    My two favourite books ever (read multiple times!) are The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas and Shogun by James Clavell althoug at £4.59 Shogun is maybe a bit expensive.

    The Millenium Trilogy (by Stiegg Larsson), just finished the second book, The girl who played with fire, and they are great thrillers. Apart from the second book ther are under £3 on the Kindle Store

    I'd second a number of them. Having just read The Name of the Wind series of books I'm eagerly waiting the next book - although who knows when it'll be released!

    I finished reading World War Z - Max Brooks earlier this week.

    Absolute barnstormer - riveting from beginning to end, an unflinching depiction of the Globe brought to its knees.

    I can't wait for Plan B entertainment to release the film -currently shooting (pun!) in the UK

    A friend of mine (English) had bought this tome in German whilst studying over in Weisbaden. He said the 'Weegie' dialect was nigh on impossible to translate out of German.

    Hat's off though, great book...the sequel was ace too.

    This (The Fat Years eBook: Chan Koonchung: Amazon.co.uk: Kindle Store) sounds interesting which I may pick up for a read.

    The "Sword of Truth" series by Terry Goodkind is a great Fantasy series (~11 books)... Terry Goodkind Sword of Truth 11 Books Collection Pack Set RRP: £103.58 Confessor, Chainfire, Phantom, Soul Of The Fire, The Pillars of Creation, Faith Of The Fallen, Debt of Bones, Temple Of The Winds, Blood Of The Fold , Wizard&#39&#39s First Rul (there are kindle versions of most of them)... Frank Herbert's 6 novels in the Dune series are a great read (his son Brian has added to the Dune universe with another 10 or so books, the stories are alright but the writing doesn't quite compare to the originals)

    Otherwise, as Creese implied, you can use Calibre to convert pretty much anything into a format you can read on the kindle...

    Dont libraries now do a digital rental thing where you can have the ebooks on your reader and they are automatically removed when the time is up?

    Can't agree more, I would've added this to the list of reccomendations but I'm always cautious of being mistaken for some kind of survivalist.

    Granted, 3 months of tinned food chainmail trousers and a cricket bat aren't helping the image.
