Amazon Kindle Book Deals [My Favorites]

Amazon Kindle Book Deals

I mentioned Amazon Kindle book deals in a previous post. I’m a huge bargain ebook shopper and it is one of the main reasons I got into digital books. There are probably a million and one ebook deal pages and newsletters out there that are entirely legit. No piracy!

Note to readers: never ever download ‘free’ books from random places on the internet.  Make absolutely positive they take you to legitimate retailers or places that offer ebooks from authors and publishers for reviews. 

Piracy hurts your authors and if they can’t make enough money writing, they will stop writing those stories you all love.  If you can’t afford them, use a library.  Don’t steal! Pirated ebooks are not only illegal and unethical, but also a great way to get a virus. So steer clear of free download sites.

Instead, shop the virtual discount bin at your favorite retailer. Or join a few of my favorite newsletters or book services.

I subscribe to each of the newsletters I mention below and enjoy each one!

Amazon’s Kindle Daily Deals

Amazon itself has a fun page that you can browse their Kindle Daily Deals. Never want to miss one? Subscribe to their email updates.

It’s a selection of about a dozen books on sale for usually between $0.99 and $2.99, including bestselling novels by popular authors. You can see other types of Amazon sponsored sales as well, like the Kindle Exclusive Deals. That’s deals on books only found at Amazon.

They also have Kindle Monthly Deals and Countdown Deals. Definitely check it out if you’re a Kindle user. I have bought books off that page too many times. It’s hard to resist a good book deal.



A popular site with a daily newsletter that informs you of ebook deals from all major retailers. You can subscribe and indicate your favorite genres and retailers or even follow your favorite authors. They will email you if the author you’re following has a new deal, new release or new preorder available. You can choose a daily newsletter or weekly. Pretty easy to navigate as well.

It is perhaps my favorite newsletter. You can even rate and review books, follow people, it’s like a mini social media site. If you want to buy up particular authors when they are running a sale, you definitely need to sign up.

Check out Bookbub today!


BookGorilla offers a daily newsletter of Kindle book deals. It is based on your genre preferences and how many books you want in the email (12, 25 or 50!). Like Bookbub, you can also follow favorite authors.

This is another huge favorite of mine, in case you’re interested. I love being able to follow my favorite authors. Plus the layout is easy to navigate and your genre choices are quite vast.

The only disadvantage of this newsletter is it’s Amazon only.  So if you prefer reading on a Kobo device, you’d have to download the free Kindle app on your phone or tablet to take advantage of these deals.

Check out BookGorilla.

Freebooksy and Bargain Booksy

Freebooksy and Bargain Booksy are two newsletters that are run by the same service. I like both as it’s a great way to discover new authors. You can choose your genres and preferred retailers.

The only reason why I don’t like these two newsletters as much as the first two I listed is the majority of the offers seem to be lesser known self-published authors. There is definitely nothing wrong with that, which is why it’s a great service to discover new authors for free or discounted prices.

However, I like newsletters to include all authors that I might be interested in.  This includes traditionally published mega-sellers and independent authors alike. So this one will fall short if you’re only interested in bestselling authors.

Sign up at Freebooksy and Bargain Booksy.

The Fussy Librarian

The Fussy Librarian has two newsletters now. One for freebies and one for bargain books. Just like previous newsletters I’ve mentioned, you can choose your genres and retailers.

You can even choose to have the freebies newsletter once a week or every day. Pretty awesome. The layout is pretty easy to navigate and looks appealing as well.

This one also falls short in that it tends to list independent authors who self-publish more than bestselling authors with a publisher.

Subscribe to The Fussy Librarian.


EreaderIQ is another amazing Kindle ebook deal website and newsletter that lets you follow authors or even track specific books you want. Free or discounted books are tailored to your genre preferences. It’s an excellent resource if you like waiting to purchase ebooks until they’re running a huge deal.

Site navigation is pretty simple and aesthetic. It might become a favorite of mine in the future. I’ve been receiving the newsletter for a couple of years now, I think, but only recently discovered the website’s features. You definitely don’t want to miss out on those like I did!

Subscribe to EreaderIQ.

You Want More?

Kindle Quote

There are so many more than the few I listed here, so your choices are endless. There are deal newsletters for specific genres or themes or publishers often share sales in their own newsletters.

Sign up for as many (or as few) as you want or can handle. I guarantee you won’t regret it. Except maybe if you spend all your time in your inbox checking your email.

With thousands of books going on sale or authors giving away the first book in a series, the only reason to ever pay full price is a lack of patience for new releases. Reading a series? Borrow it from your library or Kindle Unlimited or other places until the right ebook sale comes along!

Did I miss your favorite freebie or deal newsletter? Leave a comment below, as I would love to try any out! I am a deal junkie.

  1. This is great! I have been getting all of my kindle books through BookBub, but had no idea there were so many other sources. Thank you for sharing!

