Thursday Amazon Deals: Fringe, Chuck, X-Men, Die Hard, Winnie the Pooh, espresso maker, more!
(Monday deals include Coen Brothers movies, Sons of Anarchy, World War Z, Marvel flicks, and more. Tuesday's include Twilight, kitchen stuff, James Bond books, The Three Stooges, and more. And yesterday's deals include White Christmas, The Hobbit, toys, and more stuff.)

Yay! The Amazon Deal of the Day gets you the complete runs of Fringe or Chuck! Fringe runs $59.99 on DVD and $75.99 on Blu-Ray (both 62% off), while Chuck runs you $63.99 (57% off) on DVD and $71.99 (60% off) on Blu-Ray.

A lot of seasons of Breaking Bad are on sale, but the first three on DVD at $9.99 a pop are probably your best bets. You can use the money you save to buy a lot of meth.

X-Men: First Class is $7.96 (68% off) on Blu-Ray.

Die Hard: 25th Anniversary Collection (which includes the first four movies and a special) is $19.99 (67% off) on DVD. The first movie remains a classic, the next two are fun, and while I haven't seen the fourth, it does have Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Timothy Olyphant in it, so probably can't suck completely.

As seems to happen every year, Battlestar Galactica: The Complete Series is on sale for $99.99 (50% off). A good price, but if ever a series went off the rails due to lack of planning, it was this one (well, and Lost).

Although it's backordered (so you'll need to find the Amazon price in the "More Buying Choices" box on the right), the Blu-Ray version of Human Planet at $21.98 (60% off) is a great deal.

In games the PC Download of Tomb Raider (the new one) is $12.49 (38% off).

In kitchen stuff, the BELLA Espresso Maker is $17.99 (66% off). This is another backordered item, so look under "More Buying Choices" to see the actual Amazon deal.

In books, The Complete Tales of Winnie-the-Pooh is on sale for $13.95 (66% off) in a nice hardcover set. You can also nab the hardcover Hogwarts Library (with Quidditch Through the Ages, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and The Tales of Beedle the Bard) for $17.04 (43% off).

In Kindle Books, a daily deal includes Holly Black's The Field Guide (The Spiderwick Chronicles) for $1.99.

Finally, in MP3, you can grab 111 Amazing Pieces of Classical Music for $.99 (less than a penny a piece)

The Winnie the Pooh set is already sold out. Pity, it would have made for a nice XMas present for someone...

True, although they claim to still be taking orders, FWIW. There was a Doctor Seuss one that actually vanished while I was prepping my post (the price, not the item).

Is it wrong that I do half my holiday shopping through these posts?

Well, I wouldn't say it's wrong! :-)
