Today’s Kindle Daily Deal: choose out of 83 non-fiction books

Today’s Kindle Daily Deal: choose out of 83 non-fiction books

Today’s

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

is one of my favorites: non-fiction.

I read a lot of non-fiction, although interestingly, my Significant Other really doesn’t like reading it. I think it’s because, for my SO, reading is an “escape”, and something which is fiction is less…potentially distressing.

As always, check the price before you click/tap/eye gaze that Buy button (or voice order it): the price may not apply in your market, and it’s possible a book will have moved out of the sale before you see it.

You can buy the book at this discounted price and delay the delivery for the appropriate gift-giving occasion, or even have it sent to you, print it out, wrap if you want, for whenever you want.

Titles include:

  • Dreamland: The True Tale of America’s Opiate Epidemic by Sam Quinones | 4.7 stars out of 5 | 1,505 customer reviews | $1.99
  • The Woman Who Smashed Codes by Jason Fagone
  • West with the NIght by Beryl Markham
  • How Dogs Love Us: A Neuroscientist and His Adopted Dog Decode the Canine Brain by Gregory Burns | 4.3 stars | 2,170 reviews | also available through Kindle Unlimited at no additional cost for members | I’ve read this one and recommend it

  • My Own Words by Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Mary Hartnett

  • Undaunted by Jackie Speier
  • The Case for Miracles: A Journalist Investigates Evidence for the Supernatural by Lee Strobel
  • Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris
  • My Mother Was Nuts by Penny Marshall
  • Blood, Sweat, and Pixels: The Triumphant, Turbulent Stories Behind How Video Games Are Made by Jason Schreier
