Online Wine Deals, Germs on Planes, Travel Book Bundles & More
Headlines & highlights from around the web:
- Wines ‘Til Sold Out Cheapskate marathon is live! Highly rated wines for $8.99-$18.99 every 15 minutes or less with free shipping on 4+ bottles. I missed a $45 Priorat for $17 by seconds, so I’ll be keeping their webpage open on my browswer most of today. 🙂
- Reader Chris just introduced me to Humble Bundle, an interesting site that offers bundles of books, games, and possibly more. I’m still figuring it out, but looks like you can pay whatever you want for the bundle, unlocking additional titles if you exceed the averageprice. Even more interesting, you can decide where your payment goes –to the website or to one of three charities. Today (only for the next 8 hours), they have a bunch of Lonely Planet travel ebooks up for grabs!
Pay what you want for Lonely Planet’s Best Ever Travel Tips, Lonely Planet’s Best Ever Photography Tips, The World’s Great Wonders, Best in Travel 2016, and The Lonely Planet Book of Everything.
Pay more than the average price to also receive From the Source Thailand, From the Source Italy, How To Survive Anything, Volunteer: A Traveller’s Guide to Making a Difference Around the World, The World, and You Only Live Once.
Pay $15 or more for all of that plus Wine Trails, Lonely Planet’s Wild World, Lonely Planet’s Beautiful World, and The Travel Book.
- A 17 year has figured out a way to limit the spread of germs like bird flu and SARS among airline passengers which he shared on a recent TED talk. I’m all for the idea of “personalized breathing zones.”
- WhoWhatWear has a DIY tip on how to make cheap heels look expensive. I was wishing it was something applicable to a broader range of shoes. Any reader tips?
