How about The Hundred Year Old Man. I read it recently and enjoyed it. I think it may still be 20p on kindle. Another one I've got lined up is Capital. May also still be 20p.

Hard to know where to start!

The Hundred Year Old Man is a cracker, agreed. I also have Capital downloaded too, gets some good reviews.

There are loads at 20p right now, even some great free ones too, especially if you fancy a classic or two. If you go into the Amazon Kindle Books page, they have a Top 100 of paid and free books....

I enjoyed the 100 Year Old Man, but I loved Harold Fry...

The Help and The Night Circus are both really good. I enjoyed The Night Circus very much.

Another one I've heard good things about is Mr Penumbra's 24 Hour Bookstore. It's currently around £2.80 (ish) on Amazon. Can't justify buying it myself as I've got quite a backlog to catch up on, but you might like to give it a go.

Thanks everyone

I've already read The Help but I think I'll get the 100 Year Old Man and some of the others mentioned
Should keep me going for a bit!

I loved Wolf Hall and Bringing up the Bodies but I know they aren't for everyone.

The Personal History of Rachel Dupree - 95p and excellent.

What Have I Done? - really, really enjoyed this, and it's £1.59 atm.

The Half Life of Hannah - enjoyed this, £0.95.

Thursdays in the Park is quite good too, £0.20.
