Today’s KDD: another Kindle Daily Mega-Deal…$1.99 each for top-rated books

Today’s KDD: another Kindle Daily Mega-Deal…$1.99 each for top-rated books

Part of my morning routine is to look at the

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

It’s one of many ways that Amazon saves us money on e-books (I listed 10 ways Amazon saves us money on e-books a couple of years ago).

I do that in the Maxthon browser (my preferred browser) on my

Kindle Fire HDX (at AmazonSmile)

As a

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

member, it’s quite unlikely that I’ll buy one when I see it…even at $1.99 or a huge discount (or both).

Why do I look?

Part of it is for you. I want to alert you to great deals…I think it’s one of the things I can do with this blog that helps people.

The other thing is for gifts…both for me to give a gift to someone else (you can delay delivery until the appropriate occasion) and for me (by adding books to Amazon Wish List so friends and family can get the oy of buying me books).🙂

When I see that there are several books at the top instead of just one, that’s exciting! It sometimes indicate a broad range sale of fifty or so titles.

That was the case recently with books by guests of The Daily Show…and it’s true today for “Top-Rated Reads: Novels, Nonfiction, and More”.

My guess is that the TDS thing was sort of spur of the moment, and this one was already planned.

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! :)
