This is the first book I paid full price for on my Kindle. It was great. Can't say anything about the quality of the print version, but the book is a really fun read.

best price I've seen on this book. Does anyone know the price of shipping? It would not let me see without creating an account.

Whenever I first picked up a copy, the after-tax cost was $18.65. I know this is cheaper, but it won't result in the final checkout surprise that I was able to experience.

As far as the book goes, it's average at best. It's not a great parody of Lincoln biographies, and it's a subpar book in general. It's much better suited for film than it is print. At this price it's worth a buy, but don't expect anything particularly fantastic. It has a few enjoyable moments, but don't get your hopes up.

@conanthelibrarian: Shipping cost (at least for me) was $6.40. Kind of a buzzkill.

Looks like an email marketing scam to me.

SPOILER ALERT

I hate biographies and I picked up this book because I love vampires (bleh Twilight); this book was essentially a biography of Lincoln's life with vampires interjected. Although I am a fast reader and read books all the time, I found this book pretty boring and struggled through it.

There were some interesting scenes, but if you are not into history, like myself, this book is probably not for you.

@chris12345: They are afraid that we will walk out of the store without paying. Wonder if they will make an exception if I lock my backpack in my bathroom.

According to their site:
"Standard Shipping takes 1 to 4 weeks in the United States with the exception of Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico, which can take up to 6 weeks."

For $6.40, 1-4 weeks isn't that acceptable in my book. Also, if you have a Prime membership, you can get the exact same book on your front door from Amazon in 2 days for only $5.60, which is less than the shipping cost from this deal.

Shipping to Texas was 6.79. Way too much. No deal for me.

@djalliduck: + 1 I could only make it through 50 pages. Love horror, love history. Its the "Snakes on a Plane" of books.

While we're talking books, can I recommend abebooks.com? Pretty similar selection to most new bookstores, but all used stuff. Country wide inventories - you can get a ton of titles for under $3, shipped. My favorite.

Rather expensive shipping, and you MUST create an account to buy from them? Nah. Not my cup of tea.

C'mom - Lincoln as a Vampire slayer? I think a cooler story would be Obama as a Vampire! Or George W as a werewolf! Romney Zombie!

Wish I checked out shipping before upvoting. Not so much a deal anymore.

I read Bill O'Reilly's book, The Killing of Lincoln; and the following week I read Abraham Lincoln:Vampire Hunter. As I was reading AL: Vampire Hunter, I thought to myself, self, why am I reading this stupid book?? Ten pages in, I was hooked! I only hope the movie is as good.

@gabesmalley: Thanks for the link. There are several books on there for under $4 with free shipping by some of my favorite authors.

Silly bookcloseouts.com, $6.40 shipping is no fun at all, that's more than twice the price of the book itself.

What no eBook? What is this thing they call "paperback"?

Standard shipping is $6.40 to Virginia. :( In for 0. I think I'll just add the Amazon one to my wishlist...

@wafflesmcgee: $6.40 for shipping? You mean when if I'm patient they'll deliver all the pictures to my retina for like $10? No way!
