When we buy something, we often compare the product's price between different stores. As to ebooks,we can also do that. Thanks to Epubor Ultimate Converter, now we can buy ebooks from anywhere and read them in any device. But with so many famous book sellers such as Amazon Kindle store, Barnes & Noble, Google Play, Kobo, iBooks etc, Where should I buy the books? How can we track the ebook price and find the lowest price to buy?
Or, as we know, Amazon often change their ebook price, when should I buy a book on Kindle store? I think that we all have such experience like the price drops when we just bought something one or two days later. The feeling is so disgusting and we don't want it happens again.
Fortunately, there are some powerful online service can help us compare ebook prices and get price drop notifications. With these tools, we can always choose the best time and the best place to buy ebooks. What's more, it's all for free.
In my opinion, Luzme is the most powerful tool to track the ebook prices, like their slogan said:" Never, Ever Pay Full-Price For An Ebook Again!" After using this service, we can always find the lowest price to buy books.
It's very easy to use, you don't need to have an account, just simply type the book or the author's name, then it will show the price between different stores and even in different countries. For example, we select "The Good Girl" wrote by Mary Kubica to search in Luzme. See the pictures as below:
You can find the amazon?Google?Apple?Kobo's price is $4.99 while Barnes&Noble?Ominit is $8.99, and even amazon's price had changed regularly.
Although you can use Luzme without registering, I still highly recommend you sign up an accout, and then you can add your favorite books to your watch list. When the price drops, you will receive a notification from Luzme. Not only that, Luzme also have these functions:
- Get notifications when your favorite author releases a new book.
- Follow the watch list from Amazon, Goodreads and LibraryThing.
- Choose different countries and different stores to watch.
You can choose the preference in "My Settings":
In summary, you give the book, Luzme notices you the best place and the best time to buy it.
