Buying In by Laura Hemphill

Bright, ambitious Sophie Landgraf has landed a job as a Wall Street analyst.

It isn’t long before Sophie is floundering in this male-dominated world, and things are about to get worse. With the financial crisis looming, Sophie becomes embroiled in a multibillion-dollar merger that could make or break her career. The problem? Three men at the top of their game, each with very different reasons for advancing the merger. Now Sophie doesn’t know whom to trust—or how far she’ll go to get ahead.

Romance Daily Deal

Three Magic Words series by Carolyn Brown

All’s fair in love and war, and Sophie is determined to win the battle for her aunt Maud’s cattle ranch—even if it means fighting Elijah, a rude ex-military man. But it seems that even from the grave Aunt Maud is still matchmaking; her will states that both Sophie and Elijah must share the ranch evenly, and neither wants to give up a share. But Sophie’s main focus is on the ranch, not romance; she just put her life back together after being betrayed in her previous marriage.

Travel Daily Deal

Tune In Tokyo by Tim Anderson

Everyone wants to escape their boring, stagnant lives full of inertia and regret. But so few people actually have the bravery to run – run away from everything and selflessly seek out personal fulfillment on the other side of the world where they don’t understand anything and won’t be expected to. The world is full of cowards. Tim Anderson was pushing thirty and working a string of dead-end jobs when he made the spontaneous decision to pack his bags and move to Japan. It was a gutsy move, especially for a tall, white, gay Southerner who didn’t speak a lick of Japanese.

  1. The Kindle Paperwhite at Best Buy is for the paperwhite 1. I looked at the photos on the BB site and it showed the back of it. The PW 1 has Kindle printed on the back and the PW 2 has Amazon printed on the back. So, the one at BB has Kindle on the back.

    • Not much of deal then 🙁

    • Yeah I saw that too but you can’t go off the photos because they might not have updated them. I think it is the new one because it is the only Kindle Paperwhite Best Buy has listed. Why would they still be carrying the old one at this point… Also, they have the 3G Paperwhite and the price is $189, which is the price of the new model, and it too shows the old logo—I just don’t think the image was changed.
