Three Cheers for Cheap Indie E-books!

Unbridled Books has teamed up with American Booksellers Association to offer 25 e-books for 25 cents each from June 9-11.

Unbridled Books is one of my new favorites, so I'm excited about this opportunity.  If any of these titles come close to Safe From the Sea or Miss Entropia and the Adam Bomb (I haven't written a review for this one yet, but it was great,) then we're all in for a treat.

The titles are all Google eBooks, and will be available for 25 cents via IndieCommerce websites...which you can find at this IndieBound page.

Here's a list of the 25 books, including blurbs and cover photos.  Spread the word, and get in on the fun!

  1. Melody- Help for your non-techy friend. Are these e-books Kindle friendly? Also how do I purchase them? I didn't see a link for that. Belle

  2. Belle, buy them through one of the independent stores listed on the IndieBound page I linked (http://www.indiebound.org/google-ebooks). I think that you can use them on Kindle by emailing the pdf to your kindle email...let me try it out and let you know. :)

  3. Hrm...from what I can tell, the versions are all protected, and therefore not compatible with the Kindle. Grr. I'm not to fond of reading a book on a computer. :/

  4. No, I can't read off the computer either. I actually contemplated buying a Nook in order to take up this great deal. This is a really, really great deal! All of the books look so good. I am really going to have to keep myself away from B&N because I am so very tempted...

  5. Great, Belle. That hadn't even occurred to me--and now that's all I'm thinking of! I'll be lucky if I make it through the weekend without going to B&N. :D

  6. Okay - all books now purchased and I'm working on buying something to download them.

    $375.00 worth of indie books purchased for $6.25 - Not Bad!

    Even if I purchase a Nook for $140, I'm still get all books for more than 50% off!

    Thanks so much, Melody, for finding this deal for me. The Indie (my local one) that I bought from did not advertise this. I had to search each book in the catalog and purchase separately.

  7. By the time you read this again, Melody, I will have filled up your comments section with my whole life story.

    Nook bought. Mission accomplished. It only took me 2 hours on the phone with customer service to get those darn books downloaded. Whoof. In the end all is well. I have the books now.

    I can tell you right now, that I far prefer the Kindle for user friendliness.

    So anyhow, off to read now. I hope you had a good weekend.

  8. Oh Belle, you are such a bad influence on me! (It's a good thing we don't live closer to each other!!) I came home with a Nook this weekend too! :D

    It did take me a little bit of mental gymnastics to get the books from Google to Adobe Digital Editions to my Nook, but I've definitely been happy with my reading experiences so far. Did you get the new Simple Touch Reader? It's much improved over the 1st edition Nook...I'll have a post up tonight about it, actually. :)

    I'm happily sidetracked in my previously-scheduled-reading, and sooo thankful right now to have bad influences like you in my life! ;)
