Perfect by Natasha Friend is reduced to $0.94 (US Kindle)

Quote:
Product Description

Following the death of her father, a 13 year old uses bulimia as a way to avoid her mother's and ten-year-old sister's grief, as well as her own.

Isabelle Lee has a problem, and it's not just Ape Face, her sister, or group therapy for an eating disorder, or even that her father died and her mother is depressed and in denial. It's that Ashley, the most popular girl in school, is inviting Isabelle to join her at lunch and at sleepovers at her house, and this is presenting Isabelle with a dilemma. Pretty Ashley has moved Isabelle up the social ladder, but is it worth keeping the secret they share?

Caught in the orbit of popularity and appearances, Isabelle must navigate a world with mixed messages, false hopes, and potentially harmful turns, while coping with her own flailing family and emotions. The author brings a depth of characterization, humor, and a real adolescent's voice to this multileveled story about the desire to be perfect in an imperfect world.

Murder in Clichy (Aimee Leduc Investigations, No. 5) by Cara Black is reduced to $0.96 (US Kindle)

Quote:
Product Description
Aimée Leduc, private investigator specializing in computer security, has been introduced to the Cao Dai temple in Paris by her partner René Friant. He urges her to learn to meditate: she could use a more healthful approach to life. The Vietnamese nun Linh has been helping Aimée to attain her goal, so when she asks Aimée for a favor—to go to the Clichy quartier to exchange an envelope for a package—René prompts Aimée to agree. But the intended recipient, Thadée Baret, is shot and dies in Aimée’s arms before the transaction can be completed, leaving Aimée with a wounded arm, a check for 50,000 francs, and a trove of ancient jade artifacts.

Whoever killed Baret wants the jade. The RG—the French secret service; a group of veterans of the war in Indochina and some wealthy ex-colonials and international corporations seeking oil rights are all implicated. And the nun, Linh, has disappeared.

Since the incident in which she was temporarily blinded (Murder in the Bastille), Aimée has promised to avoid danger. But somehow, it continues to seek her out.

The Gathering by Anne Enright is reduced to $0.84 (US Kindle)

Quote:
Product Description
In the taut latest from Enright (What Are You Like?), middle-aged Veronica Hegarty, the middle child in an Irish-Catholic family of nine, traces the aftermath of a tragedy that has claimed the life of rebellious elder brother Liam. As Veronica travels to London to bring Liam's body back to Dublin, her deep-seated resentment toward her overly passive mother and her dissatisfaction with her husband and children come to the fore. Tempers flare as the family assembles for Liam's wake, and a secret Veronica has concealed since childhood comes to light. Enright skillfully avoids sentimentality as she explores Veronica's past and her complicated relationship with Liam. She also bracingly imagines the life of Veronica's strong-willed grandmother, Ada. A melancholic love and rage bubbles just beneath the surface of this Dublin clan, and Enright explores it unflinchingly.

Allison's Journey by Wanda E. Brunstetter is reduced to $0.90 (US Kindle)

Quote:
Product Description

Two Tattered Hearts Seek Faith and Love

Allison Troyer is of marriageable age and needs to learn how to manage an Amish household. Can a girl who feels as faceless, purposeless, and neglected as her tattered Amish doll, find her way among strangers?

James Esh likes what he sees when Allison Troyer walks into the barn. Will anything keep this brash young Amish man from stealing her affections?

Aaron Zook has vowed never to lose his heart to another. Yet when James makes advances on Allison, Aaron can’t help but intercede.

Can threads of faith and love unite tattered hearts?

The Kids are Alright: How the Gamer Generation is Changing the Workplace by John C. Beck and Mitchell Wade is reduced to $0.93 (US Kindle)

Quote:
Product Description
Think video games are kids' stuff? Think again. According to authors John C. Beck and Mitchell Wade all those hours immersed in game culture have created masses of employees with unique attributes. This new generation that's ninety-million strong has an amazing ability to multitask, solves problems creatively, and brings unexpected leadership to the table. But to tap these skills, we need to understand and appreciate the different ways gamers think and behave. "The Kids Are Alright" dispels common myths about gamers and reveals them as committed, team-oriented people who play to win.

Thanks for the link as well as taking the trouble to identify such a wide range of titles. I picked up the Dalai Lama book, The Open Road for 44¢ (!).

Rats, the Raquel Welch autobiography is back to full price.

Do you have any searches like this for Barnes & Noble, Arcadata?

Sorry, no. I usually just check if B&N price matched or not.

P.S. Here's another Kindle bargain:

No Opportunity Wasted: Creating a Life List by Phil Keoghan (Author), Warren Berger is reduced to $0.05

Quote:
Product Description
In dramatic narrative form, Phil Keoghan transports the reader from the Yucatan Jungle to the depths of an underwater cave to the top of an erupting volcano. But this is no armchair traveler book. It is an urgent call to action, inspiring and enabling people to overcome fear and seek out memorable experiences of their own. With his fresh and compelling N.O.W. philosophy, this is a book that will help us all dream more freely and live more fully.

The Wikipedia Revolution: How a Bunch of Nobodies Created the World's Greatest Encyclopedia is also 7 cents over @ B&N.

None of the others that I was interested in dropped at either B&N or Kobo.

ETA: Also, for the Cara Black Murder in Clichy mystery, you have a choice of equally-priced dreaded Topaz format, or Mobi with annoying tiny font (at the "3" Aa size, no less) and paragraph spacing issues. Sample first before shelling out.

ETA 2: Amazon's edition of the Wikipedia Revolution has footnote numbers throughout the text which are not linked to the references, and an improperly attached or completely missing NCX-TOC which results in no flickable chapter marks. Up to you if it's worth the 7 cents.

Bizarre range of pricing... I wonder if it is a glitch or if there is some method to the madness.
