BooksForABuck.com Newsletter--March, 2010
News and Events
- Welcome to the March edition of the BooksForABuck.com newsletter.
Paying too much for eBooks? The big publishers are fighting back against Amazon's $9.99 eBook strategy, demanding that their books sell for more. Is this fair? I don't know but I do know I like a bargain. Which is why BooksForABuck.com prices its novels at incredibly reasonable prices. And remember, for the first month after their release, each new book is available for a buck.
