The 2 I'd really like to get - The Moon is a Harsh Mistress & Glory Road - are full price. I think I read Stranger many years ago, but it doesn't ring a bell. It would have been something I got from the library. I know I've never read Starship Troopers (or seen the film for that matter).

Today's Daily Deal on Amazon:

His Dark Materials trilogy by Philip Pullman at 99p each for the 3 books:

Sorry about being late with this one, but the hotel wi-fi is distinctly dodgy and I need to sit in reception to get a reliable connection.
