Today’s KDD: “Up to 80% off select New York Time best sellers”

June 25, 2017

Today’s KDD: “Up to 80% off select New York Time best sellers”

Today’s

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

is an excellent group! Many of these are what we might have called “window books” when I managed a brick-and-mortar bookstore: the books you put in the window to attract people into the store. That doesn’t meant that these are current bestsellers, but I would bet that most of my readers have heard of some of these books and even more of the authors.

These prices are good for today, but may not apply in your market: check the price before you click/tap/eye gaze that Buy button (the last in virtual/augmented reality).

As usual, you can buy these books at the discount and then delay delivery until an appropriate gift-giving occasion, or even print out a certificate you can wrap (or not) and give whenever you want. If you do small gifts in your family at the holidays, there are some great opportunities here!

Oh, and if you are looking for summer reads for the airplane or the beach, this is a good sale for your consideration!

Buy a Paperwhite, get six months of Kindle Unlimited free!

June 20, 2017

Buy a Paperwhite, get six months of Kindle Unlimited free!

Thanks to reader and commenter Jay Howard for the heads up on this!

Right now (through this Friday, June 23 at 11:00 PM Pacific), when you buy a

Kindle Paperwhite (at AmazonSmile: benefit a non-profit of your choice by shopping*)

(which is the model I generally recommend…I like having the lighted screen and that’s unlike the least expensive model, and while I think the Voyage is incrementally better, it doesn’t seem worth the cost difference for most people. The Oasis can’t be purchased without an animal leather cover, so I haven’t tried it. Amazon also describes the Paperwhite as “Our best-selling Kindle”), you also get six months of

Kindle Unlimited (at AmazonSmile: benefit a non-profit of your choice by shopping*)

for no additional cost. KU is Amazon’s subser (subscription service), where you can borrow up to ten books at a time from a selection of over a million and a half (1,602,203 at time of writing) titles! Six months of KU is normally $59.64 (I’m looking at the USA, which is where this offer applies), so this is a great deal!

Note also that KU will be available to everybody at the account, and typically, a book can be read on six devices at a time at no additional cost (if it is different from that, it will say so on the book’s Amazon product page).

So, if you buy a gift of the PW for someone else on your account, you’ll all get the benefit for six months (benefits include select magazines, by the way)…and then, it’s up to you as to whether you continue or not.

We’ve been happy KU members since it started, although it’s not for everybody. Here are some titles currently available through KU (title availabilities change), in case you haven’t looked:

  • The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
  • The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
  • 1984 by George Orwell
  • Orphans of Katrina: Inside the World’s Biggest Animal Rescue. What Really Happened on the Gulf and How You Can Help Save America’s Pets Today by Karen O’Toole
  • Signature Wounds by Kirk Russell
  • The Last Woman Standing by Thelma Adams
  • The Lioness of Morocco by Julia Drosten (translated by Christiane Galvani)
  • The Lord of the Rings series by J.R.R. Tolkien
  • Ripper: The Secret Life of Walter Sickert by Patricia Cornwell

Those are just a few of the many choices.

Thanks, Jay!

Big sale on some Kindles and Echoes

June 13, 2017

Big sale on some Kindles and Echoes

Whether this is for Fathers’ Day or not, there are some nice sales on Amazon devices right now!

Let’s start out with Kindle EBRs (E-Bok Readers), where all of the current models except the most expensive one are on sale:

Next, let’s look at the sale on Echo family devices:

I use all three of these, and they all have their good points. The Tap now does hands-free, which really ups its value…but you can’t use it for Alexa Calling, so that’s a negative. For decent sound music, the Dot needs an external speaker.

Not on sale?

