What’s a Bargain Book?

When it comes to ebooks, what constitutes a bargain? If you have looked at the prices of ebooks lately, you’ll see that it is not unusual for new releases to cost anywhere from $11.99 to $15.99 per title. YIKES! That’s a lot!

Even if you read genre fiction like mysteries, fantasy and romance, it is still typical for these ebooks to cost from $7.99 to $9.99. If you are an avid reader like I am, that adds up quickly. I joke that I have a $8 to $10 a day book habit, LOL!

Luckily for readers, most retailers offer daily, weekly and monthly sales on ebooks. It is not unusual to see titles from major publishers on sale for as little as $1.99 or $2.99. Sale prices of $3.99 to $4.99 on bestsellers are not uncommon.

If you like indie authors, your chances of finding bargain books are really good. Whether it is a new author starting out self publishing or a seasoned author who has gained control of their backlist titles, indie book offer some great reads at bargain pricing.

And best of all, there are quite a few sources of legal, free books available from a variety of sources.
