Halloween Kindle book deals: $1.99 each

Halloween Kindle book deals: $1.99 each

Far be it from me to knock a sale, but there are some weird things about the

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

Of course, for me, “weird” doesn’t mean bad. 😉

The first weird thing is that all of the banners for the sales say that the books are $2 each, but they are actually $1.99 each. Did they not have room for two decimal places? 🙂

Second, I expected a Halloween sale to be books tied into, you know, Halloween. Vampires, ghosts, goblins…that sort of thing.

Instead, and this is not a bad thing, there is a broader selection, including the New York Times bestselling series, the 87th Precinct mysteries (at least some of them) by Ed McBain.

Many of these titles are also part of

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

so KU members can borrow them at no additional charge.

Remember that you can also buy them as gifts, and delay the delivery until the appropriate gift giving occasion. As  always, check the price before you click or tap that “Buy” button…the prices may not be the same in your country.

Titles include:

  • Multiple books in Alexander Sokoloff’s The Huntress series KU
  • Multiple books in Manel Loureiro Apocalypse Z series KU
  • Hide and Seek (and other books) by Jack Ketchum KU
  • The Venus Trap by Louise Voss KU
  • Multiple books in The Saint series by Leslie Charteris KU
  • Multiple books by Richard Laymon KU
  • Matador by Roy Banks KU

One thing that is Halloween appropriate? The sale goes through October 31st.


Bonus story: if you are interested in my impression of the Fire TV 2 (mine came tonight), see

Fire TV Generation 2 (with Alexa)…first impressions

I put that in my The Measured Circle blog, because that deals more with Alexa (the “parse-onality” of the Echo). I know some of you would probably prefer that that story ran here in ILMK, but it seemed more appropriate there.

* 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.
