15 Cheap Foodie eBooks and How to Find More

eBook fanatics unite! If you’re like me then you probably find it hard to resist those tempting eBook bargains that pop-up around the web each day. I honestly look forward to my Kindle Daily Deal email from way too much and I’m also a fan of sites like Books on the Knob and the eBook Lovers Facebook page. But let’s be honest a lot of free and low-priced books can be a bit hit or miss so you have to sort through them in order to find titles that truly interest you. Plus it’s really fun to wow your friends with deals you discover all on your own.

One quick trick I utilize for finding cheap Amazon ebooks (you know when I’m bored on my lunch break and have gotten sick of ogling the Jake Gyllenhaal tag on Tumblr) is to click through to a book I’m interested in that is currently on sale. Then I scroll down to the Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought section. Paging through these selections usually will yield books of a similar vein and generally a few cheap hidden gems will present themselves. Give it try!

What’s your favorite eBook bargain tale? I think mine was scoring Alicia Silverstone’s cookbook The Kind Diet for $2.99 as well as How to Eat by Nigella Lawson for $2.51 last winter.

To help you out on your eBook bargain hunt I’ve found a bunch of currently on sale titles for you to peruse.
