Rik | 777 comments Right now Amazon has Stephen King's 11/23/63 on sale for $3.99. For those who might not know what its about its a sci fi story about a guy who is able to go back in time to try and stop President Kennedy's assassination.

I listened to it a year or so ago and found it to be one of King's better books. It is massive like many of his are but I was entertained the whole time.

Ricky Holmes | 21 comments In the Kindle store you can find a charming little sci-fi book called "Gamers" for free to download. It's a very enjoyable and quick read. Makes me want to purchase the next 2 books in the series.

Not genre, but Amazon has the complete works of Sherlock Holmes as a free eBook since 12/20/12. Not sure how long that lasts for.

As I think this stuff is in public domain, so it may not be much of a deal, but it's convenient at least.

For the UK, books 1 & 2 are 99p and book 3 is £1.99. That's all three books for under 4 quid!

AndrewP (andrewca) | 2469 comments Just noticed that Bitter Seeds, a former S&L pick, is now only $2.99 on Kindle.

http://www.amazon.com/Bitter-Seeds-Mi...

Then you can get the audio book for an additional $3.99. That's only $7.98 for both, about half the price of an audible credit.
