What’s new on your Kobo or other ebook device? First, let’s take a look at the electronic reading I’ve been up to lately. I’ll talk about what I’ve finished, what I’ve downloaded (bought or borrowed), and how that’s working out for me. Grab a coffee and let’s chat!
Over the weekend, I finished The Dream Woman by Wilkie Collins. You can find it for free in the Lock and Key Collection found on Project Gutenberg. I’ll be writing up a review for it for Project Gutenberg Project.
New to the Kobo
- Bought: I keep my eye on the Kobo Daily Deals. Usually I don’t find anything of interest, but on Tuesday the deal was a 3 book bundle of Catherine McKenzie novels: Spin, Arranged, and Forgotten for $2.99 (regular price was $19.99). I couldn’t pass that up! I even had a little bit of money left on a gift card, so I only ended up paying 28 cents.
- Borrowed from library: Nothing this week, but I put a hold on The Golem and the Jinni. I’ve been waiting to see if it would end up in the catalogue and my patience paid off.
- Netgalley title: I was invited by a publisher to review What Has Become of You by Jan Elizabeth Watson. It sounds interesting, a teacher with student who is possibly a murderer.
At the moment, I’m reading Claire’s Messud’s The Woman Upstairs. It also involves a teacher. I hope that won’t be a problem for me when I read What Has Become of You. I bought The Woman Upstairs a few months ago. I hear it’s very good.
I hope The Golem and the Jinni isn’t available too soon. I’m curious about this one, but not enough to buy it. I’d like to finish both those ‘teacher books’ before then. I’m only 11% into The Woman Upstairs so I better get cracking.
Since I’m looking at stats…Do you pay attention to yours? I only pay attention to my progress but there is a section that counts the minutes for each time the book is opened and how many hours I’ve been reading. I haven’t bothered with this before. I wonder if it could end up being distracting. Tell me your thoughts on that in the comments!
How about you? Are you reading anything interesting on your device? Find any good deals? Tell me about it!
