Today’s KDD: current affairs

Today’s KDD: current affairs

Once again, a very interesting

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

with some well-known titles at great prices!

Amazon did choose to tie into today’s events in Washington by doing “political” books…but from several viewpoints, which I think is a good choice.

Remember that you can buy the books at today’s discounted price as a gift, and either delay delivery until the appropriate gift-giving occasion, or print the gift out to give whenever you want (even wrap it, if that’s your choice).

Check the price before you click, tap, or eye gaze (the last in Virtual Reality) that Buy button: prices may not apply in your country, for one thing.

Titles in this sale include:

  • Our Revolution: A Future to Believe In by Bernie Sanders | 4.7 stars out of 5 | 435 customer reviews |$3.99
  • Listen, Liberal: Or, What Ever Happened to the Party of the People? by Thomas Frank | 4.5 stars | 299 reviews
  • The Unwinding: An Inner History of the New America by George Packer
  • No Place to Hide: Edward Snowden, the NSA, and the U.S. Surveillance State by Glenn Greenwald
  • Wake Up America: The Nine Virtues That Made Our Nation Great–and Why We Need Them More Than Ever by Eric Bolling
  • Hot, Flat, and Crowded 2.0: Why We Need a Green Revolution–and How It Can Renew America by Thomas L. Friedman
  • The America We Deserve by Donald Trump
  • The Beltway Bible: A Totally Serious A-Z Guide to Our No-Good, Corrupt, Incompetent, Terrible, Depressing, and Sometimes Hilarious…by Eliot Nelson
  • America Ascendant: A Revolutionary Nation’s Path to Addressing Its Deepest Problems and Leading the 21st Century by Stanley B. Greenberg

and they do have some “counter-programming” deals, without an obvious connection to current events:

  • The Widower’s Wife by Cate Holahan
  • Wind River Wrangler (Wind River Series Book 1) by Lindsay McKenna
  • The Hydrogen Sonata (A Culture Novel Book 10) by Iain M. Banks
  • The Killing Season: A Novel (Carter Blake) by Mason Cross

      Thanks for writing, Lady!

      I appreciate the heads up! I think I had flipped that into my Flipboard ILMK magazine already, but I did find it worth reading…fortunately, the article hasn’t been banned.
