Wedn (eBook): The Apparitionists: A Tale of Phantoms, Fraud, Photography, and the Man Who Captured Lincoln’s Ghost for $2

Among the Wednesday 2/10/21 Amazon daily deals there is an ebook that touches up on paranormal photography. It is the 357-page “The Apparitionists: A Tale of Phantoms, Fraud, Photography, and the Man Who Captured Lincoln’s Ghost” by Peter Manseau going for $2. You also earn a $0.20 Great on Kindle credit. If you already have a “Great On Kindle” credit, it will be automatically applied to your order. Recently Amazon increased the duration of “Great on Kindle” credits to run for 30 days instead of just a week.

The ebook averages 4.5 out of 5 based on 90 global customer ratings. You can get a Kindle sample (the beginning of the book) OR you can “Look Inside” and randomly jump around inside the ebook (with a web browser, not on the e-reader)…

A brief summary of the ebook on the Amazon product page:

“A story of faith and fraud in post–Civil War America, told through the lens of a photographer who claimed he could capture images of the dead”

Woot Plus is running another iteration of their Garage Sales, this round good until 2/22/21 at 11:59pm central time, or earlier for items that sell out (and quite a few items do indeed sellout before the expiration; those that don’t, get recycled to future daily deals and garage sales and bargain bins and Woot-OFFs and such)…

Not among the Electronics Garage sales but under the Computer Garage sale we find the return of an old friend from 2020, the Adobe Photoshop Elements 2020 for $32 [Disc only]. Up to three per customer. It comes with a 90-day Woot warranty [whatever that means for software]… Shipping free for Prime members (one-time connection of Woot-Prime accounts needed) or flat shipping for the calendar day purchases for non-members…
