Amazon Kindle Deals (daily or otherwise)

Amazon just launched this Wednesday. I think it warrants its own thread. I started yesterday (didn't find out about it until then). I'll keep this first post updated now and then, and one of us can post the daily deal info daily (link remains the same).

The "regular" price may be lower than the digital price, it's the regular Amazon price.

http://amazon.com/kindledailydeal

Wednesday 8/25/11: The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane, $1.39, regular price $5.59

Thursday, 8/26/11: Like Water For Elephants, $2.99, regular price $6.99

Friday, 8/27/11: Elizabeth Street - $1.99, regular price $7.99

Saturday: Food, Inc. - $1.49, regular price $8.52.

re: Amazon Kindle Deals (daily or otherwise)

Yeah, as I mentioned in the e-book thread I bought Elizabeth Street yesterday (thought about getting it a while back so procrastination pays off), and that's a nice price for Food Inc.

re: Amazon Kindle Deals (daily or otherwise)

I check the Kindle top 100 paid and free and it usually is a good indicator of what is on sale. I have picked up a ton of free short stories or the first book in a series. It seems a good marketing ploy, give you a little taste and try to get you to get the whole collection(short stories) or series.

Ah, I forgot to make a decision about the Food Inc deal and missed it. Got The Lincoln Lawyer, though.

Thanks, GatorDeb. I passed on the previous two deals but am thinking about Poke the Box.

re: Amazon Kindle Deals (daily or otherwise)

Dysfunctions of a team's regular price is only $8.XX ebooks are rarely sold at the digital list price. It's $4.49 right now.

Today's deal is Battleship Earth, which apparently has many fans as the book form is good campy fun as opposed to the movie.

$3.82/$0.99 http://www.amazon.com/Battlefield-Ea...d_i=1000677541

re: Amazon Kindle Deals (daily or otherwise)

While not a part of this daily deal program, figured it's worth mentioning that Richard Stark's (a.k.a. Donald Westlake) The Score (a Parker novel) is currently available for free on the Kindle. A great way to introduce yourself to this fantastic crime series if you're not familiar with it.

Thanks. I've been wanting to try the Parker books. I noticed that this is the fifth book in the series. In your opinion, will I be missing anything if I start here instead of reading them from the beginning?

Already answered? I'm sure there'll be something you're missing, but I don't think it's like a serial or anything.

Bought it. Thanks, Geofferson.

Also not a daily deal, but Amazon is offering 18 Kurt Vonnegut books for $3.99 each: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=s9_al_bw...rd_i=133141011

re: Amazon Kindle Deals (daily or otherwise)

The Parker series doesn't have to be read in order to be appreciated. There is a modest amount of carryover in story from book to book, but not enough to worry about.

re: Amazon Kindle Deals (daily or otherwise)

That's a great deal. They are definitely worth 3 bucks each! I'm tempted to get them myself, even though I already have multiple paper copies of each.
