After a hard, difficult year, I decided to give myself a present: a Kindle.
I bought it during the summer and it has been my constant companion ever since. It's perfect size, makes it easy for me to carry it around in my purse.
I have purchased some good books and have downloaded a lot of free ones.
I read new books from my favorite authors and got some recommendations from good readers.
I have also read some useless novels that were free, but I have enjoyed them for what they were: summer readings.
I've never read inspirational novels, but I did. Some were good enough to have in mind when my girls get older. Others were just rubbish.
In a matter of days, I read the complete collection of Jane Austen's writings. Can you believe that I never read them before?
I got a great book on suicide, specially written for survivors. Yes, I know. I am "obsessed" with death and grief and pain - as my husband says - but that is the way I am.
Currently, I am reading a book on sexuality called "What's love got to do with it?" by John T. Chirban. My kids are reaching pre-puberty and I need to be prepared, don't you think?
If you have any good books to recommend, please send me an email.
