So here's another fun ebook sale alert - apparently we should always be aware that this is going to happen around July 4 - for the US Amazon customers at least. At first I thought it was only about American history but then - well, here's what's popped up lately, that's (hopefully) still on sale by the time I hit post:
The Most Beautiful Walk in the World: A Pedestrian in Paris by John Baxter
The Professor and the Madman by Simon Winchester
Reading Like a Writer by Francine Prose
I can't swear to the epicness of all of these - many have been on my list for a long time and are there because I read some text or review that made me interested. And these sales end VERY quickly - a Simon Winchester book that was 1.99 on the 4th is now back to 12.99.
I gave in and bought all of those except the Prof and the Madman which I've already read, and the Reading Like a Writer, only because I've bought a chunk of ebooks last month, and really need to not give in. Which of course I will again, because I am weak when it comes to sales. Especially when I read about them on my email on my phone, when I'm sitting at a lunch where I'd really rather be reading.
Randomly I should add that all the books I get on sale I put on a shelf called Via Kindle Sale - to make me feel better about the growing pile of them. So feel free to check on that shelf if I sometimes add books but forget to post. (In fact there are three I've added that aren't listed above, still on sale price.) (I have no idea how to link to my own shelves. Can I even do that?)
