Apple is holding their “12 Days of Gifts” again this year. This is where they give away one free item every day from December 26 for 12 days. The first two days were not anything of interest to me, but today, they really offered something of value! It is Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2014 ebook for iBooks. I am not sure what the normal price is from Apple, but Amazon charges $8.99 for the Kindle edition (so probably pretty close).
To download this, you need to download the free Apple app of the 12 Days of Gifts. After you register it with which region your App account is located in (this book is only available in the US), you can go ahead and download the book. I got it and started looking at it. I have to say, this looks like a great deal for any traveler! Important to note: this must be downloaded today and you must have an Apple device to download the book (Apple desktop, laptop, or mobile device).
