Kobo Books Promo Code: 30% Off Select Titles

Kobo Books Promo Code: 30% Off Select Titles

Love to read? Then hurry on over to Kobo Books because you can save 30% off a number of select eBooks with the coupon code below, but only until Monday.

  • Coupon Code: READ30
  • 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.

Which titles have most intrigued you? Share with me in the commnts section!

Kobo Coupon Code: 30% Off Select eBooks

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.

Kobo Books Canada: Free First in Series Books!

Posted by on June 2, 2014 at 5:00 PM

Kobo Books Canada: Free First in Series Books!

If you love to read and also love a good freebie you are in luck right now. Kobo Books has a great deal on right now that will get you free eBook downloads with no purchase necessary. Get a big selection of “First in Series” books absolutely free for a limited time only.

You would think that there would be a limited selection because all of the free books are the first book in a series but you would be wrong.  There are actually over 100 titles to choose from and all of them are free of charge.  Additionally, there are so many different types of books for everyone’s tastes.  You will find free books for romance, thrillers, mystery, Sci-Fi, fantasy, horror and even erotica. There really is something for everyone with this freebie.

The great thing about this deal is that it is not just limited to one download.  You can download as many of these free titles as you would like.  I suggest getting the ones you are even not too sure about because who knows what price they will be after this deal.

This is the perfect way to start reading a new series on your eReader to see if you may like it. If you don’t know which ones you may like, each category has an editor’s pick to give you a little help. I have my eye on a couple of the First in Series books already to start reading.  Blood of Requiem written by Daniel Arenson is one of them that I have heard about and would love to read.  The other one I would love to read is actually already an editor’s pick.  In the romance section One Wild Night written by Jessie Evans looks like a great romantic read to me.

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.

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?

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.

Kobobooks Canada: Up To 70% Off Select Reads

Get over 70% off select reads at Kobobooks Canada, on right now for their September sale.

With books as low as $4.99, you must stock up! I still don’t have an e-reader, but my birthday is coming up, so maybe I’ll have to get myself a Kobo and some cheap reads.

I have been wanting to read:

The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry – a retired man sets out on an unlikely journey that will change his life – $4.99, was $11.99

Decisive: How to Make Better Choices in Life and Work – simply because I have a hard time making decisons – $4.99, was $15.99

The Billionaire’s Secrets – because a little smutty romance is allowed, especially at only $2.99

Moolala: Why Smart People Do Dumb Things With Their Money – and What You Can Do About It – totally self-explanatory – $4.99

These books are top-rated bestsellers, so you really are getting a great deal on great reads. We have several Kobo coupon codes in the forum, so check them out for more deals.

  • Coupon Code: LABOURDAY30

  • Expiry: 2nd September 2013

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!

There are plenty of good deals in this sale – it just depends upon your taste in books. Here are some of the higher value book discounts I found:

I am pretty sure these deals can’t be combined with any other deals like coupon codes or such. However, they are pretty good deals in their own right and you can get a couple books for under $10 – always a nice deal.
