June’s Book Choice

May 17, 2013

For Mother’s Day this year my husband got me a Kindle Fire HD.  I couldn’t have been more thrilled!

My nerd admission…I love to read, always have…always will.  I was the kid in middle school who always had a book shoved in her face and yes, I took some grief here and there for it.  And up until recently, I could knock out several books a month!

Then Mabel happened.  🙂

This past year I haven’t read anything (other than baby books) and it’s made me desperate to get my hands on a novel…so this Kindle was destined to be mine.

After searching a ton of books on Amazon, pinning book ideas on my Books For Me board, and stalking the pages of Oprah’s Book Club (I love that woman!)…I finally found a winner:

How did you pick Life After Life by Kate Atkinson?

Well, it’s one of Oprah’s suggested books.  Enough said.  She always picks such amazing and moving books so I figured I couldn’t go wrong.  Click here to read Oprah’s preview of Life After Life.

How are you going to find time to read this book?

I figure if I have an entire month to finish, a chapter a day should do.  Anyone could manage that!

Kindle Fire - Life After Life

See…It’s on my Kindle all ready to go!

What type of Kindle Fire do you have?

I have the smaller Kindle Fire HD that is 7 inches.  I wanted the smaller size since I thought it would be more comfortable to hold.  Plus, I didn’t need all the bells and whistles that the large ones have since it will be primarily for reading.  Mabel will be keeping her little sticky fingers off this one since she’s already declared ownership of the iPad.

I’m hoping that some of you might want to read this book too!  Paperback, hardcover, electronic…it doesn’t matter which option you choose!  I would love to have a discussion at the end of the month and find out what everyone thought!  So if you’re up to the challenge, please join me!  😉

    I just finished what I was reading this morning, so I’m game! I’ve downloaded it on my Nook and it’s ready to go! I don’t have a Kindle, or a fancy Nook….I got my first edition Nook for Mother’s Day a few years ago before I even knew what an eReader was HAHA! Good thing my husband was always up on his technology.

      Yay! I can’t wait to discuss with you! Several ladies on FB were interested too, so once I figure out all the details I’ll post more info! It looks like an amazing book!
