Welcome to Daily Cheap Reads, where our mission is to provide you with plenty of cheap reading options for your Kindle or e-book reader. With a focus on quality books – or at least cheap books – we do not accept advertising to provide you with an enjoyable, easy to navigate online experience.
Some tips to help you make the most of Daily Cheap Reads:
–New books are posted at 6:30 daily. The Amazon Daily Deals – a book of varying genre, a sci-fi/fantasy book, a romance novel, a non-fiction book, a children or teen book, the free Android app and the Audible deal of the day – are always posted at the top with new posts following.
–We do not set book prices. Those are entirely at the discretion of Amazon or the publishers and authors. Prices can change quickly and often. If you see a book you want at a price you like, our recommendation is to buy it. If you don’t see a book you like, come back later and look around again.
–NOTE: DUE TO AMAZON’S RECENT (MARCH 1, 2013) POLICY CHANGE REGARDING FREE BOOKS, WE WILL POST A LIMITED NUMBER OF FREE BOOKS. IF AMAZON CHANGES THE POLICY, WE WILL RECONSIDER. Free books are posted as they become available. These are determined by the publishers and most are available for a limited time – some only for a few hours. In other cases, a book may be free for a month or more. Some books are only available in certain geographic areas, so readers outside of the United States may not be offered the book for free. Always, always, always double-check to make sure a book is free before ordering.–If Amazon is offering a price match to Barnes & Noble Daily Find, we will feature the offering each day, as well. The price match is usually good only the day of the post.
–Books that are less than $2 are called SuperCheap. We feature SuperCheap books every day in the 5:45 a.m. Central US time post.
–We want our website to be family-friendly. Therefore, we do not post books we deem inappropriate.
We showcase a variety of fiction and non-fiction books, as well as short stories and book bundles. On Sundays, we focus on Christian fiction, religious and inspirational offerings. The exception is free books. Many faith-based publishers offer free books and these are posted throughout the week as they come available. (Hint: Look for free books at the beginning of the month and on Mondays.)
We routinely share book reviews. Sometimes these books will be over our $5 cheap threshold because the price fluctuates, but we also make a point to let you know when these books drop in price. Amazon news, publishing updates and other news is posted on Thursdays in the Housekeeping column.

Recent changes by Amazon that jeopardize our commissions based on the number of free downloads attributed to us means that we will not post indie-published free books.
