Today’s KDD: “20 New York Times best sellers are up to 80% off”

Today’s KDD: “20 New York Times best sellers are up to 80% off”


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

has some well-known books and well-known authors at really great prices!

When people think of discounted e-books, I sometimes see them complaining that they are only from indies (independent publishers). First, let me say that many indies are great books!

Second, well, it just isn’t always true. Today’s list will make that point…and a simple refutation to someone would be to say five words: “The Hunt for Red October” which is $1.99 in this sale.

As always, check the price before you click or tap that Buy button. The prices may not apply in your country, and it’s possible you’ll be reading this post after the sale has ended.

These can also make great gifts! Remember that you can buy the book at the sale price and delay the delivery until the proper gift-giving  occasion…these can make great small gifts, or a way to celebrate a vacation.

Books  in the sale include:

  • The Hunt for Red October by Tom Clancy | $1.99
  • The Help by Kathryn Stockett | $1.99 | 4.7 stars out of 5 | 9,472 customer reviews
  • The Big Short by Michael Lewis
  • Memory Man by David Baldacci
  • The Murder House by James Patterson
  • The 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman
  • David and Goliath by Malcolm Gladwell
  • What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty
  • The Stranger by Harlan Coben
  • Because of Miss Bridgerton by Julia Quinn
  • The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg
  • Daring Greatly by Brenet Brown
  • The Witness by Sandra Brown
  • Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson
  • Winer by Marisa Meyer
  • Fall of Giants by Ken Follett (this one created quite a buzz when the e-book was first released at, as I recall, $19.99…in this sale, it is $1.99)
  • Pretty Baby by Mary Kubica
  • A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Housseni
  • George Washington’s Secret Six by Brian Kilmeade
  • The Big Burn by Timothy Egan

* 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 have ‘The Help’ at audible and it was fantastic. Of course one persons fantastic is another’s horrible but for me it is my 23rd favorite book of all-time. I bought the Kindle book because I will re-read it someday and now I can immersion read it whoop-whoop!

      Thanks for writing, Phink!

      Well, the Help has 4.7 stars out of 5 with 9,479 customer reviews at the time of writing, so a lot of people agree with your opinion. 🙂 The Kindle edition is back up to $11.99, by the way.
