Here are some interesting deals for your Kindle.
B&N started its own version of Kindle Daily Deal. Obviously, Amazon is matching the offers.
Black Hawk Down by Mark Bowden. Price: $2.99. Genre: Military Writing, Africa, War, 21st Century. Rated 4.5 stars on 700 reviews. 400 pages.
This is military writing at its breathless best. Bowden (Bringing the Heat) has used his journalistic skills to find and interview key participants on both sides of the October 1993 raid into the heart of Mogadishu, Somalia, a raid that quickly became the most intensive close combat Americans have engaged in since the Vietnam War.
* Journalist Mark Bowden delivers a strikingly detailed account of the 1993 nightmare operation in Mogadishu that left 18 American soldiers dead and many more wounded.
The Columbus Trilogy: The Silver Bear, Columbus, and Dark Men by Derek Haas. Price: $2.99. Genre: Suspense Novels. The Author was nominated for the Barry Award and is the co-screenwriter of Wanted and 3:10 to Yuma. The individual books are all rated 4.5 stars or 5 stars and if bought individually would be $24.28.

Now that Amazon will be offering a Kindle Daily Deal and also matching B&N’s daily deal – we’ll have two very good book deals to look forward to. And I’d pick Black Hawk Down over most of Amazon’s honorary slots for Encore books and Small Publisher Books any day.
