AKA my love for my Kindle.
(Yes this is part 2. For part 1 go here!)
I have read things from other bloggers about how their ereader has changed their way of reading. I’m a slow reader and I was a little suspicious about this. But they were right! For my birthday my lovely G Man bought me a Kindle Touch and so far since mid August I’ve read 6 books on it (that’s good for me!) – and I’ve read a few real books too! I’m currently 1 book ahead on my Goodreads challenge and I’m reading 2 books at the moment (one whopper of a book which I can’t carry around with me, and one on kindle to save my poor arms!)
So here’s the rest of my list so far:
At the time of the first part of this post I was reading One Moment, One Morning, so let’s start there:
22. One Moment, One Morning – Sarah Rayner
23. Let The Right One In – John Ajvide Lindqvist
24. The Book of Tea – Okakura Kakuzo
25. Coraline – Neil Gaiman
26. Let’s Pretend This Never Happened – Jenny Lawson
27. Alice’s Adventure’s in Wonderland & Through The Looking Glass (read as two books but I can’t find them separately on Goodreads!) – Lewis Carroll
28. Room – Emma Donoghue
29. Seed – Ania Ahlborn
(Again in italics I have marked the books I wasn’t too enamoured with!)
So right now I’m reading Paper Towns by John Green on my Kindle and I’m about to start House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski. It’s a huge tome of a book and it’s supposed to have a cult following. It’s meant to be very scary and when you open the book you will see some of the words are upside down or letters are missing or bits are unfinished. Fonts change, pictures and symbols appear. Some pages have one word and others are so chock full of words that there are no margins. I’m very intrigued by it so I can’t wait to get stuck in!
I’m only 11 books shy of finishing the challenge and I’m really enjoying participating. I wonder how many I’ll read next year?!
Stand by for part 3!
