Today’s KDD: Labor Day Sale (great options!)

Today’s KDD: Labor Day Sale (great options!)

I’m really impressed with today’s

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


Newer books, older books, fiction, non-fiction…I’m pretty sure most of my readers can find something they want, for themselves or someone else!

Well, okay, there were a few weasel words in there, and I’m not saying you’ll all buy something…but it is one of the best KDDs I’ve seen.

As always, you can buy the book at this discounted price and then either delay delivery for the appropriate gift-giving occasion, or get something you can print and give whenever you want.

Also, do check the price before you click/tap/eye-gaze that Buy button…the prices may not apply in your country, and it’s possible a book will have gone out of this sale before you check it.

Titles include:

  • The Miracle of Dunkirk by Walter Lord (who wrote the most famous book about The Titanic)…good context for the current popular movie | $1.99
  • The Radium Girls: The Dark Story of America’s Shining Women by Kate Moore | 4.7 out of 5 stars | 362 customer reviews | $2.18
  • The Prince of Tides by Pat Conroy | $2.99 (this one has gone on sale in the past, but you never know about the future) 😉
  • The Red Cobra (James Ryker #1) by Rob Sinclair
  • Runnin’ with the Devil by Noel E. Monk
  • Meet Me in the Bathroom by Lucy Goodman
  • Warning by Richard A. Clarke (I’ve seen Clark interviewed…fascinating topic. The idea is to be able to identify people who are likely to be right when they say something bad is going to happen. No easy task!)
  • Stealing Fire by Steven Kotler & Jamie Wheal
  • Never Call Me a Hero by N. Jack “Dusty” Kleiss
  • The Forever War by Joe Haldeman (a science fiction classic) | 4.3 stars | 2,068 reviews

  • A Supposedly Fun Thing I’ll Never Do Again by David Foster Wallace
  • Belichick and Brady by Michael Holley
  • The Best Yes by Lysa TerKeurst
  • My Family and Other Animals (The Corfu Trilogy #1) by Gerald Durrell (one of my favorite authors…I hadn’t read all of the Corfu Trilogy until recently, and the third book had “the n word” in it. That surprised me, and will mean that I’ll warn people about reading the three of those together in the future (but leave it up to them)
