Goodreads recently implemented a new featured called Goodreads Deals [No Longer Available]. So not only is this website useful for discovering new books to read, now it can alert you when ebooks go on sale — ebooks that you’re personally interested in reading.
Here’s how it works:
- Select the genres you like to read.
- Add books to your “Want to Read” list.
- Follow your favorite authors.
- Whenever ebooks go on sale and they fit within the categories you’ve marked, you’ll be notified by email.
It’s really as simple as that. You can opt out of any of those categories if you aren’t interested in them.
Note that the genre option is currently limited to Bestsellers, Romance, Mystery & Thriller, and Fantasy & Science Fiction. That covers most of the selection in fiction, however, so don’t worry. Plenty of deals to be had.
These deals are available for ebooks sold through stores for Amazon Kindle, Apple iBooks, Barnes & Noble Nook, Google Play Books, and Kobo! So even though Goodreads is owned by Amazon, this isn’t a monopolistic move. Very cool.
If you’ve never used Goodreads before, this would be a great time to start. Get started with these essential tips for Goodreads newbies and take advantage of these advanced Goodreads tips when you’re comfortable.
