My book finally arrived in Southern Africa, at the cool cost of 60 McDonald’s hamburgers (ZAR 1,009.00). I said to the publishers, Guys, guys … Now the first price domino has fallen. The Kindle edition, with free Kindle app, is down to $3.44 (ZAR 59.50).

@AmazonHelp It looks as though the only matches available are from yesterday. My husband is able to watch on his Kindle but my app is down completely on my TV on my Sky box.
