List of Amazon titles for Kindle that are great deals?

I've tried searching and haven't found anything, so I was wondering if anyone has or knows of a list of great deals on Amazon Kindle titles?

Some examples I've found would be the Princess Bride for < $2 on the Kindle, where the mmp is $8. The 40th anniversary edition of Dune was < $2 for the Kindle, but it seems to have disappeared. Winston Churchill's first two books of his World War II series were < $3 each. There are several Sci-Fi titles that are great deals, like "I, Robot", and "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?". Then I found King's "The Shining' for $2.50.

So anyways, does anyone else know of any books that are great deals on the Kindle? (public domain stuff excluded, please

Thanks.

I don't know but you can list all the ebooks in the Kindle store by price from lowest to highest.

Unfortunately it only returns the first 1000 entries which ends well short of $1/ebook, with most of the books being not what I'm interested in. It'd be great if I could find an advanced search that returns Kindle titles between price $x and $y and lists them in the order of popularity.

However, I don't think that 25 cents for a poorly written porno book is a good deal.

And this one I just can't figure out:

"Free" -- price $0.01 -- hardly free.

Hi, don't know your taste in books, but, I have put all mine on Kindle for .99, the lowest price they allow. On The Road To Dharamsala is probably the best (poems written in Maine, Hawaii, and India). The novels aren't bad. Take a look and let me know if you like them. John

You might try putting your favorite authors name in the search box........and keep doing that to see what good deals are out there.

I can't think of any other way except if people post on here, as they are wont to do....

This is a frustration I have with the Kindle Store. I would like a lot more wide ranging search tools.FictionWise is a lot better, but far from perfect. It would really be nice to have a price range search, as mentioned above.

Not that I am suffering from any lack of books to read, since I have 38 pages of them already.

One whole page is the H. Rider Haggard Omnibi (Thanks Harry!) Another two pages is the Discworld and a page and a half is the Pern series. there are other series in there, too, but those are the biggest ones.

I got you all beat... I have 1 page of books on my Kindle to read. I won't get another book to read until there is room. This keeps it from being overwhelming. Of course, my "to read" list is already overwhelming.
