Books make terrific holiday gifts, but finding perfect books for friends and family can be a time-consuming challenge. If only if the bookstore could come to us. That’s the idea behind this In the Nick of Time! holiday sampler PDF. Inside are excerpts from a dozen new novels and nonfiction books by these New York Times-bestselling authors, successful entrepreneurs, and wickedly talented storytellers:

Laurell K. Hamilton — Divine Misdemeanors
Seth Godin — Tribes and an exclusive excerpt of Linchpin, out next year
Joseph Finder — Vanished
Cory Doctorow — Makers
Chris Brogan & Julien Smith — Trust Agents
Robert J. Sawyer — Wake
Mitch Joel – Six Pixels of Separation
Cherie Priest — Boneshaker
Tara Hunt — The Whuffie Factor
Scott Sigler — The Rookie
Seth Harwood — Jack Wakes Up
J.C. Hutchins — 7th Son: Descent

Now that’s a formidable list of both SF/F and non-genre works. Go check it out, and happy downloadings!

Pablo Defendini has been wanting to check out The Whuffie Factor, now he’s got the perfect excuse.
