Cheap books!

Amazon is having a sale of ebooks: over 200 books at under £1.50 each. So far, the only one I'd recommend is The End of Mr Y but you might find something you like there.

If you want ebooks, though, I'd recommend Replica by Lexi Revellian. It's already as cheap as the books in the sale and it's a fun read. I really enjoyed it.
Beth Chandler works in a government research institute, and is accidentally replicated in a flawed experiment. The replica has no official existence, and when she overhears plans to liquidate her, goes on the run. Homeless, penniless and pursued by MI5, she has to learn how to survive on icy London streets. Meanwhile, the original Beth, unaware of what has happened, becomes romantically involved with Nick Cavanagh, the spec op she believes is there to protect her. In fact, he’s hunting her double.
Our lovely Phoenix also has a book on amazon at a low, low price (71p). Spoil of War is
a fascinating account of early Britain, a gripping tale of lust, love and the horrors of ancient warfare. Beautifully written, filled with myriad period details and compelling characters, it takes you deep into the heart of a brutal era -- and into the nature of feminine honor, feminine courage. I was enthralled. – JENNIFER BLAKE, NY Times Bestselling Author
Oh, and if you don't have a Kindle you have no excuse! It's free to download the Kindle application to your pc, laptop, or even some mobile phones. So what are you waiting for?

Oh dear, Kitty! I'm sorry you hated it so much. Let's hope Lexi and Phoenix issue paperback editions, just for you!

Thanks for the tips - always good to have. I have the Kindle app on my 'phone and rather like it I must say.

Oh, how lovely of you to shill for me, sweet FHH! Thank you!

Simon, now that I have a phone that will take the Kindle app that's where I'm doing all of my ebook reading!

Phoenix, I just hope I did your book justice!

My laptop is slightly chunkier than a book (except possibly The Times Atlas of the World), takes two minutes to boot up, has a battery life of about two hours, and is unreadable in sunlight. My desktop computer is somewhat handicapped in the portability stakes. My phone's screen is far too small to sensibly read books on, and in any case I'm pretty sure it doesn't do "apps". And I spend enough of my day staring at brightly glowing LCD monitors without reading books on them too.

For these reasons I have a lovely pocket-sized ebook reader from Sony, for which Amazon have chosen not to provide ebooks. That is my excuse >:P

My other excuse is that I already have two-foot-six of unread books :)

Those are all excellent excuses, sorry, I mean reasons!
