The Kindle version of The Curse of the Strawberry Moon is currently on sale for 99 cents.
As part of this Kindle Countdown, the price will gradually rise this week back to the list price of $4.99.
What can you get for less than a buck? According to reviews of this mystery…
“It was truly ‘you cannot put this down until you finish it’ kind of book. I absolutely LOVED it. Cannot wait for the next one.”
“Loved the characters and the setting of the story so much that we took a drive to beautiful Keuka Lake to see it’s beauty for ourselves. Kept me guessing to the very end.”
“This easy-going, well-written novel is a discovery in the way that finding a great local restaurant, seeing a brilliant production by a regional theater company, or hearing an outstanding concert by local musicians are discoveries. I am looking forward to reading the next Caviston sisters mystery.”

The Christian Science Monitor reported yesterday that
Amazon.com CEO Jeff Bezos announced Kindle ebook sales have surpassed traditional paper books. Trees everywhere rejoiced!
“We had high hopes that this would happen eventually, but we never imagined it would happen this quickly – we’ve been selling print books for 15 years and Kindle books for less than four years,” Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos wrote in a press statement. Bezos added that the “Kindle with Special Offers” – a cheaper Kindle edition that displays advertisements – has become Amazon’s most popular e-reader.
The Huffington Post reports today that Amazon intends to drop the price of the Kindle by $25 to $114. But before you click on that order, read the not-so-fine print. The ebook reader will now come with advertising on its screen. (Every day, we’re a step closer to Minority Report, my friends.)
The newly priced Kindle will be sold at this price beginning May 3rd at Amazon, Target and Best Buy. Care for some Oil of Olay as you read Bridget Jones’s Diary?
PC World has a post today about Amazon’s announcement that those readers who subscribe to the Kindle version of The New York Times will be given free access to the newspaper’s website, bypassing its paywall.
Interesting read over at Network World about the evolution of e-paper—the famous readable in all light screen on the Kindle. In the not too distant future we can expect color and video on devices with e-paper screens.
