Rick Broida's "Cheapskate Rules" was a great read at a tiny little price (in keeping with the theme). Read cover to cover you'd get through it in an hour or two and it had so many practical and easy ideas for saving money on all things digital. It's written predominantly for an American audience, but other readers can still make use of most of it. It was well-written, informative, funny and entertaining. As well as a great sense of humour this man really knows his stuff (being a proud [ie: smart] cheapskate from way back, as I'm sure he'd happily attest to). It covers everything from getting discounts and great deals on credit cards and new technology, to free virus-proofing and reviving your PC without spending a cent, to saving on downloaded music and movies, to suggestions for great apps as well as excellent tech advice across a wide range of topics. I've bought about 20 ebooks this year and haven't finished any of them except this one! Mind you it was a faster read than 'Crime and Punishment' but still, just as meaningful, in its own way. :o)
WELL worth the couple of dollars.
