Round up #256: 40% off any Zinio mag, $1.99 Brave New World

The ILMK Round ups are short pieces which may or may not be expanded later.

KDD: Brave New World & BNW Revisited, $1.99 each

One of today’s

Kindle Daily Deals (at AmazonSmile: benefit a non-profit of your choice by shopping*)

is one of the really classic dystopias, Brave New World by Aldous Huxley for $1.99. They also have what isn’t really a sequel, but a sort of progress report on how much the real world had come to resemble the fictional one, Brave New World Revisited.

This is nice, too: you can get the audiobook of BNW also for $1.99 (if you buy the e-book)…and it is read by Michael York.

Oh, and BNW is currently in the KOLL (Kindle Owners’ Lending Library)…might be a nice borrow some month, if it stays there.

As always, check the price before you click that “Buy” button…might not apply in your country.

$1.99 Memorial Day Sale

Amazon has 50 books in its

$1.99 Memorial Day Sale (at AmazonSmile)

It’s worth checking these out. There are books in Ed McBain’s 87th Precinct series (Amazon publishes the e-books), for one thing. 🙂

40% off any subscription from Zinio for Memorial Day

I subscribe to Fortean Times through Zinio, and read it in the Zinio app on my  Kindle Fire HDX (at AmazonSmile: support a non-profit of your choice by shopping*). I went to Zinio initially because Amazon didn’t have FT, but I do like the interface.

Through May 27th, they are having a 40% off any subscription sale. You need to enter the code MAY50 at check-out to get the discount.

* 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! :)
