Students! Amazon wants your business! Know why? Because you’re on your way. Education is power. The power to make money. Ergo, the power to spend money. That makes you a Future Consumer. And Amazon loves future consumers. Enough to give you special discounts to say thank you for going to school and getting an education so one day you can make a lot of money and buy things from Amazon.

It’s the circle of life. Kind of.

3 heroic book deals to capture your imagination! (Your wallet has never been safer.)

It almost goes without saying that this was also a New York Times bestseller, straight out of the gate. It’s only $1.99 today, so don’t miss it!

83% off Gears of War Aspho Fields – the military sci-fi prequel to the blockbuster games!

83% off Gears of War Aspho Fields – the military sci-fi prequel to the blockbuster games!

Gears of War Aspho Fields, by Karen Traviss

$1.99 Kindle Sale ($11.99)

Gaming. Yeah, we’ve dabbled. From Tuesday raids in World of Warcraft to Friday clan nights in Call of Duty, there’s nothing like fighting the good fight with 5 to 40 of your best friends chilling in voice chat. But if you watched any of the E3 broadcasts this year, you’ll know there are few fandoms as enthusiastic as the Gears of War crowd. Gears 5, Gears Pop!, Gears Tactics… the screams just kept coming. Gears readers will be glad to know the franchise is producing books as fast as it is gaming titles. If not faster.

Aspho Fields is the official prequel, which has us pretty stoked. We’ve always been suckers for backstory. Action and danger are so much more powerful when you’re invested in the characters, and that’s just as true for games as it is for books. Imagine how much richer the gaming experience would be if we went into it knowing the characters inside and out already. How much more thrilling the victories, and how much more heart wrenching the losses. Sounds intense, right? We think so, too, and now’s our chance to find out.

Pick up Gears of War Aspho Fields for just $1.99 for a limited time!

Altered Carbon only $2.99 – the book, and our take on the Netflix series

Altered Carbon only $2.99 – the book, and our take on the Netflix series

Altered Carbon, by Richard K. Morgan

$2.99 Kindle Sale ($11.99)

We discovered this story through the Netflix series, Altered Carbon, which is probably different from the book in a lot of ways. (Isn’t it always!) Still, we were impressed by the series, and we fully expect to feel the same way about the book–a New York Times bestseller–which we just bought for less than the price of a cup of coffee. (We might not live in the age of immortality yet, but you sure can’t beat the entertainment.)

Get the deal!

But Wait! Are There MORE Hogwarts Mystery Easter Eggs???

But Wait! Are There MORE Hogwarts Mystery Easter Eggs???

Guys! So, we got this comment on our Hogwarts Mystery Easter eggs post today…

I think I found another Easter egg: in the list (of who has collected how many house points) there’s a very special name: Chloe Price. It could be an allusion to “Life is Strange”.

And it got us thinking…

Are there secret Easter egg names from other fandoms hidden in the game?

Free Energy – Hidden Easter Eggs in Hogwarts Mystery!

Ah, Easter eggs: the hidden treasures that game designers hide for us to find and love, and Hogwarts Mystery has plenty!

(Hey, that’s just how we roll.) So here we go!

Best Trick Ever: Free Gems, Free Gold, Fast Leveling, and Free Energy for Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery!

Best Trick Ever: Free Gems, Free Gold, Fast Leveling, and Free Energy for Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery!

EDIT: It looks like this trick has been patched and won’t work anymore in Hogwarts Mystery. (It was bound to happen eventually.) We’re leaving the post up because the basic idea is worth trying in any of your favorite games that give random rewards. It’s a pretty common loophole in mobile gaming.


I’ve been playing Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery for a few days now, and I admit I love it. Like, I LOVE it. But it has the same problem as every other phone game. You get to play 5 minutes, and then you have to wait an hour or two before you can do anything else!

Ugh! Makes me feel like:
