Just thought I’d throw in a note about the Kindle mania that is at least temporarily causing some authors to lower their book prices – and you don’t even have to have a Kindle to save money.
For example, all of Martin Yate’s Knock ‘Em Dead series of career books (on job search, resumes, cover letters, etc.) have now been made available on Kindle, and they’re on sale at Amazon for $1.99 each – but only until December 15 (five more days from now). That’s not a bad price for the books that are normally priced around $10 each for paperbacks.
If you want to download Kindle’s software to read on your PC, try this link. (I actually prefer to read nonfiction on my larger PC screen.)
