Kindle books that inspired films

The Oscars are tonight, and the first thing you should read is Deadspin’s Hater’s Guide to the awards. The second thing you should read is a book that inspired one of your favorite movies. Over 40 of them are on sale on Kindle today for a few bucks each, today only.

Athletic accessory sale


It’s warm enough to come out of hibernation and start exercising again, and Amazon’s celebrating with a sale on athletic accessories, today only.

When I say accessories, I mean accessories: The only things you’ll find in here are socks, underwear, and a single drawstring bag from Adidas and Under Armour. Still, there are a lot of options, particularly on the sock front, so this is a great opportunity to restock your top drawer.


Victorinox Fibrox 8” chef’s knife, $30


Victorinox’s Fibrox 8” chef’s knife is one of your favorite chef’s knives period, and by far the best value in the industry. It’s also the knife I’ve used almost every day for almost five years. Amazon has it for $30 right now, which is an absolute steal for the quality you’re getting.

6-Pack Mentos Gum, $11


Here’s something to chew on: Amazon’s offering 6-packs of Mentos gum bottles for $11 in today’s Gold Box. This deal is only available today, so find your favorite flavor, and grab this deal before the bubble bursts.

8-Pack AmazonBasics 8-piece steak knife set, $17


Amazon makes steak knives now, apparently, and you can get a set of eight for just $17 today. They actually look pretty nice!

TaoTronics 3D VR headset, $13


We’ve seen plenty of deals on “premium” Google Cardboard-compatible VR headsets, but this is one of the only ones we’ve seen that includes a magnetic button on the side, which means you won’t have to pair an external Bluetooth remote to navigate within VR apps. Seriously, if you haven’t played with Google Cardboard yet, you’ll have so much fun.

Anker 24W PowerPort 2 + Lightning cable, $15


The travel-friendly 2-port version of our readers’ favorite USB charging hub is on sale for $15 today, complete with a bonus Lightning cable.
