    Amazon kindle eBook reductions, bargains, freebies - post your finds here! 12th Mar 12 at 1:18 PM
    It seems that Amazon has started doing short-lived reductions on some kindle books which are down to 20p or so for around 24 hours. I have not had anything official about this, but just noticed them in the kindle books 'movers and shakers' list. Some have previously been posted in this forum by myself and other helpful people, but it would be handy to keep them in one place.

    So please post any short-term bargains here.

    Please don't post details of the (huge numbers) of self-published books that are at low prices long-term (usually 79p)or free books - just genuine short-lived bargains.

    Also, to avoid clutter, please also don't post links to the many books that are permanently available free. Here is a link to the top 100 Free Books in the Kindle Store: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Best-Sellers-Kindle-Store/zgbs/digital-text/ref=zg_bs_fvp_p_f_digital-text?_encoding=UTF8&tf=1

    So here is one short-lived bargain I spotted today for 20p, ususally 7.71 (Edit: offer now expired - price now 3.99)

    Rules of the Game by Neil Strauss: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Rules-of-the-Game-ebook/dp/B005QEE22M/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1331558177&sr=1-1
    Not read it myself, but it has a few good reviews

    Also don't forget the ongoing Kindle Daily Deals (as previously posted) where a different book is available each day for 99p:
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/feature.html/ref=amb_link_161849367_2?ie=UTF8&docId=1000577623& pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_s=right-1&pf_rd_r=1V6FWDY2986TX5AQM0GX&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p =270713247&pf_rd_i=341689031

    You're not being silly.
    The link I tried to give doesn't work.
    Copy it, paste it into word or notepad and remove the return after the 8 then copy it again and it should be ok

    If you just check what the 20p book is every day here; https://play.google.com/store/books
    and then search for the same book on Amazon it'll be 20p there too.

    Here is another one for today:

    Restless by William Boyd at 20p instead of the usual 6.86:

    I have read this book and really enjoyed it.

    Spotted and downloaded this earlier (I'm sure it was more last week, as I'd added to my wish list). Tales of the City: Episode 1 by Armistead Maupin for free!

    It's only a mini version, but a great introduction to his Tales of the City series, whether you've read them before or not (am a big fan!).
