If you have a Kindle (or a PC/iOS/Android device), and like cheap books (I assume you do, but who knows, maybe you derive pleasure from haemorrhaging cash), Amazon now offers a daily deal for books.
Quietly emerging from the mist yesterday, the Kindle Daily Deal will introduce a single book at midnight PST (5pm AEST) each day at a discounted price. That deal will last for 24 hours before the next one pops up. Today's deal is Water For Elephants, a novel "set in the circus world circa 1932" featuring "star-crossed lovers who overcome incredible odds in a world in which even love is a luxury that few can afford". If that's your thing, get on it. [Amazon, USA Today]
