It’s just going to be a quick post tonight, as I have something else to focus on. I’ve put myself on a tight schedule of banging out one chapter of The Obituarist a night, or at least nearly every night, and so far it’s going pretty well. Admittedly each chapter is only around 1200 words, but hey, it still means I’m getting it done. And having fun with it too, which is pretty unusual for me. So fingers crossed, I should have this draft finished pretty soon and a final, publishable version by early-mid April.
But that does kinda preclude making too many long blog posts, just for the moment.
However, other than blowing my own trumpet about my sudden discovery of a work ethic, I did want to post something else.
As I mentioned on the weekend, I haz a Kindle! And I’m going to New Zealand next week! And it seems to me that I can combine these two facts and end up with plenty to read on flights and long drives without blowing out my luggage allowance.
But finding ebooks is harder than I had originally thought – or, more to the point, finding ones I want to read in the endless ocean of ebooks that gnaws at the shores of the Kindle Store. There’s a blog post percolating in my skull about that, but that’s a topic for another night.
Tonight, instead, I’m hoping you can help a brother out with some recommendations. What are your favourite 2-3 ebooks that come in Kindle format (whether from Amazon or another vendor) that cost 5 dollars or less? (I’m happy to spend more than five bucks on an ebook, but just not this week ‘cos funds are tight.) Tell me what I should buy – and why I should buy it.
