FYI - Google Play is about to have a huge sale (multiple days)

Quote:
Every day you’ll be able to choose from a collection of apps from some of the world’s top developers including Gameloft, Electronic Arts, Rovio, runtastic, Full Fat and more. And all for just 25 cents. We’ll also be offering some special collections like 25 movies you must own, 25 banned books, 25 albums that changed the world and our 25 top selling magazines, all at special prices. Visit Google Play a little later today to check them out.

Twenty-five billion is more than twice the distance, in miles, that the Voyager 1 spacecraft has travelled since its launch 35 years ago. It’s the amount of time, in minutes, that have passed since some of our earliest ancestors began to set foot in Europe. And now, thanks to all of you, it’s a Google Play milestone. We look forward to the next 25 billion.
Amazon will probably price match everything, so be on the lookout.

Maybe for some things, but I just checked several of the books and price is not matched. I reported this and hopefully prices will drop. I would be interested in some of these.

Yes, of course there are the apps and browser forgot to mention those. I didn't mention PDF because of the 33 books in my account (not counting a few public domain freebies) only one has PDF as a download option.

The .99 Banned Books are a fantastic bargain - all modern classics. It took a bit to figure it out, but then it was simple to download my 17 purchases to Adobe Digital Editions and then to my Nook. Had I purchased them at Amazon or Barnes & Noble the bill would have been about $140.

Thanks Nightbird that's handy to know I can not access the US book list on Google Play but I do have a bit of credit left on my US amazon account so if they're matching I may pick up any that interest me.

Did Google allow them to be put into a cart, or did you have to make 17 separate purchases? My CC company gets upset about multiple under-a-dollar purchases, and I hate to alarm them unduly!
