Lots to choose from here. Not all the cheapest, but a number of new release (i.e., new Neil Gaimen) are among them.

Thanks for posting this. As you say, even at half price some of these are pricey. Last time they did this, I picked up book 1 of both The Wheel of Time and Ender series. I see both are on this list as well as a few of the later books. I picked up the second book in the Ender series at Google Play's sale earlier this week, so I may pick up book 3 of that series and book 2 of The Wheel of Time. Hmmm...

You know, I know a lot of people think romance novels are interchangeable (no more so than fantasy or mystery novels), but usually publishers try to at least make sure the cover models *in the same series* don't look the same...I only noticed these because I think this is a shot of Andie McDowell, the actress, or a look-a-like.

16 Lighthouse Road versus 44 Cranberry Point (both in the Cedar Cove series).

EDITED TO ADD: Hmm, there are more like this in the same series. So now I'm thinking this really *was* intentional (but weird). So...move along...nothing to see here after all.

They're tie-in covers for the TV series she's staring in based on the books.

I wondered about that. Andie McDowell on the cover of all of Debbie Macomber's novels?

Good eye. A word of caution, though... Be sure to add the books to your cart from the sale page as the individual product pages still show the full price. The ones I wanted from the B&N sale aren't on Sony's list, but there are a couple on Sony's list that I might be willing to pay $2 for.

Ha - thank you for this thread and letting me know I wasn't the only one puzzled by the Andie McDowell thing...

Looks like Sony fixed the prices on the product pages. I didn't bother to compare the titles in this list to the sale at Google Play until after I paid $2.99 for Angels & Demons this morning.

I'm getting full price, even when adding from that page . Wish I could get it to work (tried three different browsers) as there are three books I'd like to get.

They may have fixed the price on the product page, but it still shows full price in the cart no matter how you add it to the cart - I tried both the product page and the button on the sale page. They have no phone or chat support after 8:00 pm on Saturday, and their email support looks like it is only for devices - they require your model number so I don't know if I should bother trying.

I tried two PC browsers and two Android and none of them worked. I was also looking at three books.

I even just tried using my 950 and the price on the page showed 1.99 but the cart had 11.66!

I seem to keep posting at the same time as others tonight! I just edited my post above when you posted this - I even just tried using my 950 and the price on the page showed 1.99 but the cart had 11.66!

I just tested as well and am seeing the same thing. Doh! Maybe it's a good thing I DID buy from Google Play. It was definitely working earlier when I added from the sale page even though the product page was showing full price.
