Read an eBook Week

Did  you know it's Read an eBook Week?


I can't even imagine how my life would be without my e-book reader (Kindle) and having the chance of reading at the touch of a button. I don't live in the UK or USA and English paper-books are an absolute fortune here in the book stores. I know Amazon charges me an extra tax (>sigh<) for books but even so....








So, this week I'm going to tell you what I'm reading. I'm actually on two books (that's not so unusual):






A Discover of Witches by Deborah Harkness which was horrendously expensive (for me) but well worth it. I love the concept of a centuries old vampire falling in love with a witch. Did you know the world's populated by humans, vampires, witches and daemons? No? Me neither, but I'm going to keep an eye ever open in future.


and...




Alike as Two Bees (isn't that a great title?) by Elin Gregory. I'll be reviewing this compelling story in a short while but suffice to say just now, it's set in Classical Greece and is a historical romance.




There. 


Tell me, is there anyone out there in Blog-land that doesn't read ebooks?


And, also, what are you all reading now (on your ebook reader)? Please tell me because I love to hear of great new books.

  3. I love my Kindle too. Hard to imagine going back to only paper books. 3 of my students even have their own e-readers! :)

  4. I hadn't thought about how expensive it would be to but english language books in a different county. One more good reason to add to the list of having an ereader.

  5. I loved A Discovery of Witches - although I confess I have the paperback version. My Kindle is a constant companion though. Wouldn't be without it!

  6. I got my kindle for xmas and am in love. Right now I'm reading a bunch of free downloaded classics I've never had a reason to read before. AT the moment I'm reading Hawthorne's The House of the Seven Gables. I currently live in Japan so I feel you on the buying books thing. Plus, I'm getting ready to move back home, so I really don't need more books cluttering my stuff up!

  7. I've just finished Muscling Through by J L Merrow and my cheeks hurt with smiling. It's FABULOUS with the nicest narrator one could wish for!

  8. My newest acquisition is Cat and the Dreamer by Annalisa Crawford, not sure if it will be the next one I read though. I've got a lot to catch up on :-)

  9. Thanks everyone. Jemi, I do read a p-book every now and again but I like to go back to Kindle again. Thanks for the book recommendations (all duly noted LOL)

  10. Hi, Susan,

    My kindle has been a godsend too - even if I have to pay tax as well. :) I can't say I prefer it to books, but it's certainly less expensive and I don't have storage issues. Currently, reading something on my Kindle too.

  11. I got my Kindle Fire in November. I. Love. It. I'm reading one Kindle Book and one paper book at the moment.

  12. I bought my Kindle last year and started off enthusiastically but I'm afraid it's gathering dust at the moment while I've returned to 'the real thing'. My hands were hurting and I couldn't work out a comfortable way of holding it. I'll maybe return to it this summer when we go on holiday. I haven't given up yet... and no, I didn't know that there were vampires, witches and daemons sharing the world with us *looks over shoulder nervously*

  14. As any other form of writing, essay writing also requires good command over the English language usage and grammar, along with effective communication skill and diversified knowledge background.explore more
