Kindle Tips: June's Monthly 100 Kindle Books for $3.99 or less - Editors' Choices + Free non-classics by publication date + discounted-book alerts. Strangers on a Train: Farley Granger at age 80 in 2006.

JUNE 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 June 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 June 2013.

FREE KINDLE BOOKS (Non-classics) for June (and May)
I've updated the "Temporarily-free books -- Non-classics" search results to show free contemporary Kindle books for JUNE, sorted by publication-date, as of June 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.  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 (May).

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
  This 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 a May 29 posting that includes some books that are still on sale June 1.
    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 5/29, 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 saw that Strangers on a Train by Patricia Highsmith was noted for a usually-temporary price drop for May 29 and is still discounted today, June 1, so I've started the forum topic browse-link at that point.

  The image here is of Farley Granger at age 80 when interviewed on stage at the Noir City Film Festival in Jan. 2006 and I took it from from the audience w/o flash.  I've also added a very shaky 14-second videoclip done right after that, as he answers a question about Director Nicholas Ray - I was surprised he still had a remarkably young voice for his age.
  Kindle Editions of the blog can't show video, so if nostalgically curious about this, it can be seen on a desktop, tablet, or smart phone but it's not worth the trouble.  Pure nostalgia, poorly shot.

  Again, Kindle book 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.

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.
