A great Google Chrome extension for eReaderIQ
I have often referred to
as the best resource for Kindleers on the web.
I’m not associated with the site, although we have had e-mail correspondence (just as a user making suggestions).
They have a number of free services:
- You can track a Kindle store book to see when it drops in price an amount you specify
- You can track an author
- You can be notified when a book first becomes available for the Kindle
- You can search the Kindle store in a much more sophisticated way that Amazon gives you
Well, I was excited to see that there is a new “extension” for the Google Chrome web browser!
This is a free little program that you add to Chrome, and when you are on a Kindle store book page, it brings some of the functionality of eReaderIQ into your Kindle store experience.
My favorite thing is that I can see the price tracking.
It’s possible they’ll give me permission to post a screenshot here (or send me one…I haven’t contacted them yet), but I’d suggest you try it yourself (it’s free).
What this means is that I can see if a book has ever been on sale before, and when. That can help you guess if it might go on sale again…no guarantee, but if it goes on sale periodically, that can be an indicator (as can be if it never goes on sale).
You can also choose to track it right there…very convenient. 🙂
The easiest way to get it is to be in Chrome, and go to
Alternatively, go to the Chrome Web Store and search for eReaderIQ (it’s called eReaderIQ Integrator).

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.
