Her most recent book, The Year of the Flood, has been internationally acclaimed as one of the best books of the year by big names in the industry such as The Globe and Mail, The New York Times, The New Yorker and others. The story focuses on two women who have survived a man-made epidemic that has destroyed human life.

A fallen boxer.
A woman with a broken dream.
A competition…

Though originally priced at $4.15, the above coupon reduces it to a mere 83 cents and with overwhelmingly positive reviews stating that this novel deserves a million stars instead of just five, the price is more than incredible!

Dave Chilton's The Wealthy Barber ReturnsUndoubtedly, good financial planning is one of the keys to success and books such as Dave Chilton’s The Wealthy Barber has been hailed as one of the best personal finance books as it presents easy to understand information in the digestible form of a story about a father getting advice from a barber.

Though unlike his 1989 book, Chilton has followed up the series with a second book: The Wealthy Barber Returns. While it’s unnecessary to read the first one in order to enjoy this one, it’s certainly worth at least a glance through, especially since it has been praised as better.

Dan Brown infernoWhile the majority of people are familiar with The Da Vinci Code, especially in its big screen format starring Tom Hanks, not many are aware that Angels & Demons was actually the first in the series.

I’m not a big fan of romance books, in fact I think I’ve never even read one! So I did some research about this intriguing world and here are a few facts that I found on ehow.com:

  • Half of the books printed and distributed in North America are romance novels
  • They come in hundreds of different themes including Christian, vampire, cowboy, futuristic, medical, single parents, etc.
  • It is a misconception to think that the stories are old fashioned and that the female characters are all virgins–wow!
  • They are the most popular type of fiction book and are now popular in 120 countries.

Even if I’m considered out of the ‘young adult’ category, I still enjoy some of the books listed. By quickly browsing some of the top bestsellers at the moment, I noticed there were a ton of fantasy themed novels like The Awakening from the Darkest Powers trilogy. I have a friend that keeps going on and on about this book and how awesome it is; I think I might just pick it up. Just because Kobo thinks that the books are for young adults it doesn’t mean they are only for the youngsters, it’s more like this is a starting age—I say this to justify my own passion for popcorn-esc books.

Pile of booksKeep in mind, however, that some publishers have restrictions on certain books; hence why sometimes you can’t apply a code to it. Out of over 6000 titles to choose from, however, you should be able to find a great book to read…. or three.
