        Sweet! Waiting for a price to drop on a book is awesome. Got The Lost Symbol. I actually had this on my wishlist since the day I bought my Nook, and if I recall correctly, it was around 11.99 at first, then it dropped to 9.99. Now 3.99!  Glad I waited!

         

        Other books seems interesting, but SO MANY BOOKS TOO LITTLE TIME!! :-) ACK! :-)

          rechecked your list today and downloaded several new additions.  Keep up the good work.

            Hi, everyone!

             

            I kept running into the size limit for my bargains list, so I decided to split it into two lists.  The original list is mostly fiction titles, and my second list ("Best Nookbook bargains, continued") is mostly nonfiction selections.  I do edit the lists frequently, removing titles that are no longer on sale and adding new ones as I find them.  Again, the books are

            (1) Sale ebooks from major publishing houses.  The sales are limited time, of course, and may last -- depending on the publisher -- anywhere from 2 days to 2 months.  So if you're interested in a title for yourself, you'd better snap it up while you can.
            (2) Not written by Indie authors.  (This is not a comment on the quality of Indie publications, but merely a reflection of my focus.)
            (3) Generally not promoted elsewhere on B&N (although sometimes they show up on the Steals 'n Deals page after I'd already discovered them).
            (4) Listed in no particular order (they're frequently arranged by color contrast!).

             

            Here are the links for the two versions of the list:

             

             

            cheers,

            Kirsty

                Thanks for the heads up on the Brad Melzer title!  A few new additions to the lists today...

                 

                cheers,

                  Kristy, thank you so much for these wonderful lists!  I have now bookmarked your (fiction) list page. 

                   

                  I bought three titles after your first posting and I may pick up a couple more today.  I appreciate your diverse tastes :smileyhappy:. . .  and your thriftiness. :smileyvery-happy: 

                   

                  I simply must put in a plug for one book that I found thanks to you and your list:

                   

                   

                  The Air We Breathe  The novel's narrative voice, a collective "we,"  is unique and the historical fiction plot based upon TB patients in a state-run hospital in New York during WWI involves some truly remarkable characters.  This is one of my favorite books--DTB or NOOKbook--of the year.

                   

                  Thank you especially for that find.  Who knows, I just may find something to eclipse it in my next purchases.  Again, many thanks.

                      Several great new titles added today from Grand Central.  My fiction list is too full, so things have spilled over onto a third list "Even More Nookbook Bargains" (which you can find by looking to the sidebar where my other lists are linked).

                       

                      cheers,

                            Hi, everyone! 

                             

                            There have been minor changes all along on my lists (we're starting to see some titles dropping off now that January is here), but there are some new additions, too.  Most recently, there have been new promotional titles from Little, Brown & Company.  They don't offer as many sale titles as St. Martins Press does, but they're still good choices.

                             

                            Also, although usually I keep the bargains under $4, I found that there were a number of great $4.99 mystery titles from Little, Brown & Company.  I have added these to the Even more Nookbook Bargains list, in case anyone's interested.

                             

                            Here are the links again for my lists:

                             

                            Happy New Year to all!

                              Just wanted to highlight two books that I was very excited to see get promotional pricing!  The first is one of the top-selling and most popular physics books, Physics of the Impossible by Michio Kaku:

                               

                              Physics of the Impossible by Michio Kaku

                              Synopsis

                              A fascinating exploration of the science of the impossible—from death rays and force fields to invisibility cloaks—revealing to what extent such technologies might be achievable decades or millennia into the future.

                              One hundred years ago, scientists would have said that lasers, televisions, and the atomic bomb were beyond the realm of physical possibility. In PHYSICS OF THE IMPOSSIBLE, the renowned physicist Michio Kaku explores to what extent the technologies and devices of science fiction that are deemed equally impossible today might well become commonplace in the future.

                              From teleportation to telekinesis, Kaku uses the world of science fiction to explore the fundamentals—and the limits—of the laws of physics as we know them today. He ranks the impossible technologies by categories—Class I, II, and III, depending on when they might be achieved, within the next century, millennia, or perhaps never.

                               

                              Publishers Weekly

                              In this latest effort to popularize the sciences, City University of New York professor and media star Kaku (Hyperspace) ponders topics that many people regard as impossible, ranging from psychokinesis and telepathy to time travel and teleportation. His Class I impossibilities include force fields, telepathy and antiuniverses, which don't violate the known laws of science and may become realities in the next century. Those in Class II await realization farther in the future and include faster-than-light travel and discovery of parallel universes. Kaku discusses only perpetual motion machines and precognition in Class III, things that aren't possible according to our current understanding of science. He explains how what many consider to be flights of fancy are being made tangible by recent scientific discoveries ranging from rudimentary advances in teleportation to the creation of small quantities of antimatter and transmissions faster than the speed of light. Science and science fiction buffs can easily follow Kaku's explanations as he shows that in the wonderful worlds of science, impossible things are happening every day. (Mar. 11)

                              The second is a science fiction title that's been on my wishlist for a long time.  I actually have a print copy, so when I saw the price had dropped it was a no-brainer to snap up the e-version as well.  (I can't wait until they get digital versions of his trilogy!).  It's Best Served Cold by Joe Abercrombie:

                               

                              Best Served Cold by Joe Abercrombie

                              Synopsis

                              Dark fantasy meets hard-boiled thriller in a stand-alone tale of revenge, set in the world of acclaimed author Joe Abercrombie's First Law Trilogy.

                               

                              Publishers Weekly

                              Abercrombie returns to the blood-drenched arena of the First Law trilogy (The Blade Itself, etc.) with this skillfully crafted and bleakly humorous sword and sorcery adventure. Duke Orso imagines that he can become king by ending the civil wars that have devastated Styria, but he errs by trying to kill his overly popular general, mercenary Monza Murcatto. Recovering from her massive injuries and mourning her murdered brother, Monza vows vengeance on Orso and half a dozen of his accomplices. Employing her own motley crew of death dealers, Monza gets her revenge, but it's neither simple nor satisfying; each target requires fresh strategy, and each death has unexpected effects. Abercrombie is both fiendishly inventive and solidly convincing, especially when sprinkling his appallingly vivid combat scenes with humor so dark that it's almost ultraviolet. (Aug.)
