I spent years dillydallying about e-readers… until I got one for Christmas! Dear Mr. S, apparently fed up of my saying yes and no within the same hour, took the matter into his own hands and put it under the Christmas tree, with a shiny, very stylish Kindle paperwhite. I’m very impressed!
I, the old techno-dinosaur, have now little choice but to learn swimming by jumping in the deep end. But the reassuring bit is that I know that many of my faithful blog friends out there have had their own devices for years now.
So, what is your best piece of advice? Can you remember the first title you downloaded on your e-reader? Do you have recommendations about navigating the maze of apparently free books?
In the countdown to 2014 and the fast-approaching arrival of the new baby, I (still) have hopes to review these books I finished:
- A Quiet Flame by Philip Kerr
- For All the Tea in China, by Sarah Rose
- Faithful Place by Tana French
- The Year of the Volcano, by Jean-François Parot
And to finish those still on my nightstand (my nightstand is pretty crowded with baby care books and old books collecting dust, I only list here the books that are – realistically – nearing the end):
- How We Survived Communism and Even Laughed, by Slavenka Drakulic
- In the Woods by Tana French (can you tell I’m hooked?)
- A Life’s Work: On Becoming a Mother, by Rachel Cusk (I am not technically becoming a mother anymore, as this is baby #2, but I remember Litlove’s high praises on this one when Baby #1 was born so the timing seemed right this time around)
I know the change of year is mostly symbolic (although the birth isn’t indeed), but I really feel as if I had a reading and posting deadline for the next few days. How about you?
