On successive days I received the following messages from Amazon in my Yahoo mail:

Denison Hatch: Kindle Exclusive Books for $2 or Less

Denison Hatch: Kindle Book Deals, $3.99 or Less
 
Note to Jeff Bezos: When you're about to enter your 80th year, time gets more and more precious.

I am not going to spend one hour or six hours with an irrelevant—probably ill-written and boring—book just because it was $6 or $10 cheaper than a book that might be meaningful to me.
 
Jeff, according to your records, I have bought 206 Kindle books from you since 2008. You know my interests:

History - Biography - Memoirs - World War II - True-life Espionage - Hollywood - Middle East - American Politics - Sports - Celebrities - Media - Etc.
 
Jeff, given modern technology, it's easy to analyze past purchases and come up with relevant offers.
 
It's obvious price was never a factor.
 
How about not wasting my time by making offers based solely on price?
 
Denny Hatch's new book is "Write Everything Right!" Pat Friesen writes, "This book is guaranteed to help you fine-tune your writing skills, whatever you write. Denny's wit and craftsmanship as an experienced writer/author shine through on every page." Click here to download (opens as a PDF) and read the first three chapters FREE.
