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.

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.

1. The Cloud Roads by Martha Wells is free on Amazon.com right now.

2. Ten Things We Did (and Probably Shouldn't Have) by Sarah Mlynowski is 99 cents on Amazon.com

3. At Best Buy (looks like both the site and in store), M-Edge eReader accessories are 25-50% off. (Cases for a variety of eReaders.)

4. If you have a Target with Target Mobile near you (no idea, but find out here), you can trade in your current, working Kindle and get a $50 gift card to use towards a new Kindle (in case you want to upgrade to a Touch or Fire).

Awesome to have this community!

Since I'm an "international" resident (Canada represent!) and using a Kobo which reads epubs, I'm definitely interested in cheap ebooks that aren't restricted to US download only (I can convert .mob to .epub with Calibre).

One suggestion I'd have, can we have some sort of roundup post where people post quick review or grade of cheap ebooks they recently acquired? My problem is often getting overwhelmed by title of books without summaries or a review. It could be something as simple as: "I bought X book for 1.99$ on Amazon.com, it's the story of A. I give it 3 on 5 stars", or something of the sort. What do you think?

Oooh, I LOVE that idea! Thanks! Or maybe include that in the regular, weekly posts? Because, yeah, that's sort of my concern with the self-published books. I know there are good ones out there, but there are also a LOT out there at really good prices, so it seems to make sense to be a little selective?

And yes! I'm going to try to keep an eye for books that have a wider availability. I THINK the ones in the comment thread above should work for you? At least, I noticed some of them have a Kobo option.

That would be great! I'm not really in the literary loop so often times just posting a title and/or author doesn't mean much to me but a small blurb and grade would help a lot!

Delirium by Lauren Oliver is on sale for $2.99 for the Nook and the Kindle. Check other sites, too, as I imagine it would be on sale elsewhere!

Delirium is a YA dystopian romance set in a world where love is "cured." I thought it was pretty well written, but didn't quite buy the premise and wasn't very emotionally engaged. Still, I 'd give it 4/5 stars.

Kobo is currently having a 30% off sale on selected titles:

Discount code: newyear30ca
Offer exp: Jan. 1 2012, 11:59PM EST
One Coupon Per Customer

Kobo 30% off selected titles

You don't need a Kobo to buy off their site I think since you can download the files as an epub after purchase.
