Bargains galore!

What can you get for 99 cents (or 61 pence if, like me, you’re in the UK)? Not a lot, usually.

In the UK, you can buy a 40g bar of Aero. Now, I love Aero, but it would take me longer to unwrap a 40g bar than it would to eat it.

You can get a whopping 57g Bounty bar but, again, it’s not exactly filling, is it?

A bottle of wine will cost anything from £6 ($9.68) upwards. Very nice, but how long does a bottle of wine last? Okay, don’t answer that one. :)

If I wanted to go to the cinema tonight and spend a couple of hours watching a film, it would set me back £7.25 ($11.70) or £9.40 ($15.17) if I wanted the 3D experience.

So you’d imagine that 99 cents - or 61 pence - wouldn’t buy you a lot.

Ah, but I bring good news to all you readers. You’re welcome. For a limited time only, you can take your pick from 10 great mysteries from Carina Press. Yes, all these mysteries are on sale at 99 cents from your favourite retailer.

Wow, those are all on sale?!

As for the 99 cents thing...sometimes it breaks my heart that people forget what a fantastic deal a book is. I mean, 99 cents for hours (sometimes a couple days) of entertainment?! A movie's only 2 hours and yet people pay $10-15. I'd rather disappear into a book any day!

Shirley Wells said...

Exactly, Anne Marie. A book has to be the best entertainment ever!
And yes, all those are on sale. :)

Ooo, there are some good ones I know on that list (and some I don't!)
Thanks for the heads up. I love a shopping bargain.

You're welcome, Rita. :)

I've bought a Dylan Scott and looking forward to it, Shirley. Would have bought more books but my kindle has too many unread books - I've just got to stop!

Shirley Wells said...

Wow, thank you so much, Mike. I hope you enjoy it!
I hear you on the Kindle problem. It's far too easy to click the Buy button. :)
