Plus: Hearing Aid by David Langford

NOTE: Some of these choices came from other posters on the board in other threads, so I can't take full credit, nor can I vouch for the quality of any of the books I listed. I have the first three but haven't read them yet. I've read "Hearing Aid" though (review here).

I recently found a book called "44 Scotland Street" by Alexander McCall Smith for $1.00. It's a really adorable book, and it was originally serialized in the Scotsman newspaper. Easy read at an easy price!

If I can figure out how, I'll post a pic of the cover.

Okay, let's see if I got it right:

Great job on the cover! If you want to have it smaller, insert width=200 (or another number) in the first [ img] tag as shown below (spaces after [ added to make it readable:

This book is part of a series of three, the other two aren't as cheap but will probably come down as they get older. All are available on Kindle, I believe.

By the way, Geemont:   Thanks a bunch for starting this thread - I had been meaning to start one just like it but just hadn't gotten around to compiling my bargain finds list yet.  And now I can't wait to see everyone elses bargain discoveries.   :)

Looks like Betsy has added the links to some from my list. (Thank you, Betsy!) I actually don't know how to do that, but it's high time I learned if I'm going to be hanging out around here. Could someone please tell me where I can go to learn how to do this? Thx!

Oh, I was gonna let Harvey trail behind me turning all by books into Kindleboard affiliate links. Isn't that what we pay him for?

I just finished all of yours, Xia! If you click on the Link-Maker in the top menu, it'll take you to a page with more information. Take a look at that and one of us will also post instructions.

Let me add a big THANK YOU to everyone who takes the time to post those links to Amazon. I know it adds some steps, but it sure makes it easy for our readers to check out the books on Amazon. And, it helps the site to have those Amazon affiliate links out there.

And a bouquet to Betsy for her quiet, diligent work in adding those links to posts that don't have them already.



For instructions on adding links (both text links and book-cover image links) to your posts, see our Link-Maker page: http://www.kboards.com/link

And let us know if you have any questions about it! Thanks all.

- Harvey
