You can also go to the Amazon Movers and Shakers List. There are lots of books at $2.99 that are moving up the charts. Think they are all part of Amazon’s 100 Books under $3.99 Deals promotion. The Movers and Shakers Chart is a good way to see which of these are popular.

  1. Looks like Amazon has finally gotten the message that the kindle books they sell are often written by people who don’t know how to write.
    They have responded with: Amazon University’s School of Creative Writing.**

    What’s next? Amazon University’s School of Creative Selling with courses like: Learn how to get people to pay for things that are supposed to be free in five easy lessons.

    **All of the books on writing were published by Writer’s Digest, a reputable publisher.

  2. I often see people referring to the “99 cent list.” I’ve never been able to find a list by that name. How do you get to it?

    • The 99 cent list?

      There are a few lists -

      Discounted Books thread at Amazon Kindle forum. Run by Kindle owners.
      Amazon’s sales. Sometimes it’s a 99 cent books sale. Usually it’s books at $2.99 and $3.99. IT’s 100 at a time and happens almost every month.

      • Type in 99 cent search and it will list popular 99 centers. I’ve found that before.

      • I thought from the way some people have talked about it that there might be an actual list with that name. Guess I’ll have to keep using the search box.
