I've already got that - and Tale of Time City, which I see is also down at 99p - and I find Merlin Conspiracy is now 99p, too, which I didn't have on Kindle and 'sort of' follows on from Deep Secret.

I've got them all in hard copy - mostly 1st ed hardbacks - but it's nice to be able to have them to hand to read when away from home...

Ohhh, that's tempting... I really want DWJ's books in physical form, but I'm not sure I can resist!

Cestina, I wonder that too sometimes! Same with Audible's Daily Deals - a disproportionately high percentage of them seem to be gritty and terrifying-looking thrillers.



Incidentally for Audible members Ann of Green Gables is 95p in the under £5 deals.

I am heading towards the rabbit hole too - especially as the book I want always seems to be in the other country! Though most of my DWJs are with a Czech friend who absolutely loves them.

And in the spirit of buying Kindle editions of favourite books - A Suitable Boy by Vikram Seth is a Daily Deal today. Well worth 99p as I doubt I could lift the book now.

There are more Patricia Wentworth titles free too.

I can never make up my mind whether I like Patricia Wentworth or not...

The Autumn Sale is now on as well and this looks rather fun for dragon enthusiasts: A Natural History of Dragons. It's part of a series. This is the first and only 99 pence.

(I know, I know, those 99 pences add up alarmingly! Sorry...)

Both of these currently 99p:

Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovitch. Magic is real and the Met has a department dedicated to dealing with crime involving magic. Harry Potter for grown ups.

The Game of Kings by Dorothy Dunnett. Swashbuckling adventure in sixteenth century Scotland.

Both first in a series. Aaronovitch knows his London and Dunnett knew her history.

I'm tempted by the Dunnett, as I've had my paperbacks since the 1970s.

A Chelsea Concerto by Frances Faviell is free on Kindle again today. It and the sequel The Dancing Bear were probably my favourite reads of this year so far. I can't recommend it enough. It is a memoir of a Chelsea artists life as a nurse during the second world war, and was written within a few years of the wars conclusion.

At 99p in today's Kindle Daily Deal is Anthony Berkeley's The Poisoned Chocolates Case - another British Library Crime Classic.

Published today is the third A Very English Mystery by Elizabeth Edmondson, and finished by her son, Anselm Audley. A Matter of Loyalty.....

It's currently at £3.98 but is also on Kindle Unlimited to borrow for nothing if you belong to that...