Echo Show (at AmazonSmile: benefit a non-profit of your choice by shopping*) $229.99…but they still have the two for $100 offer (use the code SHOW2PACK…read the terms and conditions)

Echo Look (at AmazonSmile*) $199.99

Nice sale! Probably won’t last too long…

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

June 10, 2017

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

Today’s

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
  • The Fifties by David Halberstram (a popular work of non-fiction) $1.99
  • Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah
  • The Last Kingdom (Saxon Tales #1) by Bernard Cornwell
  • The Cater Street Hangman by Anne Perry
  • Swan Song by Robert H. McCammon $1.99 (1727 customer reviews | 4.6 out of 5 stars…popular horror)
  • Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt
  • Lillith’s Brood: Dawn/Adulthood Rites/Imago by Octavia E. Butler (this is a great deal at $1.99 for this omnibus of three titles!)
  • I Contain Multitudes: The Microbes within Us and a Grander View of Life by Ed Yong (4.7 stars | 205 reviews)
  • The Keepers of the House by Shirley Ann Grau (Pulitzer Prize winner) $1.99
  • The Love Season by Elin Hilderbrand
  • The Imam’s Daughter by Hannah Shah
  • Sweet Salt Air by Barbara Delinsky
  • Lock In by John Scalzi
  • A Night to Remember by Walter Lord (about the Titanic) $1.13
  • Trap Line by Carl Hiaasen and Bill Montalbano
  • World’s End by Upton Sinclair
  • Genius: The Life and Science of Richard Feynman by James Gleick
  • Noah Gordon: The Dr. Robert Cole Trilogy (three books for $1.99)
  • The Red Horseman by Stephen Coontz
  • Seventh Heaven by Alice Hoffman
  • The Rich Are Different by Susan Howatch

Enjoy!

Monthly Kindle Deals up to 80% off: June 2017

June 5, 2017

Monthly Kindle Deals up to 80% off: June 2017

Amazon does the Kindle Daily Deal (at AmazonSmile…benefit a non-profit of your choice by shopping*), which used to discount four books a day (often general fiction, a romance, a science fiction/fantasy book, and a kids’ book). Now, it seems like it is generally more books than that, and not categorized…although they have been doing themes this year as well.

They also do Monthly Kindle Book Deals up to 80% off (at AmazonSmile). There used to be about 100 of them, but there are many times that now: 1,151 at the time of writing…18 more than last month.

Those prices only apply to the USA, and one weird thing is that sometimes some of the books seem to sell out at that price (or become unavailable for some other reason).

Another thing is that 230 of them (497 fewer than last month) are available through

Kindle Unlimited (at AmazonSmile: benefit a non-profit of your choice by shopping*)

Amazon lists that information prominently…and it’s now commonly a filter in search results. If they are, then you need to consider whether it is worth buying them…even at these low prices. While they are in KU, you can, if you are a subscriber (and there’s a free month available right now), read them at no additional cost. There are, of course, advantages to owning books, especially if you want to re-read them. A book could move out of KU at any time. Even if you think you want to own it, if you are a KU member, you could always read it first to make sure. 😉 I will mark them with KU.

By the way, in the new version of the

eReaderIQ advanced search

you can make KU a filter. So, you can search for books by an author, a keyword, an average customer review which you can read as part of your KU membership…nice! I’m not associated with eReaderIQ except as a user (we have had some correspondence), but I do think it is the most valuable website for Kindleers.

In terms of which ones are

Prime Reading (at AmazonSmile: benefit a non-profit of your choice by shopping*)

eligible, which is Amazon’s new benefit for Prime members, a rotating list of books you can borrow each month.

This month there are 15, which is 33 fewer than last month. That is notably fewer in KU and PR…I can see an argument that not discounting (as much?) a book which is available to borrow for free makes that look like more of an advantage.

I’m going to list some of the books in this sale that caught my eye…I’m not necessarily recommending them, but I do think they are interesting.

The ones I link (if I actually link to specific books) also don’t block text-to-speech access**…but I think blocking it is becoming rarer.

Okay, books!

  • Left to Tell: Discovering God Amidst the Rwandan Holocaust by Immaculee Ilibagiza and Steve Erwin | 4.9 out of 5 star | 1,609 customer reviews (that’s a really high rating!)
  • Unoffendable: How Just One Change Can Make All of Life Better by Brant Hansen
  • All Creatures Great and Small, All Things Bright and Beautiful, and All Things Wise and Wonderful: Three James Herriot Classics by James Herriot (this one might be a particularly good gift at $2.99)

  • Yellow Crocus by Laila Ibrahim (my Significant Other and I both liked this one…and so did lots of other people, with 4.6 stars and a very high 12,210 customer reviews)

Remember that you can buy them now as gifts and delay the delivery for the appropriate gift-giving occasion, or print them out and wrap them for whenever you want.

