May 2014's Monthly Kindle Books for $3.99 or less - 110 items currently - listings by Most Popular or by Average Customer Rating. Also, free non-classics by publication date + discounted-book alerts, Amazon listings for Mother's Day, New Kindle Outlet...
I often highlight this monthly deal at or near the beginning of the month for those who don't know about it or might not remember.
For those who want to quickly look first at only the ones that are star-rated at 4 or above, here is Amazon's page for exactly that.
On the main monthly Kindle book deals page, separate categories are highlighted, using Amazon's usual horizontally-scrolling pick-lists, for the following topics highlighted on the main page. They link to "See all" at the bottom of each horizontally-scrolled category row [ I'm adding direct links to the full category listings ]:
' Now you can seamlessly switch between reading featured Kindle books and listening to them without ever losing your place... First, purchase the Kindle book for $3.99 or less. Then add the narration from Audible for $3.99 or less to enable the feature. '
But the Whispersync category is no longer on the main Monthly Deals page, although the deals still exist (there are about 45 of these Whispersync-ready books in this month's deals). They ARE included in the overall scrolled monthly deals that can be sorted by several options at the bottom of that main page.
THEN, at the bottom of the new main monthly Kindle book-deals page, they offer the FULL current monthly listing, defaulting to sorting by "New and Popular" and there are 110 in all, currently, but the number may vary.
FREE KINDLE BOOKS (Non-classics) for May (and April) I've updated the "Temporarily-free books -- Non-classics" search results to show free contemporary Kindle books for MAY, sorted by publication-date, as of May 5, 2014. There are only a few shown on the first day or two of any month, and these include pre-orders due that month. On the first few days of the month, most of these are listed as "free preview" of whatever chapters chosen, some are short stories, and a few (overnight) not-entire-family-safe titles may show up.
The ongoing Kindle Daily Deals page for any given day usually shows a lot of books since it includes children's books, a couple of genre-specific deals, and the monthly daily deals as well.
DISCOUNTED / Price Dropped Kindle eBooks III - the ongoing Kindle Forum message thread This is an ongoing message thread in which Kindle owners share information on recent drops in pricing on specific Kindle books, often with some added info by the person posting it.
Here's a link to the thread, starting at an April 30 posting that includes a book that's still on sale today May 5..
These include some large price drops on books with fairly high customer ratings.
The books discussed in this forum thread tend to be very short-term discounts.
That forum topic link is to a specific post to start, in this case, a book alert on April 30, as mentioned. Previous titles mentioned for that day had smaller discounts, but you can look at previous posts or days, or keep up with ongoing alerts after that, because Amazon keeps track of the last message# that you read, so that you can start from there next time. While many of the better deals seem around $1.99-$4.99, there usually are a decent number of larger-publishing house deals included (primarily price-matching) that tend to end in a DAY, so you'd need to double-check the current pricing of ANY Kindle books that interest you to see if the discounts are still active.
Again, Kindle book prices are discounted for only a very short time, too often, and are promos, and that's another reason to watch the list. Most of the large-publisher discounts last only one or two days even when they originate the discount.
