- has many good deals if you use their Bible Software. You may be able to get an additional discount (off the sale price) if you contact Ryan Roberts (firstname.lastname@example.org). For 5 FREE books click here (should be sorted by low price).
- The New American Commentary Studies in Bible & Theology Bundle is just $39.95 (maybe less if Pastor and contact Ryan above).
- The 91 volume Spurgeon collection is $79.95
- Through Nov. 30 you can get the NICOT/NICNT for the unheard of price of just $599.95. Just for comparison sake, the 43 volumes in print retail for over $2,000 and Logos sells it for around $1,800. For the half a dozen volumes I’m missing Logos wants $300! I could buy the entire set from Wordsearch for twice that! Additionally, if you own/use Bibleworks (from at least version 8 and maybe even version 7) this is usable within that program as well. A great deal!
- The 14 volume Gospel Advocate commentary is currently 49.95 (reg. $199.95).
- Wordsearch will also have one day sales on Black Friday and Cyber Monday at this link.
- New Growth Press has several books on a BOGO deal that are “Must Have’s” for your library, including Relationships: A Mess Worth Making, Long Story Short and Old Story New (Family Devotionals on the OT and NT – Can also be used for church groups and disicpling children).
- Banner of Truth’s Christmas Sale has begun. Print books up to 50% off here and ebooks here.
To get a free book summary and access to several other book summaries sign up here – you can subscribe to the service but you can also just get a free account and have limited access to reviews (print and maybe (?) some audio).
If you are looking for a way to keep your library organized I have used Book Collector for several years and though I think it could be tweaked in a few areas I have found it quite valuable. You can enter an ISBN number (or purchase a scanner) and it will find most books from internet searching and create a library for you. You can loan books, manage, books, input various field info (price, store purchased at, date read, location in library, etc.). I hear the updates coming in 2016 include scanning from your computer camera. Anyway, for someone with a decent sized library (multiple thousand books of which only half are in the database) I find it beneficial. The link is here and they have a sale for Black Friday.
