The Sunday Salon and End of Summer Sale on eBooks

Welcome to The Sunday Salon and The Sunday Post! It's that day of the week bloggers from all over the internet get together virtually in a large gathering place called The Sunday Salon and talk books!  And at The Sunday Post, which is a weekly meme hosted by The Caffeinated Book Reviewer, in which more bloggers share their bookish news!

Today I saw an add in my email for an end of summer sale at Williams Sonoma. END OF SUMMER?! I suppose in New England, the end of July does make us think of getting all those summery things done that we want to do before it snows. But summer is still here and I still have a long list of reading for all those books that came out this year that I haven't had time for yet. But just like the end of summer sale at William Sonoma, book publishers run sales too, and today I just saw a bunch of those books on my TBR list pop up on eBook sales. Yes, it's interesting to see how publishers happily discount eBooks every once in a while to get them in our hands. When the choice is between an eBook and a paperback, if there isn't a big difference, I go for the paperback. But here are some books where there's no doubt...

If you want to read any of these books, and don't want to patronize the library, and have an eReader, grab these while you can. THESE ARE TODAY ONLY sale prices!!!

And one more thing... these eBook prices change without notice, so always check the price before clicking the "buy" button...

The Girls by Emma Cline... An indelible portrait of girls, the women they become, and that moment in life when everything can go horribly wrong—this stunning first novel is perfect for readers of Jeffrey Eugenides’s The Virgin Suicides and Jennifer Egan’s A Visit from the Goon Squad.

Question... Hardcover, Paperback or eBook?

I enjoy getting a bargain when I buy books. I hope you found something here that you were thinking about, because today is definitely the day to grab any of these. Of course I have a TBR pile in my Kindle as well as on my book shelves, but at least they're a little easier to handle on the Kindle....

Have a great week! Happy reading... Suzanne

I am still old-fashioned enough to prefer a paperback... but I can't turn down a great e-book bargain!

I almost never pick an ebook over a real book...unless I'm headed off on vacation.

Suzanne Yester said...

Yes, Cozy, if there's not much difference between the paperback and the ebook, I prefer the paperback. I try to remind myself I want to read the words and how I get to do that isn't important, but it's hard sometimes. One of the hardcover books I bought for vacation had its ebook equivalent incredibly cheap and I almost wish I had waited.

Suzanne Yester said...

Yes, Deb, loading up the Kindle with ebooks is so much easier than lugging them along, especially if I'm getting on a plane, but like you, I just love having that book in my hand.

Greg said...

As a fairly new ebook reader I do like when they go on sale! I might have to get the Hypnotist's Love Story as I'm a big fan of Liane Moriarty after reading Big Little Lies. Looking forward to her new one as well although sadly that one won't be on sale anytime soon. :)
