What's On Your Must Read List?
The awesomesauce present that I speak of is my Kobo. This has been an invaluable device to the mama of a rabid nursling (I mean, to the mama of a breastfed baby). There are those that have been blessed with the skills (and the not-so-ample-bosom) required to nurse hands-free, I bow down to you. I have not acquired said skills, so reading an.actual.book during late-night nursing sessions was an exercise in frustration (read page. shift hands to read next page. set book down. flip page. rinse & repeat).
Enter the Kobo. Want to read what's going to happen on the next page just push the button (mine is the "low-tech" non-touch). The thrifster (aka: Extreme Cheap-O) in me loves that there are a tonne of free books to be had (and I can check books out from the library or share, how awesome is that?). The thrifster in me is saddened at the number of author's that I.love. who have some new reads available (read: non-free eBooks). *sighs* But, since I will be going back to work soon, I'm going to need something to read during my lunch hour, so it's like an investment or something... right? Right?
So here's a peek at my "I-Gotta-Get-My-Hands-On-These" List:
Eve by Iris Johansen
Quinn by Iris Johansen
Under an Afghan Sky by Mellissa Fung
Before I Go To Sleep by S. J. Watson
Blood Ties by Kay Hooper
Fallen by Karin Slaughter
The Silent Girl by Tess Gerritsen
