The last couple weeks have been a little crazy, so I apologize for the lack of new episodes and posts. I don’t have much time today, but I did want to clue you into something awesome I just discovered.
Earlier this week I picked up a copy of Dan Crenshaw’s new book “Fortitude” on Kindle (I read Kindle books through the iPhone app) and noticed that it was labeled “Great on Kindle” and came with a $11.24 credit. I bought the book for $15 and immediately got an email with the credit which Amazon told me I had a month to use.
Today I clicked on the link in the email and it took me to the “Great on Kindle” bookstore which was filled with thousands of really good, best-selling books. To my delight I found Ryan Holiday’s newest book “Stillness is the Key” and used my credit to buy it for $1.75. Pretty sweet I thought, but then the strangest thing happened.
I got another email with another credit. This time for $9.74.
Elated, I jumped over and bought a book I’ve been trying to get at the library for ages “Small Giants” by Bo Burlingham for $4.75 AND IT CAME WITH A $10.49 CREDIT. So then I went and bought “Atomic Habits” by James Clear* for $4.75 AND IT CAME WITH AN $11.49 CREDIT!
I’ve stopped buying books for now, but it looks like I could continue this cycle until I’ve bought every book in the “Great on Kindle” bookstore or until I don’t buy anything for a month and let the credit expire.
I’m usually unimpressed with books that are offered at a discount, but the “Great on Kindle” bookstore is packed with high-quality, best-selling books, many of which I’ve been wanting to read for ages.
The links in this article are affiliate links, but other than the pennies I make if you buy a book through a link, Amazon isn’t paying me to write this. I’m just so impressed with the program I had to share.
*Fun Fact – Back before James Clear was one of the best selling authors on Amazon, he used to write a blog. On a whim, I reached out to him for some advice and he personally replied to my email. He’s a cool guy and I’m happy he’s so successful.
