Please recommend books you enjoyed that are 99 cents or less for the Kindle. Bonus: blogs that cover the same.

Rumor has it that my absolutely darling husband may be returning from two weeks away with a brand-new, long-desired Kindle for his very excited wife. This is delightful news.
The only problem is that I read at the speed of light. Were we not perpetually broke, this would be fine, but we are indeed broke and so I am swapping my $15 a month gaming budget for a $15 a month Kindle habit. I therefore would like you recommendations for free and 99-cents-or-less Kindle books. There seems to be hundreds of thousands of these on Amazon, I lack an understanding of how to filter them, and I'm a little overwhelmed.
I am not looking to re-read my way through the classics. I like crime and suspense fiction (Cornwell, Connelley, Le Carre, Francis), including but not limited to anything involving coroners or women detectives. Literary fiction is also very welcome; I enjoy John Irving, Gail Godwin, and A.S. Byatt in particular.
I have a prejudice against romance, fantasy, SciFi and self-published novels. I am willing to get over it for fabulous reads.
Bonus round: As I was unlikely to get one, I have paid zero attention to the Kindle until now, so any blogs that cover bargain lit for the Kindle would also be appreciated.
