We all know that a good book is often just the perfect gift for someone. We also like to save money when we can. Retailers know this, which is why they have big sales after major holidays. The problem is that those sales happen after the holiday, which means we're able to buy gifts for next year, but we're stuck this year.
Once we buy these sale items, we must then store them away until the holiday rolls around again, which risks the gift's getting damaged or lost in the meantime. Nice for the seller as hesh can get rid of excess stock easily and still realize a profit. Not so nice for us, the buyer, when you consider the risks.
How about a sale before the holiday? How about helping customers save a bit of money this year as a token of your appreciation for their business? Well, that's what I've done with my books: put 'em on sale now, before the holiday. To show my appreciation to those who have purchased my books, I've reduced the prices on most of those books by as much as 50%. Not all of them, but some.
I'm sure business experts are shaking their heads at my ignorance of common business practices. That's okay. They are free to shake their heads as much as they like. This isn't for them or "accepted business wisdom." This is for you, my readers. This is my way of thanking you.
This isn't just another time- or quantity-limited gimmick, either, nor do you need some coupon to realize the savings. The prices won't automatically go up after some arbitrarily decided date. You can realize these savings now or anytime in the future, and they apply to everyone.

Thank you for your purchases this year and may all of you have a wonderful and joyous winter holiday.
