NOOK Sale on Katie Weldon Series by Robin Jones Gunn

If you have a young lady in your house, you will want to grab this deal.  Or if you, like me, have read the Christy Miller series by Robin Jones Gunn in the past, you will want to grab this deal.  The Katie Weldon series by Robin Jones Gunn is on sale for NOOK right now.

Readers got to know and love Katie in the Christy Miller series and now Katie has her own series.  The series starts at Christy and Todd's wedding.  Katie is entering her senior year in college and becomes an RA,  a resident assistant, at her college Rancho Corona University.  In this series, you still get to see old friends such as Christy, Todd, Rick, Doug, Tracey, and even Aunt Marti.  This series will take you through Katie's senior year in college and after.  The first three books in the series are a great price at $.99.  The fourth book, Finally and Forever, was published in April of this year and it's on sale too! Although it is a much higher price of $4.99.  But since you could not get the book for below $8.99 before now, it is still a good deal.  So for less than eight dollars, you can have the whole series delivered to you NOOK.  I have the links below if you want to purchase them.  Make sure you check the prices before you hit "buy now" because we don't know when this sale will end.

If you haven't read anything by Gunn before, she is a great author for women young and old.  She has clean romances, her books always point to God (sometimes directly, other times indirectly), she is never preachy, and her books are always fun.

Spoiler Alert

One final note, if you are planning on getting the books, make sure you buy the last book, Finally and Forever, without reading the description on the Barnes and Noble page.  It tells what happens at the end of Book 3, Coming Attractions.  And you will want to read that book without knowing how it's going to end.

Peculiar Treasures $.99

On a Whim  $.99

Coming Attractions  $.99

Finally and Forever  $4.99

Free NOOK Books for Friday

Today we have one nonfiction NOOK book and three fiction ones.  The fiction ones are repeats, so you may already have them.  As always, please check the price before you hit the "Download Now" button since  I cannot guarantee how long these books will be free.

Marta Perry Daily Find and Free Book

Today, Barnes and Noble featured Marta Perry's Land's End as the Daily Find.  Land's End is part of the Love Inspired Suspense line.  The price is $1.55, which is 55% off the regular price.  This is the plot summary from Barnes and Noble:  "Dr. Sarah Wainwright is driven to find the answers to her husband's mysterious death -- in an apparent lovers' tryst with the wife of Trent Donner, the secretive industrialist with power the thwart Sarah's search for the truth."

There is another Marta Perry book, which has been free for a long time, so you probably have it.  However, I will provide the link below in case you don't.  Hide in Plain Sight is also part of the Love Inspired Suspense line and it takes place in the Amish community.  If you are a fan of Amish fiction, you will want to make sure you have this one.  

Remember that Daily Finds prices are only good for one day.  And we can't guarantee that even though Hide in Plain Sight has been free for a long time that it will continue to be so.  So make sure you get the books while they are still at these great prices and don't forget to check the price before you hit the buy now or download now button.

Melody Carlson $.99 Teen Book Sale

As mentioned in a different post, Melody Carlson is a prolific writer.  She writes for kids, tweens, teens, and women.  Today (and hopefully longer) Zondervan has marked down the prices on the NOOK books in two of Melody's teen series.

The first is a series for girls who love fashion and/or reality television shows.  It's called On the Runway.  In this series of six books two sisters, Paige and Erin Forrester get a chance to have their own reality show.  Readers will get a fun look at fashion and a look at what really happens behind the scenes of reality shows.  Carlson weaves messages of faith throughout these books.

The second series is The Carter House Girls.  This series also involves fashion.  But instead of a reality show, this one takes place in a boarding house for teenage girls.  The girls who get to live their do so because they have a lot of promise in the fashion industry.  But this series is more than fashion.  It's problems that all teen girls face:  boyfriends (or lack thereof), friendships, peer pressure, but it's also about God and faith.

