Unusually large discounts on books by Big 5 publishers - reported yesterday, still on sale today, Jan. 11, 2015.
Some of the discounted books posted on January 10 are no longer discounted tonight, so the ones below won't likely last long.
Although this is late reporting for yesterday, those of you reading the blog entry today who are interested in sudden and short-term discounted prices like these can try these tonight and maybe tomorrow (but they rarely last more than 1-2 days if the discounts are by the Big 5 publishers.
Thought it was worth noting, however, as most of the sales have not been as interesting the last few days. I included some non-Big5 because they were put on temporary discount and have good reviews.
Temporarily reduced - still available at reported prices as of 7pm PST Sunday night
