MAY 2013's 100 Kindle Books deal, for $3.99 or less (See UK page below.)
I highlight the monthly deal at or near the beginning of the month for those who don't know about it or might not remember.
The May pricing for this group of 100 Kindle books ranges from $0.99 to $3.99, as usual for this monthly deal, and are "hand-selected" by Amazon's Editors each month.
What you'll see on that special monthly-deals page (UK version is here) are new for May 2013.
FREE KINDLE BOOKS (Non-classics) for May (and April)
I've updated the "Temporarily-free books -- Non-classics" search results to show free contemporary Kindle books for MAY, sorted by publication-date, as of May 1, 2013. There are only a few shown on the first day or two of any month, and these include pre-orders due that month. As ever, on the first day of the month, most of these are listed as "free preview" of whatever chapters chosen, some are short stories, and a few (overnight) not-entire-family-safe titles may show up.
Here, also, are the current Search results for still free Kindle non-classics, by publication date during the last month (April).
The Kindle Daily Deal page
for any given day now shows a lot of books since it includes children's books, a couple of genre-specific deals, and the monthly daily deals as well.
DISCOUNTED / Price Dropped Kindle eBooks II - the ongoing Kindle Forum message thread
There is an ongoing message thread in which Kindle owners share information on recent drops in pricing on specific Kindle books, often with some added info by the person posting it.
Here's a link to the thread, starting at an April 29 posting that includes some books that are still on sale
These tend to be very short-term discounts.
The forum topic link is to a specific day to start, in this case, a book released 4/29, as mentioned, but you can look at previous days or keep up with ongoing alerts after that, as Amazon keeps track of the last message# that you read, so that you can start from there next time. While most of the better deals seem around $1.99-$4.99, there are many larger-publishing house deals included that tend to end in a DAY, so you'd need to double-check the current pricing of ANY Kindle books that interest you to see if the discounts are still active.
I see that Lincoln at Gettysburg: The Words that Remade America (Simon & Schuster Lincoln Library) was heavily discounted for April 29 and is still discounted today, May 2, and I've started the forum topic browse-link at that point.
Again, prices are discounted for only a very short time, too often, and are promos, and that's another reason to watch the list. Most of the large-publisher discounts last only one or two days.
