[Amazon] Calvin & Hobbes (6 books, Kindle edition) - $1.99 each, today only

Great price for the Kindle edition for Calvin and Hobbes treasuries. I prefer the paper editions personally as I don't know how well they render on a Kindle, but the amount of quality content at that price is unbeatable.

This is under their "Tuesday's Kids' & Teen Deal" so I assume it is only good for today. Enjoy!

Looks like this thread was merged. As others have mentioned, it's also available on amazon.ca. It's 1.99 CDN or 1.71 USD.

love calvin&hobbs ! - thanks they had the diary of a wimpy kid kindle series on sale two days ago for under $2 each too. My son (7) loves to read. He likes physical books but at that price he's going to have to suck it up as they are $15 a book.

Seems like a pretty good deal. I've never heard of Calvin and Hobbes. Is it like Garfield?

Calvin and Hobbes is one of the best comics of our modern age. You will enjoy it! Way, way, wayyyy better than Garfield.

Seems to be that way, since they are advertised as "Kindle Edition".

Had to do a bit of reading to figure out which were which. If the book is 256 pages it means it is a Treasury (just realized it also says Treasury at the end of the book's title), if it is less than that (176 or 128 pages) than it is a Regular book.

The difference is that the regular book is about a year's run of the original newspaper versions. The treasure is the 'best of' over 2 years or so. Without knowing which book covers which time frame the Treasuries on sale may overlap with the Regular books.

No, you can also read it on any Android device that has the Kindle app installed. Not sure if ios has a Kindle app, but you probably can there too.

If you click the "Available on these devices" link on the pages, it'll show what they play on. However, it seems different for each collection. The Essential Collection only works on iPad, Windows 8, Android Phones, Android Tablets and the Kindle Fire. iPhones and Kindle E-readers are out of luck, while the Attack of the Deranged Mutant collection seems to work on more devices (including iPhones and the Kindle e-readers).

Quite simply the best (newspaper) cartoon series there has ever been!
