My favorite Kindle e-book sale is back! KDD is the student deal (338 books up to 90% off each)
is any of 338 books “for students”, up to 90% off.
I put the “for students” in quotation marks, because that seems like a very loose definition for me…there is probably something here for just about anyone. After all, hopefully, we are still students of one kind or another, right? 😉
I took a quick look back…it does look like they tend to do this in January. That’s sort of in the middle of a traditional school year, and they don’t need to (ever) clear out stock on e-books, so I’m not sure why…but I’m not going to look a gift course in the mouth. 😉
Remember also that e-books can make great gifts! You can buy them now at the discount, and specify that they be delivered on the appropriate gift giving occasion. You can also have the e-mail sent to yourself, print it out, and wrap it, if you’d rather.
Something I also noticed as I started to look through these: very few, if any, are part of
So if I buy any, they are likely to be as gifts…but I may also put some on my wish list.
