Great Kindle Deals Newsletter - Monday, 30th May 2011

Hi everyone, hope you had a lovely Spring bank holiday. This week there's a bit more exciting news in the Kindle world, as well as some free and cheap books.

1. Kindle 3G also gets Special Offers in US - You may remember a few weeks ago we reported that the Kindle Wifi is being offered at a $25 discount in the US in exchange for adverts on your homepage and lock screen. They have now extended this to the 3G kindle which does make more business since in reality, as they dynamically updated the ads 24/7. The 3G Kindle with adverts (Special offers) is available now for $164 instead of $189 for the non-ad-supported Kindle.

2. Amazon doubles Kindle battery life - After the latest Nook was released in America, Amazon has claimed that the current Kindle 3, including those previously manufactured, have a battery life of 2 months instaed of 1. The reasonapprently is because before the battery life stated was too conservative, to be fair I do agree, my current Kindle charge is at 50% charge and was last charge about 4 weeks ago.

A former teacher and political activist, Nick was the love of Sarah Bone’s life when they met at university, but they haven’t seen each other for thirteen years. Nick's only career option now is to drive a cab (illegally) for his brother’s firm, where he discovers Ed Clark again, this time as a colleague, and has a love affair with Polly Bolton. Nick has a mystery of his own eating away at him: who told the police about his dope-growing operation five years ago?The old chemistry still sparks as Nick reconnects with Sarah.
