BooksOnBoard Deep Discounts New Stephenie Meyer’s Bestseller to Advance eBooks


BooksOnBoard (, the premier ebook shop online, lowered the price of Stephenie Meyers’s new eBook, The Host, from a list price of $17.99 to $12.49, or $9.49 after the BooksOnBoard Rewards offer, a nearly 50% discount. The audio book price is also aggressively discounted at the retailer.

Meyer’s first plunge into books for adults, The Host arrived on “shelves” on May 5th. Meyer’s popular “Twilight” series for young adults earned her acclaim as the next J.K. Rowling.

“Stephenie’s fans will be delighted with this story,” according to Bob LiVolsi, president of BooksOnBoard, “We’re offering a deep discount on this title to introduce the public to the world of eBooks and downloadable audio books. We’re encouraging our customers to purchase the Mobipocket format which is currently the most flexible and very easy to use.”

USA Today’s Review says of The Host that it is “a startling and addictive Invasion of the Body Snatchers alien fest for the 21st epic story of love, family and loyalty. The novel has that element required of all human-vs.-predator dramas — a ragtag group of rebels who have somehow evaded the aliens.”

“Meyer’s storytelling reaches new heights with The Host,” says N.K. Johnson, author of the popular science work Texas Crawdads, “This book has it all: adventure, romance, aliens, and believable characters with many dimensions. It will leave fans eagerly anticipating the August release of Meyer’s next novel, Breaking Down.”

Stephenie Meyer’s popularity and epic storytelling led Time Magazine to list her as one of the 100 Most Influential People of 2008.
