Quick Kindle Steals (Vol 1): Books you can buy for $2.99 or less (ft. YARC recommendations!)

Quick Kindle Steals is a little feature I used to do in my old blog, That Bookshelf Bitch. The essence of Quick Kindle steals is pretty simple and straightforward: hunt down any number of discounted (preferably $2.99 or less) or free e-books (either permanently or time-limited prices) and share these finds on my blog. Hopefully, doing this will help introduce struggling readers, such as myself, to more titles that they can afford!

This isn’t a weekly feature, but I lurk around Amazon so frequently that I’ll definitely be doing more volumes of this! I also make Twitter threads about limited-time Kindle deals so be sure to follow me on Twitter and check out the #QuickKindleSteals hashtag. Also, please take note that you need to have the free Kindle app installed in your device before purchasing any of these books.


1. A number of these titles are discounted or free for a limited time only, which means that their prices might change or increase later on. That’s why you have to act quickly and get them, yeah? πŸ˜‰

2. All purchase links contained in this post are Amazon affiliate links! This means that for every discounted Kindle book that you purchase via these links, I will receive a tiny, albeit very helpful, commission at no cost to you! It’s a win-win for both of us. Yay!

3. For your convenience, I’ve made a cute little legend in case you’re looking for something specific:

🌟 Books I’ve read and personally recommend!
🌈 Diverse books (i.e. books either written by an author with a marginalized identity or feature marginalized characters)
🍚 Books written by Asian authors (i.e. books you can read for the Year of the Asian Reading Challenge)

  1. This series is fantastic! I never know where to find all the Kindle deals that are happening, and I get so lost usually with Amazon. This compilation is fantastic, and that legend was perfect! Thank you for putting it together, and can’t wait to see the rest of the volumes! πŸ™‚
