Right now on the Humble Bundle website you can get 16 e-books on astronomy for US$18.
Humble Bundle packages software, books and other media at a discount and part of the proceeds go to charity*. There are at least two titles in the list which I'm sure would be of interest to some members of NavList: Of Clocks and Time by Lutz Hüwel and Visual Astronomy: A Guide to Understanding the Night Sky by Panos Photinos. The other titles are less navigation-related, but not necessarily less interesting.
I have purchased many "bundles" from this website and have never been disappointed. This deal is available for 19 days from the time of this writing.
*** NOTE: I used the "Bulk Download" option and it seems it missed one title: An Introduction to Planetary Nebulae. Also, be warned that choosing that option will result in a new download window being opened for each and every book. ***
* The default "charity" for this bundle appears to be the "Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America". As worthy a cause as that is [ahem], I believe you can pick another charity before checkout if you like. I just went with it.
