Here’s a short and rambling post about…well, not much at all. I’ve had just a few things I wanted to relay to each of you over the past week, so I thought I would just put them together in one post here.
Amazon’s Black Friday Deals
I’ve been putting a link at the bottom of most of the posts over the past week to Amazon’s Black Friday Deals: they’ve really been cranking out the specials, and I’ve picked up a few things for the kitchen and the house at significantly discounted prices than what I’ve seen at Bed Bath and Beyond and other places (yes, as a guy I do shop there from time to time but don’t tell too many people!).
I received a note from a contact at Amazon saying that this Friday – bright and early – they will be pulling out all of the stops. Yes, I will send you a reminder because if you’re like me you’ll not only pick up some things for yourself but it’s how I’ve done quite a bit of my Christmas shopping over the past two years, also.
You can check them out right now if you click here or type in http://smarturl.it/amazonbfriday into your web browser. Maybe you can grab that big screen TV I saw this morning for $199 or what looked like a Herman Miller chair for $119!
Kindle Daily Deals and Free App of the Day
Several people have emailed me asking why I’m only posting the Kindle Daily Deal or the Free App of the Day on a periodic basis. The short answer is there have been more than the traditional one special per genre, and it would take too much time to set the post up before I head out to work each day. For those of you who don’t know, I am not a full-time blogger but an accountant (let the bean counter jokes start now!).
You don’t have to wait on me telling you about the deals – you can check them out each day if you just bookmark these links:
Kindle Daily Deal – http://smarturl.it/dailydeal
Free App of the Day – http://smarturl.it/appdeal
Each of these deals change daily, and there are quite a few jewels and one or two stinkers offered each day.
Win an Amazon Gift Card
A group of independent authors I have come to know via the blog have banded together to offer what they have called a “Love, Murder, and Everything Else” special featuring their books at just 99 cents each, and they are also giving away Amazon gift cards in $100, $50, and $25 denominations. Looking at the titles, I’ve read some of them and they are quite good, and you’ll certainly receive more than 99 cents worth of entertainment value out of them.
Why not check out the website, and enter to win one of the gift cards (hey – it costs nothing to enter, so what do you have to lose?).
You can check out the books on the main page, and to enter the gift card giveaway just scroll to the lower right-hand side of the page and click on the “Giveaways & Extras” header.
The Blog’s Social Media Sites
This must be social media week – quite a few of you have asked where the blog’s Facebook, Twitter, etc. pages are located. There seems to be an explosion of social media sites lately, and I haven’t signed up for all of them as there is not enough time in the day and I question how long most of these will be around. However, you can check the blog’s three social media sites out at:
Of course, you can give the pages a like or follow to your heart’s content!
That’s all I had for today – I hope each of you have a great Thanksgiving!
