99 Cent Books to Start the New Year!

Great Savings on Ebooks!

Grace's Pictures by Cindy Thomson

Book One, Ellis Island Series

What better way to start 2017 than with a great deal on some ebooks? My publisher has Grace’s Pictures on sale all month, along with some other great reads. Only 99 cents in January! Click here for the deal.

Grace’s Pictures is the first book of the Ellis Island series, so if you haven’t gotten started, now’s a great time.

But Wait, There’s More!

Sofia's Tune by Cindy Thomson

Book Three, Ellis Island Series

There is also a sale on Sofia’s Tune (book 3 in the Ellis Island series.) But you have to hurry with this one. The price is 99 cents for a couple of days, then goes up to 1.99 for a few days, and then back to its regular price of 2.99, which seriously is still a good deal.

A Light Look at Print vs Ebook

Which do you prefer? Print or ebooks? I get that question a lot. You might too. My answer is both, and I absolutely do enjoy reading both ways. I was thinking…what are the pros and cons? So I decided to make a list. Tell me what you think.

But, before I get to the list, I want to make sure you know I can sign ebooks. Did you know? Just go to this link:
You’ll see all of my books listed. All you do is click on one, send me a message and I’ll respond and you’ll get my autograph along with a personalized message sent to your device. Pretty cool! I’ve requested a few from authors I’ve read. Have you done this yet? It’s absolutely FREE! 🙂

Okay, my list:

Print Books

  • People will actually see what you’re reading and you’ll look pretty cool with that copy of the latest bestseller or academic tome under your arm.

  • You’ll build muscles while reading Harry Potter.

  • You’ll have something to fill all those book bags you get from every convention and trade show you go to.

  • Bookshelves look better in your home than a nearly empty shelf with a Kindle on it.
  • Even when you’re napping you’ll look smarter holding a book.
  • A real book smells so much better than an ebook.
  • For me, it’s easier to thumb through and find something.


  • People can’t see what you’re reading, so whether you’re reading Menopause for Dummies or Fifty Shades of Gray, no one will judge you.

  • You’ll save room on your bookshelves for the souvenirs you picked up on your last vacation.

  • If you fall asleep reading you won’t drop a heavy book on your toes.
  • You can instantly look up words you aren’t familiar with. (One of my favorite things!)
  • If you change your mind about highlighting something, it’s much easier to erase it.
  • You can get your author’s favorite book instantly on the first day it’s available.

So, what about you? Ebook or print book?

In fairness to all, my new book, Grace’s Pictures, is available both in print and ebook formats. 🙂
