Two very different books this month. The happy one first:
This one’s exactly what it says on the tin: the ebook version of Weeks and Days is on sale, currently 25% off at Smashwords. You’ll need to enter the code SSW25 to get the discount, but since it’s part of Smashwords’ big annual ebook sale, I’m under the impression that you’ll be prompted (or at least reminded at some point) to do so. Smashwords offers ebooks in various formats (including, yes, whatever it is that’s used by Kindle) so if reading digitally is your thing, check it out here. The sale runs through July 31.
That–reading digitally–brings me to something I’ve been wondering: do you read ebooks? And, if so, do you prefer ebooks to print, or only read ebooks when print isn’t available, or have no preference, or something else? I’ve heard the many pros and cons of each, but when it comes down to deciding, what do you actually choose to do?
I liked a lot of books this month and really loved one.
This month, there were two books that really stood out for me:
Somehow I managed to read ten books this month (what? I know!) and I didn’t totally love any of them. Especially since I’ve kind of failed at blogging the rest of the month, I feel like I should at least mention something, though, so my favorites were:
I’ve been reading a lot of nonfiction lately. I do read nonfiction from time to time, but it usually takes me longer to get through, and it’s usually mixed in between my more typical children’s fiction. The fact that I got through three nonfiction books, one after another, in the space of a single month means they were all really good.
