Thanks for that, enjoyed all his books.

Not sure if anyone has kids, but the first 21 Horrid Henry Books are £3.99

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Horrid-Henr...gateway&sr=8-1

That's a hell of a lot of Horrid Henry books for £4

Has occasionally dipped to 99p before - highly recommended (by me), and highly reviewed (by Amazon, 4.8/5, 800 ratings)

Trevor Noah - Born A Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood



Quote:
  • Mind-blowing as ******* (COSMOPOLITAN)
  • An engaging, fast-paced and vivid read . . . Essential reading not only because it is a personal story of survival, leavened with insight and wit, but because it does more to expose apartheid - its legacy, its pettiness, its small-minded stupidity and its damage - than any other recent history book or academic text (GUARDIAN)
  • Powerful... The story of his life is full of chase scenes in which he runs, hell for leather, from spankings, from the long arm of the law, and from the swinging fist of his stepfather... a unique perspective (THE TIMES)

New month, lots of price drops (too many to list), including a couple of Folletts.

This caught my eye - not been 99p apart from a 1 day dip. Published in 2016. 600+ pages.

All Out War: The Full Story of How Brexit Sank Britain’s Political Class Kindle Edition - by Tim Shipman

The late-2017 sequel is a reasonable £2.99 - Fall Out: A Year of Political Mayhem

Quote:
Tim Shipman has been a national newspaper journalist for sixteen years and has a wealth of experience reporting on British and American politics and international relations. Currently the Political Editor of the Sunday Times, Tim has covered four British General Elections and three American elections from the US.
  • ‘I can't imagine a more even-handed or better sourced, all points-of-view account of the biggest story in British politics since WWII … A fine book’ ANDREW MARR, Sunday Times
  • ‘Shipman’s book is by far the best. It is a detailed, often pitch-perfect account that delivers the tale with an infectious sense of human drama – no mean feat, given the task of completing the whole thing so quickly’ JOHN HARRIS, New Statesman
  • ‘The essential account … Shipman has spoken to every key individual to produce the definitive first draft of history, a comprehensive yet impartial study of how Brexit won’ Financial Times
  • ‘Excellent … Shipman convincingly marshals fresh evidence to prove what we already half-knew’ WILL HUTTON, Observer
  • ‘One of the best political journalists of his era … It’s impossible to fully comprehend what happened on June 23 and the ensuing two weeks without reading this book … Brilliant’ – IAIN DALE, LBC

I don't think I've read any James Herbert since I was a teenager, and his ebooks are rarely discounted, so at 99p I'm gonna give this well-reviewed and relatively recent novel a go.

The Secret of Crickley Hall - by James Herbert, 2011, 600+ pages.

Lots of good cheap books about ! These have all just dropped to 99p (and audiobooks for the first 2 are available after purchase for just £2.99) -

The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair - by Joël Dicker (2014) 650 pages
A crime story. A love story. More than 2 million copies sold worldwide. And now a major 10-part MGM TV series starring Patrick Dempsey and Ben Schnetzer.
  • 'It's like Twin Peaks meets Atonement meets In Cold Blood' Daily Telegraph.
  • 'A smart, immensely readable, impressively plotted page-turner' Metro
  • 'The tale is expertly told. An accomplished thriller' Independent.
  • 'Spellbinding ... a top-class literary thriller ... It is maddeningly, deliciously impossible to guess the truth' The Times.
  • 'Dicker has the first-rate crime novelist's ability to lead his readers up the garden path ... An excellent story' Sunday Express.

All That Remains: A Life in Death - by Sue Black
  • "Black’s utterly gripping account of her life and career as a professor of anatomy and forensic anthropology manages to be surprisingly life-affirming. As she herself says, it is “as much about life as about death”." (Guardian)
  • "An engrossing memoir ... an affecting mix of the personal and professional." (Financial Times)
  • "One might expect [this book] to be a grim read but it absolutely isn’t. I found it invigorating!" (Andrew Marr)
  • "A model of how to write about the effect of human evil without losing either objectivity or sensitivity ... Heartening and anything but morbid... Leaves you thinking about what kind of human qualities you value, what kinds of people you actually want to be with." (New Statesman)
  • "For someone whose job is identifying corpses, Sue Black is a cheerful soul ... feels like every episode of Silent Witness, pre-fictionalized. Except, you know, really good." (The Times)

Emotional Intelligence - by Daniel Goleman
Daniel Goleman, PhD, covers the behavioural and brain sciences for the New York Times and his articles appear throughout the world in syndication.
There was a time when IQ was considered the leading determinant of success. In this fascinating book, based on brain and behavioural research, Daniel Goleman argues that our IQ- idolising view of intelligence is far too narrow. Instead, Goleman makes the case for "emotional intelligence" being the strongest indicator of human success. He defines emotional intelligence in terms of self-awareness, altruism, personal motivation, empathy and the ability to love and be loved by friends, partners, and family members. People who possess high emotional intelligence are the people who truly succeed in work as well as play, building flourishing careers and lasting, meaningful relationships. Because emotional intelligence isn't fixed at birth, Goleman outlines how adults as well as parents of young children can sow the seeds.
  • "A thoughtfully written, persuasive account explaining emotional intelligence and why it can be crucial to your career."--USA Today
  • "Anyone interested in leadership . . . should get a copy of this book. In fact, I recommend it to all readers anywhere who want to see their organizations in the phone book in the year 2001."--Warren Bennis, The New York Times Book Review

Erebus: The Story of a Ship - by Michael Palin - bit of a strange one from MP, but very well-reviewed. First time cheap.
  • "Thoroughly absorbs the reader. . . Carefully researched and well-crafted, it brings the story of a ship vividly to life." (Sunday Times)
  • "[Palin’s] narrative is driven by a deep sympathy for explorers and adventurers, while also being illuminated by flashes of gentle wit . . . It’s a fascinating story that he brings full-bloodedly to life, stripping away the barnacles of the past to reveal the hidden history of a ship." (Guardian)
  • "Magisterial . . . A natural storyteller, [Palin] captures beautifully the sense of awe experienced by Ross and his men as they encountered the wonders and terrors of Antarctica . . . He brings energy, wit and humanity to a story that has never ceased to tantalise people since the 1840s." (The Times)

'London' has never been cheap before (since 2011), and now just 99p for the 1300 page epic !

Weirdly, his similarly themed Paris (800 pages) seems to be permanently at 99p (maybe as an intro to his work ?)

London - by Edward Rutherfurd

"Remarkable . . . The invasion by Julius Caesar's legions in 54 B.C. . . . The rise of chivalry and the Crusades . . . The building of the Globe theatre . . . and the coming of the Industrial Revolution. . . . What a delightful way to get the feel of London and of English history. . . . We witness first-hand the lust of Henry VIII. We overhear Geoffrey Chaucer deciding to write The Canterbury Tales. . . . Each episode is a punchy tale made up of bite-size chunks ending in tiny cliffhangers."--The New York Times

My short story, "The Mysterious Mr Gooch" will be FREE on Amazon Kindle for 48 hours from ~ 8.00Am tomorrow.

It serves as the introduction to the bad guy in my YA mystery trilogy (parts 1 and 2 available, part 3 due early next year). It's less than an hour's reading, and at zero cost, what have you got to lose?
