Kindle and ebooks deals

Recommended Posts

I didn't find anything that tickled my fancy this month, but I'm trying not to buy any books so that's not necessarily a bad thing! :lol:  I was a bit tempted by the Pompeii book by Mary Beard, but I don't read a lot of history and I worry I might put it off forever if I did get it. :roll:

I've read it twice, 10 years apart, enjoyed both times. :)

The first two Adrian Mole books are 99p today (combined in an anniversary edition).

 

Not sure buying them was a good idea; read the first 10% in 20 minutes today, despite the critical acclaim at the time, it hasn't aged very well...

One of our old members, Michael, has a Kindle book available, free tomorrow, Sunday, UK time.

 

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Counting-Clouds-Michael-J-Dixon-ebook/dp/B06Y28KZCR/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1491645842&sr=1-1&keywords=counting+the+clouds

 

Michael has previously published a book, Kicking The Tyres, which was a rollicking good, adventure/action story with a good bit of romance thrown in and I expect this one to be just as an enjoyable read.

Hi Poppy in Aotearoa, I'm dual Kiwi/Brit and have just returned from the land of the long white cloud. Wellington, as they say, cannot be beaten on a sunny day. So special.

 

I tried to find Kicking the Tyres on Amazon but it didn't show up. I wish Michael success with his downloads - go everyone, it's free.

That takes me back! I read that years and years ago when I was a teenager before the television adaptation. :lol: 

 

I`ve never read it ! I was so pleased to find it for free. :smile:

Hi Anna! I love Wellington too, as far as cities go,  the wind adds to the vibrancy although it can make for some pretty lively landings at the airport. :lol: Hope you can make it back again soon.

 

I'm sorry, I should have said Kicking the Tyres was published in book form, not on Kindle (as far as I know anyway).

Yes, I saw that and bought a copy. This is just the sort of book I love.

New month, new deals, and this month there are quite a few good ones! (to many to mention them all, but I will get a plug in for The Day of the Triffids, in case anyone hasn't read it before - a bargin at  £1.99!).

I bought Lincoln In The Bardo by George Saunders from the daily deal today - I've heard it discussed on quite a few of my book podcasts and radio programmes, but it's not been out in hardback long, so full price hb edition is still £18.99, and paperback not due until Feb next year, so thought it would be a while before I bought it, but at only 99p today, I couldn't refuse.
