Can I have everyone's reccomendations for a good, cheap/free kindle read please?
I have been scrolling through the store lists for ages but nothing is jumping out at me.

remember me by lesley pierce (think its about £2)- really enjoyed this
a bride for tom (is ok)
Ryans Return wasn ok (free)
reading suddenly a bride at the moment and its a bit rubbish so avoid
(they are all sort of romantic stories)

Thank you. I'll have a look for them.

'A bride for Tom' was good. Read in a day. Just downloaded the sequel 'a husband for margaret'. smile

Most classics can be got for free. (Austen, Dickens, Tolstoy, Elliot etc.)

The new Miranda Hart book is free and funny. Its a compliation of funny incidents that have been sent to her and kept me amused while I was waiting for DD last night smile.

Downloaded the Miranda Hart one and your right about it been amusing. Kept getting funny looks as to why I was giggling out loud. Thank you for the recommendation.

Hi, a friend of mine from work recommended a book called Prospero's Island, It's like an early Jilly Cooper, you know the ones that are girl's names? Really cheap and hysterically funny, I loved it. Have gone off those bonkbuster ones a bit, but have always loved her early ones.

Was reading a bit more of the Miranda one last night, the bit about the pogo stick, the park and dog poo literally had me laughing out loud grin.

Song of Achilles is one of my favourite books this year so far, and it's only 99p atm.

Have just read the Miranda Hart book. Hilarious! Thanks for the recommendation. Nothing worse than laughing uncontrollably on the Tube and having people edge nervously away from you ...

This website have about 16 free books a day and some of them are really good.

What is the Miranda Hart book called and where can I download it for free, please?

Verity99 Fri 28-Sep-12 09:32:31

I started reading Prospero's Island, recommended on here. OMG buy Thornton's chocolates and get reading. My little boy still in his pjs because I can't put it down!

JiltedJohnsJulie Fri 28-Sep-12 11:25:08

Midnight the Miranda book is here. Just a daft bit of light entertainment but such fun!

Verity will wonder off to amazon right now smile

Aw thanks everyone. I really appreciate your help. Hopefully I have enough downloaded now to keep me going through the cold autumn & winter evenings. grin

JiltedJohnsJulie Sat 29-Sep-12 20:04:36
