I have subscribed and I was interested in one of the books which said it was $1.99 but when I clicked on the link it took me to Amazon where it was $12.99. Is there something I am missing to get them at the cheaper price?

The deals only last for a finite period of time. The email tends to be sent early morning Aus time so if you don't check it til evening, then the deal may be finished. I missed out a few times for that reason.

The time period is set by the publisher, so sometimes you can click the next day and it's still running.

That sounds strange, I have not had that happen!  Is the Bookbub daily email showing you the books available on Australian Amazon?  Are all the other books in the email showing a different price too?

If you have an Amazon membership then they have something called Prime Reading included. It is very, very limited but they have 1,000 titles and you can borrow 10 at a time.

I have read a few books that way - currently reading the Chrissie Swan book from a few years ago and some fiction.

The inability to use the library and high prices for recent titles stopped me buying a Kindle for my DS for Christmas. The new Kindles coming out seem to be more pricier too, they still have an entry level but no specials at the moment.
