Daily Deals: The Last Good Day and Homerun Battle 3D

The Last Good DayToday Amazon offers The Last Good Day by Peter Blauner just for $1.99

When a decapitated corpse washes up on the banks of the Hudson River, a New York suburb is sent into an uproar. Commuters waiting for the morning train into Manhattan in the small Hudson River town of Riverside are the first to see the body. She drifts out of the river, naked and headless, shocking the onlookers before they board their train to work.  Riverside Police Chief Harold Baltimore can’t get away from her so easily. A black chief in a white town, he’s new to his job and not at all sure he’s suited to it. At first it looks like a routine mob murder, but when one of his detectives identifies the corpse as a local woman, the news rocks quiet little Riverside—and the town won’t ever be quiet again.  This ebook features an illustrated biography of Peter Blauner including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author’s personal collection.

Amazon Signs a Deal With Paramount

Amazon Prime Instant Video has hit a growth spurt again.  This time, the major online retailer has signed a deal with Paramount.  This is huge, because some of the most popular movies of all time come from this production company.

Forrest Gump, one of my favorite movies, is part of the list of newly added selection.  Other well known titles include: Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Top Gun, Mission Impossible 3, and Mean Girls. moreMean Girls is another favorite of mine.

The benefits of paying for a separate Netflix plan are shrinking rapidly.  For $79 a year, you can get free two day shipping, check out a book a month on your Kindle, and enjoy unlimited movie streaming.  I take advantage of all three of these services quite frequently.

I’ve found some popular Kindle books such as the Hunger Games Trilogy in the Kindle Owner’s Lending Library.  The downside is that you have to wait a month to get the next book in the trilogy.  I’m okay with that, but I know many Hunger Games fan want to jump in to the following books immediately.

In addition to popular series, there are also a ton of books by independent authors that are fresh discoveries.  Kindle Direct Publishing has opened up a new world of publishing, and has given many authors a chance to excel.  In the past, authors were an elite group.

In the first half of 2012, Amazon Prime Instant Video has grown from roughly 13,000 to 17,000 titles, and is still growing.  Earlier deals include Viacom and Discovery.  These two production companies, along with Paramount bring an eclectic collection of movies that spans across many different genres.

Prime Instant Video is compatible with both PC’s and Mac’s.  If you have a Kindle Fire, you can also enjoy them on there as well, for more portability.
