Looking for an alternative to Amazon since Amazon has yanked Macmillan books due to price wars and the future of ebook prices with the announcement of the iPad after Macmillan signed with Apple to put its books in the ibookstore?
AllRomanceeBooks.com and OmniLit.com have a special offer for you this weekend only. I kid you not: 50% off every title in the store this weekend only. NO REALLY. They may not have everything but boy howdy they’ve got a lot. Thank you, folks! Let’s go shopping, shall we?
The discount will only appear once the code is entered in the shopping cart and the “Calculate Discount” button is selected. This offer expires at midnight 31 January 2010, 11:59 PM Mountain Standard Time.
And here’s a spiffy note from Lori James, CEO of AllRomanceeBooks: “We will be paying publishers based on the Full Retail price for this promotion, so the discount will not affect Publisher commissions or author royalties.” SAY WHAT!
Disclaimers: I’m not earning commission from these links, and I haven’t read every one of the titles and authors I mention. Objects in mirror may be closer than they appear.
You ready? Let’s GO SHOPPING.
How about G.A. Aiken’s Dragon books? I confess to having a total squishy love for them. They’re like campy fairy tales with violence and fierce women and kickassingness everywhere. I even re-read them, which is rare for me.
If you’re in the mood for historical, check out Laura Kinsale’s Lessons in French. At half the price, that’s $3.49. Want some knit-kit? Spinning Forward by Terri DuLong is available and half off that book is some big savings. I haven’t read it but have heard lovely things about it. Craving mystery? Lori Armstrong’s new hardcover, No Mercy, is $25, or $12.50 with discount, and they have a ton of Charlaine Harris’ Shakespeare series featuring Lily Bard. (I loved the Shakespeare series. Talk about damaged heroine. Holy hell).
Curious about Rachel Vincent’s series? Both of them, from packs to banshees? Buy the whole set at half off. Wanted to check out the Jasper Fforde’s Thursday Next series? Here’s a good chance to buy two where you might have only bought one. (I might as well be writing that paragraph to myself, yo).
And hey, some books are available to gift to other people, so if you’d like to spread the half-off lovin’ around, give someone a book this weekend. LOVE the gifting option.
Thank you to AllRomanceeBooks and OmniLit for offering the discount – this is way awesome.
So, whatcha buying?
