Time to get serious my ducks. Reading is a good thing. Reading when the books are cheap is an excellent thing. Reading when the books are cheap and it doesn’t matter if you leave it at home is sublime.
I love my Kindle because it means that I can take advantage of Amazons super cheap weekly deals – every week they have a range of titles for under £2. But since I am a snail that takes my entire life with me on my commute to work, I don’t always have space to fit my Kindle in.
Thank the friendly woodland spirits for the invention of the iPhone. My Kindle and iPhone talk to each other*, so that I always start just where I left off regardless of which device I am using – perfect for those moments of armpit travel on the tube.
So here are some books that I have read recently that were not a waste of money – I can’t attest for them being good, but they are readable and great value for money.
- The Little Coffee Shop of Kabul by Deborah Rodriguez
- Blitz Kids: The Children’s War Against Hitler by Sean Longden
- The Blood Of Flowers by Anita Amirrezvani
- The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins
- Call The Midwife: A True Story Of The East End In The 1950s by Jennifer Worth
- How To Be a Woman by Caitlin Moran
*yes I am utterly terrified that my devices are talking about me behind my back – but if they evolve enough to find me a boyfriend I will be ok with it.
