Yes I got that for a random author.
I don’t think I have really used “follow and author”
In any event I don’t think I have paid more than £0’99 for a kindle book for years!

Yes! I started off snatching up any free books - got about 200, then slowly started buying them at 99p. Probably got close to 200 of those now!

Used to read 1 book every 7-10 days, but I've not read anything in the past year. So apart from my watched authors, I seriously need to limit my purchases now!

Is there anyway I can share my kindle library with my dad on his own kindle but with us both having our own separate accounts. So he can’t purchase anything using my details and more importantly he can’t effect the reading status of any of my books etc

I'm not sure whether it's address limited but in the Manage Household part of my account I set up shared kindle libraries between the wife and I. It's literally just access to the libraries. Purchases can only be made on your own account.

Cheers. Just tried
Setup sharing which seems to have worked but when going on my dads kindle it says the library is empty

They show within Contents and Devices as being shared on his account but do not show up within his kindle app

I’ve sussed it. Cheers. Was a small option within the settings to specifically have them show in each device. Thanks all.

99p each, 500+ pages, very well-reviewed, 4.5/5.

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

The Templars - by Dan Jones

Quote:
  • 'Fast-paced narrative history depicted with irresistible verve, bloody battle scenes and moments of laugh-out-loud wit ... This is another triumphant tale from a historian who writes as addictively as any page-turning novelist' -- Observer.
  • 'A fascinating story of fanaticism ... Jones is certainly an entertainer, but also a fine historian who knows how to render serious scholarship into accessible prose. Seldom does one find serious history that is so easy to read' -- The Times.
  • 'Snappy, well-paced ... The author's ambition, he says, is to tell the story of the Templars in a straightforward way and "to write a book that will entertain as well as inform". He has done precisely that' -- Daily Telegraph.
  • 'When it comes to rip-roaring medieval narratives, Jones has few peers, and in the Templars he finds the perfect subject' -- The Sunday Times History Books of the Year.

Dipped cheap for a day in 2018, now 99p for what must be the best-reviewed book I've ever seen! [4.7/5 with 18k votes]

The Tattooist of Auschwitz - by Heather Morris

Quote:
The five million copy bestseller and one of the bestselling books of the 21st Century.
  • 'Extraordinary, moving, confronting and uplifting . . . I recommend it unreservedly' -- Greame Simsion
  • 'uplifting story of love, loyalties and friendship amidst the horrors of war . . . It's a triumph.' -- Jill Mansell
  • 'A sincere . . . moving attempt to speak the unspeakable' -- Sunday Times

It's a novel, but the actual Auschwitz Museum wasn't a fan and said it was "dangerous and disrespectful to history".

It also inspired a weird mini-industry of "Holocaust fiction" that's apparent from the shelves of any supermarket.

Yeh a bit odd when you realise the whole thing was made up (not sure who was doing the making up). But yes there does now seem to be a weird holocaust romance section now.

  • "Smart and sharp...Weir has done it again [with] a sci-fi crowd pleaser made for the big screen."--Salon.com
  • "Makes cutting-edge science sexy and relevant...Weir has created a realistic and fascinating future society, and every detail feels authentic and scientifically sound." --Associated Press
  • "Weir excels when it comes to geeky references, snarky humour and scenes of ingenious scientific problem-solving." --Financial Times

As usual, loads of discounts to start the month -

Meltdown - by Ben Elton @ 99p (480 pages, 4.3/5) first time cheap since 2011
Quote:
  • An entertaining, well-written, often very funny read -- Daily Mirror
  • Very funny... Emotionally engaging -- Daily Mail
The Happiness Hypothesis: Putting Ancient Wisdom to the Test of Modern Science - by Jonathan Haidt
@ 99p (320 pages, 4.5/5) - Look out for the audio-book available for just £2.99 after purchase
Quote:
  • Riveting... Brilliantly synthesising ancient cultural insights with modern psychology and even holding out some faint hope that your happiness, if not your tallness, might be marginally adjustable after all. -- Sunday Times
  • Marvellous... Haidt...takes us on an extraordinary journey... I don't think I've ever read a book that laid out the contemporary understanding of the human condition with such simple clarity and sense. -- Guardian
  • A superbly argued, crystal clear and intelligent blend of new directions in contemporary experimental psychology with traditional philosophical thought... And you know what? Reading it did actually make this reviewer happier. -- Arena
  • A delightful book... By some margin the most intellectually substantial book to arise from the 'Positive Psychology' movement. -- Nature
The Human Tide: How Population Shaped the Modern World - by Paul Morland @ 99p (460 pages, 4.6/5) first time cheap
Quote:
> 'Superbly explained' -- Washington Post

This highly original history offers a brilliant and simple unifying theory for our understanding the last two hundred years: the power of sheer numbers. An ambitious, original, magisterial history of modernity, it taps into prominent preoccupations of our day and will transform our perception of history for many years to come.
