50%-Off Sale on All Take Control Ebooks

by Adam C. Engst

It has been some time since we’ve had a big Take Control sale, and today’s introduction of Bookle gives us a good excuse, so you can get more DRM-free EPUBs to read in Bookle (see “Introducing Bookle, an EPUB Reader for Mac OS X [1],” 6 February 2012).

To take advantage of this limited-time sale, visit the Take Control catalog using this coupon-loaded link [2], select the titles you want, and click the Buy Selected Ebooks button. You’ll see the coupon code and the 50-percent discount on the first screen of the cart. The sale runs through 15 February 2012.

Recent Mac-focused titles that you might want to check out include:

And for those looking for iPad or iPhone help, other recent releases include:

Note that the Take Control cart gives you zipped PDFs to download. To download EPUB versions of purchased Take Control ebooks (or recent Macworld Superguides) for reading in Bookle, log in to your Take Control account [3] and click the green EPUB icon next to the book you want to download. Alternatively, you can click the Check for Updates button on the cover of any of our ebooks to go to the book’s Ebook Extras page, where you can find a link to the EPUB in the Downloads tab. Note that we don’t have EPUB versions of some of our oldest titles.

Thanks for the support! We couldn’t afford to devote time and energy to projects like Bookle without your help.
