Kindle tips: The Big Deal - Over 400 Kindle books at up to 85% off is back, through March 29. Amazon's ongoing SD card discounts. UPDATE. LINK fixed.

The Big Deal: Kindle Books Up to 85% Off

Starting March 13, 2015 through March 29, 2015, save up to 85% on more than 400 Kindle books.
Amazon's The Big Deal is back for the most of the rest of March (starting today, March 13) and promises, this time,
  "Up to 85% off on more than 400 Kindle Books" in that small print.

This special pricing is good through March 29, and carries the usual disclaimer re varying selection and pricing of books offered outside the U.S.
  [UPDATE: Somewhere I saw March 31 as the end date but it's through March 29 instead.
    I've also fixed the first link, which was to the wrong page.  Gads.  Apologies.]

   Last year in March, this feature's page was organized using a more limited set of 5 categories or genres.  This year, there are nine categories:

  Mystery and Thrillers,  Romance,  Science Fiction & Fantasy, Contemporary Fiction
  Biography & Memoirs, Teen Books, Children's Books, Literature & Fiction,
  Religion & Spirituality

On the right of the page is a list of the Top 10 Best Sellers and an option to "See all Best Sellers in The Big Deal"
  Those latter list shows the top 100 out of the 400 offered.
' These lists, updated hourly, contain bestselling items. Here you can discover the best The Big Deal in Amazon Best Sellers ... For non-U.S. customers, Kindle content availability and pricing will vary. '
The bottom of the page is a scrolling list of 431 books, one by one, with a default sort of "New and Popular" and alternate sorts:
  16 per page, if you choose (inside the gray strip bar above the list) the Orange grid for "Detail"
  60 per page, if you choose the 4-cell icon for "Image" which will show mainly book covers and basic info.

  Shortcut if you type it:

Side Note:
For photo buffs and snapshooters:
 Last year, the following link was to special pricing, but the page now seems to be Amazon's ongoing, mostly 50% off pricing on SD and SDHC memory cards.
  These are primarily name brand memory cards.

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.
