Today’s KDD: 40 (!) titles include top authors, titles

Today’s KDD: 40 (!) titles include top authors, titles


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

is one of the best in what has been a great year so far! I’m comfortable with saying that this tenth anniversary year of the Kindle (it was released November 19, 2007) has been the best one for Kindle Daily Deals (or equivalents) so far.

I’d be very surprised if a regular reader of this blog hadn’t read a book by at least one of the authors in today’s group…and it wouldn’t surprise me if many of them had already read at least one of the specific books in today’s deal. Just because you have read a book doesn’t mean that the fact that it is on sale isn’t a benefit for you. You can buy the book as a gift at the discounted price and then either delay the delivery for an appropriate gift giving date, or print it out and give it whenever you want.

Check the price before you click, tap, or eye gaze (the last in Virtual Reality) that Buy button, because the price may not apply in your market.

Seriously, do take a look at this offer today. There are books with literally thousands of customer reviews and rated higher than 4 stars on a 5 star scale. There are books from the Big 5 tradpubs (traditional publishers)…there are definitely what I call “People Magazine books” here, ones which would have been reviewed in mainstream media.

Titles include:

  • Dune by Frank Herbert (a beloved, series starting science fiction novel)
  • The Chemist by Stephenie Meyer (author of the Twilight series)
  • Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by Yufal Noah Harari
  • All the Ugly and Wonderful Things by Bryn Greenwood
  • America’s First Daughter by Stephanie Dray and Laura Kamole
  • The Man in the High Castle by Phillip K. Dick (currently a TV series…also available through Kindle Unlimited (at AmazonSmile: benefit a non-profit of your choice by shopping*) at no additional cost)
  • See Me by Nicholas Sparks (superstar author)
  • Memory Man by David Baldacci (over 9,000 customer reviews with an average of 4.4 stars…series starter for Amos Decker)
  • Bullseye by James Patterson (latest book in Michael Bennett series by NYT bestselling author)
  • The Black Ice (Harry Bosch #2); also The Drop (Harry Bosch #17) by Michael Connelly
  • The Silent Sister by Diane Chamberlain
  • The Girl With All the Gifts by M.R. Carey (Glenn Close is in the adaptation of this post-apocalyptic work which has 84% on RottenTomatoes at time of writing)
  • The Two-Family House by Lynda Cohen Loigman
  • Where’d You Go, Bernadette (over 5,000 reviews)
  • How Not to Die by Michael Greger MD and Gene Stone
  • Fall of Giants by Ken Follett (1st in the Century Trilogy which was noted for its high release price initially…in this sale, $3.99)
  • Cometh the Hour by Jeffrey Archer (another superstar author)
  • X (Kinsey Millhone #24) by Sue Grafton
  • The Cuckoo’s Calling (Cormoran Strike #1) by Robert Galbraith (AKA J.K. Rowling)
  • Furiously Happy by Jenny Lawson
  • Bossypants by Tina Fey
  • Yes Please by Amy Poehler
  • The 14th Colony by Steve Berry

  • George Washington’s Secret Six by Brian Kilmeade and Dan Yaeger

* 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! :)

    Hi Bufo, the last time the ILMK blog updated on my Kindle was on 2/15. Would you please again check with Amazon?

  2. Erwin Osborn Says:

    Problems: No ilmk since 2/15, no 221B since 2/14. 221B has downloaded 5 times!

  3. Lady Galaxy Says:

    The ILMK blog seems to be clogged again. I haven’t received a new download to my Kindle since Wednesday. The most recent post is the one titled “On Sale for $3.99 today: Gerald Durrell’s Corfu Trilogy.” The NY Times blog has continued to update.

  4. Karen Says:

    221B updated today but still no ILMK!

        I tried again this evening and no new download. I tried again just now and an up to date version finally downloaded. I did not restart my device.

        Thanks for writing, Lady!

        Thanks for keeping me (and my readers) up to date! It’s frustrating when the blog(s) stop(s) delivering, since I don’t really have any control over it. I keep doing the same thing, and then sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t…
