Amazon Holiday Deals on discounted Kindle ebooks

I’ve been waiting for this. Amazon’s already been offering discounts on their Kindle devices for the holiday shopping season. But now on a new web page, they’ve also announced a big sale on hundreds of ebooks! “Now through December 22…save up to 88% on more than 500 Kindle books!”

There’s discounted ebooks in lots of categories, including Mysteries and Thrillers, Science Fiction, Comics and Graphic Novels, and even Romance. Plus, there’s a special category they’ve named “Gift Ideas & Editors’ Picks.” I was surprised to find that Agatha Christie actually wrote a mystery novel called Hercule Poirot’s Christmas. And now through December 22, Amazon’s selling it for just $2.99.

Plus, Amazon’s also discounted some Kindle ebooks that were the basis for famous movies. For $1.99, you can buy the novel “Howl’s Moving Castle,” and there’s also a science fiction title that I recognize. The classic movie The Incredible Shrinking Man was based on a science fiction novel by Richard Matheson. Amazon’s reduced it’s price through December 22 to just $2.99.

Surprisingly, in the nonfiction category there’s some discounted ebooks that were written by rock musicians. Steven Tyler remembers his time as a judge on American Idol — and touring with his band Aerosmith — in the book Does the Noise in My Head Bother You. And Amazon’s also discounted a memoir by Marilyn Manson titled The Long Hard Road Out of Hell. Both these ebooks are just $2.99.

I see over 32 cookbooks that have been discounted — plus 45 romance novels, and even some literary fiction. There’s ebooks from children, like Beverly Cleary’s The Mouse and the Motorcycle ($1.99). Brave New Worlds by Aldous Huxley has also been discounted to $2.99. And there’s even an intriguing ebook called Geek Mafia that’s on sale for $1.99.

I spend a lot of time shopping in the free section of the Kindle Store — because I’m trying not to spend too much money on ebooks. This might be a good time to stock up on some great titles — especially since there’s now 500 discounted ebooks to choose from!
