Don’t forget Google Books when you’re hunting bargains

Google Play Books

The focus for a lot of users in terms of Google Play is apps and movies, sadly for them they’re missing out on some fantastic bargains. I often explore the Play Store and just “duck in” to Google Books with good intentions of merely seeing the list of new release books and find very quickly I’ve spent $15 or $20 and grabbed a few books for the collection.

One recommendation I can’t push enough if you’re into suspense is to pick up Stephen King’s masterpiece; The Stand which is currently being (virtually) thrown out for AU$4.74

With a collection of over 70 titles available on Google Books, Stephen King readers like myself are happy little campers when specials pop up like this.

What bargains have you picked up on Google Books?

I’m a happy camper with Google Books. I usually use my lunchtime to read. On Freakonomics at the moment which is quite fascinating. Prior to that I devoured the Millennium Trilogy and Odd Thomas series.


I always check it before buying books. Unfortunately, Amazon still seems to be a tad cheaper.
