I am going to try posting about the Kindle Daily Deal a little bit different in an effort to decrease the number of posts people receive via email each day – let me know what you think about it in the comment field below this post on either the blog’s web page or Facebook page.
The Kindle Daily Deal is a one-day only offer where a specific Kindle book for adults and one for kids (children or young adults) has been hand-selected by the editors at Amazon and significantly discounted for today only.
Today’s Kindle Daily Deal for adults is Old Town by Lin Zhe and George A. Fowler, and this book was $4.99 yesterday in the Amazon Kindle Store but has been discounted 60% to just $1.99 for today only. This book has received an average user rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars based on 42 customer reviews.
Today’s Kindle Daily Deal for kids is Goodnight, Little Monster by S.G. Redling, and this book was $9.99 yesterday in the Amazon Kindle Store but has been discounted 80% to just $1.99 for today only. This book has received an average user rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars based on 156 customer reviews.
Here is the Old Town book description from the Amazon website:
Lin Zhe, one of China’s most prolific writers, paints an unforgettable picture of an ordinary family caught up in the maelstrom that was China’s most recent century. Her narrative ranges across the entire length of China, to California and back again, to the battlefields of the Anti-Japanese War of Resistance and the brutal “struggle” sessions of the Cultural Revolution. But it always returns to this family’s home in Old Town, that archetypical, old-fashioned, and vanishing place steeped in the traditions of South China. Ms. Lin examines the inner strength that sustains people’s lives in their darkest hours, when religious and political faith falter. And yet, a vein of irony and droll humor runs through this powerful story. Lin Zhe’s novel may be understood as a love story, memoir, history, or allegory. For the non-Chinese reader it provides a rare and moving insight into Chinese lives in a century of fearsome upheaval. This book was originally published under the title Riddles of Belief…and Love – A Story.
Here is the Goodnight, Little Monster book description from the Amazon website:
Little Monster needs to get ready for bed. That means howling at the moon, scrubbing his scales, getting into his creepy PJs, and enjoying a nice snack before bed: worm juice and baked beetle bread. And, of course, Little Monster’s mother is nearby to tuck Little Monster into bed and turn on his night-light—because even little monsters can be afraid of the dark. Bonnie Leick’s soft, child-friendly illustrations rendered in watercolor bring a new and quiet twist to the evening’s bedtime ritual. Sweet dreams, Little Monster!
