Summer sale of Kindle, Nook, and Kobo ebooks

An overview of end-of-summer ebook deals at major ebookstores. Most books are priced between $0.99 and $2.99. You can save up to 80%.

August is usually the time of back-to-school deals of all kinds, but you can also save money on favorite ebooks.

Major ebookstores – including Amazon’s Kindle Store, B&N Nook Store, and Kobo – run summer reading promotions, attractive enough to check out the offered titles.

Don’t expect top bestsellers, though. You can’t find J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Cursed Child or First Comes Love by Emily Giffin in the catalogs of discounted titles.

Instead, summer ebook deals include solid mid-list titles from most popular categories, with newly-released titles, as well as top-rated books.

Obviously, you can wait until Cyber Monday to pack your Kindle, Nook, or Kobo with tons of discounted titles, but why wait if you can save a lot right now? Plus, most certainly, the selection of books in November will be different.

Below, you’ll find a quick overview of current ebook deals at major ebookstores. Are any of these books on your summer reading list?

Summer Nook book sale

Summer Nook ebook sale

Barnes & Noble offered discounted Nook books in June. Now they are replaced with August Summer Reading Nook Book Sale.

There are 100 titles on the list. However, not all of them seem to be discounted. Such is The Paper Menagerie and Other Stories by Ken Liu, offered at a regular price of $7.99.

When you sort the result by price (from low to high), you’ll see the $0.99 book first. The other way to browse the cheapest books only is to select “Under $5” in the left-hand sidebar.

Among the most interesting books, there is Alis Franklin’s Liesmith, the first book from The Wyrd series that reimagines mythology for a modern world.

Summer Kobo ebook sale

Summer Kobo ebook sale

Kobo’s offer for summer is themed with a tagline Can’t miss books at can’t resist prices.

The exact number of featured titles is hard to find, but when I counted the lists in popular categories, it already makes a couple of hundred titles.

Kobo recommends First Kill by the bestselling author Robert Swartwood. A biomedical thriller by Pamela Callow, called Damaged, is a first book in the bestselling Kate Lange thriller series that has been loved by over a quarter of a million readers.

What’s also very attractive is the list of discounted Kobo ebook bundles. You’ll find here The Network Series by Katie Cross, and Mark McKay’s The Severance Trilogy.

Just a reminder that you can take part in Kobo summer contest in which you will have a chance to win the waterproof Kobo Aura H2O, as well as add up to $100 worth of credit to your account.
