50% off on Bernie Rhodenbarr! easter8-top1a.jpg

Well, it’s May, a month that generally deserves every one of its thirty-one days. Don’t tell me about the floods and wildfires, the tornadoes and sinkholes, the hell and high water, the global unrest. We just got through the worst winter in memory, and I’ve got a pretty good idea what summer’s going to be like, so let’s enjoy May while it’s here.

And what better way to do so than in the good company of Bernie Rhodenbarr?  The Burglar Who Counted the Spoons has been selling briskly ever since its Christmas Day publication, and now it’s time to amp up the briskness by dropping the price. The ebook, a Kindle exclusive, has been reasonable enough at $9.99, but why be a slave to reason in the Merry Month of May?

We’ve cut the price to $4.99.

The trade paperback lists for $14.99. Last I looked, Amazon’s selling it for $12.64, a price only an algorithm could dream up. And, if you buy the printed book from Amazon, you can add the ebook through their MatchBook program for a mere $1.99.

Wait a minute. Are you trying to tell me I can get a $14.99 paperback and a $9.99 ebook for a total price of $14.63?

I know. It’s crazy, isn’t it? The only thing crazier would be to pass it up. We hope to hold the new low price at least through the end of the month, but there’s no guarantee, and you might want to act sooner rather than later.

On the Amazon page, you’ll see the book’s limited hardcover collector’s edition offered by third-party sellers at prices ranging from $94.95 to an optimistic $278.44. The book is gorgeous, and I wouldn’t dream of saying it’s not worth the money, but you can do better in LB’s eBay Bookstore, where we’ll happily sell you the book for $79.99, ship it to you free by Priority Mail, and toss in a signed paperback (reg.$16.99) at no charge.

Of course, if you’re itching to shell out $278.44, note that our bookstore offers 5-copy dealer lots for $274.99—with free shipping within the US.

The ebook sounds like a good deal at $4.99. But I’m a little short this month. Is there any way I can get it for less?

How does FREE strike you? If you’re an Amazon Prime member, you can eBorrow The Burglar Who Counted the Spoons and keep it as long as you want. You’re limited to one borrowed book per month—so why not make it one of mine?
