#Reading is what #ReadTuesday is all about (Black Friday type of Dec. 9 #Book Sale)

Skylar Robbins: The Mystery of Shadow Hills by Carrie Cross


Read Tuesday, Dec. 9, 2014, is a Black Friday type of sale just for books. We’re highlighting amazing deals at retailers like Amazon and Smashwords. This includes print and e-books; fiction and nonfiction; adult, teen, and children; and a variety of subjects and genres.

But it’s more than just getting great book deals. It’s about spreading the joy of reading and improving literacy. That’s what it’s all about.

Give the gift of reading this holiday season.


We have both print books and e-books participating. (Did you know that e-books can be gifted? Learn how here.)

(2) Buy the Print Book, Get the Kindle Edition Free (Great Gift Option)

These books take advantage of Amazon’s MatchBook tool, setting the MatchBook offer to free. First purchase the print edition at Amazon, then get the Kindle edition for free. Read the instructions at the top of this catalog (click the following link) to learn more (it includes pictures to help make sure that the MatchBook price will be free).


(3) Smashwords Coupon Codes

Prefer to buy e-books at Smashwords? Check out these discount codes (up to 100% off).


(4) Print Book Discount Codes (Paperbacks Make for Great Gifts)

These discount codes are valid at CreateSpace (an Amazon company, though the codes don’t work at Amazon, only at CreateSpace). Find discounts up to 40% off. The per-book shipping charges are more economical if you purchase multiple books (be sure to apply each discount code and check that the savings are applied to all of the books).


(5) Free Print Books

This includes two kinds of free print books. Some are Goodreads Giveaway contests that you can enter. Others are free review copies that authors have available (contact the author at the link provided to learn more).
