I've just finished reading Jamrach's Menagerie by Carol Birch on Kindle. I've only had the Kindle since last October and I've continued to read paperbacks as well. I'm not sure I'm a total convert yet. It's easier to take the Kindle when we're out and about; particularly if Mr H has a day off and we go to a nice cafe for lunch. Invariably he still has to take care of the many business calls, texts and emails, leaving me sitting like a lemon drinking my coffee whilst receiving sympathetic looks. Now I can whip out the Kindle and we just look like we've got a terrible marriage where we never speak instead!
In Jamrach's Menagerie I was transported right there, with Jaf, and the sights and smells of the docks. I loved the almost poetic language which carries you along a bit like being at sea. I won't spoil it if you haven't read it, but there's a nasty outcome of their voyage which was a tad unexpected, and so I ended the novel with a slightly downhearted feeling.
I've chosen something altogether lighter for my next Kindle read; Breaking the Silence by Diane Chamberlain - the free sample drew me in. I like to mix it up and American novels are something of a guilty pleasure.
