Maybe the roulette wheel idea is correct. If so, the wheel apparently doesn't have "non-fiction" as one of the categories, nor any specific kind of non-fiction as one of its categories.

Or possibly the wheel is rigged--"non-fiction" and some of its subcategories do show on the wheel, but the wheel is rigged, to where the wheel will never land on any of those categories. People can do that, you know. I would call for an investigation, and a special counsel, and the whole nine yards, to look into it, but I don't see any point to it now--the program is going to bite the dust in a few days anyway.

I tell you, the brains of Americans are slowly turning into mush, what with them reading and listening to this fiction stuff. Turning to mush . . . .

FYI, that notice was not visible on October 1, at the time I posted this month's deals. After reading your posts this evening, I searched, unsuccessfully, for news about this development. Has anyone received an email on the subject?
I got an email (two days ago) and just noticed it today.

We wanted to let you know that October is the last month you will be able to redeem one free book via Samsung Book Deals. As of November 1, 2018, Samsung Book Deals will no longer be available. Thank you for participating – any books you have previously redeemed are yours to keep, and will continue to appear in your library after the program ends.

As a Prime member, you get early access to Editors' Picks and can choose one free Kindle book each month with Amazon First Reads.

Thank you, gabby98.

After reading your post, I searched my email for the phrase, "October is the last month". Turns out, store-news@amazon.com also emailed me that message, dated October 10, 2018 @ 10:29 PM.

Like multiple Samsung offerings that have come and gone since I became a Samsung smartphone owner, the Kindle For Samsung Book Deals program was nice while it lasted.

I also received the email on the 10th. Sad to see it go - but at least we still have the first reads thing!
