After I posted the first three I went out and about, and noticed I'd gotten several more email notices about books on sale. I haven't stopped to check if this is all from the same publisher or not - I always wonder if there's some pattern as to when things go on sale. Seriously, every time I get one of these sale notifications it's like a little alarm and flashing lights combo go off in my brain, especially when it's a book I've reeeeally wanted but was too cheap to spend much money on the ebook (especially when it's like $15 and up). So there's a real festival of fun for me in these kind of sales. ...Which normally I would be afraid to share for fear of sounding sad and nerdy, but we're all fellow book addicts here, right? And I've gotten used to fessing up to my nerdhood.
At least I can say that this second Simon Winchester book that I've linked to today is one that I can definitely recommend - I'm one chapter away from finishing myself. If you love stories that weave a lot of history into the mix, and history of science in particular, you should check Krakatoa out.
Again all are $1.99 at Amazon US.
Click the link (either on the title or the ones on the cover jpg) to see if you're interested, and again check other booksellers for price matches.
I am particularly full of squee over The Lady and Her Monsters! I've wanted to read that one for some time. I wasn't sure about it due to the reviews - but hey, at this price I don't need to worry about whether I'll like it and give it a chance.
And I can't let myself dig into any of these now because I have oodles to pack before I fly for Xmas break on the 18th. I'll let you imagine how much I'm yearning to sit and read - I'm pretty sure most of you know that that's like too!
Added minutes later: And after I posted yet another ebook sale popped up for the Labyrinth. What IS it with ebook sales today?! I guess I need to stop saying to myself "ok, now that's it for today."
