Today is "Cyber-Monday," a major sale day for online merchants. And to mark the day, Amazon has an amazing deal for mystery readers - well, for ALL readers, to be sure, but I'm primarily concerned about my mystery-loving friends. Anyway, if you have a Kindle (if not, they're on sale, too, folks), Amazon has announced literally hundreds of Cyber-Monday-ONLY deals on great mysteries and all kinds of other books at unbelievably low prices, including lots of classics for $2.99 or less each.
It means that my TBR pile continues to grow, thanks to this new stack of Kindling, if you will. Fortunately, the pile is a virtual one, and I am in no danger that it will collapse and bury me under the sheer weight of unread books. But at those prices - which, I believe, are only for today - I'm stocking up. Yes, that includes Golden Age authors, like Dorothy L. Sayers, along with writers such as Donald E. Westlake, Anne Perry, Ruth Rendell, Charlotte MacLeod, Ira Levin, Lawrence Block, Patricia Wentworth, Robert Goldsborough, Ellery Queen, Stuart Kaminsky...you get the idea. And that's just from the first 10 pages of what appears to be a 53 page list, and that's just for mysteries.
Again, today only. Stock up while you can! (Disclosure, I probably get a nickel or two if you buy any of those from Amazon through my link. I assure you I've already spent a lot more than that to get some of these for my Kindle. But caveat lector, I suppose...no, not related to Hannibal...)
