Bloomsbury Reader Sale $1.99 each

Saw this on the Amazon forum Discount thread, and Miss Mitford very kindly posted this link:

Bloomsbury Reader

Looks like mostly backlog older mysteries: FHR Keating, Edmund Crispin, Marjorie Allingham, etc.

Edmund Crispin for $1.99 is not a bad deal.

I haven't read him, so a good time to try. It looks like they're putting at least one book by each author/series at $1.99, regular $7.99, so a good chance to try some new ones.

More books here.

Kobo Coupons work on these, and the code Bargainmoose40 for 40% off is still working.

How do you tell if a link has an affiliate code?

Any recommendations in the sale? On a whim, I picked up two by Edith Sitwell on Elizabethan times. I've never read her work before.

Take a look at this thread:

This is the affiliate thread that user arcadata starts each month. Any of their links contains their affiliate code.

Specifically the part of the link that says ?tag=arcadata-20 shows it to be an affiliate link.

It seems, for me in the US at least, that only a few of the Bloomsbury Reader mysteries are discounted at Kobo. Four HRF Keating ones seem to be discounted, but the Allingham, Crispin, and Blake ones show up at $7.99. (I stopped checking after that.)

Does Kobo usually take a while to mark the prices down on something like this? Or did I miss it already and the prices are going back up? I'd like to be able to use the Kobo coupon, but don't want to miss out on some of these if this was a very short time frame deal, and could go ahead and buy from Amazon. Any advice from anyone?

I picked up YA The Boy at the End of the World from Books on Board for $1.15 with promo code. It's available at Kobo for $1.19. Book received good reviews.

Actually both. When I first posted the Amazon deal Kobo hadn't brought their prices down. They had just brought them down when I posted their link, and now they have gone back up again. The only Allingham one that was on sale was The White Cottage Mystery, which is really just a novella, so you didn't miss much on that.

It's hard to say what they are doing when there is nothing at the Bloomsbury website about it (at least that I could see). In these situations we never know if it's a price reduction or a sale and if it is, how long it will last. If you want them I would go ahead and buy them at Amazon, as $1.99 is still a good price for most of them. In fact, I had already bought some from them when Kobo lowered their prices.

Yeah, there are a bunch of Bloomsbury Reader mysteries discounted on Amazon and Barnes&Noble, but not on Kobo (my reader of choice). There's no info on the website but there's something on the FB page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Bloom...00508&app_data

Crispin, Allingham, Keating and Blake!

For us Kobo folk, there are some other Keatings for $1.99:
