They're all short stories. Between 20-40 pages each. I don't want to dictate to anyone else but I find even 99p paying over the odds for that little content. There's been a trend recently where people are shipping novellas out implying they're full length books (You have to essentially read the small print to realise).

Looks brilliant, I think, as I go to buy it. "You already own this item". I have far too many unread books.

Yep I've just done the same. I've decided my Kindle books don't count towards the "pile of shame" as they're not taking up space on my book shelves

The superb This Is How You Lose The Time War is 99p today. 
 

A sci-fi novella which won a Hugo and a Nebula award, it’s a brilliantly crafted read. 


It is brilliantly crafted, but ultimately unsatisfying as a story I found, it just doesn’t end anywhere interesting (but it’s certainly a great journey that takes you there!).

 

Unlike say Station Eleven, which is definitely worthy of the similar hype it received, being equally brilliantly crafted and a very solid story to boot.

I'm a hopeless romantic, what can I say?

Oh, I haven't heard of Station Eleven...

A River in Darkness is a unique book on North Korea. While most accounts are very positive about their subjects' lives after leaving the country, this one also delves into the prejudice that North Korean defectors face in their new homes, which is quite eye opening.

I've also read this - it's excellent.  VERY eye opening indeed, and thoroughly recommended.

The superb Say Nothing: A True Story Of Murder and Memory In Northern Ireland by Patrick Radden Keefe is 99p today. 
 

It’s a highly informative, engaging and entertaining deconstruction of The Troubles. It’s always been a topic I knew a bit about but never really felt I had a rounded understanding of what went on. One of the best books I’ve read this year. 
 

It’s also Audible’s deal of the day too.
