Today on Amazon’s Gold Box, get 68% off on The Lord of the Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy (The Fellowship of the Ring / The Two Towers / The Return of the King Extended Editions) [Blu-ray]. This is the edition I bought (yes, when it came out and at a higher price!) and it has over 26 hours of bonus “behind-the-moviemaking” material. For the Bonus Deal of the Day, get 33% off on a Garmin nüvi 2557LMT 5-Inch Portable Vehicle GPS with Lifetime Maps and Traffic, a #1 bestseller at Amazon. This appears to be an updated and more feature-laden model than the one we use.

Today is the last day to take advantage of this deal:

Today’s Kindle Daily Deal is The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven ($1.99/KU), by Sherman Alexie [Open Road].

Book Description
The twentieth anniversary edition of Sherman Alexie’s iconic short story collection—featuring a new prologue from the author

The twenty-four linked tales in Alexie’s debut collection—an instant classic—paint an unforgettable portrait of life on and around the Spokane Indian Reservation, a place where “Survival = Anger x Imagination,” where HUD houses and generations of privation intertwine with history, passion, and myth. We follow Thomas Builds-the-Fire, the longwinded storyteller no one really listens to; his half-hearted nemesis, Victor, the basketball star turned recovering alcoholic; and a wide cast of other vividly drawn characters on a haunting journey filled with humor and sorrow, resilience and resignation, dreams and reality. Alexie’s unadulterated honesty and boundless compassion come together in a poetic vision of a world in which the gaps between past and present are not really gaps after all.

The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven received a Special Citation for the PEN/Hemingway Award for Best First Fiction, and was the basis for the acclaimed 1998 feature film Smoke Signals.

This ebook features an illustrated biography including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.
