What's On Your Kindle? (or reading list)

Technology like the Kindle is a wonderful thing; it allows me to accumulate books to read even faster than when I bought paper books. At least I can download samples of books before buying them (though I've occasionally bought a book on accident when trying to add it to a collection, which is much harder to do with paper ones). I thought it might be interesting to share with you what I currently have in my "To Read" collection on Kindle. There are currently sixty-four items. I'll indicate which ones are the full book (F) and which ones are just samples (S).

Phew! And that's not including author or genre on this list, or the twenty paper books I still have to read. I have vacation coming up; looks like I need to spend some of it working on this list. I may update this on a regular basis, but I have a feeling the list will only grow, not shrink.

Wow, okay you have way too much time on your hands LOL. Good luck getting through this whole list though :)

Sandra Ulbrich Almazan said...

Eric, the problem is just the opposite; I don't have enough time on my hands. Otherwise there'd only be thirty or so books on this list. ;)

Hey! Thanks for downloading a sample of mine. I appreciate it. Hope you get a chance to read it someday.

Sandra Ulbrich Almazan said...

You're welcome, Alex! Hopefully I'll get to it before your next book comes out. ;)
