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!
I finally finished the ARC of What Has Become of You by Jan Elizabeth Watson. I have some thoughts on that one. I’ll have a review up soon.
New to the Kobo
- Bought: I was a lucky winner of a Readathon Mini-Challenge hosted by Jessica of The Bluestocking Society and had $10 to spend. Since I loved Yoko Ogawa’s Revenge, I picked up The Diving Pool ($10.99). Thanks, Jessica!
- Borrowed from library: Nothing borrowed this week but I did put a hold on The Naughty Little Book of Gaelic by Michael Newton. This was published by my local university.
- Netgalley title: After a Twitter conversation, I was sent an invitation to read The Three by Sarah Lotz.
- Downloaded for free: Book Riot recommended The Kreutzer Sonata by Leo Tolstoy
It seems as if it takes me longer to read books on my Kobo. I can’t figure out why. Is it because I can’t skip ahead and go back easily? I tend to do this with paper books when I feel that the story is lagging. I just need to reassure myself that things will get more interesting. It motivates me to keep going. I’ll just put my Kobo down for awhile if the story starts to drag. What about you? Are you a slower ebook reader?
I’m probably going to read The Three next. It sounds like a spooky one about plane crashes and the end of the world. Those kind of books are my jam.
How about you? Are you reading anything interesting on your device? Find any good deals? Tell me about it!
