Every month amazon has a set of kindle monthly deals. This in the post where I talk about any books which are of interest.
So I’m going to briefly talk about the books I’ve read which are on offer, and those that I have bought myself. Why I liked them/bought them, and what they are about. End links are to the amazon page, any other links are to my reviews. Amazon links are affiliate links but any money made goes back into the blog (e.g. for giveaways)
Please note prices are correct at time of publishing and may be subject to change.
I’ve read a few QI books and they are interesting whilst still being easy reads. I’ve not read this one, and the fact books are good for a quick flick (although probably better in hardcopy) so I will probably buy it.

I really like the gothic feel of Kate Morton books, and for a long time The Distant Hours was my favourite by her. It’s a bit of a mystery story about three sisters.

Lots of people love the film ‘The Princess Bride’ but I’m more of a fan of the book. It’s just funny, and adventurous, and a little romantic. I’m concerned that the footnotes (which are a bit part of the humour) would get jumbled in the ebook version though, they’ve never quite worked in ebooks in my experience.

On one of my previous deals of the moment posts I considered a Tracy Chevalier book, but in the end didn’t buy it. I still sort of want to read another one after reading and liking The Girl With the Pearl Earring. This one is about friendship in the Victorian age

I’ve spoken before about how much I love Forsyth’s books about language. The Elements of Eloquence is about constructing your writing, and should be on the school syllabus, it’s interesting, knowledgable, and readable
