Here are some book recommendations for the Black Friday shopper out there on the interwebs. Instead of my usual "three books" post, I'm just throwing up some cool deals for books/series/authors that I enjoy and letting you guys go to town.
Sid Meier's Civilization: Beyond Earth - $24.99 - What's this doing here? It's not a book! Well too bad, because it's my blog. Civ: BE has gotten mixed reviews but I know a lot of people have been waiting for it to go on sale to give it a try. Personally, I'm a big fan and since it's 50% off, you should hop on.
Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn Boxed Set - $15.00 - The Mistborn Trilogy in mass market paperback. It's a staple fantasy read these days, and this would make a great gift for the budding fantasy reader.
Brandon Sanderson's Words of Radiance ebook - $3.75 - The second book in Brandon's Stormlight Archive mega-series. Good time to grab it if you've read the first and been waiting to get this one. Or get them both together. Way of Kings is only $7.68.
Sam Syke's City Stained Red ebook - $1.99 - Sam is a friend and fellow Orbit author, and this book is the first in his new series. I loved it enough to give it a blurb.
James S.A. Corey's Cibola Burns ebook - $3.75 - The latest in the Expanse series. The best space opera has to offer. Seriously, I love this series and if you haven't started reading it yet you should do so now. Book one, Leviathan Wakes, is just $5.99.
