As you may know, I’m the founder of Read Tuesday—a Black Friday type of event for book lovers on December 9, 2014—and I’m also one of the many participating authors.
Visit the Read Tuesday catalog to explore the variety of books that are on sale. The catalog includes both print and digital, Amazon and Smashwords, fiction and nonfiction, adult and children, and a nice variety of subjects and genres. Find the full catalog here:
Really, this post is about Read Tuesday and the many amazing books on sale for the event. But I want to show authors that they could promote their own books while promoting the event, so in that spirit, I will describe which of my books are on sale for Read Tuesday.
My self-publishing 4-books-in-1 boxed set is participating. The Kindle edition is temporarily reduced to $2.99 (compare to $17, the price of buying each volume separately). The Kindle edition is ridiculously priced less than the cost of Volume 1. The paperback edition is down to $19.99 (compared to the individual cost of $37). Buy the paperback at Amazon first and get the Kindle edition free through MatchBook (give the paperback as a gift and keep the Kindle edition for yourself). Or buy the paperback edition at CreateSpace at https://www.createspace.com/5099591 and save 40% (on top of what you already save) with discount code LARLUWFM (valid only at CreateSpace).
My arithmetic boxed set is also on sale (get 4 books for the price of 1).
I have several FREE MatchBook offers, which are great for gifting. Buy the print edition first at Amazon, then get the Kindle edition of the same book FREE. Why is this great for gifting? Because you can give the print book as a gift and keep the FREE Kindle edition for yourself. (Why doesn’t Amazon advertise this? It’s perfect for the holidays.)
There are many authors participating. See all the FREE MatchBook offers participating through Read Tuesday here:
If you prefer print books, you can save 40% off my algebra, astronomy, chemistry, and word scramble books at CreateSpace. (Word scramble puzzle books make for great gifts.) You can find the discount codes at the link below (along with many other great offers):
Even better, you have the chance to get free print books. For example, enter the Goodreads giveaway for my 4-in-1 self-publishing set. I also have free review copies to give away for my algebra workbook. Other authors also have giveaways or review copies to give away. Find all the free print book offers here:
But again, it’s not about my books. It’s about the spirit of reading. There are many authors participating, and a great variety of books to choose from. Check out the Read Tuesday catalog:
Happy Read Tuesday! 🙂
