A reminder for you not to miss out on our bargain book of the day, an endearing middle grade fantasy entitled The Winter Wolves. Faeries and youthful adventure await!
We're going with another favorite for our featured bargain app today. You love Scrabble, but do you love it on your Fire? New single-player mode means you could be improving your Scrabble skills anytime and anywhere. See you at the qi!
Name: SCRABBLE (Kindle Fire Edition)
Rating: 3.7 stars over 516 reviews (but really much higher since single-player mode was added)
Description: You might as well admit it: You are a SCRABBLE addict. If you're not playing IRL (In Real Life) or on Facebook, you're probably doing so on your phone or Kindle Fire. Well, SCRABBLE for Android is here in an exclusive app for the Fire. It's game on!
Now you don't have to wait until you are in front of a computer or your son finishes his homework to show off your amazing SCRABBLE skills. Just fire up this high-quality app from Electronic Arts and you're in SCRABBLE Heaven. Of course, you can always take on someone in the flesh using the two-person Pass 'N Play mode. But online there are millions of challengers out there--some of whom you probably already know. Play anyone from around the corner to across the country with this app.
Even though you will be playing SCRABBLE on your Kindle Fire, you can take on against anyone else, no matter what device they are using (as long as they have the app). Go ahead and challenge your sister, the iPhone freak. Connect your SCRABBLE account with Facebook and play your current games on that site right from your device. Now you literally have no excuse when someone wants to challenge you to a game--if they even dare.

This next one is a really cool app that I'm definitely excited about. It allows you to answer random questions in anonymous polls. Great conversation starters or just something to get you thinking about a variety of topics. Give it a try!
Name: Show of Hands
Rating: 4.9 stars over 89 reviews
Description: Show of Hands is an easy-to-use real-time ANONYMOUS polling application.
Poll topics include politics, ethics, pop-culture, sports, parenting, health, humor, and whatever seems interesting. Three or four new questions are added daily, and make for great dinner table discussion topics! I do my best to keep poll questions unbiased, and since the application doesn't collect your email or name, you don't have to worry about your opinion being connected back to you or your data getting "out there" somehow.

And finishing off with a cute game that's similar to Bejeweled and Tetris. Tap the scamps to have ones of the same color vanish. Found this one among the Top Rated Apps list.
Rating: 4.6 stars over 139 reviews
Description: Help scamps and send them to a neighboring planet! Scamps inhabit one of the distant planets. They are nice and hairy creatures you will like. Unfortunately scamps have one problem - there is so many of them that there is no space on their planet for all of them!
The game offers five different game modes:
Color Clear: Remove scamps of same colors by touching the scamp who touches at least one scamp of the same color. The more scamps you remove in one go, the more points you get! Remove all of the scamps of the same color to get a Color-Clear Bonus!
90 Seconds: You have 90 seconds to play the game. Your playing time may be extended when you completely remove scamps of the same color.
