OT: Happy Birthday, Georgette Heyer Sale

Tuesday, August 16th is Georgette Heyer's birthday. In honor of that birthday, the publisher of her ebooks has temporarily dropped the price of the books to $1.99 for this week only. They usually range from $7.99 to $9.99 so this is getting four or five books for the price of one. Also included in the sale is Georgette Heyer's Regency World by Jennifer Kloester. I bought most of these books in paper--including Kloester's book--years ago. I recommend Georgette Heyer's Regency World as a fun reference book to the Regency period which also lets you know about some of Heyer's quirks vs. the reality of the Regency. My sister and mother both borrowed and enjoyed the book although they are not avid Heyer fans. Heyer remains one of my own comfort reads when my brain is tired and full and I've already zoomed through my other comfort reads. I'm thrilled to get some more for my Kindle at a great price.
