Summer Reads for $3.99 or Less

If you are anything like me, you’re not too thrilled about the rising e-book prices.  If you’re open to trying some new reading material, there is a good selection of Kindle e-books available for $3.99 or less.  A good way to stock up for the beach or pool.

The summer reading list includes a variety of genres including fiction, mysteries and thrillers, nonfiction, historical fiction, and of course chick lit, other wise known as “women’s fiction”.

To be honest, the only author I actually recognize is Karen McQuestion, who wrote A Scattered Life, a big bestseller for awhile.  A Scattered Life is a tale of the importance of friendships and learning not to judge a book by its cover so to speak when it comes to appearances.  Both A Scattered Life and her other book, Easily Amused are on the list.

I laughed out loud when I read the reviews of Why I Love Singlehood.  Anyone who has been mixed up in relationship issues can probably relate to this book.  This will be one I can add to my “easy reading” list.

Final Price, by J. Gregory Smith was the 2009 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Contest.  The thriller features a psychopathic car salesman who fights his own inner demons and does not take rejection well at all.  Final Price provides a unique perspective by using the car salesman’s point of view as opposed to a customer’s.

AWOL on the Appalachian Trail is a must read because David Miller writes such a vivid account of his adventures of hiking the entire trail.  I’ve always wanted to hike at least a portion of the AT, so I’m definitely adding this to my Kindle summer reading list.

According to Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN), these books are all available at a reduced price for only a limited time.  Not sure on the exact date that the offer ends.  I’m off to bury myself in a good beach read.
