Special Offer: get one of 100 mysteries & thrillers for $1
Here’s the latest Special Offer on books from Amazon.
First, a word on that. If you have a wi-fi capable Kindle (that seems to be the determining factor), you can turn Special Offers on, get the offer, and then just turn them off again if you want.
You do that at
then click on
Manage Your Devices
You’ll see a place to subscribe or unsubscribe. If you paid less for your Kindle because it has Special Offers, it costs you to unsubscribe. If you didn’t, it costs nothing to subscribe and then unsubscribe again.
Here’s the kicker on this one: the deadline to accept this offer is 11:59 p.m. (Pacific Time), December 10, 2011 (Saturday). You have to click it on your Kindle by then.
You’ll then get an e-mail, and you’ll enter a code (you can copy and paste it from the e-mail). You must select your book by January 7, 2012 (Millard Fillmore’s birthday…but you knew that, right?).
Here are some that stood out to me:
by James Ellroy
This is the first novel by the author of L.A. Confidential.
by William W. Johnstone
Johnstone is a popular and prolific author.
The Siege of Trencher’s Farm
by Gordon Williams
The inspiration for the movie(s), Straw Dogs.
I read and enjoyed the first in this series…reviewed it here. I think I’ll get this one.
by Leon Uris
Leon Uris is a bestselling novelist (Exodus, QB Vii, The Haj).
The Door Between
by Ellery Queen
I saw some other interesting ones…feel free to let me know what you got.
