Are You Really Looking For The Cheapest Books
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Why do you want to get cheap novels? Obviously to save money right? For me I am not looking for the cheapest books. I’m looking for great quality books that are inexpensive. Problem is a lot of the cheapest books are bad. On the other hand, a lot of the expensive books are bad too. I will tell you about a great cheap book in a second, one of the best books I have read in a long time.

But first, how do you know what’s good and what’s bad? You will know when you read it. And since you paid very little for one of the cheapest books, if it sucks you don't have to read it anymore. Make sense? If you buy an expensive book from a well known author and it sucks, and I have done this many times, I still end up reading it out of guilt for paying so much for it. In the end the whole experience just leaves me angry with a bad taste in my mouth so to speak.

My new philosophy says: buy cheap, and you can not lose, ever! The great thing is that you will be seriously surprised how many unknown authors write incredible books, often way better than those from famous writers who stories are dictated by big publishing houses. Yes there is a lot of gold to mine in the Kindle cheapest books section. This is where the real talent is hidden. A lot of these authors would never see the light of day if it was not for Kindle.

A whole new and exciting universe of e-books has emerged recently and can be download for practically nothing. The big publishing houses can not compete with these prices.

The biggest lie that has ever been brainwashed into the public consciousness is that only authors who are recognized by the publishing industry are worth reading. This is crap! Writers write a book in speculation of publishing it. Apple writes software in speculation that people will buy it. Does that mean Apple is a vanity software writer? No way!

Writers who publish themselves are looked down upon because we think they are vain. The truth is that they are merely speculating on finding a reading audience. A software company does the same. Self published writers are just as valid as the ones published by the big houses, who are also just speculating that people will buy the book. Its all just lies. Kindle has leveled the playing field when you buy and download the cheapest books.

A great example of one of the cheapest books that is, at the same time, top quality is a book called Creator. How do I know this? I’ve read it, more than once. You will love it! Creator combines the profound with the profane, the ancient with the modern, love and cruelty. It has an exciting story line with great twists and turns, and a climatic ending that will keeping guessing until the end! And at the same time it is deep and enlightening!
