Books of Poetry for $10 or less...
I happened to be on Amazon today (okay, I'll confess, I wanted to see how my book was doing # wise in the world) and was surprised to find that it currently priced at $10.88 (It's normally $16). That is close to what I pay for copies of my book!
So if you ever wanted to get my book, it's at an excellent price on Amazon today (I say today because I don't know if you notice, but Amazon fluctuates with it prices & I'm not sure why. Normally, my book is discounted at about $12.88 - Susan Rich's book also from White Pine Press The Alchemist's Kitchen is at $12.48, so I think that's about what our books normally sell for on Amazon).
Anyway, I decided to look around at my favorite books and see who else has a poetry book at $10 and here's what I found--
POETRY BOOKS for $10 (& some change) and less--
(my newest book) Letters From the Emily Dickinson Room, currently on Amazon for $10.88.
Jeannine Hall Gailey's book Becoming the Villainess is also for sale at $9.45!
But you'll want to get yourself 3 books so you can get the free shipping, so here's a few more poetry books I recommend that are $10 or under today on Amazon--
Lana Hechtman Ayer's What Big Teeth: Red Riding Hood's Real Life book which just came out in March of last year about the real story of Little Red Riding Hood. ($10)
Richard Siken's Crush, a past Yale Younger Poets Prize book that's become a favorite of mine. ($10.80) I'm really late on buying/reading this book, but it's incredible, even with a cover that always makes me look twice-- is that really his thumb?
Another new favorite book of poems that I just love by Keetje Kuipers-- Beautiful in the Mouth (A. Poulin, Jr. New Poets of America) also $10.88 - I just bought this one about a week ago and I love her poems.
Martha Silano's Blue Positive coming in at $10.20. Always a fav. Of course, Marty's new book is out The Little Office of the Immaculate Conception: Poems, but it's at $11.78, so it's just a bit higher than that lovely $10 price tag.
So there you go, poetry for $10 & some change or less. Have fun, bibliophiles!
Interesting... your book is listed at $12 for me. Amazon does give different prices to different people based on their browsing/buying history; sometimes it pays to clear your browser's cache and look again. :)ReplyDelete
(not that it isn't worth $12 or even more! argh, I still need to buy a copy - it's at the very top of my list!)
bizarre! I just signed out and signed back in and it upped it to $12! The NERVE!ReplyDelete
I didn't turn off my computer last night, I wonder if I got yesterday's prices?! SO weird.
I wonder if any of the others are wrong?
Sigh...well, just as my list of Go Buy These was down to 3, you have given m a few more to add to it. That thing will NEVER be cleared off!ReplyDelete
Also, if I may, a plug. My book "A Mouth for Picket Fences" is also under 10 (just barely...$9.99) and SHOULD be on Kindle within a few days for $2.99...
Thanks for the suggestions!
Your book is going to be available on Kindle?! That's very cool. There aren't many poetry books for sale.
Thanks for mentioning your book, also under $10!
Yes, but, as you can imagine, the formatting was a HORRIBLE task. It literally took my publisher (Needfire) to get its poetry titles formatted for Kindle screens. But is IS possible!ReplyDelete
Amazon.com has its on-crack aspects. I was ready to comment that Weathered Steps can be purchased for way under $10, but Amazon lists it as $74. Try %6.95 plus tax.ReplyDelete
