Changing Things Up

You may have noticed that I missed posting on Sunday. That wasn't on purpose, but it did give me incentive to go ahead and change things up a little. Since nobody (including myself!) has posted new deals in a few weeks, instead of a weekly post, I will go ahead and post deals in their own entries as I come across them and encourage you to do the same. (The community is now off moderated posting, so anyone can post.) And remember the resource post is always a good place to check for good deals.

So, to simplify: If you find an eBook deal you want to share, post it directly to the community!

And to kick off this new form of posting, Amazon's February list of Kindle books for $3.99 and under is up.

And please let me know if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions. Thanks!

Weekly Post

Not much new, but check last week's post and the resource post for eBook deals!

And if you're interested in swapping Nook or Kindle books, check out eBook Fling.

And if you've come across any other deals, let us know in the comments! Thanks!

Weekly Post

So here is where you share any new deals for eBooks/eReaders/related products that you've discovered.

First off, Nothing new this week, but here are the deals that are still valid.Collapse )

I figure I'll transfer the permanent deals over to the resource post soon, so, if they disappear from the weekly post next week, that's why! (Still haven't done this, but keep tuned.)

Share anything new you've found in the comments! If you're sharing a deal for a book you've read, please let us know a little about it. Post a summary, what you thought about it, etc. Thanks!

And please let me know if you have any comments, questions, concerns, suggestions, etc.

And some new stuff:

1. Barnes and Noble Nook has a Nook bargain section. Anyone know if this is an ongoing thing or any other details?
2. Amazon's January selction of books $3.99 or less is up.

Weekly Post

Normally, this post will be on Sunday, but let's get this community started!

In the comments, please share any deals for eBooks, eReaders or accessories you've found.

Reminders:
1. No sharing links to illegal eBooks.
2. Go easy on the self-published books, especially if you haven't read them. Self-publishing is an awesome option, but these books tend to be cheaper and general and I don't want the community overwhelmed by them.
3. If possible (and if it's not a big site like Amazon or Barnes and Noble, where the restrictions are fairly well known), please post whether there are any restrictions for the book or deal you're sharing (such as whether it's only valid for a certain country or eReader).

And please also let me know if you have any general questions, comments or concerns.

General Resource Post

This post is for general resources for finding free and inexpensive eBooks. Please feel free to comment with anything I've missed. I'm especially interested in international and non-Kindle resources, as I am an American with a Kindle, who's less familiar with other options.

1. Your local library! In the United Staes, you can read library books on virtually any eReader. Outside the US, you can't yet read them on a Kindle, but, otherwise, any eReader should be good. Library books can also be checked out on smart phones, tables and your computer.

To find out if your library has eBooks, check your library's site or look at OverDrive. This is the system that most libraries use for eBooks.

Also, check out reciprocal agreements with other library systems in your area! A lot of libraries will let you get a library card if you already have a card at a nearby sytem.

2. Project Gutenberg. This is a fantastic resource for classics and out of copyright books. They're transcribed by volunteers, so you might find some typos here and there. Amazon and Barnes and Noble (and perhaps other book sites? Let me know!) also has a lot of these classics as free downloads. These can (as far as I know) be read on any device.

3. Every month, Amazon.com puts 100 eBooks on sale for $3.99 or less. I've found some awesome books I've wanted for a while this way! If you don't have a Kindle, you can read these on your computer or on a smart phone or tablet, using the Kindle App. I'm not sure about international availability. Let me know!

4. Amazon.com also has a Daily Deal, where they put one eBook on sale. They also post these on their Kindle Facebook page, which is how I keep track of them. Same restrictions as above apply.

5. Happy Ever After on Twitter posts deals for romance eBooks.

6. Barnes & Noble has a Nook Bargain section. They also have a Books Buddy app.

7. From stellicidio:

These are German books and you can only get them if you live in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Luxemburg and Liechtenstein. There's also an English book they're offering:

They also got some other offers, German books under €2, €3, €5:

And the same for English books:

And here are some free classics:

8. Pixel of Ink has free and bargain eBooks.

9. eBook Fling is a site for swapping Kindle and Nook books.

Any other sites? Again, you can see my biases here, so please, please chime in with what I've missed!

Welcome!

This community's goal is to share tips and resources for finding free and inexpensive legal eBooks, in addition to sharing deals on eReaders and eReader accessories.

If possible, when posting about a deal (and if it's not a big site like Amazon or Barnes and Noble, where the restrictions are fairly well known), please post whether there are any restrictions for the book or deal you're sharing (such as whether it's only valid for a certain country or eReader).

The general resource post is here. Check it out for long term eBook deals and tips!

And don't feel like you need an eReader to join! You can also read eBooks on computers, smart phones and tablets. And maybe someone will post a deal for an eReader that you can't resist!

The rules are pretty simple:
1. No sharing links to illegal eBooks. I know those are out there, but this is for those of us walking the straight and narrow path. :)
2. Go easy on the self-published books, especially if you haven't read them. Self-publishing is an awesome option, but these books tend to be cheaper in general and I don't want the community overwhelmed by them.
