100 Kindle books for $3.99 or less each: August 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 unavailable for some other reason).
It’s also interesting…about 42% of the books in the USA Kindle store are $3.99 or less (623,861 of 1,490,156). 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.
The Magic Kingdom
by Stanley Elkin
This is not a book for everybody, certainly. It’s not safe for work, for one thing. However, there are people who really love it. It does involve Disney, by the way, but isn’t all sweetness and light.
by Andres Dubus
Although best known for short stories, this is Dubus’ only novel, I believe.

Anno Dracula (Anno Dracula 1)
by Kim Newman
Neil Gaiman has great praise for this book…and isn’t the only one. It mixes vampires and history…and I suspect it has appeal beyond vampire fiction fans.
