Today’s KDD: select bestsellers (The Good Earth and A Night to Remember are under $1.50 each…)


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

is right up there with some of the best they’ve done lately!

There are well-known, well-reviewed, bestselling books in here for less than I would expect to pay for a used paperback in a store.

As usual, some of these would make great small gifts (and you can buy them at the discounted price and delay delivery for the appropriate gift-giving occasion, or print them out to give whenever you want). There also is some good summer reading (although you might not want to read A Night to Remember on your cruise…at least, other people won’t be able to tell you are reading it, which may make your ship crew happy) 😉 and some to have for your guest library, if you do that. We keep a guest Kindle for visitors, and A Good Earth could be a good choice for that.

As a reminder, check the price before you click, tap, or eye gaze that Buy button (the last in Virtual/Augmented Reality)…the prices may not apply in your country, and books may have left the sale before you see this.

Books include (there are 45 in the sale):

  • The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck $1.13 (4.6 stars out of 5 | 1,199 customer reviews…Pulitzer Prize winner)
  • The Prince of Tides by Pat Conroy $1.13

* 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! :)
