Another miniscule drop on Ask Alice: A Novel - now down to $2.18.

I think if it drops below $2 I will buy. I'm still only marginally interested in the book, but the entertainment of watching it slowly float down deserves some reward!

I like the Judge Dee series but that price is still too high for me. It's also annoying that many of the earliest series books aren't yet available for Kindle. Fortunately the books are pretty much stand-alone but I would still prefer to read them in order.

The Kings' Mistresses: The Liberated Lives of Marie Mancini, Princess Colonna, and Her Sister Hortense, Duchess Mazarin by Elizabeth Goldsmith Now $12.99 Was $14.84

For whatever reason, I am always surprised when one of the more expensive books on my WL drops in price. Hopefully, it will drop some more.

A Short History of England: The Glorious Story of a Rowdy Nation
By Simon Jenkins

Currently: $8.31
Start Price: $19.25

Product Description
The heroes and villains, triumphs and disasters of English history are instantly familiar--from the Norman Conquest to Henry VIII, Queen Victoria to the two world wars. But to understand their full sig­nificance we need to know the whole story.

A Short History of England sheds new light on all the key individuals and events in English histo­ry by bringing them together in an enlightening account of the country's birth, rise to global promi­nence, and then partial eclipse. Written with flair and authority by Guardian columnist and London Times former editor Simon Jenkins, this is the definitive narrative of how today's England came to be. Concise but comprehensive, with more than a hundred color illustrations, this beautiful single-volume history will be the standard work for years to come.

-------------------------------
I've been watching this one for a while. Sometime in the first week of May it started "doing the Alice" and dropping in small increments daily. It finally got below my set point of $9.99, but, because of the steady drops, I think I'll take a chance and wait a bit longer.

Have you never had something on your wishlist that you weren't quite ready to pull the trigger on and decided to watch and wait? These publishers tease people with little price adjustments, probably just to trigger notices from places like eReaderIQ in order to keep their title in readers' minds.

I, for one, can put up with something like this now and then even if it's not my wished-for book they're watching. Doesn't negate the benefits from seeing price drops on titles I might want for myself.

Here's another book "Doing the Alice":

Pao by Kerry Young - Now $0.65
(Starting Price $9.99)

I purchased this when it was around $3 and still haven't read it, but it got a good review in "The Guardian" http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/2011/sep/23/pao-kerry-young-review and should certainly be worth $0.65.

To the Ask Alice Cabal: Please don't despair too much after loosing the respect of all the folks "around here" that Alina apparently represents. I think many more of us appreciate your efforts and find your tracking of this slow-slow-price-down-slide-phenomenon interesting and amusing.

Ok I am usually a lurker and try not to get into these debates but I for one am grateful to consistent posters who post books they aren't interested in because some of those are the very ones I have then picked up.

I am also a lurker who appreciates the work done by consistent posters. The "Ask Alice" postings have been making me smile. They are legitimate postings and not spam because they are about a book with price drops. It is easy enough to skim material and pass over items that are not of interest. Complainers like Alina need to get a life and get over themselves. If any respect has been lost on this forum, it is for the bullies who try to browbeat others.

Tall, Dark and Cowboy by Joanne Kennedy $1.99
Digital List Price: $6.99

Amazing how many people are eager to DV a post but are unable (unwilling ...) to up-vote any. I think most of us post drops we are uninterested in (the one above is a good example, I rarely read romances but my sister loves them). I enjoy seeing price drops and, like Ms Wiz, I have "one-clicked" books that I wouldn't have looked at if not for this forum.

I am basically a lurker but I have started a new thread titled "E-Book Price Drops with Freebies and Conversation Welcome!"

If you only want links to price dropped books and no free books stay here. If you like friendly chit-chat and don't mind seeing books that the price has dropped to $0.00 please consider moving to the new thread. Here is the first post of the new thread so you can see what it is all about and also have your inbox jammed with something you will dv.

"This thread is for people who want to post Kindle e-book price drops but also post free e-books and chat about the books being posted without being down voted. Because the original price drop thread has become contentious with people complaining about "off topic posts" consider this a place to post without downvoters getting upset about posts that aren't just listing price drops. Feel free to post freebies, chat about the books being posted and thank people for posting. This is also a place to freely post "Alices" (books that slowly drop little by little over a period of days or weeks) without being accused of being a shill or spamming the thread.

To get us started here are some recent drops, some may have been posted in the other thread.

The Falling Away is $3.28, list price is $14.99

The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrun is $2.11, list price is $16.95

The Eleventh Victim is $1.66, list price is $18.99

Pao is $.65, list price is $15

Arkfall - 2009 Nebula Nominee is free, list price is $3.99

Bringing Up Oscar: The Story of the Men and Women Who Founded the Academy is $5.73 down from $8.79

Tower of Glass is $3.03 down from $6.99

And of course Ask Alice: A Novel is currently sitting at $2.12"

The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrun (The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrun) is translations of a couple of variations on the legend by JRR Tolkien with authorial comments, plus an editorial essay by his son Christopher. I've read it in DTB format, and enjoyed it (though it's not a conventional novel/story by any means). At this price it's a steal for Tolkien aficionados!

ETA: The US price is $2.11, from T. Cook's post below, I'm guessing it's only for the US. :-(

Sadly, The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrún - "At this price" it's $15.64 for Canadians, so not much of a steal.
