Save $! Kindle Fire -30, Sue Grafton $1.99 each, $1 books

Well, here’s a day you can save some money!

Let’s start out with a couple of Amazon Local deals.

This first one is for a $30 off coupon for the Kindle Fire:

This is on the

Kindle Fire 7″, LCD Display, Wi-Fi, 8 GB – Includes Special Offers

That’s not the HD model, but it is the 2nd generation.

First claim the coupon code, then wait for an e-mail.

This brings the price of the Kindle Fire down from either $159 with Special Offers down to $129 (after applying the code) or from $174 (without Special Offers) down to $144.

This is a good deal and yes, might suggest that something new is coming.

AmazonLocal also has a deal today on e-books:

Up to 30 e-books from a specific list for $1 each

Again, you have to first claim the code before you can get them. If you don’t have an AmazonLocal account, I think you’d have to set one up…but those are free.

Among the books is an Ian Fleming travel book, Thrilling Cities. I’m always on the lookout for small gifts, and that might be a good one at the holidays for a James Bond fan (who likely won’t have read it). It’s nonfiction, but might be interesting.

“Now how much would you pay? But wait, there’s more!” šŸ˜‰

One of theĀ Kindle Daily Deals today is up to 15 of the first Sue Grafton “Alphabet Series” of Sue Grafton’s Kinsey Millhone mysteries (“A is for Alibi”, and so on), for $1.99 each.

My Significant Other wasn’t crazy about them, but I’ve never read them (although I sold Ā lot when I managed a bookstore), so I’ll probably buy the first one.

Thinking about gifts again? You could get somebody the first ten books for $19.99…that’s a bargain! You can delay delivery to whenever you want.

This deal won’t get you the whole series…there have been 22 so far, with the 23rd (W is for Wasted (KINSEY MILLHONE MYSTERY)Ā coming in September.

One more Kindle Daily Deal I’ll highlight:

Who Goes There? (RosettaBooks into Film)

That’s the short work by John W. Campbell that inspired both The Thing (from Another World), the classic Howard Hawks sci-fi movie, and the John Carpenter movie (and more, but those two are very different and both worth seeing).

One thing I hadn’t known: apparently, John W. Campbell’s mother and aunt were identical twins, and would switch on the young future author as a game. That certainly created some issues of identity!

There are seven stories all together here, but it is still short, just so you know.


Note: these deals may not be available in your country. As always, check the price and read the rules for the special offers before clicking or tapping that Buy button.

    I bought all 15 of the Sue Grafton books. I have the set in hardcover, and am going to pass it on to my sister-in-law. (I have WAY too many p-books.
