Three Books on Thursday

On this broadcast of Kindle Books Money, instead of covering a load of books, I focused on just three super interesting Kindle Fiction books in great detail.
Hugh Howey
5 Stars (995 reviews!)

This Omnibus Edition collects the five Wool books into a single volume. It is for those who arrived late to the party and who wish to save a dollar or two while picking up the same stories in a single package.
The first Wool story was released as a standalone short in July of 2011. Due to reviewer demand, the rest of the story was released over the next six months. My thanks go out to those reviewers who clamored for more. Without you, none of this would exist. Your demand created this as much as I did.
This is the story of mankind clawing for survival, of mankind on the edge. The world outside has grown unkind, the view of it limited, talk of it forbidden. But there are always those who hope, who dream. These are the dangerous people, the residents who infect others with their optimism. Their punishment is simple. They are given the very thing they profess to want: They are allowed outside.

1929 (Book One)
M.L. Gardner
4.5 Stars (52 reviews)
417 Pages

With rich, unique characters, 1929 is the first in an epic trilogy centered in the Great Depression. 1929 follows three couples through the economic collapse of 1929 and their struggles to adjust to a sudden and violent shift in lifestyle.
This mammoth novel will take readers to a dark time in American history. A time when so many lost so much and the bonds of love and friendship were the only things that held the fabric of life together. While some say history is now repeating itself with our current economic downturn, 1929 provides hours of entertainment and escape while giving readers a chance to connect and relate to the characters struggles of love, loss and finding hope.