It makes a lot of sense to have so many series starters, but I should also mention that there may be other books in the series in the group…I didn’t list two book in the same series.

If there were others you’d like to mention for me and my readers, please comment on this post.

Prime members, don’t forget to pick up your

Kindle First books (at AmazonSmile*)

You can get one of the six (same as last month) books to own (not borrow) for free…these are books which will be actually released next month. This line was at the bottom of the listings this time (I changed the link): “Please note: Kindle Unlimited (at AmazonSmile: benefit a non-profit of your choice by shopping*) subscribers can borrow these Kindle First books when they are officially released on July 1, 2017″. The choices this month are:

  • The Man of Legends by Kenneth Johnson (Supernatural Thriller) (this is the Kenneth Johnson behind so much geek TV, including The Bionic Woman, Alien Nation, The Incredible Hulk, and V)
  • Soho Dead (the Soho Series book 1) by Greg Keen (Crime Fiction)
  • Stillhouse Lake by Rachel Caine (Psychological Thriller)
  • Wives of War by Soraya M. Lane (Historical Fiction)
  • The Man Who Could Be King by John Ripin Miller (Biographical Fiction) (a novel about George Washington)
  • Lost in Arcadia by Sean Gandert (Dystopian Fiction)

People like to know which one I pick…this one was easy, I went with Kenneth Johnson. Even if the legendary creator’s book turns out to be not the best (I don’t know yet), I figured it’s a debt I owe for the great television. 😉

Enjoy!

It’s going on that long in part so that it covers the actual 40th anniversary of Star Wars (of the release in the USA) on May 25th 2017. Also, this book, which has good reviews and is new, is $14.99 in the Kindle edition…which is a lot for me for a giveaway. 🙂

Good luck, and may the Force be with you!

It’s going on that long in part so that it covers the actual 40th anniversary of Star Wars (of the release in the USA) on May 25th 2017. Also, this book, which has good reviews and is new, is $14.99 in the Kindle edition…which is a lot for me for a giveaway. 🙂

Good luck, and may the Force be with you!

Today’s KDD: Agatha Christies (including some well known ones) for $1.99 each!

Today’s KDD: Agatha Christies (including some well known ones) for $1.99 each!

Today’s

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

is really nice! I may buy at least one to have available for our guest Kindle (although other people may read it as well, of course).

These are more than 20 books by Agatha Christie (including some of the best known ones) for $1.99 each!

I always like to point this out, but this is a particularly good example. You can buy the books at this discounted price, and then either delay the delivery for an appropriate gift-giving occasion, or have them sent to yourself so you can give them whenever you want. You could do your own “boxed set” of five of these for under $10!

Check the price before you click, tap, or eye gaze (the last in virtual/augmented reality) that Buy button…the price may not apply in your market, among other things.

I don’t have all my resources with me right now, but here are five I might suggest for a “boxed set” (without the box, of course) gift:

  • And Then There Were None (which has been known by other names, now…um…not considered appropriate by some people). When I was an actor, I had great fun playing Blore (and got good feedback). I was a bit frustrated, though. We had the audience “vote” who they thought was guilty at intermission, and despite my best efforts, no one ever picked me. 🙂 I’m not saying whether the character is or isn’t guilty, by the way…no spoilers here
  • Death on the Nile (Hercule Poirot)
  • The Moving Finger (Miss Marple)
  • They Came to Baghdad (this is not one of “Christie’s Mysteries”, and is more of a spy novel. Nice to have that variety)
  • The Mysterious Affair at Styles…Christie’s first published novel. This is another Poirot, but worth it for being the first, and this is an updated edition with illustrations

Enjoy!

Update: I decided to do an Amazon Giveaway for And Then There Were None!

Monthly Kindle Deals up to 80% off: May 2017

May 4, 2017

Monthly Kindle Deals up to 80% off: May 2017

Amazon does the Kindle Daily Deal (at AmazonSmile…benefit a non-profit of your choice by shopping*), which used to discount four books a day (often general fiction, a romance, a science fiction/fantasy book, and a kids’ book). Now, it seems like it is generally more books than that, and not categorized…although they have been doing themes this year as well.

