Don't worry about it, that probably came across as brash in hindsight. It's all about love (of adding to the totally doesn't count pile of shame) in here.

This lot are all on offer at the moment. Not sure this is it for the monthly offerings, it's a bit uninspiring all round. 


Soul Music by Terry Pratchett £1.99

You say that, but with the purchase of Soul Music, I am a mere 3 books away from having a complete set of Discworld novels on my Kindle mostly bought for £1-2. Woo and cheers!

Maybe send this to them? I didn’t get an email confirming the deal once I clicked on it but this was on the email I received when they sent me the £5. 


Thanks! I sent them an email explaining everything, added this screenshot. They replied I should call them for some realtime assistance and trouble shooting :hmm:. I told them they can keep their 5 pounds.

Siddhartha Mukherjee - The Song of the Cell: An Exploration of Medicine and the New Human is 99p


Only came out two months ago. Got about a quarter through so far, not as good as The Emperor of All Maladies or The Gene as it’s more disjointed but still worthwhile

It’s been on my wish list for a while, so I’m looking forward to reading it primarily because he writes with such honesty and love about his son. 

If you can get through This article by Delaney then you may be able to get through the book. It’s a wonderful but heartbreaking piece of writing.

I've gone for Glue as I always enjoy Irvine Welsh and the Cunk one although with the latter based on the TV character I'll either love it or give up a few pages in. I bought the Rob Delaney book as I believe despite the cheapo price the author gets full whack? Like others though not sure I'll bring myself to read it, at least not at the moment with a three year old daughter.

Which ones? I'm always interested to know what people pick up. 

It was 6, not 8. There were a few more that seemed interesting but I'm a slow reader and I don't want my backlog to become too big. 


I really enjoy going through your list every time there's a new one and seeing what's there. I've already picked up many books this way that I'd otherwise probably never would've come across. So thanks again for taking the time to do this :hat:

Mary Stewart's The Crystal Cave is in, too - while better known for her romances, this is the first part of a really good Arthurian trilogy. Well worth a punt at a quid.


As I recall - been a couple of decades since I last read it!

Some of my wife's favourite books :)

Mona Lisa Overdrive by William Gibson is 99p today, which is the last of the sprawl trilogy to show up in the deals. That gives me all three for £3, just need Burning Chrome to go on offer now.
