Random Amazon (US) Ebook Sale Alert!
Dangerous Ambition: Rebecca West and Dorothy Thompson: New Women in Search of Love and Power - Susan Hertog
The Most Beautiful Walk in the World: A Pedestrian in Paris - John Baxter
Becoming Queen Victoria: The Tragic Death of Princess Charlotte and the Unexpected Rise of Britain's Greatest Monarch - Kate Williams
The Professor and the Madman: A Tale of Murder, Insanity and the Making of the Oxford English Dictionary - Simon Winchester
Reading Like a Writer: A Guide for People Who Love Books and for Those Who Want to Write Them - Francine Prose

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:

 

Dangerous Ambition: Rebecca West and Dorothy Thompson: New Women in Search of Love and Power by Susan Hertog

Price: .99

 

The Most Beautiful Walk in the World: A Pedestrian in Paris by John Baxter

Price: 1.99

 

Becoming Queen Victoria: The Tragic Death of Princess Charlotte and the Unexpected Rise of Britain's Greatest Monarch by Kate Williams

 Price: 1.99

 

The Professor and the Madman by Simon Winchester

Price 1.99

 

Reading Like a Writer by Francine Prose

Price 1.99

 

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.

 

As always, I found all of these via a heads up email from ereaderIQ (website recommended by Dear Author), which I have a continuing love/hate relationship with (I have soooo many TBR books, argh).

 

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?)
