Give Yourself an Early Ebook Christmas Present

Harlequin is having a 50% off all its ebooks December 5, 2007. Yes, all. We’ve recommended some of them in the past and those will be a whopping 50% off which means many of these books are going to be under $3.00.

If you win the Book Binge Holiday Contest, you can read those ebooks on an eBookwise Reader. Nice, no?

    I think I broke it, Jayne. I had 23 books in my cart and then it erased them all. ::weeps::

    I don’t see this as being on sale guys, only the paper books not the ebooks.

    Nope – it’s for ebooks. You enter the code: HALFPRICE. It’s on the front page of the eharlequin site.

    I just got The Best of Cowboys Bundle from Silhouette Special Releases and the one click Blaze Bundle for December all Half Off. That deal does rock.

    Only problems I had was they coded the site for Internet Explorer and the website checks to make sure you have Microsoft Reader installed before letting you buy LIT. Which was a pain because I use Firefox. Silly Rabbits!

    TP – I use the IE tab for firefox for that reason . It rocketh.

    Oh you know me it took about three tries before I started debugging their site and figuring out WTF they wanted.

    Most people put notices and things like “This site for use with Internet Explorer” at the bottom when they do interesting things like that.

    Hmm – can’t purchase .lit books unless the purchase is made using IE and Windows – I’d forgotten but this is why I don’t buy books from eHarlequin.

    Jane, what does that mean, exactly? There’s an IE tab in Firefox?

    I just splurged myself and bought almost 30 books. My plan is to pretend I’m gifting them for Christmas so I don’t feel so guilty. :P

    It’s a new Firefox addon that gives you an Internet Explorer Tab while running Firefox.

    That was fun! Five books for 11 bucks. I’ve been trying to get a little more series reading into my diet and that was a pretty painless way to do it. *g* Thanks for the heads up!

    Thanks, Jane. Because of you, I peeked at the site and discovered Luna released the third book in Christie Golden’s series as an ebook only, so of course I had to buy it. (Of course this is better than them not releasing it at all which is what I thought would happen.) And this only a couple days after I’d gone on about how I’d continue dragging my feet with ebooks and ebook readers.

    It’s working, Jane. I bought two Lynne Grahams and a Susan Napier for a song. I have a really negative impression of Presents and I’m going to see if these help to change my mind.
