Books N More (April 4)

Catch The Gospel Coalition (TGC) live today through the end of the conference here. In conjunction with the conference check out the Zondervan ebook sale until April 9th here. Books are up to 70% or more off.

The new monthly deals are out – here’s some of them.

Fortress Press ebook Sale with 800 books under $5. Includes N.T. Wright, Bonhoeffer, Brueggemann, Walter Wink, etc. Go here.

Logos March Madness sale with up to 70% off Doulas Moo’s works here.

WORDsearch Buy 1 Get 1 Sale continues until April 10th and has added 10 more options.

Tim Challies blog has several more kindle sales listed here.

A note on ebooks and platforms:

  • Purchase based on how you use the books. If you just “read” then kindle editions are probably the best bet for most items. If you research or purchase books with lots of footnotes the best bet is probably not kindle. I find myself regularly in the dilemma of which format to purchase. For instance, currently The Practice of Prophetic Imagination by Walter Brueggemann is on sale in kindle for $4.99 while Logos has it as part of their March Madness for $11.99.
  • I’ve purchased enough books in kindle to realize that study bibles or commentaries with lots of footnotes (I actually read the footnotes) are not much fun to use in kindle. This has caused me to decide to mostly not buy commentaries or study bibles in kindle (though I’ve already purchased many!). Instead I wait until they are on sale or purchase them in a package deal with Logos. This makes my study time much more enjoyable. Brueggemann’s book on the other hand is probably just a “reading” book and thus is probably fine in kindle.
  • Just my thoughts – hope that helps some.
