Kindle Tip: Temporarily-discounted Books Alert - 'Leaving Microsoft to Change the World' + link to other Kindle books discounted today

Temporarily discounted-book alerts include this unusual one

Leaving Microsoft to Change the World, by John Wood, published Oct 2009, and $11.55 in paperback.

From Publishers Weekly, in a starred review:
"It's a rare business book that not only provides savvy insights for better business practices but transcends the category altogether, to rank as an infectiously inspiring read.  Wood takes the reader on an engaging journey from his life as a rather ordinary marketing director at Microsoft through the transformative decision to launch the nonprofit organization Room to Read (, which has created more than 2,000 schools and libraries for children across Asia."

  He walked away from his Microsoft job, which he credits with giving him the business skills and drive to do this, in Nepal.

  The book has 85 customer reviews, with an average rating of 4.6 stars. According to the discounted books thread's notes for today, the last reported price was $9.40 and I don't know how long the promo price will stay.  If you click on the link to the thread you can work backward to see what other Kindle books of interest are still discounted today.

Am working on a collection of news articles for later tonight or tomorrow morning but wanted to send this out separately due to the temporary nature of discounts.

NOTE: TO AVOID SPAM being posted instantly, this blog uses the "DELAY" feature.

Am often away much of the day, and postings won't show up right away. Posts done to use referrer-links may never show up.

Usually, am online enough to release comments within a day though, so the hard-to-read match-text tests for commenting won't be needed this way.

Feedback and questions are welcome. Thanks for participating.

Technical Problems?
If you're having problems leaving a Comment, Google's blogger-help asks that you clear the '' cookies on your browser's Tools or Options menu bar and that will fix the Comment-box problems (until they have a permanent fix).

IF that doesn't work either, then UNcheck the "keep me signed in" box -- Google-help says that should allow your comment to post (it's a workaround to a current bug).
Apologies for the problems.

TIP: There's a size limit. If longer than 3500 characters or so, in a text editor, make two posts out of it.
