I love reading books on my ipad or iphone, using the kindle app. Although I do choose to read physical books from time to time (I chose to buy The Alchemist in paperback, as I had a feeling I would want to loan that one out to many friends), it really is nice having your book with you anytime you have your phone. Another benefit is the backlighting – no frustrated boyfriend when you accidentally shine a booklight in his eyes while he’s trying to fall asleep.
I was pleased to see that Kindle offers 100 books for $3.99 or less, every month. This month’s titles include works by Kurt Vonnegut, Jon Krakauer, W.E.B. Du Bois, and, of course, many authors we’ve never heard of.
I recently finished reading The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern (which was AMAZING – definitely a book I’ll be rereading again in a year or two). Currently reading American Gods by Neil Gaiman. Up next: The Alchemist by Paulo Coehlo.
