So if you’re a retro-chic like me, you’ll be thrilled to discover that Barnes & Noble is having a “Great Reads” sale, with over 200 books for the bargain price of $2.99 each. Many of these are recent hardcover bestsellers which normally retail for $25 and up–an 88% savings! And, ironically, that’s about 1/3 the price of the digital editions.
Of course, everyone has his or her own tastes in books, but here are several finds that I will be adding to my cart:
- Smokin’ Seventeen by Janet Evanovich
- Full Dark, No Stars, by Steven King
- I’ll Mature When I’m Dead: Dave Barry’s Amazing Tales of Adulthood
As a disclaimer, the website notes that these “bargain books” may contain a mark identifying it as publisher’s overstock (typically a small black mark on the edges of the pages or a small hole punched in the corner). However, they are brand new and undamaged.
