During the week after Thanksgiving, Cyber Monday kicks off an online only sale on a variety of items including electronics, books, and more.
There is a huge sale going on this week on Kindle books in all genres. First, there are the editor’s picks. The one Kindle book that stood out to me in that list is The Art of Racing in the Rain. Garth Stein writes this compelling novel from the point of view of a dog named Enzo. Enzo sticks by his human companion, Denny, as he faces trials and triumphs in his racing career, marriage, and in other aspects of his life.
I’ve heard good things about this book, and have it downloaded and ready to read on my Kindle. I was excited to see it as part of the sale this week.
In addition to The Art of Racing in the Rain, there is another book in the Editor’s picks called Undrunk. It is a first hand account of what goes on behind the closed doors of an AA meeting, and the steps alcoholics have to take to remain sober. A.J. Adams gives an honest take on his experiences and uses this book as an opportunity to explain the process to readers who have not attended AA meetings, and to dispel ugly stereotypes of Alcoholics Anonymous. There’s also a bit of humor mixed in. Humor is always a good thing.
Other genres include Fiction, Romance, Biography, Mystery and Thrillers, Young Adult, Health and Wellness, and Children’s books. So, there is something for everyone. I noticed a lot of books that put a unique spin on classics like Pride and Prejudice and Sherlock Holmes. There are also some good cookbooks and self help books that are worth checking out.
In the Young Adult books sections there is a book called Julie of the Wolves that I remember reading back in elementary school. It was a good book, and includes some good wolf lore. It also deals with issues that all kids face at the adolescent stage.
In time for the holiday season, The Legend of the Candy Cane is a fun book for little kids to enjoy. It makes a great bedtime story for parents and their children.
The books I mentioned are just a small sample of the vast collection of Kindle books available. With the holidays coming up and time off from work and school, this is a great time to load up on some reading material. All books are $3.99 or less. The deals run until December 3rd.
