More Bargains: Pratchett's Discworld and Pathfinder by Orson Scott Card

First of all, there isn't a cover image but the first Discworld novel, The Color of Magic with Bonus Material: A Discworld Novel, by Terry Pratchett is a $.99 preorder as an ebook. Great price! Too bad I already owned this one on my Kindle...

From the internationally bestselling author who brought us Ender’s Game, a brand-new series that instantly draws readers into the dystopian world of Rigg, a teenager who possesses a secret talent that allows him to see the paths of people’s pasts. Rigg’s only confidant is his father, whose sudden death leaves Rigg completely alone, aside from a sister he’s never met. But a chance encounter with Umbo, another teen with a special talent, reveals a startling new aspect to Rigg’s abilities, compelling him to reevaluate everything he’s ever known. Rigg and Umbo join forces and embark on a quest to find Rigg’s sister and discover the true depth and significance of their powers. Because although the pair can change the past, the future is anything but certain….
