from Amazon email:
Each month we feature a new selection of discounted Kindle books for £2.99 or less. The deals begin at 12:00 am on the first day of the month and expire at 11:59 pm on the last day of the month.

In the past I got excellent advice on here such as "Heft" - any more for this month?

I enjoyed You Know What You Have to Do

I've heard good things about The James Version, but haven't read it yet myself.

Feenie I read that one, it was quite good wasn't it.

I know Ian Bank's The Wasp Factory was at 99p the other day. It's a great book, if a bit harrowing.

I have bought 'Pilgrims' by Elizabeth Gilbert, a collection of Annie Proulx like short stories, 'Bread' by Ed McBain which is classic Noir Crime and 'The Bookstore' by Deborah Myler which seems to be chick lit set in a NYC bookshop. I also downloaded 'Swansong' on the strength of the first few reviews. At only £1,29 for over 800 pages it seems worth a try.

I have enjoyed Gilberts work and if you like stylised classic crime (originally targetted at male readers I think) then McBain is worth a try. He is well regarded in his genre.

Thanks for the reminder OP.

Howl's Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones. It's aimed at teens but is fab!

If you like chick lit or even if you don't, Sophie Ranald's 'it would be wrong to steal my sister's boyfriend (wouldn't it?)' is rather good.
