I don't know if this has been done before but with all the free content on kindle and some
Of it being dire I thought a thread could help find great books at great prices.

I also thought that people could say 'this book is only 20p - has anyone read it is it good?

I started it because

James Herbert - Ash
Is only 20p and I have bought it today
Please post your bargains!

Not exactly cheap, but you can get the first 3 Poirots (Styles, Murder on the Links and Poirot Investigstes) in a bundle for £9.99 (normally £4.99 each).

Also a bundle of the first three Marples for £9.99.

Ooh yes, I enjoyed The Untied Kingdom, which I reviewed when it came out, see here:

If you enjoy chick lit and historical romance, Choc Lit , publisher of the Untied Kingdom, sell nearly all their books for Kindle for £1.99 or less each - this one is currently free, review by someone else but I enjoyed it too.

marks place - am just reading ASH by James Herbert, its OK, not brilliant as yet.

TheCalmingManatee Wed 19-Sep-12 14:12:51

Classics are often Free, i downloaded "five children and It" by E nesbit, i read it to DD, she I loves it

Just got Ash. Havn't read James Herbert for a long while but used to love him as much as Steven King at one time. More ghosty than SK. So will look forward to this read. Great idea for a thread btw.

What a great thread! Thanks Kayanosmile It is hard to know what's good and not in the free/cheapy downloads. I'll have a good look through these suggestions.

I bought The Count Of Monte Cristo for 77p. I've been promising myself forever to read it and get the feeling it's one of those books I ought to have read (but never doblush) No excuse now.

Ascension Day by Johm Matthews is free today. I read his other book Past Imperfect which I also got free and it was very good. Hopefully this one is too.

Are you just listing "books that are cheap" or are you saying "books that are cheap and they are good because I have read them or I know that author"?

Disclaimer - Have not read Tim Weaver books but he gets really good reviews all over the place and 2 of his books are currently 1.99 on the Kindle only (Chasing the Dead and the Dead Tracks)

I have read Monday to Friday Man (20p), can recommend it as a good easy chick lit book.

BabeRuthless Wed 19-Sep-12 18:24:24

Have we all seen that the first Lewis book by Peter May is 20p?

frenchfancy Wed 19-Sep-12 18:55:44

I was going to only list ones I had read and enjoyed, then I saw the free one from the same author. The trouble is alot of the free/cheap books are only on offer for a limited time, sometimes only a day.

elkiedee Wed 19-Sep-12 19:53:24

I'd just come to post about The Lewis Man, though it's #2 in the series and #1 is £2.99 (The Blackhouse). Wish they'd offer his Beijing series so cheaply, though either all of them or one which isn't the 2nd in the series as I paid £5.73 for that. I have 1, 3 and 5 in paperback I think, but I've no idea where two of them are.

BabeRuthless Wed 19-Sep-12 20:04:28

Didn't realise it was number two. Though just over £3 for the pair is a really good deal.

Now that's a good way of looking at it BabeRuthless. I've got them already, though I do recommend them. Can I come back to you when I need help to justify my Kindle purchases to myself?

DuchessofMalfi Wed 19-Sep-12 22:23:19

I'm fairly sure I got The Blackhouae for 20p a while back. Just bought Lewis Man. 40p for both - bargain smile.

BabeRuthless Thu 20-Sep-12 10:42:41

Oh I manage to justify just about any kindle purchase wink

Scootergrrrl Fri 21-Sep-12 06:16:35

The Heat Of The Sun is today's daily deal for 99p and has amazing reviews. Have bought it.

tiggy114 Fri 21-Sep-12 16:26:51

How do i get the daily deal emails? I thought i'd subscribed but aren't getting any emails. And yes, i loved 50 shades! Just read as a fun read though, don't expect intellectual. Think da vinci code wink

DuchessofMalfi Fri 21-Sep-12 18:03:48

Click this link tiggy114 and then on the right hand side it says Kindle Daily Deal - from there you can subscribe to the daily deal email.
