Barnes & Noble coupons are fabulous. I picked up Rick Riordan's second installment of the Percy Jackson series, The Sea of Monsters, when using one of those "get $10 off $50" coupons.
I've had at least three layovers in Amsterdam in my ten years of international travel. Each time someone mentioned Corrie Ten Boom and I nodded like I knew what they were saying, assuming she was just another person Baptists (sorry) liked to talk about when explaining missions and ministry. I was wrong. I completely admit that.
I've been searching for a new series to disappear into for quite some time, something on the Harry Potter or Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children level. I think I found it with Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series.