They also do Monthly Kindle Book Deals up to 80% off (at AmazonSmile). There used to be about 100 of them, but there are many times that now: 1,133 at the time of writing…261 more than last month!

Those prices only apply to the USA, and one weird thing is that sometimes some of the books seem to sell out at that price (or become unavailable for some other reason).

Another thing is that 727 of them (a 195 more than last month) are available through

Kindle Unlimited (at AmazonSmile: benefit a non-profit of your choice by shopping*)

Amazon lists that information prominently…and it’s now commonly a filter in search results. If they are, then you need to consider whether it is worth buying them…even at these low prices. While they are in KU, you can, if you are a subscriber (and there’s a free month available right now), read them at no additional cost. There are, of course, advantages to owning books, especially if you want to re-read them. A book could move out of KU at any time. Even if you think you want to own it, if you are a KU member, you could always read it first to make sure. 😉 I will mark them with KU.

By the way, in the new version of the

eReaderIQ advanced search

you can make KU a filter. So, you can search for books by an author, a keyword, an average customer review which you can read as part of your KU membership…nice! I’m not associated with eReaderIQ except as a user (we have had some correspondence), but I do think it is the most valuable website for Kindleers.

In terms of which ones are

Prime Reading (at AmazonSmile: benefit a non-profit of your choice by shopping*)

eligible, which is Amazon’s new benefit for Prime members, a rotating list of books you can borrow each month.

This month there are 48, 25 more than last month.

I’m going to list some of the books in this sale that caught my eye…I’m not necessarily recommending them, but I do think they are interesting.

The ones I link (if I actually link to specific books) also don’t block text-to-speech access**…but I think blocking it is becoming rarer.

Okay, books!

  • Bright Line Eating: The Science of Living Happy, Thin & Free by Susan Peirce Thompson Ph.D.
  • The Son by Philipp Meyer | 4.0 stars out of 5 | 1,578 customer reviews
  • Only Love Today: Reminders to Breathe More, Stress Less, and Choose Love by Rachel Macy Stafford
  • A Merciful Death (Mercy Kilpatrick Book 1) by Kendra Elliot (also available through Kindle Unlimited…KU…at no additional cost)
  • Fly By Wire (Jammer Davis Thriller Book 1) by Ward Larsen
  • Ripper: The Secret Life of Walter Sickert [Kindle in Motion] by Patricia Cornwell (I’m reading this one right now, and enjoying it very much. It’s hard to read it and not think that famous artist was Jack the Ripper. That said, a couple of cautions: some of the descriptions (and pictures) are graphic. Second, this is a Kindle in Motion book, which is why I borrowed it through KU. What I do find is that on my Kindle Voyage, it “crashes” repeatedly…simply closes and goes back to the homescreen. Sometimes, I can just open it up again and it’s fine, although it may have gone back to the previous time I opened it. Other times, I need to use the “page flip” feature to get to a future point (you can read that way…it’s just smaller), and then it works)
  • A Haven on Orchard Lane by Lawana Blackwell
  • My Sister’s Grave (Tracy Crosswhite #1) by Robert Dugoni (KU)
  • The Girl from Krakow by Alex Rosenberg
  • The Beach House by Mary Alice Munroe (4.6 stars | 662 reviews)
  • Mistakes Were Made (But Not by Me): Why We Justify Foolish Beliefs, Bad Decisions, and Hurtful Acts by Caroll Tavris and Elliot Aronson
  • 10% Human: How Your Body’s Microbes Hold the Key to Health and Happiness by Alanna Collen
  • Fancy Dancer by Fern Michaels
  • The Bookshop on Rosemary Lane by Ellen Berry
  • The Tracker (Sam Callahan #1) by Chad Zunker (4.6 stars | 439 reviews)
  • The Girl from Krakow by Alex Rosenberg
  • Forty Autumns: A Family’s Story of Courage and Survival on Both Sides of the Berlin Wall by Nina Willner
  • Dawn of Wonder (The Wakening Book 1) by Jonathan Renshaw (4.6 stars | 2,669 reviews)
  • Life and Other Near-Death Experiences by Camille Pagán (4.3 stars | 3,473 reviews)
  • You Are Free: Be Who You Already Are by Rebekah Lyons and Ann Voskamp
  • The Secret to Hummingbird Cake by Celeste Fletcher McHale
  • CyberStorm by Matthew Mather (KU) (4.3 stars | 6,869 customer reviews)
  • The Road to Sparta: Reliving the Ancient Battle and Epic Run That Inspired the World’s Greatest Footrace by Dean Karnazes
  • The Bookshop on the Corner by Jenny Colgan
  • The Novice: Summoner: Book One (The Summoner Trilogy 1) by Taran Matharu
  • Pines (The Wayward Pines Trilogy, Book 1) by Blake Crouch (KU)
  • Life at the Dakota: New York’s Most Unusual Address by Stephen Birmingham
  • Bruce Lee Striking Thoughts: Bruce Lee’s Wisdom for Daily Living (Bruce Lee Library) by Bruce Lee and John Little
  • The Wretched of Muirwood (Legends of Muirwood Book 1) by Jeff Wheeler (KU) (4.4 stars | 2,180 reviews)
  • Wicked: Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West (Wicked Years Book 1) by Gregory Maguire (read my review here: https://ilmk.wordpress.com/2013/06/10/wicked-oz-and-reimagining-public-domain-works/

