    Thats a fair number of books! I take it you like the kindle then.

    The problem I’d have with it is what happens to the book after you read it? is it available for re-reading and if so what happens when your kindle breaks/goes out of date?

    otherwise an interesting idea.

    Nice list of books by the way. Shame theres no 5/5s in there.

    I do like the Kindle, and I need to update the list.

    After you’ve read the book you can re-read it. If your Kindle breaks then you can re-download the books for free.

    I’ve been longing for one of these. Good to see an old friend using one so happily. Also wonderful to see an old friend so happy period.

    i do love reading books..and i read some of the books on your list..I can share to you one of my favorite source of books..:)

    This is an old post but that a lot of book and none under a 3 out of 5?

  6. //

    Yeah, I enjoyed them all. 13 Bullets was the weakest, but still a fun little book.

    One point here is that I did read samples of other books, but did not buy them. The Monsters of Templeton was one. So the sample system seems to be working well for me.

    EXC.. one of my favorites is 1984…(10/10) lol i love that kind of books..they trying to open our eyes with so many cynical and funny ways

    I found 1984 too sad, too unjoyful, too big brother like and kinda too real.

    I give it 8/10 for being a good read, but personally i found it disturbing…

    I just put down DUMA KEY for the last time and am sorry I am done reading it. King has once again proven what a great author he is; how he can take any subject, any idea and turn that into a book that you just don’t want to end.

    I guess you lost your copy of 1984 huh? The exact reason I will never buy a Kindle. Amazon is playing big brother. haha

  11. //

    No I did not lose it, because I bought a valid version, and not the pirated version that Amazon withdrew.

    Amazon have since committed to never doing anything like that again.

    I’ve had to slow down how many books I’m reading on my kindle. I think I was close to 50 for the first six months of 2011. I still have 100 or so in my ToRead collection, mostly free classics.
