Books On Sale

Ebooks Free and Discounted This Weekend

Christine Merrill’s The Inconvenient Duchess is a free PDF download from This book was released in 2006, and has pretty high Amazon reviews from its release.

Also in the TryHarlequin collection are three Spanish language novels—scroll all the way to the right to find them.

But wait, there’s more!

This weekend only, Fictionwise is offering 50% off all titles with coupon code


092311 (SORRY!). There are two caveats: one, the coupon is not valid on Samhain titles and certainly not on any agency publisher titles. Two, there’s not a huge selection at Fictionwise, alas. But they do have Harlequin titles, and at 50% off you can get quite a few for not a lot of money.

So what are you reading this weekend?


General Bitching...

    I just finished reading New York to Dallas by J. D. Robb, but now I’m taking a short break to read fanfiction.  But once I’m caught up with my fandoms of choice, it will be The Surgeon, the first Rizzoli & Isles book, by Tess Geritsen

    I just finished Duck! by Kim Dare. It has lots of good reviews on ARe, but I really disliked it. For those who like strange shifters, it has avian shifters. There are hawk shifters, duck shifters, finch shifters, and even a mention of a hummingbird shifter.

    I’m listening to Jane Eyre, which, shockingly, I have never read before, and reading a print copy of Meg Cabot’s Nicola and the Viscount. I’m also trying to decide what to read next on my Nook.

    FYI, the third book under “languages” is in Italian.  I went to read the summary and got seriously confused.

    Uh, just tried the fictionwise coupon code and it said “Expired or not valid with your login”. So no such luck :(

    Italian?  They’ve changed it then.  It looked like French to me.  The first two are definitely Spanish.  “Troublant tete a tete” caught my eye because I wondered what the original title was.  (Whether it involved “head to head” “toe to toe” or whether it was an incredibly lazy translation of the English use of “tete a tete.”)  The plot looks a little similar to the French movie “Heartbreaker” (L’arnacoeur), which in turn owes something to It Happened One Night.

    just finished the Last Werewolf by Glen Duncan. Fantastic literary/campy work!

    The Fictionwise code above is wrong. It’s 092311.

    You don’t have to worry about Agency Publishers at FW.  They don’t carry any agency books.

    Another caveat for some would be that any DRM’d titles (ie: Harlequin) are only available in “secure” eReader format so folks wanting to read them on Kindles, Nooks, Sony’s, etc will need to break out DRM removal and conversion tools.

    Yes, ‘Troublant tête à tête’ is definitely French. I downloaded it, just to see if I would like romance in French. (My husband’s French and no, not all French men are not romantic…)

    For those of us who like m/m titles, these coupon codes are fantastic, because they *do* apply to the big m/m publishers, like Dreamspinner and Loose Id.  They are great for checking out new authors.

    @GoneNova – Thanks!

    @MD: The reason the code didn’t work is because it is 092311 and not 92311 :)

    I have several Fantasy books on my Wishlist, but I am not buying them. I spent the remains of my book budget on Books on board’s flash sale. Oh well. I got books I wanted there, plus I have a healthy reward dollar account. Which I can spend on more books.

    I always have a fiction and nonfiction going. My current two reads are A Secret Affair by Mary Balogh, and At Home, A short History of Private Life by Bill Bryson (a must read for anyone writing historicals. He lives in a 200 year old vicarage in the English countryside and he goes through each room vividly describing how life evolved in each room. So fascinating, and he has a wonderful voice. Who would have thought how simple commodities such as salt and sugar would have changed the way people lived!)

    Collins says:

    I am halfway through reading Duck! by Kim Dare, and cannot put it down. It’s the kind of book I can’t stop read, and yet I never want it to end.

  15. 15
    Becky says:

    @Collins- If you like Duck! then you’ll be happy to hear she’s working on a second story in that world.  She still lists the release date as “to be confirmed” on her website, but it looks like she’s got a cover, so hopefully it won’t be too much longer.

    Maya S. says:

    I’m sure it actually is French.  For some reason I looked at it briefly and went “Not Spanish!  Must be Italian!”

    MD says:

    @Mikaela – thanks a lot, it worked this time.

    SB Sarah says:

    I am so sorry about the discount code! I will fix!

    And as for the language – also my bad. I was having a hard time reading the covers on my phone screen and thought it was Spanish. OOPS.

    Tres embarrassing.

    I am really unimpressed with Fictionwise. This was my first time buying from them, and I got 6 Harlequin Treasury books, downloaded the stanza ereader to my iphone and everything. Two of the books downloaded fine, but the other 4 show a “failed to download and import: unsupported url” error. I’ve looked everywhere on their website, but they have no customer service email address, only endless loops of faq’s. So frustrating. (all the faq’s refer to problems installing the app or “unlocking” your purchases, which I know isn’t the problem since I’ve been able to read two of them.)

    There’s also the MINISPEND20 coupon code at eHarlequin. Spend at least $20 and get $10 off your order. And it’s reusable, so if you add 4 or 5 books and checkout you end up getting them for almost 50% off. I won’t even tell you how much I spent on Treasurey titles there this month.

    It’s good until Sept 30th.