Remember that you can buy them now as gifts and delay the delivery for the appropriate gift-giving occasion, or print them out and wrap them for whenever you want.

It makes a lot of sense to have so many series starters, but I should also mention that there may be other books in the series in the group…I didn’t list two book in the same series.

If there were others you’d like to mention for me and my readers, please comment on this post.

Prime members, don’t forget to pick up your

Kindle First books (at AmazonSmile*)

You can get one of the six (same as last month) books to own (not borrow) for free…these are books which will be actually released next month. This line was at the bottom of the listings this time (I changed the link): “Please note: Kindle Unlimited (at AmazonSmile: benefit a non-profit of your choice by shopping*) subscribers can borrow these Kindle First books when they are officially released on May 1, 2017″. The choices this month are:

  • Dead Certain by Adam Mitzner (Psychological Thriller)
  • The First World by Isley Robson (Romance)
  • The Hundredth Queen (#1) by Emily R. King (Fantasy)
  • The Lioness of Morocco by Julia Drosten (translated by Christiane Galvani) (Historical Fiction)
  • North Haven by Sarah Moriarty (Contemporary Fiction)
  • The Great Passage by Shion Miura (translated by Juliet Winters Carpenter) (Literary Fiction)

People like to know which one I pick…hmm, this one was a bit tough. I like the premise of The Great Passage (it’s about one of my favorite things, dictionaries), but I’ve had disappointing experiences with translations at Amazon. The Hundredth Queen sounded interesting, and the reviews were good (4.5 stars | 32 reviews). I took the risk with The Great Passage, figuring I could perhaps borrow The Hundredth Queen…

Enjoy!

LAST DAY TO ENTER!

Cryptozoology A To Z: The Encyclopedia of Loch Monsters, Sasquatch, Chupacabras, and Other Authentic Mysteries of Nature by Loren Coleman (at AmazonSmile*)

Note: this is the paperback. For some reason, I couldn’t make the Kindle book for this one public (like I could with Kris’ book). I really wanted this one to be public, because the whole goal is to promote Loren Coleman’s medical expense fund GoFundMe campaign. I’ve never met Loren personally, and we have no shared business interests, although we have had some correspondence. I’ve read Loren’s books for decades, and admire how the cryptozoologist/Fortean helps others, including being the Director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Maine (although in so many smaller ways, too). It’s sad to me that someone who has done so much is having trouble dealing with medical expense (due to multiple operations). That didn’t stop Loren from going to the Bigfoot festival in Willow Creek, California recently, but for people who have enjoyed and benefited from Loren’s work, the medical expenses fund is an opportunity to do a thank you. Over 500 people have entered and they’ve all tweeted (as a requirement to entry) a link to the fund’s page. I do not ask people to endorse the fund or to ask other people to contribute (or for them to contribute themselves)…I’m just hoping to raise the profile so people who might want to contribute and don’t know about it get the word. Unfortunately, no one has donated yet as a result of this, but it could still happen…

As always, check the price before you click/tap/eye gaze (the last in virtual/augmented reality) before you buy: the prices may not apply in your country, and it’s possible the book will move out of the sale before you see this.
