Thanks for that, not sure if I've nabbed a bargain or clogged my kindle with seven books I'll never read.

Are they any good?

I've not read them, but I had an alert to get the first one, so I must have decided I wanted it at some point.

Never previously discounted like this, now 99p each as Deal Of The Day.

James Herriot (5 Book Series)

The Classic Memoirs of a Yorkshire Country Vet:

[1] All Creatures Great and Small (560p) - incorporating If Only They Could Talk, It Shouldn't Happen to a Vet, and three chapters from Let Sleeping Vets Lie
[2] All Things Bright and Beautiful (500p) - incorporating the majority of the chapters from Let Sleeping Vets Lie and Vet in Harness
[3] All Things Wise and Wonderful (450p) - incorporating Vets Might Fly and Vet in a Spin
[4] The Lord God Made Them All (430p)
[5] Every Living Thing (450p)



How they were originally published, and how I read them, back in the day (I remember eagerly awaiting the '76-'77 releases) :
  • If Only They Could Talk (1970)
  • It Shouldn't Happen to a Vet (1972)
  • Let Sleeping Vets Lie (1973)
  • Vet in Harness (1974)
  • Vets Might Fly (1976)
  • Vet in a Spin (1977)
  • The Lord God Made Them All (1981)
  • Every Living Thing (1992)

Strangely these don't seem to be 'Deal Of The Day' (maybe a discounted coincidence?)

The Templars - by Dan Jones

Crusaders: An Epic History of the Wars for the Holy Lands - by Dan Jones

[ Kindle ] The Astral Conspiracy - 5 books - 99p @ Amazon

This collection contains all five books in the Astral Conspiracy series:

The Gate: Landon Thorne is a disgraced archaeologist, a laughing stock in his field because of his unconventional beliefs -- he's an ancient astronaut theorist. No one takes him seriously. Until an alien armada targets Earth. Now Landon's in high demand by the U.S. government. And someone far more sinister.

The Stones: Landon Thorne belongs to an elite group: he's one of the few people who have ever accessed the Akashic Record. He discovers a weapon that could defend the Earth. The Astrals want to stop him. The government wants to control him. Even his allies are hiding something.

The Nine: Landon Thorne is convinced the key to defeating the Astrals is in the vault -- a repository of ancient artifacts, origins unknown, covered with undeciphered glyphs. He's also convinced he's the one person on the planet who can translate the markings. But strange, frightening things happen every time he gets close to the relics.

The Twins: Landon Thorne was abducted by the Astrals. But Reverie Sterling doesn't have time to dwell on his absence. She has twins to raise in a dystopian world. Twins with psychic powers.

The Lab: Time is running out for the planet. The twins insist on traveling to Illinois to find Jovian, their grandfather. He's been communicating with them telepathically and promises he has all the answers the Resistance has been searching for. He does, but they come at a cost. A steep cost.

The Astral Conspiracy series is a taut, fast-paced Indiana Jones meets Falling Skies style thriller that spans the globe and digs deep into humanity’s past, unearthing mysterious artifacts and clues to aliens’ motives for invading our world. It is set in the world of Platt and Truant's groundbreaking Alien Invasion Universe - the original series with over 1000 5-star reviews.

D.L. Cross has a flair for high-stakes, heart-pounding thrillers that will keep you up late into the night. Read the entire Astral Conspiracy series today!

Richard Herring - The Problem with Men: When is it International Men’s Day? (and why it matters)

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B08...b_b_asin_title

Currently down 99p on kindle

For the past decade, Richard Herring has been answering sexist trolls on International Women's Day when they ask 'when is International Men's Day?' in the mistaken belief there isn't one.

If only the trolls had learned to use Google they would realise that there is an International Men's Day - it's on November 19th.

In The Problem with Men Richard expands on his Twitter discussions and tackles some of the big questions surrounding the problems of toxic masculinity - for women, but also for men - including:

- Should men fear feminism?
- Is society sexist against men?
- Could you win a point against Serena Williams?

*spoiler* The answer to all of these is no.
