Great Kindle Deals This Weekend!!

I've been perusing the Kindle offerings today, and let me just say...there are some GREAT buys this weekend! I'm not an expert on how long these prices normally are available, so make sure you double check the price before you hit buy. :o)  Clicking the book covers will take you directly to the Amazon page to buy each book, and will help me out a little bit as an Amazon Associate.

Now...let's go shopping!
