Today’s KDD: a great selection!

You gotta love the

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


Even if you aren’t what I call a “piece buyer” and pay for books one at a time to own, you probably give them as gifts. 🙂 At least, I figure that’s the case with a large chunk of my readers.

Today’s KDD is a great selection of books, which Amazon has been doing this year. There have been really amazing deals, and today has many well-known authors.

Remember that you can buy the book at this discounted price and either delay the delivery for the appropriate gift-giving occasion, or even print out a gift code you can (wrap if you want, and) give whenever you want.

Check the price before you click, tap, or eye gaze (the last in virtual/augmented reality) that Buy button…the prices may not apply in your country, and it’s possible you’ll see this after the sale has ended.

Titles include:

  • Two by Two by Nicholas Sparks
  • I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou
  • Can You Keep a Secret? by Sophie Kinsella
  • The Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco
  • The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein
  • The Vegetarian by Han Kang
  • Paper Princess by Erin Watt
  • The Good Girl by Mary Kubica
  • Cinda by Marissa Meyer
  • Along Came a Spider (Alex Cross #1) by James Patterson
  • The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
  • Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter
  • For One More Day by Mitch Albom
  • Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
  • Infinity Gauntlet (Marvel Comics) Jim Starlin, George Perez

* 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! :)
