Amazon’s doing something special this week. They’re lowering the price on lots of Kindle ebooks, offering new discounts every day. You can check out the selection at tinyurl.com/DailyKindleDeal . And on December 26th, Amazon’s also offering some customers a big discount on Kindle accessories.
The discounted ebooks are in four different categories — including 10 biographies and memoirs. But Amazon’s also offering an 86% discount on Diary of a Wimpy Kid, the first book in the popular series by author/illustrator Jeff Kinney. It’s on sale for just $1.99, and they’re also offering the same price on a dystopian science fiction novel called The Handmaid’s Tale. Amazon describes it as “not only a radical and brilliant departure for respected Canadian poet and novelist Margaret Atwood, it is a novel of such power that the reader will be unable to forget its images and its forecast.” And Amazon’s even discounted the “mature and imaginative romantic thriller” The Host, which was written by Stephenie Meyer the author of the Twilight series.
But there’s 10 memoirs that are also on sale — eight for just $1.99, and two for $2.99.
Let’s Pretend This Never Happened by Jenny Lawson (a.k.a. The Bloggess) – $1.99
Seriously…I’m Kidding by Ellen DeGeneres – $1.99
Waging Heavy Peace by Neil Young – $1.99
How to Be a Woman by Caitlin Moran – $1.99
My Horizontal Life by Chelsea Handler – $2.99
Just Kids by Patti Smith – $1.99
Until Tuesday: A Wounded Warrior and the Golden Retriever Who Saved Him by Luis Carlos Montalvan – $1.99
Washington: A Life by Ron Chernow – $1.99
Bad Habits: Confessions of a Recovering Catholic by Jenny McCarthy – $1.99
When We Were the Kennedys: a Memoir from Mexico, Maine by Monica Wood – $2.99
And finally, Amazon’s also offering big savings on accessories for your Kindle — including a wide selection of leather cases! It’s being offered through the “Amazon Local” page (at local.amazon.com), which is available in 29 different states. Leather cases can be pretty expensive, but Amazon’s offering a big 40% discount on models for nearly every kind of Kindle.
I guess Amazon’s offering discounts on both cases and ebooks, because they’re hoping we’ll start spending even more time on our Kindles in 2013!
