For anyone that still buys at B&N, do the search links they use on the Nook Daily Find page work for you? For example, where it says “click here” in the first paragraph? Because all I get since their website upgrade is an error message, no matter what browser or computer I use. I was able to find their bonuses today, but that’s an exception. If this is what most people are getting, it’s no wonder their ebook sales are dismal. Anyway, the Daily Find today is the first three novels in Linda Ladd’s Claire Morgan series, but the first seven are on sale for $4 or less, including the last title, Bad Bones for $1.99.

Today on Amazon’s Gold Box, save 50% on Chamberlain WD832KEV 1/2 HP MyQ Enabled Belt Whisper Drive Garage Door Opener.

In the Bonus Deal of the Day, save up to 50% on Top-Rated Strategy Board Games .

Today’s Kindle Daily Deal is The Night Eternal ($1.99), by Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan [William Morrow / HarperCollins].

Book Description
The stunning New York Times bestselling vampire saga that author Dan Simmons (Drood, The Terror) calls, “an unholy spawn of I Am Legend out of ‘Salem’s Lot,” concludes with The Night Eternal. The magnificent, if monstrously warped brainchild of cinematic horror master Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy) and Chuck Hogan—whose novel Prince of Thieves, was praised as, “one of the 10 best books of the year” by Stephen King—The Night Eternal begins where The Strain and The Fall left off: with the last remnants of humankind enslaved by the vampire masters in a world forever shrouded by nuclear winter. Still, a small band of the living fights on in the shadows, in the final book of the ingenious dark fantasy trilogy that Newsweek says is, “good enough to make us break that vow to swear off vampire stories.”

[ Video: These Old YouTube Videos Of Jessie Prove Her Voice Is Incredible! ]

The singers were just catching up and enjoying their delicious dinner together, when things got goofy.

The British beauty posted a video to Instagram of Jason attempting to speak in an English accent, but it didn’t take long before the Want To Want Me singer couldn’t contain his laughter! Ch-ch-check it out (below)!

North West Is A Budding Soccer Star! See The Precious Pic HERE!

The expecting mother snapped a sweet shot to Instagram (above) on Friday of her 2-year-old daughter looking like a pint-sized pro on the field!

The tiny tot was donning a black t-shirt, shorts, and socks — which were pulled up over her itty bitty shin guards — as she kicked and carried a soccer ball that looks like it’s bigger than her head!

Did you see her cute cleats?! We can’t even! The proud momma captioned the precious pic:

“Officially a soccer mom!#MyLittleGoalie ⚽️⚽️⚽️”

Awwwww! What an adorable athlete North is shaping up to be!

Khloé Kardashian Lost HOW MUCH Weight From Her Exercise Routine?!

It’s no secret that Khloé Kardashian is suuuuuper into working out!

We’ve seen countless Instagram selfies from the gym, and we have to say, her body be BANGIN’! You did see her Complex cover (above), right?

[ Photo: Khloé Looks Super Slim In A Curve-Hugging Jumpsuit! ]

Well, now she’s opening up about her exercise obsession! She dished about her love of working out during an Australian radio interview, saying:

“I’m so into it. Even this morning, I’ve been up since 2:30 because I was jetlagged and couldn’t sleep, and I still went to the gym this morning.”

Dang! That’s commitment!

But, the 31-year-old did clarify that it was a relatively easy routine that morning:

“It wasn’t that intense here because I’m still jetlagged, but I make sure that I go. Even 30 minutes you feel, ‘Okay, I feel good about myself.'”

The reality star explained that she usually ups the intensity when she’s stateside, and has shed quite a few pounds because of it, saying:

“Definitely when I’m in L.A., I go hard, and I’ve lost like 35 lbs.”

Woah! She added that she loves seeing herself slim down:

“I know how I want to feel in clothes, and it does become addicting. Once you start losing weight and seeing results, you’re like, ‘I want to see more!'”

Good for you, girl! KoKo certainly looks great! We’re glad she feels happy in her skin, while also losing weight in a healthy fashion!

Naomi Campbell Gets Jail Time For Attacking The Paparazzi!

Naomi Campbell is NOT having a happy Friday!

On July 31, Naomi was sentenced to 6 months in jail by an Italian court for scratching a photog’s eye in 2009. Ouch, sounds painful!

According to the victim, he was photographing Campbell with her then boyfriend, Vladimir Doronin, when the model struck him in the eye with her purse. While the photographer initially pressed charges, they were withdrawn after a behind the scenes settlement was reached. Unfortunately for the 45-year-old, a judge decided to proceed with the case due to the media attention and public fascination.

The fashionista’s attorney said of the Friday ruling:

“We are appealing the ruling surrounding the 2009 incident. Due to the ongoing legal process, we cannot discuss the matter further at this time.”

Sounds like Naomi’s attorney has a lot of work to do! We’ll keep you updated as the case progresses!

Good News! Joe Jackson Is Out Of Intensive Care!

Joe Jackson is out of the woods!

After Joe suffered a stroke on his 87th birthday while vacationing in Brazil, he was confined to intensive care at Albert Einstein Sao Paulo hospital. Sources say Jackson has been moved to a regular room and that he’s slowly regaining his motor skills.

Janet Jackson, who postponed production on her Unbreakable tour, has stood vigil by her father’s beside since the incident. When the patriarch is well enough to fly, he’ll travel with Janet to Los Angeles where he’ll recover for the long term.

Now that the 87-year-old is starting to walk again, we don’t doubt he’ll make a full recovery. Get better, Joe!

Justin Bieber Is Making New Music With WHO?!

We definitely didn’t see this one coming!

On Thursday, Justin Bieber was spotted in the studio recording new music with two very surprising collaborators. We guess Scooter Braun wasn’t joking when he said that the singer’s new sound would “shock some people”!

[ Video: Where Is Justin Now?? Getting Blasted With Paint In The New Skrillex & Diplo Video! ]

So, who was Biebs laying down tracks with? Find out (below)!:

Oh wow, Mariah Carey?! …and French Montana? OKAY!!

While we’re a bit surprised to see French in the mix (did Khloe Kardashian set this up?) we think a Bieber and Carey collab could be really great!

Check out a snap of French and Mariah in the studio (below)!

We love @frenchmontana #pondestudio #surprise
