Science Fiction & Fantasy Daily Deal

Two books in the Renegade X series by Chelsea M. Campbell

Sixteen-year-old Damien Locke has a plan: major in messing with people at the local supervillain university and become a professional evil genius, just like his supervillain mom. But when he discovers the shameful secret she’s been hiding all these years, that the one-night stand that spawned him was actually with a superhero, everything gets messed up. His father’s too moral for his own good, so when he finds out Damien exists, he actually wants him to come live with him and his goody-goody superhero family. Damien gets shipped off to stay with them in their suburban hellhole, and he has only six weeks to prove he’s not a hero in any way, or else he’s stuck living with them for the rest of his life, or until he turns eighteen, whichever comes first.

Romance Daily Deal

Girl in the Wild by Beth Orsoff

When Los Angeles publicist Sydney Green convinces her boss to let her produce a documentary for the Save the Walrus Foundation, the only thing she is really interested in saving is herself. Sydney sees the walrus as merely a means to improving her career and her love life—and not necessarily in that order. For any other client Sydney would’ve killed the project the second she learned she’d be the one having to spend a month in rural Alaska, but for rising star, and sometimes boyfriend Blake McKinley, no sacrifice is ever too great.

Business & Investing Daily Deal

The International Bank of Bob by Bob Harris

Hired by ForbesTraveler.com to review some of the most luxurious accommodations on Earth, and then inspired by a chance encounter in Dubai with the impoverished workers whose backbreaking jobs create such opulence, Bob Harris had an epiphany: He would turn his own good fortune into an effort to make lives like theirs better. Bob found his way to Kiva.org, the leading portal through which individuals make microloans all over the world: for as little as $25-50, businesses are financed and people are uplifted. Astonishingly, the repayment rate was nearly 99%, so he re-loaned the money to others over and over again.

Teen Daily Deal

Breaking Beautiful by Jennifer Shaw Wolf

Allie lost everything the night her boyfriend, Trip, died in a horrible car accident. Although she managed to jump out before he lost control of the car, Allie can’t remember anything from that night-but she has a sinking feeling that it was no accident. As their small seaside town, mourns the loss of one of its brightest, Allie feels guilty that she can’t help solve the mystery of the crash. But more importantly, she is secretly relieved to be free from the relationship that caused her more pain than the one night of the crash ever did. The abuse she suffered at Trip’s hands is a secret she kept for so long, even from her twin brother, Andrew, and her best friend, Blake.

Kindle Freebies

Beyond Control (Beyond Love Series #1) by Karice Bolton – 4.3 stars, 58 reviews – Everything in Gabby Sullivan’s life is going according to plan–her father’s plan. With a brilliant job in the corporate world, glamorous parties, and a beautiful condo overlooking Seattle, she is thrown into a world she doesn’t want to claim. It’s not until Jason crashes into her world that she realizes she’s not really living.

Broken Strings by Nancy Means Wright – 5 stars, 4 reviews – When puppeteer Marion collapses during a performance of Sleeping Beauty, her friend Fay Hubbard will carry on. But Fay already has her hands full with three demanding foster children—Apple and Beets, who have a fractious jailbird father, and sixteen-year-old Chance, who has a crush on an older guy in a band called Ghouls. And now Marion’s husband Cedric seems more interested in a drop-dead-gorgeous French teacher than with any string puppets. And who is the mysterious Skull-man who warns of death if the show goes on with one of Marion’s offbeat endings?

Kobo Daily Deals

Kobo is no longer going to be included on this list. This is the third time in the past two weeks where they’ve neglected to post a daily deal, despite the fact they advertise it on top of every single page. If Kobo can’t get their act together then nuts to them. I even emailed them about it last time, but no one cares at Kobo, that much is clear.

Nook Daily Find

Safe in His Arms by Colleen Coble

Historical romance with a hint of danger as Colleen Coble (Blue Moon Promise, Butteryfly Palace) continues her fan-favorite Under Texas Stars series in this tale of love and suspense on a Texas ranch.

Nook Note

Does anyone out there actually care if I post Barnes and Noble’s daily deal and a couple of free ebooks each day? My reports show that not a single person has purchased the Nook Daily Find since I started doing this. People are only paying attention to the Kindle deals so maybe I’ll just drop the Nook from this list entirely. If you want me to keep including Nook please let me know.

  1. Well, don’t keep the Nook deals in just for me, but I have gotten a number of the freebies since you started this.

    • It’s good to know you’re getting some use out of it. Maybe I’ll keep it around. I don’t want to do just Kindle deals. And Kobo is too unreliable, and doesn’t have a free ebook section anymore.

  2. Nathan,

    The Nook blogs have a excellent ongoing thread which reports on free Nook Books. Most Nook owners looking for freebies likely know this and use that source. I would say go ahead and stop listing Nook stuff. There is already an easy one stop shop for that.

    I can post the link for this thread if you think it is appropriate.

  3. I would like for you to continue to include Nook books in your offerings. I download both Nook and Kindle books. There are many sites with free Kindle ebooks, I get a daily email with free and discounted Kindle ebooks. Nook seem to get dissed by blogs. As a side note, I own all of the Nooks except the First Edition. I also own the Kindle Keyboard and the Kindle Fire HD 2012. I never turn on the Keyboard and very seldom turn on the KHD.

    • Yeah, Amazon has their affiliate program so all kinds of websites and blogs post about all things related to Amazon. That’s why I wanted to post some for Nook and Kobo. They have affiliate programs too but they are unreliable and aren’t worth the time to use, so most websites don’t care to mention much about them. But I honestly don’t care about affiliate programs because they pay so little anyway and are a hassle to deal with; I just want to do posts people find useful. And it looks like some folks are finding the free Nook books useful so I’ll keep them coming.

  4. I find all your posts useful, no matter the subject. 🙂

  5. I have gotten several free Nook books since you started posting them each day so it would be great if you could continue esp since there are so many other ways to get Kindle books while Nook is usually left out, perhaps another reason Amazon is winning the ereader wars.

  6. I take advantage of the Nook Freebies so I would miss those.

  7. I have a NookColor with an N2a card, allowing me to access Nook, Kindle, Google Books and Kobo. I do check out the Nook offers…I just wish there was more available there.

  8. I have used both the Kindle and Nook offering for freebies and to buy books. It’s easier to see every thing in one place than look at several sites. Very helpful to me.

  9. I’ve purchased a few of them also.

  10. I like having the Kindle and Nook deals in one place, although I can check on the Nook stuff on the Nook Blog. It’s just more convenient.

  11. Even though I use the B+N Free Friday books & apps link, I like a variety of sources. I have downloaded several books from your site and would like to see you continue to include Nook offerings.

  12. Please keep the Nook listing. I look at it everyday. Finding time to read is an issue but I still buy books ‘for when I have the time’.

  13. I think it’s pretty funny all the people that stood up for the Nook wanting to keep them coming, but not a single person minds dropping Kobo from the list. That’s the power of free ebooks; Kobo really should consider reinstating that section to their website…

  14. Yes, please keep the Nook listing. I download both Kindle & Nook books, but I actually spend more time in the Nook books. Thanks for all the great info!

  15. I use both Kindle & BN deals. I also refer
    to friends,coworkers and family.

  16. Please continue posting the Nook info….
    Thanks

  17. I check out all the deals including the Nook and while I haven’t yet bought the daily deal I have used the Nook freebies listing to read books by several authors I was inexperienced with or unaware of. Nice way to find an author whose books you could become addicted to reading. Thanks for the listings by the way!!!!
