With all the deals flying around lately, we know many of you have recently wrapped your fingers around a brand spanking new phone or tablet. Now comes the time to fill it with content. Just because the device likely came with Play Books pre-installed, that doesn't mean it's your only option for skimming through books. Amazon's massive collection of ebooks are only a click away, and now the company has announced its second annual 12 Days of Deals promotion. From now until December 14th, a selection of Kindle books will be offered with major discounts.
Each day brings in a different theme. Today's theme is "Best Books of 2013" and features Dona Tartt's The Goldfinch, Philipp Meyer's The Son, and Hannah Kent's Burial Rites - all for $2.99. Keep your eyes glued to the Kindle Daily Deals page to hit up the current discounts, and look for a new wave to roll in at 12:01 am PST each day.
Of course, Amazon's books require that you use its Kindle app. If you would prefer to use Play Books instead, don't fret, Google's 75% off Cyber Monday sale is still going on. Either way, don't let this time to catch up on all the books you missed go to waste.
