Today’s KDD: up to 80% off books by guests of The Daily Show
Hopefully, you’ll see this soon enough to take advantage of one of today’s
This is a clever one.
Jon Stewart has left The Daily Show.
A lot will be said about Stewart’s tenure, but the comedian/host was undeniably important to authors and publishers.
I’ve read repeatedly that Stewart actually read all the books that appeared on the show. In Entertainment Weekly, there was a telling recollection from Rob Corddry: “I caught him reading a book once, and and he was literally turning a page every five to 10 seconds. He was almost embarrassed to be caught.”
I think a lot of us have had that experience…feeling sort of ashamed to be caught reading. That’s a bad thing, and maybe that only happens in school. Hopefully, not as much as it used to happen. E-books can help with that: you can be a stealth reader. You know, they might think you are doing something cool, like playing Candy Crush. ;)
Amazon is commemorating Jon Stewart’s stay by giving up to 80% off on 52 books by guests of the show.
Please check the price before you click or tap that Buy button! I’m getting this out relatively late in the day, and it may not apply in your country (I have readers all over the world). Of course, even if you don’t see them in time for the discount, there are many books here which would be good to read regardless. ;)
Remember that you can buy these as a gift now, and delay the delivery until the appropriate gift giving occasion.
