  1. Mad Dog: The Maurice Vachon Story is currently on sale for $4.99 on Kindle. I really liked Bertrand H├ębert's Patterson book, so this should be good too.
  2. I guess I was tracking this in ereaderiq.com, because I got a notification today that it's free. Do Not Try This At Home: A Cautionary Tale About Wrestling by Christopher Holley (Author), Kabita Studios (Illustrator) It's a children's book about wrestling. Looks like fun! You need a tablet to read it though - a regular B&W e-ink Kindle won't work. Note: Scroll down past the Kindle Unlimited "read for free" button and click on the button under $0.00. Not sure how long the freebie will last. https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B01KOPXRZK/
  3. Pat Laprade's book Sisterhood of the Squared Circle is $2.99 on Kindle. The last time it was this price, the deal was already dead by the time ereaderiq.com notified me, so it might not last long. https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B01M5IK3DQ Note: I haven't read it, but at this price, it was an easy buy for me.
  4. How is the David Shoemaker book The Squared Circle: Life, Death, and Professional Wrestling? It's currently on sale for $4.99 on Kindle, which is its lowest price to date, according to ereaderiq.com. I really liked the author's articles on Deadspin, but is this more of an overview of wrestling history? I'm kind of burned out on those (and I still have The Comic Book History of Professional Wrestling to read anyway). https://smile.amazon.com/Squared-Circle-Death-Professional-Wrestling-ebook/dp/B008BM4MN0/
  5. The Mildred Burke book Queen of the Ring is currently $1.99 on Kindle. https://smile.amazon.com/Queen-Ring-Muscles-Diamonds-American-ebook/dp/B008UX348O/
  6. Amazon's traditional Black Friday/Prime Day coupon code: NOVBOOK18 for $5 off a $20+ book order. I'm thinking of using it to get the Nitro book. One note: For some reason, using coupon codes seems to take away your "verified purchase" status if you review the book, if you care about such things. Made me look like an illicit bootlegger when I reviewed @Liam O'Rourke's Pillman book, even though I did purchase it legitimately from Amazon. Might've just been a glitch at the time though. Who knows?
  7. A couple of new Kindle deals: Free (wrestling novels) - The Condemned - Buddy Cooper Finds a Way: A Novel - The Secret Life of Dr. Demented 99 cents - Ted DiBiase - Rey Mysterio: Behind the Mask I remember the Mysterio book being surprisingly great.
  8. Full list of price drops on WWE books: 99 cents - Andre the Giant: A Legendary Life - Showdowns: The 20 Greatest Wrestling Rivalries of the Last Twenty Years - Batista Unleashed - Cross Rhodes: Goldust, Out of the Darkness - Diary of a Heartbreak Kid: Shawn Michaels' Journey into the WWE Hall of Fame - My Favorite Match: WWE Superstars Tell the Stories of Their Most Memorable Matches - The World Wrestling Entertainment Yearbook 2003 Edition - Wrestling for My Life: The Legend, the Reality, and the Faith of a WWE Superstar - WWE Legends - Super
  9. Yep. Several of them are. I'm going to post a list in a few minutes.
  10. Cross Rhodes: Goldust, Out of the Darkness just dropped to 99 cents on Kindle. Just be aware that it's more about Dustin's drug issues and daddy issues and less about his wrestling career, so don't expect any deep insight on his great matches and angles. I may re-buy it on Kindle anyway - not sure yet. I haven't checked to see if any other WWE books have dropped in price. I'll update the thread if there's anything else. Edit: More below...
  11. Chiming in with a recommendation for Teeny: Professional Wrestling's Grand Dame. I was in the mood to read it after listing to the first few episodes of the Jerry Jarrett podcast. It's an absolutely riveting read and a must for any wrestling fan, historian, etc. You can borrow it for free with Kindle Unlimited or get the Kindle book for $4 otherwise. The paperback is around $15. However you choose to read it, it's worth it.
  12. I thought the @Liam O'Rourke book was fantastic. What was Bischoff's problem with it?
  13. Where is this book available? I can't find it on Amazon. Google leads me to https://wcwnitrobook.com/ but I have no idea if that's the right book. The ebook price is way out of whack, and only in non-Kindle ePub format (I can convert it with Calibre, but the conversion is never perfect). Plus, the site doesn't exactly look professional or like something I'd feel confident giving my payment information to. Edit: I just noticed a PayPal option, so at least there's that. I have no idea why you wouldn't launch a book on Amazon in this day and age. Hopefully it eventually shows up there,
  14. A bunch of WWE-published books are on sale for 99 cents on Kindle: As always, narrow the reviews by Kindle edition to make sure there are no OCR conversion issues (typos, bad formatting, etc. that weren't in the paper versions). - Are We There Yet?: Tales from the Never-Ending Travels of WWE Superstars - Big Apple Takedown (WWE) - The Condemned (WWE) - Have More Money Now: A Commonsense Approach to Financial Management (Wwe) - The Legends of Wrestling: "Classy" Freddie Blassie: Listen, You Pencil Neck Geeks (Wwe S) - Lita: A Less Traveled R.O.A.D.--The Realit
  15. Jimmy Korderas's book is now $5 on Kindle. Likely a temporary sale price, but it's been that price a few times before according to ereaderiq.com. That site's price-tracker alerted me, so I bought it this time. The Wrestling Journeyman: Life and Times of an Indy Wrestler: From History MAKER to History Teacher by Dusty Wolfe is currently FREE on Kindle. This is a full-length book, not one of the weird 10-page articles he sells a bunch of on the Kindle store.
