The deal so deep happens once in a few months. The today’s reason is clear: Amazon is celebrating National Reading Month 2019. The company has to offer something special after the deals on Kindle e-readers have ended (Paperwhite) or a stock has been emptied (the basic Kindle). Last time, Amazon offered the deal on Kindle memoirs and biographies in mid-November 2018.
Eighteen titles on today’s list are included in Kindle Unlimited. It’s probably one of those moments when you feel pity you haven’t subscribed to Kindle Unlimited yet or canceled the subscription.
The most interesting book in today’s Kindle Daily Deal is A River in Darkness – a fascinating story of one man’s escape from North Korea. Written by Masaji Ishikawa, and translated to English by Risa Kobayashi, the book describes thirty-six years the author spent living in North Korea, and challenges he faced repatriating to Japan after barely escaping the totalitarian regime with his life. Today, you can get A River in Darkness for $1.99 ($6.99).
The Tenth Island, written by a Pulitzer Prize–winning writer Diana Marcum, is an exuberant memoir of personal loss and longing, and finding connection on the remote Azores Islands. The book costs today $1.99 instead of $4.99.
Born Survivors by Wendy Holden is an extraordinary story of courage, defiance, and hope set during World War 2 in Nazi-occupied Eastern Europe. The book enjoys an average rating of 4.8/5 and is the #1 bestseller in the Jewish History category. Having in mind that a regular price is set at $15.99, the today’s deal lets you save as much as 88%, as you can get the book for only $1.99.

Coriolanus released the fistful of cabbage into the pot of boiling water and swore that one day it would never pass his lips again. But this was not that day. He needed to eat a large bowl of the anemic stuff, and drink every drop of broth, to prevent his stomach from growling during the reaping ceremony. It was one of a long list of precautions he took to mask the fact that his family, despite residing in the penthouse of the Capitol’s most opulent apartment building, was as poor as district scum. That at eighteen, the heir to the once-great house of Snow had nothing to live on but his wits.
His shirt for the reaping was worrying him. He had an acceptable pair of dark dress pants bought on the black market last year, but the shirt was what people looked at. Fortunately, the Academy provided the uniforms it required for daily use. For today’s ceremony, however, students were instructed to be dressed fashionably but with the solemnity the occasion dictated. Tigris had said to trust her, and he did. Only his cousin’s cleverness with a needle had saved him so far. Still, he couldn’t expect miracles.
The shirt they’d dug from the back of the wardrobe—his father’s, from better days—was stained and yellowed with age, half the buttons missing, a cigarette burn on one cuff. Too damaged to sell in even the worst of times, and this was to be his reaping shirt? This morning he had gone to her room at daybreak, only to find both his cousin and the shirt missing. Not a good sign. Had Tigris given up on the old thing and braved the black market in some last-ditch effort to find him proper clothing? And what on earth would she possess worth trading for it? Only one thing—herself—and the house of Snow had not yet fallen that far. Or was it falling now as he salted the cabbage?
The most technologically efficient machine that man has ever invented is the book.
