I Can't Resist a Sale

So the end result of the 90% off code at Kobo was that I ended up with 27 new books, regular price totalling $167.30, and I got them for $16.73.   It made me wonder if this was maybe an error on Kobo's part and they meant the code to be a one use only instead of multiple uses.  And if so, do they have to pay the original publisher/author royalties or whatever on the original price or what the books actually sold for.  And if it was a mistake - apparently the code was valid since February 24th until just after noon my time today - can you IMAGINE all the money they lost?  YIKES!!

So I completed the whole set of  Men of Honour by SE Jakes, books 2 & 3 of the Whyborne and Griffin books from Jordan L. Hawk, the first 3 Adrien English books by Josh Lanyon, books 2 & 3 of Moira Rogers' Southern Arcana as well as Book 2 of the Green Pine series, a couple of Josephine Myles books, a Kate McMurray, an Amy Lane, 3 Marie Sextons, the second Scorpion book by Aleksandr Voinov, the first Brothers Sinister by Courtney Milan, a volume of Garrett stories by Elizabeth Bear, a Rowan Speedwell and the second book in Rhys Ford's Sinners series as last but not least, Mockingbird and The Cormorant by Chuck Wendig.

It was one helluva sale.
