Welcome to a Reader’s Paradise!
So many of us believe in the adage: You get what you pay for.. That is true, but not always. A recent report from Digital Book World reveals that the average price for a top-25 bestselling book has fallen considerably, dropping from a high in October of $11.37 to $8.23. What’s that have to do with you? Everything! It’s never been a better time to be a reader. More people are writing books giving you, the reader, more choices, and since the prices are coming down, it means you get more bang for your book-buying buck. It’s a veritable reader’s paradise. And speaking of paradise, this is the last day to snag some great read from those authors who hang out at the Beach Book Blast site as well as being the last day to register to win the spectacular prizes they are giving away.
