    Nookbook price lowered to $9.99 or less

      I thought we could add an on-going thread of books whose prices FINALLY come down to $9.99 or lower.  There is a thread for what books you would buy if the price lowered.  So I thought it would be even better to share our finds when the prices do go down on "recently" released books.

       

      I have been waiting for House Rules by Jodi Picoult

       

      House Rules to go down from $14.99 for quite some time.  It finally made it to $9.99 and I just purchased it.

          TXAnnie - I like your idea! Here is my contribution:

           

          My Reading Life 

           

          One of my favorite authors. It will be mine as soon as I run by and put more money on my gift card.

           

          Here is something interesting. We have 2 B&N stores in town. One will let you reload a gift card and the other store insists that you can't reload a gift card and you have to buy a new one. I spend most of my money and time at the first. In fact I don't think I've bought anything except a coffee at the second one since I got my Nook in Feb. Almost never go there anyway because it is at a large mall and parking is a pain. First store has plenty of parking and the cafe is much more comfortable.

                That's a very curious thing for them to tell you. As far as I know, it doesn't make any difference to a store's sales figures whether you're buying a new gift card or reloading one, so they shouldn't be fighting you on it. I've made the reloadability of gift cards into a minor selling point when pitching NOOK to customers -- some people don't want to charge anything to their credit card, but their eyes light up when I tell them they can attach a gift card to their BN.com account and then reload it ad infinitum.
