Thread: Kindle Daily Deal Grabber Thread

  1. #1

    Post Kindle Daily Deal Grabber Thread

    This is a demo thread for my upcoming "Kindle Daily Deal" grabber mod. Amazon refuses to provide an RSS feed for the Kindle Daily Deals and the 3rd party feeds available leave a lot to be desired. The best one announces today in fact they were no longer going to bother with daily updates.

    This mod will grab the data straight from Amazon's deal page and product page and bring that info right to you and your users.

    Automatically add your Amazon affiliate code to all links in the post.

    Lots of options to customize the look of the threads or posts it can make.

    I am still testing this mod to make sure it holds up to the differences between daily deals but when it's ready I expect to release this as a free mod here on

    "Riflewoman Perini refreshes romantic suspense with an unusual protagonist: Jasmine “Jazz” Parker, lead sniper for the Jefferson County, Colo., sheriff’s SWAT team. Jazz lives by her mother’s dying advice never to let anyone into her own heart, so this Amazonian beauty holds back from the easy camaraderie of her team, just as two years earlier she halted a steamy romance with former army ranger and journalist Luke Montgomery. Jazz’s tightly held secrets make her the target of jealous rivals in the sheriff’s office, and a psychotic stalker from her excruciating childhood also makes an appearance. As she struggles to overcome these difficulties, she also battles her raging lust for super-sexy Luke. Perini convincingly ratchets up the pace of Jazz’s tribulations with high-tech armament and high-heat passion before the independent, no-nonsense heroine predictably signs on to be Luke’s partner, friend, lover, and wife." -- Publishers Weekly

    Post Kindle Daily Deal: Rena's Promise - 26th March 2012

    Kindle Daily Deal for 26th March 2012

    Title: Rena's Promise By Rena Kornreich Gelissen, Heather Dune Macadam

    About: When the first transport of women arrived at Auschwitz on March 26, 1942, Rena Kornreich Gelissen was among them, and her sister, Danka, soon followed.

    Gelissen, who was on the first Jewish transport to Auschwitz, describes in this account the constant struggle for survival in the camp. She soon learns there were no guarantees. Rena's motivation came strongly from a promise to her parents to keep her younger sister, Danka, safe. Her account describes the relentless specter of death while at the same time showing how prisoners would risk their lives to smuggle medicine, clothes, and food to other prisoners. Because Rena was an early prisoner in Auschwitz, she describes some of the confusion at the beginning and the realization of what was really happening to the Jewish people. Helpful features of the book include historical notes and a section describing the fate of the people the sisters knew. This memoir captures the horror of Auschwitz in a clear way that helps the reader understand the atrocities perpetrated there. Recommended for Holocaust collections.
