Books on Sale: Holy Crap You Guys

Shopping Cart of booksI've been tweeting the books I find on sale at #bfbooks  because…holy crap, you guys. So many books and deals today. If you see some, please post in the comments or email me – I'll be continuing to tweet them as I find them!

Here are a few: 

Here are a few of the other book and box set deals I've seen: 


Book Game of Thrones Box Set

Books 1-5 of the Game of Thrones series are $9.99 right now. Suppose there's someone you know would LOVE a five book set of the Game of Thrones series. Or, suppose there's a fantasy fan in your life that you'd like to maybe not see for a few weeks straight. This would be a terrific gift for them – and for many other people I can think of.  

For the first time, all five novels in the epic fantasy series that inspired HBO’s Game of Thrones are together in one eBook bundle. An immersive entertainment experience unlike any other, A Song of Ice and Fire has earned George R. R. Martin—dubbed “the American Tolkien” by Time magazine—international acclaim and millions of loyal readers. Now this bundle collects the entire monumental cycle in the most convenient format available: A GAME OF THRONES A CLASH OF KINGS A STORM OF SWORDS A FEAST OF CROWS A DANCE WITH DRAGONS 

Amazon: $9.99 




Book I Capture the Castle

Dodie Smith's I Capture the Castle is $1.99 right now. Heather S. wrote to me, “This book is being made into a movie. It has 330 reviews, 4.5/5 average on Amazon. I'm reading it right now, and I'm really enjoying it.” 

I Capture the Castle tells the story of seventeen-year-old Cassandra and her family, who live in not-so-genteel poverty in a ramshackle old English castle. Here she strives, over six turbulent months, to hone her writing skills.

She fills three notebooks with sharply funny yet poignant entries. Her journals candidly chronicle the great changes that take place within the castle's walls, and her own first descent into love.

By the time she pens her final entry, she has “captured the castle”–and the heart of the reader–in one of literature's most enchanting entertainments.

Book Warm Bodies

Warm Bodies is $1.99 right now. Carrie S reviewed this book and gave it a B+:

“I can tell you with confidence that Warm Bodies is an amazing book. Its use of language is marvelous, the sense of humor sneaks up on you in the most fantastically subversive fashion, and it is deeply moving. It also meets my romance novel criteria of old. Not only is the love story the most important aspect of the novel for personal reasons, but the fate of the world hinges upon its success.” 

R is a young man with an existential crisis–he is a zombie. He shuffles through an America destroyed by war, social collapse, and the mindless hunger of his undead comrades, but he craves something more than blood and brains. He can speak just a few grunted syllables, but his inner life is deep, full of wonder and longing. He has no memories, noidentity, and no pulse, but he has dreams.

After experiencing a teenage boy's memories while consuming his brain, R makes an unexpected choice that begins a tense, awkward, and stragely sweet relationship with the victim's human girlfriend. Julie is a blast of color in the otherwise dreary and gray landscape that surrounds R. His decision to protect her will transform not only R, but his fellow Dead, and perhaps their whole lifeless world.

Scary, funny, and surprisingly poignant, Warm Bodies is about being alive, being dead, and the blurry line in between.

Book Ella Enchanted

Ella Enchanted is one of the Kindle Daily Deals today at $1.99 – today the deal is good for a bunch of books that were or are being made into films.  

How can a fairy's blessing be such a curse?

At her birth, Ella of Frell was the unfortunate recipient of a foolish fairy's gift — the “gift' of obedience. Ella must obey any order given to her, whether it's hopping on one foot for a day and a half, or chopping off her own head! But strong-willed Ella does not tamely accept her fate. Against a bold backdrop of princes, ogres, giants, wicked stepsisters, and fairy godmothers, Ella goes on a quest to break the curse — once and for all.

In this incredible debut novel comes the richly entertaining story of Ella of Frell, who at birth was given the gift of obedience by a fairy. Ella soon realizes that this gift is little better than a curse, for how can she truly be herself if at anytime anyone can order her to hop on one foot, or cut off her hand, or betray her kingdom'and she'll have to obey? Against a bold tapestry of princes, ogres, giants, wicked stepsisters, and fairy godmothers, Ella's quest to break the curse once and for all and discover who she really is is as sharply funny as Catherine, Called Birdy and as richly poignant as Beauty, and has all the marks of a classic in the making.

Book Confessions of a Shopaholic

Audible's daily deal today is Confessions of a Shopaholic, unabridged in audio for $3.95. This audiobook is 11+ hours, and is performed by Emily Gray. 

Rebecca Bloomwood just hit rock bottom. But she's never looked better….

Becky Bloomwood has a fabulous flat in London's trendiest neighborhood, a troupe of glamorous socialite friends, and a closet brimming with the season's must-haves. The only trouble is that she can't actually afford it — not any of it.

Her job writing at Successful Savings not only bores her to tears, it doesn't pay much at all. And lately Becky's been chased by dismal letters from Visa and the Endwich Bank — letters with large red sums she can't bear to read — and they're getting ever harder to ignore.

She tries cutting back; she even tries making more money. But none of her efforts succeeds. Becky's only consolation is to buy herself something … just a little something…

Finally a story arises that Becky actually cares about, and her front-page article catalyzes a chain of events that will transform her life–and the lives of those around her–forever.

    Audible has 300+ books for $4.95 or less. I grabbed Gunmetal Magic and a host of others. I am now several dollars poorer, but will be enjoying a good book via my ipod for weeks to come.

    Sourcebooks: Jill Mansell and Georgette Heyer. I just loaded twenty new books on my Kindle.  Black Friday deals that I didn’t have to stand in line for or defend myself from over zealous shoppers. I’m feeling pretty good!

    Oh my goodness!  I just skimmed the whole list—you could spend a small fortune on books with the name”Darcy” in the title—there must be at least 20 of them!!  But I did also notice that Michael Malone’s books are included.  Off I go to warm up the credit card…

    The Smutketeers blog announced two Kindle deals this morning. The MIDNIGHT INK bundle (featuring Carrie Ann Ryan, Mari Carr, Sidney Bristol, and five others) will be 99 cents for “a couple more days” (whether that means until Sunday or through Sunday, I’m unsure). Also, the novellas GETTING SCROOGED by Eden Bradley, NOT SO TINY TIM by Robin L. Rotham, and MARLEY IN CHAINS by RG Alexander have been bundled as A Kinky Xmas Carol, and will be 99 cents for a limited time. (I bought them each for 99 cents apiece earlier in the year; I particularly recommend NOT SO TINY TIM, which is a shockingly successful blend of romantic comedy, BDSM-inflected m/m/f menage, and heartwarming holiday story.)

    Turns out if you buy too many books at once, you can overload your nook. It flickers and the screen turns black if you try to read. You have to reset the whole thing back to the beginning state, go online and archive almost everything and then re-register it. Not that I would know much about that. Just saying.

    @ Moran
    Thank you for the kobo code.  I didn’t think it would work for me (in Aust.) but it did and I just picked up a book I’ve been debating buying for $3.10! 

    Off to check out all the rest of the sales now. :-)

    That Sourcebooks sale is awesome – and dangerous to my wallet! 

    Are they making another movie version of I Capture The Castle?  I saw one a few years ago that was a lovely film.
