How To Save Money On Ebooks: A Bargain-Hunter's Guide

BY Elisa Verna, JULY 17, 2014 | PERMALINK

I know I’m not alone in admitting I have an ebook hoarding problem. The allure of 99-cent novels and accumulating books that don’t take up physical space (I live in NYC, space isn’t cheap) is something I just can’t resist.

And I’ve become a master at not paying full price for ebooks. With so many sales, discount codes and loopholes, why should anyone? I’m not saying I won’t pay full price for a book, I absolutely will and have. If there is a book I must have immediately, I will pay for it as soon as it’s available. I’ve even paid for books I’ve gotten review copies of, because if something is that good and I want to support the people who worked hard to create it, I will.

I just can’t pay full price for every single book I buy because of this elusive thing called money. So below are my tips for scouting out deals and making sure your bank account isn’t demolished by your growing collection of ebooks.

1. Libraries

Free books! Many libraries are adapting to ebooks with digital lending. While this service varies among libraries, it’s worth checking out what your local library offers in terms of ebooks. The NYPL has a whole section of their website dedicated to ebooks and managing lending services online.

What We're Reading: Lovin' Some Loveswept

BY Mala Bhattacharjee, JULY 15, 2014 | PERMALINK

Every once in a while you stumble upon the perfect summer read. Lucky for me, I stumbled twice in a row after picking up review copies of two of Loveswept's new titles — Have Mercy, by debut author Shelley Ann Clark (out now), and Ruthie Knox's Truly, which comes out on August 5.

The covers of Have Mercy and Truly side by side

In Have Mercy, bass player and struggling bar owner Tom McKinney is fascinated by soulful singer Emme Hayes. When he joins her band and their state-to-state van tour, they make more than just beautiful music together. What follows is funny, heartfelt, and knock-your-socks off sexy, because Tom is a submissive, eager to have Em set the rules of their game — especially if said game keeps his mind off his troubles at home. The words "Yes, ma'am" have never been as electric as they are in Have Mercy, deployed by Clark's sharp and clever pen.

If that doesn't have your curiosity a bit piqued, then how's this for some fan-yourself-worthy dialogue? "You look good kneeling at my feet, sugar."  "I'm always kneeling at your feet," Tom said. "Even when I'm standing."

Whew. Is it hot in here? If Have Mercy is Clark's first single, then I can't wait for the whole album!
