Who can argue with a 4.5-star rating based on over 800 reviews? Ryan Winfield's South of Bixby Bridge is priced today and tomorrow at $1.99.

From the product description:  "Shocking and unapologetic", South of Bixby Bridge barrels along with the "frenetic pace of a Hollywood blockbuster," delivering "poetic prose loaded with images". With gripping drama, witty dialogue, and sexy, jaw-dropping glimpses into the nouveau-riche underworld of California's wealthy elite, you won't be able to put this riveting new novel down. Buckle up and enjoy the read!

A romance/thriller with a 4.5-star rating and over 200 reviews, Sandman is only $0.99 for the next two days. An Amazon reviewer describes it as "a book filled with mystery, romance, and twists that will keep you wondering who the real killer is. A fantastic book, a MUST read."

From the book description: A serial killer on the loose, a woman being stalked, and a homicide detective who must find the connection between the two before it's too late. He collects women. He imprisons them, plays with them, tortures them. Then removes a souvenir. They call him the SANDMAN. Meagan McInnis is being plagued with late night calls, yet when she answers, no one is there. Then one night she makes a grisly discovery in her own backyard.

This Sandman just might make you lose sleep! Get this 341-page page-turner today!

Here's a unique book, described as "thought-provoking, entertaining, and well-written" by its readers. Subtitled "A Heroic Attempt to Build a Simple Electric Appliance from Scratch," The Toaster Project relates Thomas Thwaites' nine-month-long journey from his local appliance store to remote mines in the UK to his mother's backyard  where he creates a crude foundry.

Along the way, he learns that an ordinary toaster is made up of 404 separate parts, and that the best way to smelt metal at home is by using a method found in a fifteenth-century treatise.

Told with self-deprecating wit, the book is hailed by Science 2.0: "It's fun, and you'll get a little smarter, and maybe you'll appreciate our ancestors and their smarts a little more."

There is much more to browse and enjoy at the Big Deals page on Amazon - but don't wait as these deals end on August 23rd!
