What's the best day to start a Kindle Countdown deal?

I'm thinking of starting a promotion soon, but not sure when to start it. My sales are not in sufficient quantities to use my own data, so is there anything out there to indicate when people are most likely to buy books, or browse for bargains? My instinct would be to include a weekend.

My book sells best during the week, but I knows it's the exact opposite for others.

Thanks Mads. I'm sure there isn't a definite answer to this, but wondered if there were any known trends.

My sales are best at weekends - a Sat/Sun are best for me.
