Ha. Glad it's not just me grin

Do you know Cherry? That thought HAS crossed my mind! That the people who choose the books that are sold in the supermarket, on the 3 for 2 in Waterstones and on promotion on big websites such as Amazon are all in on some conspiracy. Especially when I can't seem to find anything that I actually WANT to read! Get this creepy feeling that somebody, somewhere is keeping all the really good books out of my clutches grin

Ooh hope you like it awhistling. It's made me think about the world differently such as Amazon are secretly controlling us by reducing the prices - making us read all the same books. wink

Oh thankyou, just bought a few smile I noticed Life After Life is also 99p and it's flipping brilliant.

Was hesitating over The Circle but, on the strength of Cherrypi's recommendation, I am going to splash out another whole 99p grin

There seems to be a similar range on Barnes&noble if you have a nook not a kindle. Just bought the luminaries, and 4 others. Well chuffed!

Thank you very much for the tip Duchess

Also got carried away and bought seven books!

Can I recommend the new Sue Monk Kidd when it comes out? I love her.

Mignonette Sat 04-Jan-14 23:17:29

Thanks Duchess

Just downloaded that and a few others!

LCHammer Sat 04-Jan-14 23:09:56

I've bought seven books. With a few paperbacks too I'm sorted till Easter. I'll start with Americanah. My first Kindle experience.

DuchessofMalfi Sat 04-Jan-14 21:49:17

Got a bit carried away and bought quite a lot today grin. Have several month's reading material now.

Excellent thanks for link. I think I will get We Need New Names and A Tale For The Time Being. Have read Harvest and The Luminaries and really enjoyed both (esp. Harvest).

Have just bought Harvest, The Circle and The Luminaries.

Thank you very much for the link smile

The Ocean At The End Of The Lane - Neil Gaiman is 99p as well.
Off to see what else I can find. smile

Thanks. I bought the luminaries, Harvest, We Need New Names and Life After Life - all for 99p.

Can I recommend Gift Of Rain? It's on that list too - although slight dearer than 99p - and it's wonderful.

Kasterborous Sat 04-Jan-14 13:04:59

I'd just come on to see if someone had started this a thread about this. I've been waiting for it to come down in price and have been looking daily. I'm going to look at your link now thank you smile

LCHammer Sat 04-Jan-14 12:42:36

Thanks for that. I'll get DH to buy them too.

Cherrypi - just finishing The Circle, about 50 pages left.

Cherrypi Sat 04-Jan-14 12:09:21

The circle is 99p too. One of my favourite reads of 2013.

Cheboludo Sat 04-Jan-14 11:56:04

Thanks so much for the link - I got 6 books that I had been interested in.
