Ian Fleming's James Bond Novels $1.99 Each Today (12/30) Only (Amazon/Kindle)

Kindle versions of all 14 of Ian Fleming's James Bond novels are $1.99 each at Amazon today (12/30) only.

Link to all of Today's Kindle Deals


Apologies in advance if the Mods feel this should have gone in the Kindle daily deal thread. I figured that more people would see it as a new thread.

Casino Royale, Live and Let Die, Dr No, From Russia With Love, On Her Majesties Secret Service, and most of the stories in For Your Eyes Only are my favorites. But all of them are great, EXCEPT for The Spy Who Loved Me and Diamonds Are Forever.

I pretty much agree with your list of the best ones. The first half of Diamonds are Forever is excellent. It doesn't get draggy until the climactic train chase.

Some of the best stories are in For Your Eyes Only. Did they ever use the plot points of The Hildebrand Rarity in a movie?

It's back. I got an email from Amazon Local today for this deal. Very tempting, as I've never read the Bond books, but have wanted to.

Are we looking at different Amazon sites, or was this only for a set ammount of time?

The sale prices won't show up if you go directly to Amazon. You have to get the free Amazon Local voucher first. As of right now, there are 6 days left to get it. (Must be redeemed by 2/25.)

Hopefully, this link will work:

Trying it now. Thanks for the heads up. Never heard of A. Local before.

I bought all 14. I don't have a Kindle yet but I have the Kindle app on my phone. I'm a physical media guy and I hate that you can't essentially rip a book onto your Kindle after buying the physical copy iPod-style but for $2 I probably wouldn't mind buying them all twice. I had all the physical copies in my cart a few weeks ago (I have Casino Royale from the last group of releases but was gonna buy it again to match the other 13) but I couldn't pull the trigger on 14 books at $8 each at the time. Now I'll probably just keep an eye out for a sale on the physical books. Of course now I want a Kindle as well which is probably the whole point of this promotion.

Still, right now I have the entire Ian Fleming Bond canon on my iPhone which is pretty cool.
