£5 back in Kindle credit if you spend £15 on Kindle books by the end of the 22nd https://www.amazon.co.uk/b?node=21612023031. If that links doesn't work (as I've already activated it on my account) then you should find it on here. Promotion started on the 8th but not sure if it will count purchases made prior to activating the deal, so I've just bought £15 worth of books on my Kindle Wishlist.

 

To help some of you on your way, Pat Nevin's Accidental Footballer is 99p. Pretty unconventional footballer - spends half the book talking about all the bands he hangs out with and how John Peel was his BFF.

@Stopharage so after spending over 15 quid what then? Where should I be looking for this £5 credit? cheers.

 

EDIT ack! just gotten an email. To anyone else that was wondering the credit will automatically be redeemed against the next Kindle purchase.

It also counts on any purchases you made from the 8th, even if the purchase was prior to you activating the offer. 
 

As soon as you have hit the £15, any time you look at a Kindle book it will show you how much the book will be with the credit applied.

Munich is very good and is very shortly released as a Netflix adaptation and I hope ever jumps on Dark Eden by Chris Beckett…the first of a trilogy about the ancestors of ship wrecked astronauts left on a hostile planet without a Sun. It should be far better known than it is .

Nothing in that list that appeals this month, but I only got my new Kindle at Christmas (my last one died about a year ago), so I've got a massive backlog of all the books I've bought from your previous posts over the last few months, so for the best really.

No Milligan? No Gibson?


I’d also be all over ‘My Friend Anna: The true story of the fake heiress of New York City’, but I listened to an excellent BBC drama / documentary series about it a couple of years ago so not for me, but if you don’t know the story it’s fascinating.

Ah, cheers.  Not heard of that one, so it didn't mean anything to me.  I think I've already read both the Spike Milligan and the William Gibson books, but quite a while ago.
