Todays’ KDD: 40 award-winning books for $3.99 or less each

Todays’ KDD: 40 award-winning books for $3.99 or less each


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

is any of 40 (!) award-winning books for $3.99 or less each.

There are some titles here from well-known authors. Not every award is given to someone who is a brand name, or even broadly respected. In some cases, that seems intentional: some awards are intended to bring to recognition worthy books which would otherwise be missed.

These prices are for the USA, and may not apply in your country. As always, check the price before you click or tap that “Buy” button.

Remember that you can buy the books during the sale as a gift, and delay the delivery until the appropriate gift-giving occasion. While gifts can be a wonderful “main” gift, they also make great small gifts.

Titles in today’s sale include:

  • Still Life: A Chief Inspector Gamache Novel (A Chief Inspector Gamache Mystery Book 1) by Louise Penny
  • A Fire Upon The Deep (Zones of Thought series Book 1) by Vernor Vinge
  • The Cider House Rules by John Irving
  • Bloodchild: And Other Stories by Octavia E. Butler also available in  Kindle Unlimited (at AmazonSmile: benefit a non-profit of your choice by shopping*)
  • Code Name Verity by Elizabeth E. Wein
  • 2312 by Kim Stanley Robinson
  • To Rise Again at a Decent Hour by Joshua Ferris
  • The Last Policeman: A Novel (Last Policeman Trilogy Book 1) by Ben H. Winters (and other books in the series)
  • Seventh Son: The Tales of Alvin Maker, Volume I by Orson Scott Card
  • The Collected Stories of Eudora Welty by Eudora Welty
  • Summer of ’49 by David Halberstam KU

  • Fireball: Carole Lombard and the Mystery of Flight 3 by Robert Matzen KU
  • Robert Kennedy and His Times by Arthur M. Schlesinger
  • Bearing the Cross: Martin Luther King, Jr., and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference by David J. Garrow

That’s just a few.

Update: I realized I could filter for KU books in the sale, and well, it’s a good way to alert you to award-winning KU books. 🙂 These are the five (out of 40…12.5%):

  • Parable of the Talents by Octavia E. Butler

* 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.

    I think I remember you saying that you do not care for book trailers. Perhaps I am wrong about that but I think I remember it. I just finished the Last Policeman trilogy and the first two are on the above list. Here is a trailer for the first one if you want to share it with anyone who may want to see it and then decide if they want the book or not.
