I do not post a lot of deals because they are often fairly personal choices and what is one person’s deal is another person’s over priced book. Free is free, no one complains about free. But here are a few books that I have seen recently that I think are very good deals.
Everyone needs to read the Lord of the Rings trilogy. And if there was ever a book you want in kindle format and not paper, it is the Lord of the Rings. 1308 pages. The individual books are currently $7.59. The trilogy has usually been priced at $14.99 or higher. Only one other time have I noticed it at $9.99
Also you might want the Hobbit to prepare for the movie. The regular version is $7.59. Or you can get an enhanced version with audio and video that is only playable on iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch for the same price. If you get enhanced, you can still read on a regular kindle, you just won’t be able to see the audio/video

For too long, the history of Christianity has been told as the triumph of orthodox doctrine imposed through power and hierarchy. In A People’s History of Christianity, historian and religion expert Diana Butler Bass reveals an alternate history that includes a deep social ethic and far-reaching inclusivity: “the other side of the story” is not a modern phenomenon, but has always been practiced within the church. Butler Bass persuasively argues that corrective—even subversive—beliefs and practices have always been hallmarks of Christianity and are necessary to nourish communities of faith.
In the same spirit as Howard Zinn’s groundbreaking work The People’s History of the United States, Butler Bass’s A People’s History of Christianity brings to life the movements, personalities, and spiritual disciplines that have always informed and ignited Christian worship and social activism.
A People’s History of Christianity authenticates the vital, emerging Christian movements of our time, providing the historical evidence that celebrates these movements as thoroughly Christian and faithful to the mission and message of Jesus.

353 pages, 78 of 103 reviews are 4 or 5 stars – This is a young adult (grades 8-12) thriller. I picked up Identity Man by the same author, but haven’t read it yet. Both are highly recommended by people that I trust.
He’s strapped to a chair. He’s covered in blood and bruises. He hurts all over. And a strange voice outside the door just ordered his death.
The last thing he can remember, he was a normal high-school kid doing normal things–working on his homework, practicing karate, daydreaming of becoming an air force pilot, writing a pretty girl’s number on his hand. How long ago was that? Where is he now? Who is he really?
And more to the point . . . how is he going to get out of this room alive?
