Amazon Kindle Big Deal Sale

A few weeks back Amazon had a "Sunshine Deals" (see my blog post, Amazon Kindle Sunshine Deals) on hundreds of ebooks at prices as low as $0.99, $1.99, and $2.99. That deal ended on June 15, 2011.

It seems that must have been a success, because Amazon is back with a "Big Deals" sale on over 900 Kindle ebooks, at low prices, for $0.99, $1.99, $2.99, and $3.99. This sale ends in less than a week from now, on July 27, 2011. On most of the ebooks on offer, the prices are available at a steep discount off their regular ebook prices, and several clock in a 90% discount when compared with their hardcover or paperback list prices.
These are ebooks, so you can read them with a Kindle (The 6" wi-fi-only device, with 3G connectivity,  the larger Kindle DX, or the newest one that includes special offers) reading device, or via a Kindle app, available on a variety of devices like the Windows PC, Mac, iPhone, Android, etc...

You can browse the bestseller's list, Editors' picks, those at $0.99, at $1.99, at $2.99, and at $3.99.

From the Business & Investing section, I could spot several interesting titles:
The highly popular book that grew out of an HBR article, Competing on Analytics: The New Science of Winning, and its sequel, Analytics at Work: Smarter Decisions, Better Results; the original tome on the Balanced Scorecard methodology, The Balanced Scorecard: Translating Strategy into Action; Congress MP and one-time UN official Shashi Tharoor's The Elephant, The Tiger, And the Cell Phone: Reflections on India - the Emerging 21st-Century Power; marketing guru and serial blogger Seth Godin's Unleashing the SUPER Ideavirus; management guru John Kotter's A Sense of Urgency, Buy-In: Saving Your Good Idea from Getting Shot Down, and The Heart of Change: Real-Life Stories of How People Change Their Organizations; Vijay Govindarajan and Chris Timble's The Other Side of Innovation: Solving the Execution Challenge (Harvard Business Review); psychologist and Harvard professor Howard Gardner's Five Minds for the Future; management guru and the propounder of the theory of 'disruptive innovations' Clayton Christensen's The Innovator's Solution: Creating and Sustaining Successful Growth; Groundswell, Expanded and Revised Edition: Winning in a World Transformed by Social Technologies; a book for aspiring management consultants - Lords of Strategy: The Secret Intellectual History of the New Corporate World; the blockbuster bestseller on time management, by Stephen Covey, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.
