All of the Cradle (7 Book Series) by Will Wight are free. Not sure if it's an error or not, so grab it quickly.

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

Cheapest yet at £1.89, if you can't wait ...

Come Again Kindle - by Robert Webb

Quote:
  • "A genre-defying time-travel tale - part adventure, part love story, part comedy, part dissertation on bereavement . . . a breathtakingly insightful evocation of grief" -- (Sunday Times)
  • "Robert Webb's effortlessly enjoyable debut novel is soaked in nostalgia . . . his execution is smart, unexpected and full of pop cultural nous. It's also a ripping adventure yarn . . . Tender, thoughtful and terrific fun" -- (Metro)
