2012 Best American writing series

Today is a red-letter day for all you Kindle owners. is offering seven, count them seven, ebooks from the 2012 Best American series on sale for $1.99 each. So you have your choice of essays, short stories, and mysteries, or writing on travel, sports, and science and nature. There is also one called Nonrequired Reading which appears to be a mish-mash of essays, short stories, and snippets and features an introduction by Ray Bradbury.   

I have ordered two of the e-volumes: Essays introduced by David Brooks and Mysteries introduced by Robert Crais.

Amazon sends me a Kindle deal every day and this is the first one that has sent me to my credit card. I am constantly teased by the British Book Bloggers who list some wonderful Amazon UK e-book on sale for 99p and we here in America cannot take advantage of the bargain. So now it is our turn.


  1. I wish I could get this for my e-reader, but alas, that's not our deal of the day! Every once in a while I accidentally come across something amazing for only $2.99 and count my blessings.

    1. This is crazy, but I have a Nook AND a Kindle. I bought the Kindle Fire for myself as a Christmas present for the very reason that Amazon has these deals.

      Of course, Free From the Library is the best!
