100 Kindle books for $3.99 or less each: July 2012
Amazon does the Kindle Daily Deal, which discounts (usually) one book a day…often to ninety-nine cents.
They’ve also been doing 100 Kindle Books for $3.99 or Less each month.
Those prices only apply to the USA, and one weird thing is that some of the books seem to sell out at that price sometimes (or become available for some other reason).
It’s also interesting…about 41% of the books in the USA Kindle store are $3.99 or less (600,996 of 1,462,201). Still, these are on sale, and that’s worth something.
I’m going to list some of the ones that caught my eye…I’m not necessarily recommending them, but I do think they are interesting.
The ones I list also don’t block text-to-speech access…but I think blocking it is becoming rarer.
A Scattered Life
by Karen McQuestion
This book was originally self-published, then picked up by AmazonEncore. The reviews have been very good, and here is your chance to get it for $1.99.
A Cabinet of Wonders
by Renee Dodd
Looks like this one is normally $9.99. It’s a story about what used to be called a “freak show”…but apparently done in a sympathetic way.
I haven’t read any of this series, but the reviews are intriguing…
Born on the Fourth of July
by Ron Kovic
Bestselling non-fiction, made into an Oliver Stone movie with Tom Cruise.
The First Assassin
by John J. Miller
This is about John Wilkes Booth…and I think Brutus might quibble with the title.
Bullet for a Star: A Toby Peters Mystery (Book One)
by Stuart M. Kaminsky
Garbage Pail Kids
by Art Spiegelman
An art book about a classic ephemeral product…the “Garbage Pail Kids” stickers taht were popular in the 1980s. I downloaded a sample to my Fire, and when I zoom an image, it looks great. There’s also quite a bit of text, at least in the beginning. Could be a good gift if you know someone who was into them. You don’t have to tell them you got it for $3.99 instead of $19.95.
Emily Windsnap and the Siren’s Secret
by Liz Kessler
Well-reviewed children’s fantasy…and this is the first in the series.
Fun Inc.: Why Gaming Will Dominate the Twenty-First Century
by Tom Chatfield
P.S. I Hate It Here: Kids’ Letters from Camp
by Diane Falanga
We Are All Weird
by Seth Godin
Non-fiction…and they classify it as business. Godin’s a well-known writer, and I can’t argue with the title.
