If you’re wondering who we are, rest assured that you’re not the first one to wonder about us.
We are just a couple of cheap chicks – wait, that doesn’t sound quite right. We are just a couple of ladies who love expensive things when the price is reduced to 80% or less of original price. Our grandmothers called it being frugal or thrifty. For a period of time, that fine art of stretching the dollar was lost by most, but today, it’s the new cool.
We’re from good farm families in the American Midwest, but we have found that the thrill of a good bargain transcends cultures. We are tickled pink at being able to bring cheap reads to you each and every day.
As we get a grasp on the types of books that appeal to our UK readers, we’ll adapt. Please share feedback on the types of books and content you’d like featured and we’ll do the best we can. Right now, I’m just dying to say we’d love to join you for a spot of tea. Can we do that sometime?
Every day, we list cheap reads available for your Kindle e-reader through Amazon. We guarantee no book will be priced over £6. At least once a day we post a SuperCheap read for less than £2. We also post FREE books as soon as they become available. The only thing better than cheap is free. We don’t usually post free offerings of samples, previews, chapters, or other limited content. Our motto is: The book, the whole book, and nothing but the book.
Follow us on Facebook or Twitter to keep up with the daily postings and announcements.
Working with Amazon to connect readers with bargains has been a rewarding experience for us. We don’t get to pick which books are on sale, but we ferret out the cheap reads in all types of genres – mystery, romance, history, how-to, business, young adult, you name it. We’ve done the hard work so you can start reading as soon as possible.
If you follow Kindle pricing very much, you know that the LIBOR is more stable than some book prices. At the time of our post, the price on the post is the price Amazon is offering. If the price is right for you, we encourage you to buy it soon because it could go up without notice. Most books offered for free are usually only available for a limited time. Be sure to double check the price before one click buying!
Occasionally, an e-book will drop even lower than the price we list on our post. We don’t know that to call that buzz you get when you realize that something you want to buy is even cheaper than advertised, but calling it a cheap thrill seems crass. If you have a suggestion for that momentary feeling of euphoria when you realize you just saved a few pence or more, let us know. We might be able to use it on the site and we’ll give you credit.
We haven’t read 99.99% of the books that we will be putting on this website, so we can’t pass along our opinion on the read. We do take our own advice and buy lots of cheap books for our e-readers and post reviews of those we have read and recommend. Several people review for us, but reviews are always written in first person so you won’t know who has reviewed the book.
If you have anything you would like to tell us, please use the form via the Your Two Pence Worth tab. We love hearing from you and knowing what you think of DailyCheapReads. We love to hear good things and we take seriously your suggestions for improvements and postings.
On Saturdays if we aren’t doing a special event, we feature Savings by the Bundle. The Kindle store features quite a few books that can be purchased in bundles, saving money over the buying the books individually. We’ll highlight those for you so you can save.
We love cheap and if we can find a book being offered in the Kindle store cheaper than £2, we will post one of those daily. Look for those under the SuperCheap tab.
You won’t find certain books on our website. If there’s a warning about violence, language, sexual content, or anything of that nature, the price doesn’t matter. We choose not to put those books on our website.
We will note a limited number of independent authors and publishers. Our main emphasis will be mainstream publishers deeply discounted books.
