Welcome to Bookish News with Tamie and Elena. Let’s see what caught our eye this past week and what we’re looking forward to…
Tamie: There’s some very cool news from Kristen Ashley especially if you love listening to books. This comes via her latest Rock Chick News email and here’s what it said:
“Rock Chick is in audio!
The entirety of the Rock Chick series has been released in audio. Yes, you read that right, the whole series is now available to whisper (or shout, however you like it) in your ears.
And get this, if you already own the Kindle version, you can get the audio version for $1.99. I was gabbing with the folks at Audible and they were telling me a bunch of stuff, then they gave me that nugget. I had no idea, and I was all…”Wha!? An audio book for $1.99?” If you don’t know audio, trust me, that’s a deal.
So if you dig yourself some audio and you want Lee, Eddie, Hank, Vance, Luke, Mace, Hector, and Ren in your ear, just click one of the links below.
** Audible (http://www.audible.com/series/ref=a_pd_Romanc_c2__1_sa?asin=B00J549VS4)
(and if you become a member, you get deals!)
** Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=rock%20chick%20kristen%20ashley&sprefix=rock+chick+k%2Caps&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Arock%20chick%20kristen%20ashley)
for your-already-owned Kindle deal”
Holy crap! What a great deal. I noticed that other books give you a huge discount on the audio version if you own it on Kindle as well. So start looking for that if you want to own both.
Elena: And E. L. James announced some amazing news this week!! The first trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey The Movie will be released July 24!!! I know, I know, I was screaming when I saw the news as well. Squeeing and swooning will be happening worldwide, I’m sure 😉
Tamie: HA! I agree Elena…I think it’s gonna be amazing and I can’t wait to see it!!!
Elena: A little less than a month and we’ll be able to have UGLY LOVE by Colleen Hoover in our hands! It releases August 5. Colleen is giving away lots and lots of Ugly Love copies. If you are on instagram or twitter you can like or RT this picture to enter the chance to win a copy. I can’t wait to meet Miles already 😉
Tamie: She’s a favorite of both of ours, and there is no doubt in my mind that this will be another fantastic story for us to love. She’s definitely one of my go-to authors, and I also love how giving she is to her followers. She shows her appreciation for her success in many ways, and I really admire her so much.
Elena: If you’re on Goodreads, I’m sure you’ve heard about this great cause, which I think all of us should participate in. All we have to do is read. A donor for World Education is matching every page we read with $1 toward the nonprofit’s educational mission. Founded in 1951, World Education now operates educational projects, including outreach for girls’ education, in 22 countries. We all can make a difference.
Tamie: Thanks for sharing that Elena. It’s wonderful when we’re able to pass on news that can have a positive impact on those that really need it.
Just a reminder that you won’t want to miss our posts for Thursday, July 17th. We’ll have the interview between Sylvain Reynard and Morgan and Jennifer Locklear which I can’t wait to share with all of you. It will include a giveaway which is being hosted by Argyle Empire. AND…we’ll also have a really fun surprise for you. You love good surprises right?!? Yeah…me too 🙂
FYI…we’re postponing our Book Chat til next week but our giveaway for a print set of Easy and Breakable is still going on for another 12 hours. If you haven’t entered yet don’t put it off.
Enjoy your day/evening everyone!
Tamie and Elena
