Announced yesterday as the biggest Kindle deal of 2018, the Cyber Monday sale features almost 500 ebooks, including top reads, customer favorites, and all-time bestsellers.
Amazon claimed 350 books would go on sale today, but the actual number is exactly 492. This is the number of results you will see on a Kindle Daily Deal front page when you scroll down to reveal the detailed list of included titles.
The books usually cost $2.99, but you can also find the titles with prices reduced to $1.99. The bestsellers are priced between $3.99 and $4.99, with a few exceptions reaching $6.99.
500 is large enough to group the books into categories, so let’s have a quick look at what’s featured:
- mystery & thrillers – 116 books, including The Other Woman by Daniel Silva, Sandra Brown’s Tailspin, and The Shack by William P. Young,
- literature & fiction – 211 books, with Every Breath by Nicholas Sparks, Daniel Silva’s The Other Woman, Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, or Kristin Hannah’s The Great Alone,
- biographies & memoirs – 60 titles, including Hillbilly Elegy by J.D. Vance, Ann Voskamp’s One Thousand Gifts, and An American Princess by Annejet van der Zijl and Michele Hutchison,
- romance – 88 books, with Come Sundown by Nora Roberts, Robyn Carr’s A Summer in Sonoma, and J.S. Scott’s No Ordinary Billionaire.

If you will be hunting for Kindle deals in December, especially during or after the Christmas, the best destination is the directory of Monthly Kindle Deals. The December list is usually much more attractive than what you can see in other months.
