Why I Love My Kindle...

Currently listening: Princess by Magna Carta :)

A few months ago, if you had asked me about whether I wanted a Kindle or how I felt about ereaders, I would've went on a very long tirade. Like so many others, I was so totally wrong. You see, I was worried that I would be contributing to the "print is dead" idea and making matters worse, because though I adore my Kindladoodle (my nickname for it) nothing will replace physical books in my heart. If I suddenly stopped collecting physical books, I would be wasting my beautiful bookshelves! I'll always swap books and collect them (and bookmarks too!) I love the designs and dustjackets and the smell of paper and ink, especially old book smells. Now with my Kindle, I'll be more selective about what print books I get, saving my shelves for special books. I've only had mine for a few weeks now, and I've already warmed up to the major benefits. 1. Kindle books are so so much cheaper-in fact, I bought a novel yesterday for 99 cents. You don't have to pay for shipping and a lot of older titles are free, because they're out of copyright. Most of the stuff on my wishlists range from 99 cents to the most (upcoming) expensive Kindle books (books on my pre-order I NEED list) at 10.99 and 11.99.

I love that they have so many pretty case options for Kindles too--I got mine on Etsy.
A Kindle can hold a quite a few books, and it's weirdly exhilarating to have so many books I want so cheap and easily accessible and to be able to carry so many books with me wherever I go. I've been reading it everywhere. At breakfast, in the car...on the toilet...OK maybe not!

I think it's probably the best decision I've ever made. I've found *whispers* several sites for uhm....well, a black market for Kindle books...

I also am a member of Scribd (7.99 a month for unlimited reading AND audiobooks), which I love, it's like Netflix for ebooks, and has lots and lots of titles to rent. I did try Kindle Unlimited, but I found their selection weak and full of naked airbrushed people self-published erotica. I like good erotica after a bubblebath as much as the next person *wink* but I decided after looking at all three options selections: Scribd, Oyster and Kindle Unlimited that Scribd was better fitting of my reading tastes, and they're always adding new books, which is assuring, as there's still so many books I wanna rent. I've come to the conclusion that I shouldn't have to buy every book I want to read, especially when quite a few times I've been let down by a novel.

Well, that's my two cents. If you're considering an ereader, I want to steer you away from the latest e-ink reader, Kindle Voyage. I made that mistake before I switched it for my Kindle Fire. Not only is it in colour, but you can also take pictures on it, Skype, and apps for renting systems like openlibrary.org, Scribd and Oyster are only available on Kindle fire and tablets and NOT available at all on regular Kindles. Kindle Fire also has an audiojack to listen to audiobooks with, which is a plus. Kindle Voyage is ok for general reading, but it's so small, and compared to the Kindle Fire...it seems underwhelming after all the build up for it (I'll be using the Voyage for vacations, I think) I generally only use my Fire for random surfing  (looking up a picture of a castle mentioned in a book, or something of that sort), reading and Skype text messaging and taking random pictures, as I have no interest in playing games or watching movies on it, but it's perfect really.

If I could meet up with my past anti-Kindle self, I'd say "What are you thinking?"

Absolutely Terrifying.
The Fog - James Herbert

Yep James Herbert you have a fan for life now.



Its really good to find authors that are from your country The fact James the auhor is from my old hometown! And comes out with the books he does is just mind blowing to me. He is up there with Stephen king to me and is truly Talented,


I 1st Picked up this book when I was a teen on holiday It was a book left in my aunty’s holiday Villa got intro a few pages and it truly disturbed me to the core, to the point were I even felt I was far to young at the time to be reading such a scary book. But the few pages I did read stayed with me for life. Especially the one with the cows and the farmer I have no idea why. So I felt it was time to Buy this book I buyed it on Amazon.co.uk and snuggled down with my kobo and candle ((For that added effect!)) and started reading...



 "This time he Brought up a man, A man covered from head to foot with dust and dirt. A man who gibbered and screamed. A man who had to be restrained by 4 others. from running back and throwing himself into the blacken depths. A man who was insane."


A peaceful village in Wiltshire is shattered by a disaster which strikes without reason or explanation, leaving behind a trail of misery and horror. A yawning, bottomless crack spreads through the earth, out of which creeps a fog that resembles no other. Whatever it is, it must be controlled.


At once your in the story, and don't leave until the end. I couldn't put it down. you feel like you are a 3rd eye to all that is happening in the story and i honesty have to say This is one of the most intense horror books i have read James really doesn't hold back after a few pages in And i  went and got all of his books i had to so there will be more reviews of his books to come! Although dated and written in the 70s you would think it was a modern day Horror book It has a sort of zombie feel to it too. Its a total jaw dropping horror fun ride of a book and A book a recommend for any horror fan's collection.
