Today’s KDD: “Books for your summer reading, $1.99 & up”

Today’s KDD: “Books for your summer reading, $1.99 & up”


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

is another particularly good one!

These aren’t the “usual” suspects…there are some books and authors which tend to show up pretty often (Kurt Vonnegut, for example). There are really well-known books and authors in this group, and the prices are good. Remember that, in addition to buying for yourself, you could buy these as gifts (either delaying the delivery, or sending them to yourself so you can print them out and give them whenever you want). There are also some good ones for a “guest Kindle”. 🙂

As always, check the price before you click/tap/eye gaze that Buy button: the sale may not be happening in your country, and you may see this after the sale is over.

Here we go!

  • The Martian (at AmazonSmile*) by Andy Weir | 4.7 stars out of 5 | 29,894 customer reviews | great reviews, bestseller, basis for a movie…and $3.99!
  • A Game of Thrones (A Song of Fire and Ice, Book 1) by George R.R. Martin | 4.6 stars | 9,490 reviews | $1.99…quick! Read it before the new season starts tonight! 😉 There would be an argument for buying an omnibus edition, but this is a low-cost way to get started, or to give as a gift

    The Perfect Horse has been on my eRIQ price drop list for awhile now, so I grabbed it up. I almost bought it on Prime Day. I’m glad I waited. I’ve been interested in the Lipizzaner Stallions ever since reading Mary Stewart’s book, “Airs Above the Ground.” I’m still waiting and hoping that someday soon all her books will be available for sale in the USA. I think they’ve already been Kindlized for the UK, so apparently it’s a problem with negotiated rights.

    • Bufo Calvin Says:

      Thanks for writing, Lady!

      I’ve seen Lipizzaner’s live…they are amazing! Sort of like a Great Dane in the sense that you look at them and they are properly proportioned, but large and in slow motion.

      Rights are different between the UK and the USA, so that could be thee issue. That’s likely to change in the future, since so many publishers now buy worldwide rights.

  2. Lady Galaxy Says:

    Oops, meant to say I hope all Mary Stewart’s books will be available on Kindle soon! The paperbacks are still available, but my wonky eyes can’t read print that small any more!
