I received an awesome surprise gift for an anniversary present. We never exchange gifts, let alone have time to celebrate our anniversary due to our daughter's b-day and Thanksgiving all falling within a few days of each other. So I was ecstatic to receive the new Kindle Fire.
Well, after looking at the prices of books on Kindle, I decided I needed to come up with a new strategy for purchasing books. Some books in Kindle format are only a couple of dollars less than the hardcovers!
So here's what I decided to do. I'll still purchase hardcovers/paperback from the bookstore. I still love having books the good old fashioned way. I will also purchase self-pubbed and e-books for my Kindle. I'm super excited to be able to support the e-book and self-pubbed authors now as well.
This means that currently I'm on a book buying binge for e-books and self-pubbed. I want to increase the size of my library. If you have any MG or YA (especially Sci/Fi or fantasy) recommendations for the Kindle, please let me know. Currently, I have the following books (only 3 so far).
Open Minds by Susan Kaye Quinn (I'm really enjoying this one!)
