10/year and get access to all the sales and freebies. I did this for about two years because I was re-listening to a lot of the books I already had.

There are a lot of places out there to get audio books, but Audible is hands down the best audio book place in the universe. Really, me and the universe had a talk, it was a whole thing, but it doesn’t matter. What does matter is that the universe agrees that Audible is the best! Why? I’m glad you asked. You see, Audible has more audio books, radio shows, audio newspapers and speeches than anyone else. They have the best readers and they record previously unrecorded classics. For instance, they are recording classic Sci-Fi through their Audible Frontiers initiative.

Another great reason to shop with them is their Daily Deals sale. Every day they are putting up a new book at a great price. Yesterday was Life of Pi for $3.95. The book is normally $18.11, so you would have saved $14.15. That’s not including the 30% off the retail price you get for being a member. Today’s book is The Black Echo: Harry Bosch Series, Book 1 for $4.95. The member price is $19.09, so you’re saving $14.14. Again, that doesn’t take into account the savings you always get for being a member.

I don’t know what the books will be in the future or how long this deal is on for, but the book of the day expires at 11:59PM ET every day. I think, in the past, they have brought back all the Daily Deals at the end for a day, but I’m not certain, so if there is a book you really want, pick it up on the day you see it. Make sure you’re checking back on Audible every day for the next deal.

Before I leave you to go to the Daily Deals sale, I want to tell you about a couple of new features on Audible. Well, not super new, but I’ve never spoken about them so here it goes. The first is that Audible is now WhisperSync compatible. That means that if you get the Kindle version of the book too (buying both gets you a discount) you can pick up where you left off on either. So, if you read 20 pages in the Kindle version, the Audible version will auto-magically pick up where you left off. Alternatively if you listen to five minutes of Audio, the Kindle version will be waiting where the audio left off. You can even listen and follow along with highlighted words on the Kindle, which is great for people learning to read.

The other thing is super simple returns. It used to be that it was kind of annoying to return a book at Audible because you didn’t really return it, they just gave your money back. The company still lost the money on the book. Now they actually pull the book from your library, thus regaining a license they can resell. It’s more like a physical book. I think this is what is happening. I’m not 100% sure, but the end result is that you can easily return books now.

I’m not a traveller. My mom was a traveller when she was younger, but it never really caught on with me. Don’t get me wrong, I’m taking my family to Disney when my boy is a bit older, and we take trips a few times a year. I’m just not like some people who need to convert all my money to Pula and ride a Donkey through Botswana. It’s just not my thing.

I’ll tell you what, I feel enough like a dummy when I ask a restaurant in the States for a pop and they look at me funny. Soda, right? I can’t imagine going to Egypt or Russia or Spain and completely messing something up. Ask where the bathroom is and find out you’ve just challenged the president’s mother to a knit-off to the death. Not a good scene.

So, get ready for your next trip with some of these guide books. Even if you aren’t going away, I’m sure some of these would be interesting reads to learn about a new place or culture. They also have the option to buy individual chapters. Let’s say you are buying their Middle East Phrasebook – 2nd Edition but you only want to know Farsi phrases, you can buy just the Farsi section. The prices per chapter are fairly high compared to the whole book, so it’s best to get the whole thing, but it’s up to you. Regardless of what you get, you get it for 50% off with our exclusive coupon code! These are PDF downloads, so there is no shipping.

eReleases Canadian Freebie: Write A Good Press Release With This Free eBook + Bonus Reports & Offers

Posted by on August 14, 2013 at 10:00 AM

eReleases Canadian Freebie: Write A Good Press Release With This Free eBook + Bonus Reports & Offers

Have something the world needs to know? Learn how to tell them with this free eBook.

We can’t all have our own PR Shills, so sometimes we need to shill for ourselves. There are actually a host of problems with being your own PR person, but most of them come down to one key fact: you are not a PR person. Generally a PR person is formally trained, in some way, to be the public face of your company. At the very least, a good PR person will spend some time learning from others before they become the face of your organization.

Unfortunately, it’s expensive to have a public relations person, even if they aren’t full time. So, you need to do the fairly critical job of promoting your company to the world on your own. A big way to do this is to be pushing out press releases. My boss here at Bargainmoose did her own PR, and press releases, for a long time. I got her to give us a little blurb (not unlike a PR person would) on press releases: 

From time to time, we would put out a press release for Bargainmoose. We do this whenever we launch a new product or service on our site, or just want to tell people about an achievement. For example, when we launched our Bargainmoose app it reached the top 10 free apps in Canada on iTunes – we thought this was a good enough achievement to write a press release about. Or, when we launched our Boxing Day dashboard collating all the Boxing Day best deals, we put out a press release to try and get a bit of buzz going about it. The aim of press releases – ideally, you want it to be picked up by the main media outlets, be that newspapers or the TV news channels, but that’s very hard to achieve. eReleases Canadian Freebie: Write A Good Press Release With This Free eBook + Bonus Reports & Offers You can just be lucky and someone popular will spot it and cover the story.

So, how do you, the hapless business owner, learn to release to the press like a press release pro? Well, starting with a free copy of the Beginner’s Guide to Writing Powerful Press Releases from eReleases is not a bad step. The book is by Mickie Kennedy, the founder of eReleases, and contains 160 pages of tips on writing press releases. At the end of the book, there is a coupon code and a chance to get a ten minute consult with Mickie about your PR situation. They also give you the PDFs of what they call “reports” on various PR subjects. Well, there are five “reports” that add up to over 200 more pages of PR goodness, so the bonus material is more than the actual book. Pretty good bonus, if you ask me. The book, were it not free, would retail for $29.

Lulu Canada Coupon Code: 40% Off Book Printing

Click here to get your book published @ Lulu.com now

  • Coupon Code: NEWPODS40
  • Discount: 40% off Print on Demand
  • Expiry: 16th August 2013

If you’ve been following my career here (and I know you all have, right?), then you have seen me talk about being a writer. I even wrote an article (my most popular article yet) on how to publish your book for free or cheap. In that article, there was a comment that mentioned Lulu, which is a great option to print copies of your book.

It’s an even greater option when you use this 40% off coupon. You can bang out books for less than $2.50 each, and there are no minimums. You don’t need to buy 1000 books to get the discount. You can get it on one book if you just want a copy for yourself.

While you’re at it, they now (maybe it’s been a while, not sure) offer eBook publishing to Amazon, B&N and iBooks as well as on Lulu.com.

Shipping is fairly expensive because you’re shipping heavy books, but it’s not any more expensive than anywhere else. As usual, it depends on what you get and where you are.