I have not read any books from either series, but I have looked at reviews and it seems that Christian teen girls love it.  Some of the parents are not pleased with the fact that there are subjects such as alcohol in the book.  But as we all know, many teenage girls will have to face these decision before they leave high school and it's no longer just at parties.  So in my opinion, without reading the books, this probably will be a good thing for teenagers to read.  I have read Carlson before, and she has sound biblical doctrine in her books and I have not been disappointed by her writing.  However, moms may want to read the same book as their daughter so they can have a conversation about them.  Below I have listed the links to books in both series.

Janice Thompson: Affordable Options for Christian Reaers

If you are looking for a fun author with different NOOK books at great prices, you should try Janice Thompson.  She has written almost 80 Christian  books in different genres including light-hearted romance, historicals, cozy mysteries, devotionals, nonfiction, and children's books, although not all of them are currently available on NOOK.  She is a fun author that many women like because her Janice tries to infuse laughter in her writing.   Janice Thompson also writes under the name Janice Hanna, and has books under both names for you NOOK.  

For readers on a budget, Janice has many options.  She has offered her book Fools Rush In, which is the first book in the Wedding By Bella series, for a long time now.  Most readers probably have it already on NOOK, although I am including the link below just in case you overlooked it.  When you look up Janice's books (remember the two different names to look under) you will see many affordable price points including one right now for $.99 and some at 2.99.  If that's not enough, many are below the $6.00 mark.  Her newest book, The Director's Cut came out this month and is still affordable at $10.19.

As if that's not enough, Janice loves to help writers in their craft.  She teaches them how to make money writing.  She teaches many courses at including fiction and nonfiction writing.  She also periodically offers free webinars through the same website.  So you may want to sign up for the newsletter if you think you may be interested in her writing courses or free webinars.

So if you are looking for a women's fiction with laughs, try Janice.  If you are looking for devotionals about topics like joy or divorce, try Janice.  If you want a NOOK book for preteen girls, try Janice.  You will find what you want and not destroy your budget.  Below you will find links to a couple of the books mentioned above and their current prices.

The Director's Cut  by Janice Thompson - $10.19

NOOK Daily Find for Friday $3.99

Today only, NOOK is offering Melody Carlson's River's Song for only $3.99.  River's Song is the first book in the Inn at Shining Waters series.  From the Barnes & Noble description of River's Song:

"Sometimes when we look back, we are able to see ahead
Following her mother's funeral, and on the verge of her own midlife crisis, widow Anna Larson returns to the home of her youth to sort out her parents' belongings, as well as her own turbulent life.
For the first time since childhood, Anna embraces her native heritage, despite the disdain of her vicious mother-in-law. 
By transforming her old family home on the banks of the Siuslaw River into The Inn at Shining Waters, Anna hopes to create a place of healing-a place where guests experience peace, grace, and new beginnings. Starting with her own family . . ."

Melody Carlson is a prolific writer.  She has written for kids, teens, and adults (mainly women), and many different genres.  As a reader, I have rarely been disappointed with one of her books.  I have enjoyed her Christmas stories, her chick-lit, and her women's fiction.  I have not read River's Song but imagine it will be a great read.  Get it today, because the NOOK Daily Finds are only good for 24 hours.

Everyday, Barnes and Noble offers one NOOK book for a great price for one day only.  Today, they are offering a Christian book called What Difference Do it Make?  Stories of Hope and Healing by Ron Hall, Denver Moore, and Lynn Vincent.  This is the follow up book to the New York Times bestseller Same Kind of Different As Me.  According the the reader reviews, it's better for you if you read the first book, but you can pick up on the story line if need be.  I haven't read What Difference Do it Make?  because I have just started Same Kind of Different As Me.  But what I have read so far in the first book makes me want to read the second book also.  Remember to pick up the book today.  It's marked down from $15.99 to 2.99.   If you are reading this on a day after Monday, go ahead and check the price, sometimes they offer the book at the reduced rate for an small but extended period of time after the first day.

Edited to Add:  Looking at the website, I noticed that Barnes and Noble are offering Same Kind of Different As Me currently for $7.50.  As noted in my other posts, check the price before you buy, but I have included the link below if you want the first book.