  2. Great post thank you! One question I always wonder is if people like e-books or paperbacks more. E-books are great because you can keep all of them in a single location and they are easily transported and found wherever you go. Honesly I had not heard of Kindle Daily Deals so linking to them is very helpful. You provided some very solid references to e-Book providers, most of which I hadn’t heard of. Thank you for sharing!

    1. Thanks for visiting!

      There are still die-hard paper book lovers who look down on the whole digital books thing. There are avid ebook fans. There are those that love both. Some now only buy paper books of their favorites. I used to swear by paper books and refused to read ebooks. Until life forced it and then I realized that I was really silly by refusing before. The only downside is that you don’t necessarily ‘own’ them like you do a paperback. But you get access to more authors than any bookstore and more sales (and freebies!) than you’d ever find in the real physical world. Plus portability, instant access, and you save some trees!

  3. Oh Lord, so many options to choose from :D. This is so amazing for all the bookworms among us! It’s always nice to have a look at books that are on sale. Mostly you find only some older and not so known books on those websites. What about these? Is there also some recent stuff?

    1. Oh yes, some recent releases are often on sale! The newsletters just inform you when it happens. It’s a huge marketing ploy by authors to attract readers by offering an ebook sale or freebie. I’ve seen pre-order sales for free or discounted. It’s awesome!

  4. I did not know that there were programs out there that gave you the best deals on ebooks and the like. I had always thought you either get a subscription like on amazon or the price you pay is the price you pay. BookGorilla looks good. Which of these deal websites do you think is your favorite and why?

    1. Excellent question!

      Bookbub and BookGorilla, with EreaderIQ following. All three allow you to follow authors or specific books or both. The only reason EreaderIQ is 3rd is that the daily newsletter itself doesn’t have many books I’m ever interested in, BUT it emails me book price changes each morning if there are any! So I can keep track of my favorite authors and snap up good deals. 🙂

      Thanks for visiting!

  5. Wow, thank you so much for this seemingly endless supply of amazing deals for those of us who are bookworms! I have to admit that I am kinda new to E-books. It’s taken a couple of years for me to go kicking and screaming from actual heavy hard back books that smell like old parchment to E-books. 

    But I’ve tried it and it’s definitely a great alternative, given the good deals you can get. However, I was not aware of all the fabulous deals that you have alerted us to. Thank you Selenity Jade! I read your “About Selenity” page and besides having an obsession with reading in common, I’m a major animal lover too and have worked with cat/kitten rescue and adoption agencies. I’ll be keeping a close eye on your site. Thanks again.


    1. Aw! Thank you!

      I myself was dragged kicking and screaming into digital books myself, so I feel you there! But I rarely read paper anymore. I only buy paper books of favorite books now. They’re just there to look pretty. 🙂

      Thanks for visiting!

    First off, funny story, my oldest daughter is a huge reader!  We went on vacation one summer and she had a suitcase full of books!  It was extremely heavy!  Ebook books have made her life and my life easier and lighter!  I love to download books on my kindle and have so many right at my finger tips.  I had never heard of anything you mentioned other than amazon kindle books.  It’s great that you follow authors, I follow genres.  What I like is that each of those companies has something different to offer, self-published, popular, etc. You seem very passionate about your reading!

    1. Hi, Tammy!

      Ebooks have DEFINITELY made things easier for readers going on vacation!  HAHAHA! That was totally me as a kid, trying to carry seven books with me for a weekend at the lake.  LOL

      Thanks for visiting!


    Great article.

    Your post actually took me back in the days when I was so much fun of romance novels. Whatever happened to those passions? Perhaps school and work got in the way.

    I had to buy hard copies and even rented some. But today everything has changed. Thank you for sharing all these great online resources. I didn’t even know most of them existed.

    In fact, the one I was most familiar with was Amazon Kindle. The rest are completely new. Great and informative post. I actually discovered a lot of new resources today.

    I will bookmark it and come back to it later.

    I had a Kindle a couple of years ago, was into the more “old school” method of good old fashioned page turning. But as my reading picks up, I found myself downloading the reader. I did not know that all these places existed to get books online, especially free ones. I will definitely look into all of these. Glad I found your site, sir!

    I am a Social Studies teacher (World History, U.S. History, American Government and Economics) in an alternative high school. I am also an avid reader. I like how you explained the Amazon Kindle book deals and daily deals. I clicked on Book Bub and checked off the types of books and authors. When I was done I was pleasantly surprised to see that some of the books listed were free. What a bonus! You also did a great job of explaining Book Gorilla, Freebooksy and Bargain Booksy, the Fussy Librarian and Ereader IQ. Due to your obvious enthusiasm, I clicked on each site and was again pleased to find opportunities to get free books.

    This topic is timely for me. I truly appreciate being reminded that there are many great sources for reading material on the internet and being guided to specific sites that will prove to be highly, valued.

    Thanks for the great information.

    God bless you!
