HEY KIDS

GUESS WHAT

I HAS A KINDLE :D

Yup, got one for Christmas. A Kindle Keyboard~ I also got a quilt kit (EEEEEE MORE THINGS TO MAKE) and tuition money and a pretty new sweater and assorted other things~ Best part was when I opened the Kindle case...before I opened the Kindle. I was like, "Gee, wonder what else could be under the tree for me." This was right after my sister opened the cables for the Blu-Ray player that she had not yet opened and said pretty much the same thing.

But yes, I have one and I am a happy girl \o/ And I may or may not have already downloaded all the Arsene Lupin books they have on Amazon because I may or may not be a total nerd like that. But now I have a favor to ask of all you beautiful people...


BOOK RECS. I NEED THEM PLZ :D



What are your favorite? I want to put books on my Kindle for reading purposes, but I'm way out of the loop. So if you've got some titles that you love and think I might enjoy, pretty please share them with me? I'd appreciate it :D


Hope everyone has an amazing holiday, whichever holiday you celebrate ♥ Much love, everyone!

Oh boy.

Dresden Files: Full of awesome dectective work, plus an amazing fantasy world. (13 books and counting)

Almost anything by C. E. Murphy, but especially the Walker Papers. (I'd pass on the The Inheritors' Cycle, though.)

Most books by Mercedes Lackey, though with special recommendations for the Diana Tregade Books, The Elemental Masters (...though not Unnatural issue, that one was disappointing), Tales of The Five Hundred Kingdoms, Black Swan, Joust, the Obsidian Trilogy, The Ship Who Searched and Tiger Burning Bright.

Jim C. Hine''s Princess Series.

...I have no idea how many of those are in e book form, though. Or what you might have read already. XD

ALSO: Geeze guys. You are supposed to hand the presents in ORDER for things like that so the accessories don't give it away!

soc_puppet: Dreamsheep as Lumpy Space Princess from Adventure Time (Can't talk--reading)

Seconding the hell out of Jim C. Hines' stuff; his short story collections are currently on sale as well, in case you want to get a taste of his writing without committing to a whole novel just yet. If you do like his stuff, an omnibus of the Goblin books is scheduled to come out soon (IIRC), so you may want to hold off a tad on those.

Tamora Pierce, though I suspect you are already familiar with her work ;)

If it's available, The God Eaters by Jesse Hajicek.

Can you get manga on that thing? Because if so, Hayate Cross Blade is a laugh a minute, and with all books currently available in omnibus form, well worth the price of admission.

The Skullduggery Pleasant books by Derek Landy. YA urban fantasy and a hoot and a half, IMO.

Have you tried the Temeraire series yet? First one's free!

Speaking of Naomi Novik, all the writing at Archive of Our Own is available for download in e-book format. So if you've ever wanted to pretend you're readnig a printed book of fanfiction, that's a good resource :) I'm planning to upload my own stuff there eventually, but I haven't gotten around to signing up for an invite yet 9_9a

That's all I can think of just now. Happy reading!

I'm going throw out "The Hunger Games" series. And "I Am Number Four" wasn't bad either. You know, if you like YA fiction.

I'm not even sure where to start with recs. lol I have a growing collection of public domain books. Freeeeeeee books. Pick your favorite author and start with one of those books. :)
Ever read the Wren books by Sherwood Smith? The last book in the series is only available as an e-book. :)
Seriously, start looking around. Oo, and check to see if your library has digital checkouts for books.
