Gold Box Deal: up to 75% off books for “students”

Gold Box Deal: up to 75% off books for “students”

I recently wrote recently wrote about how I like Amazon’s “Big Deal” (the current one goes through January 25th) on Kindle books, and I do. 🙂

However, I think I like another sale they do (more rarely) even better…their sales of hundreds of books for “students”!

I put the word “students” in quotation marks, because really, there are books here for a very wide variety of people. I would hope that people are always students, at any stage of life and in any profession.

This is a Gold Box Deal: it will only be good for today (although the books may go on sale again some time, of course), and may not apply in your country (I have readers all over the world).

Here it is:

Gold Box Deal of the Day: Save up to 75% on Kindle Books for Students (at AmazonSmile*)

Remember that these can also make good gifts. You can delay their delivery for a specific date, or you can have the gift e-mailed to yourself, print it out and save it. That makes it a good “emergency gift”. 🙂 Since this is a one day sale, I don’t have time to really describe each of the books I select…don’t want you to miss getting the ones you want. 🙂

These are some that caught my eye:

I bought my Echo through 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.
