Book sales!

I don’t know of any at the moment, but around the holidays there were quite a few solid sales from a number of great publishers, from various indie companies to 50% off from the MIT Press.

I made this topic as a place to share any great sales you happen upon — feel free to share both general info (link to site, types of deals, when it ends) and specific titles that catch your eye!

Oh yes, good call! I’ve enjoyed their newsletter for a while. It can be kind of a mixed bag but only take a few seconds to scan the daily email (usually highlighting 4-6 special deals) and I’ve found a number of good ones. I believe you can set genre preferences to get selections at least somewhat tailored to your interests.

Library of America has a spring sale going now til April 10th. (Related: Ursula K. Le Guin’s Always Coming Home is out w/ a new LoA edition that looks amazing: Always Coming Home)

20% off on your next order with coupon code SPRING2019

Just saw that the company behind Bookbub launched a similar service for audiobooks called Chirp. May be worth checking out for some good deals if you like that format!

Ahh…another big Verso 90% off ebooks sale! They do this a few times a year and always a great way to score some interesting books. Runs through 11:59PM EST on Sunday, July 28

Nice sale on ebooks from the University of Chicago Press — 75% off all ebooks through Aug. 16th:

https://press.uchicago.edu/index.html

Just browsed through all the genres that seemed interesting and opened up 92 books in new tabs…

However from their “about ebooks page”:

We have two licensing options for most of our e-books:

  • Perpetual ownership at list price
  • 45-day ownership for $10.00

And it looks like they use some Adobe eBook DRM thing, which sucks…that + the high list prices mean I may not be buying many…but regardless, many very intriguing books for the antilibrary!
