Who Knew They Were Free?

books-xlargeDespite rumors and predictions to the contrary, printed books continue to enjoy huge popularity. Ebooks, however, maintain their large share of the market, mostly due to their convenience and lower price. That said, if you are a voracious reader there’s a way to get popular titles at  greatly reduced prices.

Bookbub.com offers a service in the form of a daily email listing ebooks that are free or deeply discounted for a limited time. Recent examples are: The Girl on the Train, slashed from $11.99 to $1.99 for one day only; Gone Girl from $9.99 to $2.99; The Da Vinci Code was given away free for one week.

The Bookpub emails are sent out each day and more than 7 million readers have taken advantage of this remarkable service, downloading books on Kindles, Nooks, iPads, iPhones, Droids, and more. One reader exclaimed she’s downloaded more books than she can read in a lifetime.

There’s something for everyone—fiction, non-fiction, romance—more than 20 categories to choose from, and all at least 75% off retail or free. The bottom line is readers can save hundreds of dollars using this service. Check them out.

  1. I’ve used BookBub before usually to promote an earlier book to interest readers in other books in a series. It is expensive, and they are picky about which books they’ll use despite the price.
