Today is a World Book and Copyright Day 2017. Proclaimed by UNESCO in 1995, it’s a festive celebration of the joy of reading, gathering libraries, non-profit organizations, public figures, and businesses from over 100 countries.
Amazon is heavily supporting the initiative, spreading the word about charity organizations and using social media to ask users why they love books (find the answers with the hashtag #LovetoRead).
The 23rd of April falls this year on Sunday – a day of the week Amazon usually offers most attractive deals for book lovers.
Below, we’ve collected our favorite ones, both for Kindle and print editions. For a complete list of book-related deals make sure to check out Amazon Gold Box.
Let’s start with the Kindle offers. Today’s Kindle Daily Deal is loaded with top-rated ebooks, some of them very attractive.
First of all, you can grab two books from Nelson DeMille’s crime series about the NYPD homicide detective John Corey. Plum Island (Book 1) costs $1.99, instead of
$6.99, and Radiant Angel (Book 7) is $2.99.
No Man’s Land, Book 4 from David Baldacci’s John Puller suspense series is $4.99, 40% down from
$8.99. Lovers of Blake Crouch works can get his historical thriller Abandon for $1.99.
Last, but not least, one of the featured Kindle books is a striking, enormously affecting novel by Joyce Carol Oates, A Book of American Martyrs, first released in February 2017. The deal price of the book is $2.99.
If you are into nonfiction, take a look at the Amazon Gold Box deal that features fourteen books with prices slashed by up to 50%.
Digital Disruption: Unleashing the Next Wave of Innovation by James McQuivey, with a foreword by Josh Bernoff, costs $7.27, down
$24.95, and you can save 71%.
James Duane’s compact manifesto that will teach you how to protect your rights and freedom, You Have the Right to Remain Innocent, is only $4.99. The same low price is offered for Unlocking Potential: 7 Coaching Skills That Transform Individuals, Teams, and Organizations by Michael K. Simpson.
It’s worth noting no book costs more than $7.99, and all are Prime-eligible, and that means you can enjoy a free two-day shipping within the US.
Since May 2011, Amazon runs an imprint called Thomas & Mercer that focuses on mystery and thriller novels. A vast majority of titles are published in Kindle format. The lesser known fact is that the books are also available in print.
A Death in Sweden by Kevin Wignall, is a novel about Dan Hendricks, a former CIA operative and an agent for fire, who is investigating a bus crash in northern Sweden. The book usually costs
$15.99, but you can get it today for $6.99.
The same price is set for Only the Brave by Mel Sherratt and J. B. Turner’s Hard Kill.
