July 2014 Kindle book releases

July 2014 Kindle book releases

While I don’t generally pre-order Kindle store books myself, I know many of you do.

I understand the fun of just having the book show up, but I figure I’ll order when I want it…since I could have it within a minute, usually.…

These aren’t necessarily the most popular of the pre-orders…I’m just going to list ones that catch my eye. Since we might not agree on that, here’s a link to the 3,570 (at time of writing) March releases in the USA Kindle store:

July 2014 USA Kindle store releases (at AmazonSmile: benefit a non-profit of your choice by shoppint*)

As usual, I won’t be deliberately linking to books which block text-to-speech access blocked**.

By the way, some of the prices seem particularly high to me this time. You can always list books for free at


and they’ll let you know when a book drops in price an amount you specify. I think that is the most useful site on the web for Kindleers. I’m not associated with them, although we have had some correspondence.

To Kill a Mockingbird (at AmazonSmile)
by Harper Lee
literature & fiction – classics
pre-order for July 8

I think this will be one of the best-selling e-books of the year. People have been waiting for it to become legally available (well, not everybody waited) for years.

The Mockingbird Next Door: Life with Harper Lee (at AmazonSmile)
by Marja Mills
biographies and memoirs
pre-order for July 15

Mills literally moved in next door to Harper Lee to write about the author…nice companion piece to TKaM being released!

The Book of Life (at AmazonSmile)
by Dorothy Harkness
romance – fantasy
pre-order for July 15

The end of the trilogy begun with A Discovery of Witches…

The City (at AmazonSmile)
by Dean Koontz
romance – fantasy
per-order for July 1

Interesting to see the publisher classify this Koontz book as a romance…

Power Play (An FBI Thriller) (at AmazonSmile)
by Catherine Coulter
pre-order for July 8

Koontz is romance, Coulter is suspense…got it. 🙂

A Perfect Life (at AmazonSmile)
by Danielle Steele
family saga
pre-order for July 22

From one of the most popular authors ever…

Cut and Thrust (Stone Barrington) (at AmazonSmile)
by Stuart Woods
pre-order for July 15

From the unstoppably popular author…close to thirty New York Times bestsellers!

For All Time: A Nantucket Brides Novel (Nantucket Brides Trilogy) (at AmazonSmile)
by Jude Deveraux
pre-order for July 1

Oh, wait…did I make a big deal about nearly thirty NYT bestellers? Deveraux has over forty!

Sight Unseen (at AmazonSmile)
by Iris Johansen, Roy Johansen
crime fiction, supernatural
pre-order for July 15

This one sounds interesting…both Johansens are recognized authors.

The Last Town (The Wayward Pines Series, Book Three) (at AmazonSmile)
by Blake Crouch
horror, mystery
pre-order for July 15

I read the first one of these…it was worth reading. This series is soon to be a Fox TV series. It’s also traditionally published by Amazon.

Diary of a Mad Diva (at AmazonSmile)
by Joan Rivers
humor, biographies and memoirs
pre-order for July 1

New York Times bestselling author…that’s the first thing that comes to mind for Joan Rivers, right? 😉

The Giver Quartet Omnibus (at AmazomSmile)
by Lois Lowry
pre-order for July 1

Want to read up before the movie is release? Four title omnibus for $14.99.

The High Druid’s Blade: The Defenders of Shannara (at AmazonSmile)

The long-running fantasy series…

* 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! :) By the way, it’s been interesting lately to see Amazon remind me to “start at AmazonSmile” if I check a link on the original Amazon site. I do buy from AmazonSmile, but I have a lot of stored links I use to check for things.

** A Kindle with text-to-speech can read any text downloaded to it…unless that access is blocked by the publisher inserting code into the file to prevent it. That’s why you can have the device read personal documents to you (I’ve done that). I believe that this sort of access blocking disproportionately disadvantages the disabled, although I also believe it is legal (provided that there is at least one accessible version of each e-book available, however, that one can require a certification of disability). For that reason, I don’t deliberately link to books which block TTS access here (although it may happen accidentally, particularly if the access is blocked after I’ve linked it). I do believe this is a personal decision, and there  are legitimate arguments for purchasing those books.
