If you’re a bit of a bookworm, you definitely need to take advantage of this amazing deal from Kobo Books. By using the coupon code “welcome90us” (simply switch out the ‘us’ depending on your location, like ‘ca’, ‘au’, uk’) on check out, you’ll get 90% off the website price. So the Hunger Games Trilogy for instance, selling for $26.98, will be reduced to $2.70 before taxes! The caveat is that it’ll only work once per account AND on non-agency books. While there’s no section specifically for non-agency books on the kobo website, they can typically be spotted by ebooks prices that end in something other than ‘.99’ (i.e $26.98 or $9.87) or if the ebook shows 2 prices (i.e ‘List Price’ and ‘Our ‘Price’). Other coupon codes that currently work include:
Shadowgun (TMA Review), one of the best third person shooters on iOS, has just been updated to support the new iPad’s 2048×1536 resolution.

Meanwhile for other iDevice owners, this splendid shooter has received some minor bug fixes to improve upon the overall experience. The update is free for those who’ve already purchased the game, otherwise, Shadowgun can now be had for only $2.99 (down from $4.99).
