    OK, that's an odd one.

    Wow, this one's even available in Canada! Thanks for the heads-up, @JD !

    It's not a novel, but it looks like the ebook of Star Trek: The Next Generation 365 is $3.99 in the Canadian Kobo store... but not the Canadian Kindle store? Not sure what the price is in the US Kindle store, since Amazon seems to show different prices depending on IP address.

    Nice. Thanks for the heads up. Now I have to get them, even if I have no idea when I'll get around to reading them.

    This is a great thread. I don't read using the kindle much, but will be traveling later this month and I think I am going to go through many of the ebooks I need to read and see what the prices are, etc. Oh, I'll bring a couple of my paperbacks, but only so much room in luggage.

    This is part of another round of monthly eBook sales during the summer it seems:

    http://www.startrekbooks.com/c/ebookpromojuly2017?intcmp=ihp_bb&cp_date=istb_bb_07052017_stebpr

    Since they mention the release of Desperate Hours as "the reason", I assume these will run until September, so two more month I guess,

    It's great that they're doing this again! Too bad it's only for the summer.

    The story of Michael Burnham spending 120 minutes frantically looking for a spell-checker.

    Glad to see the cheaper sales coming. Picked up everything that has gone on sale this year, trying to expand my collection.

    The real question is why rise like lions and children's of kings are suddenly 12 quid each on kindle in the U.K.

    It looks like the $1.99 deals for August are the three books under the I.K.S. Gorkon banner:

    http://www.startrekbooks.com/c/ebookpromoaugust2017

    These prices are already in effect today at the Canadian Kobo store and the Canadian Kindle store.

    It's great to see some KRAD love, but it's a little unfortunate that they couldn't have included A Burning House, which is really the fourth book of the series even though it was released under a different banner.

    Also, I already got these when they were part of the 50th anniversary sale last year. While it would have been nice to have some books in the sale that had never been $1.99 before, I can sort of understand why they picked these ones, since Klingons play a significant role in the upcoming Discovery.

    Yeah, I got those during the 50th Anniversary sale too. If they wanted to have Klingon books as the August sale books there are plenty of other Klingon heavy books that weren't already part of a sale.

    I came in during the tail end of last years sale, glad to have the chance to pick up the IKS Gorkon books at a great price.

    They are digital comics rather than e-books, but I think they're close enough. IDW is doing a big sale on all, or at least most of their comics going from now until 8/31/17. I saw the sale on Comixology, but usually they do them at the other stores that sell digital comics like Amazon, and Google Prime.

    It also looks like there are some books rotating on sale. I bookmarked a bunch at 5 bucks a week ago, checked back today and they were back up to 10, but a lot of different ones were at 5.
