I dont personally own a Kindle, I prefer to hold a paper book between my fingers, however I can appreciate what a marvel they are, having access to so many books in one device. One marvellous thing is the wealth of free books (older out of copyright) and also the resurgence of out of print novels, which it probably hasn’t been profitable to re-publish.
If you are looking for a good read this year here are a few recommendations:
- Persuasion by Jane Austen – The story of Ann Eliott who is re-introduced the the man she was persuaded to decline becoming engaged to when she was very young.
- Lady Audley’s Secret by Mary Elizabeth Braddon –
- The History of Tom Jones, A Foundling by Henry Fielding – theres nothing stuffy about this historic romp of a novel with heaving bosoms, highwaymen, adventure and love.
- Three Men in a Boat – When three (hypochondriac) friends (and Montmorency the dog) decide to take a boat trip down the thames they get lost in a maze, go swimming, get rained on and have an unfortunate incident with a tin of pineapple.
All these books can also be bought in paper form but theres lots out there in digital format to explore
