Head on is very good (it's the sequel to lock in which is also very good).

Deal of the Day ... Be quick !

These Ken Follett epics have occasionally dipped to 99p before, so you may already have 1 or 2 of them saved for a rainy day, but this is a first for the 2 whole trilogies. Should keep you going for a while ...

1. Pillars Of The Earth - 1105 pages

2. World Without End - 1124 pages

3. A Column of Fire - 930 pages

1. Fall of Giants: Enhanced - 865 pages

2. Winter of the World - 929 pages

3. Edge of Eternity - 1185 pages

White Teeth by Zadie Smith @99p - not been discounted for years.

  • An astonishingly assured début, funny and serious ... I was delighted (Salman Rushdie)
  • Relentlessly funny ... idiosyncratic, and deeply felt (Guardian)

Maybe, douglasb, but a bit far for some of us to go ...

First time cheap, now 99p -

Origin Story: A Big History of Everything - by David Christian

Quote:
  • If you read one book this year, make it this one (CNN)
  • A journey through billions of years that nails home the point: Life is a miracle ... [A] remarkably cogent and compelling history of everything (Washington Post)
  • Rather like the Big Bang, the book is awe-inspiring. The processes it describes are all familiar, but I'd never seen them explained with such clarity and verve ... Superb (The Times)
  • Christian tells this story very well, providing, in effect, a short course in modern science. This is a brief history of the universe, and an excellent one (Wall Street Journal)
  • I have long been a fan of David Christian. In Origin Story, he elegantly weaves evidence and insights from many scientific and historical disciplines into a single, accessible historical narrative (Bill Gates)

First time ever cheap, since release -

Losing My Virginity - Richard Branson @ 99p, 600 pages

Quote:
  • "Candid and humorous" (Times)
  • "For anyone burning with entrepreneurial zeal, his reminiscences are akin to a sacred text" (Mail on Sunday)
  • "Grabs you on page one and never lets go ... a rollercoaster ride ... read what makes this brilliant and hardworking man tick" (Spectator)
  • "An incredible man, and this is an incredible autobiography... a great read - sex, balloons, intrigue and money" (Sunday Business)
  • "A remarkable story of business success against the financial odds – having created one of the world’s most admired brand names, Branson is entitled to tell it all." (Evening Standard)

Yes, 600+ titles down to 99p, many for the first time - worth a browse. I've gone for these, and could probably have bought another half dozen.

Timeline - Michael Crichton

Infidel - Ayaan Hirsi Ali

In at the Deep End - Kate Davies

Wilful Blindness: Why We Ignore the Obvious - Margaret Heffernan

The Dogs of War by Frederick Forsyth, probably my 2nd favourite book of all time, well worth 99p

Cheers. Was reading through the post nemesis books but what with the new show they will
Obviously (well i guess) no longer be cannon. But prequels have that bit more scope if that makes sense to fit

I'm reading through the relaunch books myself, too. Going chronologically, currently up to stories from the year 2377! It helps that the books have never been canon so I'm not too bothered by whatever new things appear to contradict them, and they are just really fun stories.
