Fact: E-books are cheap! The first book(s) I purchased were...do I even have to say it? You already know the answer to this right? Just in case you're new around here, it was the Twilight Saga...all 4 books for 1 low price of $36.99! Sa-weet deal!
Fact: I think of a book I want and I can have it almost instantly...even driving down the road. (Well, riding down the road...you know what I mean.)
Fact: It fits so nicely in my purse.
Fact: It picks up right where you left off.
Fact: It saves it's own battery, so you don't have to remember to turn it off. This is such a good thing, because lately I'm forgetting how old I am and all sorts of things...so there's no way I would remember to turn the Kindle off.
I finished my first book on it earlier this week. It was The Scorch Trials (Maze Runner #2) by James Dashner. I highly recommend these books. They're similar to the Hunger Games trilogy. Both stories are set in a post-apocalyptic world, a dystopia of sorts. They both have strong female characters and some sort of underlying love story.
Here's what Amazon.com says about The Scorch Trials:
Solving the Maze was supposed to be the end. No more puzzles. No more variables. And no more running. Thomas was sure that escape meant he and the Gladers would get their lives back. But no one really knew what sort of life they were going back to.
In the Maze, life was easy. They had food, and shelter, and safety . . . until Teresa triggered the end. In the world outside the Maze, however, the end was triggered long ago.
Burned by sun flares and baked by a new, brutal climate, the earth is a wasteland. Government has disintegrated—and with it, order—and now Cranks, people covered in festering wounds and driven to murderous insanity by the infectious disease known as the Flare, roam the crumbling cities hunting for their next victim . . . and meal.
The Gladers are far from finished with running. Instead of freedom, they find themselves faced with another trial. They must cross the Scorch, the most burned-out section of the world, and arrive at a safe haven in two weeks. And WICKED has made sure to adjust the variables and stack the odds against them.
Thomas can only wonder—does he hold the secret of freedom somewhere in his mind? Or will he forever be at the mercy of WICKED?
You can download The Scorch Trials for $8.33 if you have a Kindle.
You can also purchase the hardback from Amazon.com for around $9.00 (plus S&H).
