Oct's 100 Kindle Books for $3.99 or less - Editors' Choices + Free non-classics by publication date + discounted-book alerts

"OCTOBER 2012's 100 Kindle Books deal, for $3.99 or less"

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.

  These Kindle books are $1.99 to $3.99 and are "hand-selected" by Amazon's Editors each month.

  What you'll see on that special monthly-deals page are the new ones for October 2012.

FREE KINDLE BOOKS (Non-classics) for October (and September)
In the meantime, I've updated the "Temporarily-free books -- Non-classics" search results for free contemporary Kindle books for OCTOBER, sorted by publication-date, as of today, 10/1, but Amazon hasn't really populated that list yet and so there are only a few shown on the first day.   These include pre-orders for October, of course, since the month has just started.

  Here are the current Search results for free Kindle non-classics, by publication date for September, but be warned as I saw that some books at the top, put there Sept. 30, are not exactly family fare.

Today's Kindle Daily Deal, for October 1, Monday only, is Pour Your Heart Into It, by Howard Schultz.  Amazon's description:
  "The success of Starbucks Coffee Company is one of the most amazing business stories in decades.  What started as a single store on Seattle’s waterfront has grown into a company with over 1,600 stores. J ust as remarkable is how Starbucks has maintained its commitment to product excellence and employee satisfaction."
  It has 165 customer reviews and the average rating is 4.4 stars.
  It's $1.99 for today (Monday) only. 88% off
  Their Kindle Young Readers Daily Deal is headlined, "Two Empowering Books for Girls", and are to help with handling "sticky situations" and "bullying."  They're both "80% off."

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 from a few days ago with books still on sale Oct 1.

  The link I gave is to a specific day to start, in this case, 9/27, mid-point, 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.

  Prices are discounted often for only a very short time and are promos, and that's another reason to watch the list.

Current Kindle Models for reference, plus free-ebook search links.

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.
