Reasons I love my Kindle: #34,208,930,243

Sample books.

Free samples of books. Clicky the (free) sample button and a free(!) sample gets automagically delivered to your kindle.

Well, to my kindle. Unless you're doing the clickying, in which case it will most likely turn up on your kindle.

Currently lined up:

Oh, and a subscription to Asimov's. Brilliant.

And Twittering with authors is fun too - having read and loved JC-G's The Fallen Blade (review incoming), he recommended Lauren Beukes to me, and I recommended Michael Marshall Smith's Spares to her.

And to you, if you've not read it.  Spares is bloody brilliant.

And also just finished Mike Shevdon's (@shevdon) The Road to Bedlam (sequel to the brilliant Sixty-One Nails (Courts of the Feyre 1)  (Magda, if you're reading this, it's still in my desk. I *will* post it to you, soon!)

Phew. Been reading a lot since I got my Kindle.

So, dear reader. What have *you* been reading lately?

I do the same with my Nook... my only issue is that the samples are seldom a full chapter, cutting off mid word or mid sentence. Other than that, they're fun!

normally they've been fine, but one of the samples cut off mid-sentence. Most frustrating!

I've been reading through the SF Masterworks collection. Currently working through "The Rediscovery of Man", which apart from being very inspired short stories, are almost perfect commute length.

I'd like a kindle for my birthday. My current read is The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Think I'm about halfway through it.
