Great Kindle Deals Newsletter - Saturday, 9th July 2011

Hello everyone, welcome to this week's edition of Great Kindle Deals. I know some of you subscribe to the New York Times so there's some exciting news in this week's newsletter, this week I've substituted the "Cheap books" section for a "Highest rated books" section as a one-off, however looking at the prices these books are still all very cheap and mostly under £5. Let's get straight into the content:

1. NYT on Kindle - Businessweek reports "People who subscribe to The New York Times on the Kindle and Nook electronic readers are now getting unlimited access to the newspaper's website at no extra cost. The additional option became available Thursday, slightly more than three months after The New York Times began charging $15 every four weeks, or nearly $200 per year, to read more than 20 articles a month on its website." The New York Times costs £17.98 per month.

Bestselling books:
1. Allen Carr's Easy Way to Stop Smoking: Be a Happy Non-smokerfor the Rest of Your Life (Allen Carrs Easy Way) - £4.49
Rated 5 stars average from 779 reviews
Synopsis: "The revolutionary international bestseller that will stop you smoking - for good. 'If you follow my instructions you will be a happy non-smoker for the rest of your life.' That's a strong claim from Allen Carr, but as the world's leading and most successful quit smoking expert, Allen was right to boast! Reading this book is all you need to give up smoking. You can even smoke while you read. There are no scare tactics, you will not gain weight and stopping will not feel like deprivation. If you want to kick the habit then go for it. Allen Carr has helped millions of people become happy non-smokers. His unique method removes your psychological dependence on cigarettes and literally sets you free. Accept no substitute.

2. The Help by Kathryn Stockett - £3.99
Rated 5 stars average from 621 reviews
Synopsis: "Jackson, Mississippi, 1962. Black maids raise white children, but aren't trusted not to steal the silver. Some lines will never be crossed.

The Help is a deeply moving, timeless and universal story about the lines we abide by, and the ones we won't. Itis about how women, whether mothers or daughters, the help or the boss, relate to each other - and that terrible feeling that those who look after your children may understand them, even love them, better than you . . ."

3. Holes by Louis Sachar - £0.99 
Rated 4.5 stars average from 517 reviews
Synopsis: "A complex story, riddled with the harsh imagery and barren despair, Holes is a perceptive and intricate homage to family and friendship which never shies away from the harshest of realities yet injects the story of a seemingly hopeless boy with a sly, sideways humour that crackles against the backdrop of the arid wastelands of the desert. An absolute must for anyone, young or old, who relishes an intelligent, courageous and dynamic read. (Age 11 and over)"

4. Noughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackman - £3.59
Rated 4.5 stars average from 332 reviews
Synopsis: "Sephy and Callum have been best friends since childhood, and now they are older and they realise they want more from each other. But the harsh realities of lives lived in a segregated society are beginning to take their toll: Callum is a nought--a second-class citizen in a world dominated by the Crosses--and Sephy is a Cross, and the daughter of one of the most powerful men in the country. The barriers they would have to cross to be together at first seem little more than minor obstacles to the two idealistic teenagers, but soon those barriers threaten not only their friendship but their lives."

Rated 4.5 stars average from 5 reviews
Synopsis: "If his powers are discovered, his father will destroy him...

With the help of a youth pastor with a guilty conscience who navigates the world of church and faith, March is determined to find the missing girls while proving he's still one of Houston's best detectives."

3.  Concrete Underground  by Moxie Mezcal
