Price-Reducing Pre-orders

Hey guys! Anyone here get kindle books off of Amazon?

I’m a huge fan because of the ease and convenience of it. A couple of years ago I swore I would never be one of those ebook people who forsook paperbacks, but I’ve made the conversion. It is just so nice to be able to order a book and have it instantly sent to your device, to always have a bookshelf worth of books when you get caught at an appointment or what-have-you, and to not need so much space in your house devoted to books.

I actually just donated two shopping bags of books to my local library and as soon as I can save up enough money to repurchase all my old favorites in ebook format, I’ll be donating those books as well. During university and just afterwards, I moved 11 times in 5 or 6 years and am looking at another one in the next six months or so. So if I have 10 fewer boxes to move, I’m okay with that.

But far and beyond the best thing about switching to ebooks is the pricing. Most of the time, I am reading books that are written by one of my top ten authors, often series. So I have the opportunity to pre-order these books months ahead of time, as soon as they are announced. Amazon has this policy that if the cost of an item goes down at any point while you have it pre-ordered, you will be charged the lowest price it was ever listed for. And there are sales on these books surprisingly often. Here is a quick peak at what I have pre-ordered right now, what each is currently listed at and what I am paying for it (unless of course, the price drops before release day, since some haven’t got a sale yet).

Quite a few deals, eh? There are only a couple I’m paying full price for, and they don’t come out for a bit, so I hope to get a sale price before then for each. For those 8 books, I have already saved $15.65 in total from the kindle prices. That’s roughly the cost of two books!
