57 Sale Children’s or Young Adult Kindle Books

The Little PrinceToday is the start of Amazon’s 12 Days of Christmas sale. (I have to note that the 12 days of Christmas is a Christian holiday seasons that starts at Christmas Day and goes to Epiphany. So it always annoys me when stores or others appropriate names for things and then use them incorrectly.)

But Today is Children’s Toys and Games and Books.

Trials of ApolloThere are 57 Kindle books in today’s Kindle Sale. Including most of the Rick Riordian books. I am a big fan of these books. The two most recent series have the first books in on sale for $2.99, Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard (Very positive review) and The Trials of Apollo: The Hidden Oracle (which I have not read yet.) But almost all of the rest of Riordian’s children’s books are also on sale.

51fn8usx0rlOther sale books include:
Inside Out and Back Again by Thanhha Lai ($1.99) which is a Newberry Honor book and a National Book Award winner. It tells the author’s story of fleeing Vietnam after the fall of Saigon and immigrating to Alabama. And it is all in verse.

One Crazy SummerOne Crazy Summer by Rita Williams-Garcia ($1.99) is another book that has won or been a finalist for a number of awards. Three girls travel from Brooklyn to California in 1968 to find a mother who abandoned them 7 years earlier. The acclaim that One Crazy Summer received was the impetus of the #ReadDiverseBooks movement.

There are also more traditional children’s books like The Little Price ($1.99) and Sarah Plain and Tall ($1.99)

Also if you are more interested in print books for your kids (or yourself) Amazon has a $5 off any $15 or more print book purchase until tomorrow. You have to use the promo code GIFTBOOK in the checkout to get the discount.

Amazon Prime Day

KU-retail-lp_pinata._CB268739092_Today is Amazon’s big sale. There are lots of sale that are good, but here are a couple that might make sense for Bookwi.se Readers. (These are only for Amazon Prime members. You can sign up for a free Amazon Prime Trial if you want.)

Amazon subscription book program is up to 40% off (when pre-purchasing from 6 to 24 months.)  The 6 month subscription for $45 is tempting for me. When combined with the sale on the basic Kindle is on sale for $50 ($30 off).  So you could read for six month from over 1 million ebooks with a new reader for less than $100.

Or, if you want a lighted screen the 3rd generation Paperwhite is on sale for $90 ($30 off). The Kindle Voyage is on sale for $150 ($50 off).  But I am not sure who I would recommend that device to. It has page turn buttons and is slightly lighter than the Paperwhite, but has the same screen as the Paperwhite. So I would probably recommend buying the Paperwhite and saving the $60 for books.)

Amazon also has their basic Tablet on sale for $33.33, a new low price (normally $50).  The basic tablet is good for reading books and watching videos, but I have owned two different Amazon Fire Tablets and was frustrated with both for being under powered. But at $33.33 it is a hard to pass up deal (and will sell out.)

Personally, I love my Amazon TV stick, which on sale for $25. But if I were purchasing today, I would probably spend the extra $10 and get the voice remote.

I have not noticed Kindle books being part of the sale. But I did see Water Isaacson’s 900 page biography of Kissinger is on sale for $3.99. The Fortress Press sale and July monthly sale are still going on.

Any particularly good deals you noticed.
