Good morning, wherever in this world you might be. Here in the Midwestern United States, I’m enjoying a sunny Saturday morning and spending a bit of time looking for cheap reads so we can offer you a wide variety of e-books at great prices.

The last few weeks have been interesting at Amazon from a pricing perspective. Several days this past week I have had great e-books prepared to post the next day for you, but when I confirmed prices at 5:45 the morning of the posts, the great prices were gone. I was disappointed that I didn’t post those books earlier so you could have gotten the price. Then, boom, next day, back to the great price! I’ve gotten whiplash trying to follow the pricing back and forth, up and down.

Case in point: July 19 we featured Home for the Holidays by Debbie Macomber. The price was $1.30 and many of you bought it at that great price. On July 26, another book by Ms. Macomber came up for $1.34, so we featured that book and reminded you that Home for the Holidays was still priced at $1.30. On July 27, I had to post a pricing update as Home for the Holidays had increased to $5.76. It’s Saturday morning, July 31, and guess what is selling for $1.30 again? Yes, Home for the Holidays! If you haven’t bought it yet, you might want to do so now!

Changing upward prices are frustrating for all of us. I would encourage you to check this website often, shrug your shoulders if you miss a good price, then come back to check the e-book price in a few days to see if the price has changed downward.
