How Do You Search for Newly Reduced Books for Kindle?

I know a blog or two that list deals, but how do they find them? Is there a way or an app or something to search for newly reduced prices on ebooks? I'd love to know....

Lots of searches and manually looking at them to determine if they are repeats, self-published or public domain, to weed them out.

I don't know of an app to find all the newly reduced titles, but if you have particular books you are waiting to see go down in price you can try Kindle Price Drop Tracker.

Quote:
To begin saving money on your digital purchases, simply fill out the three boxes to the right and click "Submit". That's it. We will check Amazon.com's pricing up to four times daily for each book you enter, and will send you an email if the price ever drops. All books are tracked for 180 days.
They let you specify how much you want the price to drop before they notify you.

You can also look down the page to see what other people are tracking.

http://www.ereaderiq.com/pricewatch/

From this page you can click through to Amazon in a particular price range and/or the particular genre you are interested in. I set the sort on the dropdown box on the Amazon site to Publication Date to find the newest books.

You can also check your Amazon recommendations - I find a lot of things that way.

Thanks! Great resources!

I keep thinking there must be a custom search app that discount blogs/sites are using, but I can't find it...

You can also go to the Kindle section and do a search for -public or -domain and then list them by price so all the free ones show first. Those searches will weed out all the public domain books so only the free promos show.
