Today’s KDD: “Fall reading picks”

Today’s KDD: “Fall reading picks”


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

is any of a group of 13 titles for $2.99 each.

Now, “summer reading” is clearly a thing, but is “fall reading”? I suppose they might be more serious and arty, and more likely to be read indoors. 😉

I’d say, overall, that’s not a bad description of these books. These aren’t really light “popcorn” books/page turners/button mashers.

* 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.
