I have an alert on the author, so I often get notices. I may have to cancel them. :)

Randy Harmelink | 2706 comments Maybe we should call these Crenelatious Books? :)

CBRetriever | 422 comments works for me, but then Open Road Media (I buy a lot from them) is also always reducing the price on their books really often. I browse the ereaderiq.com Home page with my settings this way

More than $1
30% Discount
All (not just popular)

so i see a lot of books repeat and repeat and repeat

DolphinBlue (dolphinblue12) | 45 comments When I used to check ereaderiq drops frequently, the following book showed up EVERY DAY with a price drop to free. It was listed on Amazon twice: one free and the other around $5. My theory was that he alternately made each one free every other day. Terrible. Someone stated in response to my review that it may have been the Kindle Unlimited edition that was free, but that was not what I was seeing back then.
