My Kindle-with-special-offers just informed me that David Foster Wallace’s Infinite Jest is on sale for $1.99 today in Kindle format. I wouldn’t be inclined to report every $1.99 book I came across (unless it was one I really liked), but it was just a couple of weeks ago I had occasion to post about this one, so the synchronicity struck me as amusing.

Other than my post, we previously mentioned this over-1,000-page doorstopper here and here. At $1.99, that’s less than a fifth of a cent per page—and you won’t even have to cut the page numbers off with a bandsaw!

Learning about little bargains like this I’d otherwise miss by not slavishly checking Amazon’s sale pages every day is part of why I love the special offers.
