Kindle Big Deal: more than 500 books, up to 85% off
This deal just goes through Sunday (tomorrow, March 30th). As always, check the price before you click that Buy button…these prices may not be valid in your country, and books go on and off the sale.
I’m going to highlight some of the books that caught my eye, but here’s the complete list:
This is the book in the popular trilogy which is the basis for the TV series.
Brainwashed: Challenging the Myth of Black Inferiority (at AmazonSmile)
by Tom Burrell
4.7 stars, 120 reviews
political and social studies, race relations
Sounds like an interesting book to get people to reconsider their paradigms…the author is described as an “advertising visionary”.
Yep…four novels in a well-reviewed steampunk series for $1.99! This might be a good indie to buy, so you don’t give your refund money (from the recent settlement) back to one of the publishers who overcharged you!
Believe it or not, there are people who love football more than books. 😉 However, a lot of football fans also read..and this might make a good gift. Remember that you can delay the delivery of a Kindle book gift until an appropriate occasion.
Age of Context: Mobile, Sensors, Data and the Future of Privacy (at AmazonSmile)
by Robert Scoble, Shel Israel
4.6 stars, 219 reviews
business and management
This sounds like it might be an important book, and I just bought it. It takes a look at how tech in the future might affect business…and that, of course, affects everyone.
First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia Remembers (at AmazonSmile)
by Loung Ung
4.5 stars, 279 reviews
history, biographies and memoirs
Sounds like an interesting premise, and the reviews are good.
A Dog Named Boo: The Underdog with a Heart of Gold (at AmazonSmile)
by Lisa J. Edwards
4.6 stars, 103 reviews
pets & animal care, essays
From Harlequin Nonfiction…not one of the settling publishers, by the way.
Betty is Ellen’s parent…and we don’t make journeys alone. Might be a good gift for a fan of the show.
The inspiration for the TV series…
This book purports to show the science behind why people believe in the “unbelievable”…I’d be interested in the author’s take on it.
Believe me…that’s just the tip of the bookberg! 😉 If others stand out to you (from Spider-Man to history and more), feel free to let me and my readers know by commenting on this post.

* I am linking to the same thing at the regular Amazon site, and at AmazonSmile. When you shop at AmazonSmile, half a percent of your purchase price on eligible items goes to a non-profit you choose. It will feel just like shopping at Amazon: you’ll be using your same account. The one thing for you that is different is that you pick a non-profit the first time you go (which you can change whenever you want)…and the good feeling you’ll get. Shop ’til you help!
