Post your found bargain* books here.

(Link to the 2019 thread: https://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,307749.0.html)

This thread is for all to post their Bargain book finds, no self-promotion please**.  Please do not link through other sites -- use KBoards affiliate or generic Amazon links.

We generally try to keep this thread on topic with book posts only, off-topic posts will be "pruned"!  This helps people who check the thread whenever they see the "new post" indicator or who have the thread set up for "notify."  Thanks for your consideration!

If you have a book of your own to promote, you may start a thread all your own in the Book Bazaar to promote your book, to post news and to talk to your fans!  Please do not post here or ask someone to do so on your behalf.  You may post in the bargain book threads open to authors, found here:
I'd Buy That Book for a Buck
Bargain Books Under $3
(These links may also be found in the Book Bazaar Threadipedia & FAQ sticky thread.)  Of course, you may also list the book in your Avatar and signature.  Thanks!

Tip:  typing the title of the book in the post as well as adding the image will help people searching for the book!



*'bargain' generally means under $5 (inside US - price may vary in other countries) . . .but, buyer beware:  prices can change without notice so look before you click!

**"Self-promotion" includes books that the poster has a vested self-interest in--books by friends and family or books that the member is posting on behalf of the author, to include paid or unpaid promotion

    They are paper books, not Kindle, but Amazon is offering kid books, three for two. Might be good if you are socially distancing with kids!

    The Good Shepherd, by C S Forester

    By the author of the Horatio Hornblower series, this book is the basis for the new movie Greyhound. Ninety nine pennies. I highly recommend it if the situation interests you!
