Bookshelf Tour #1: Kindle

Inspired by Dani from Pen to Paper's amazing video of her bookshelf (with many more to be showcased) is this post and many more to come over the next few Saturdays. Sadly I'm not very proficient when it comes to making videos so will have to do it the old fashioned way; with photos and lists etc. I will post every Saturday starting today with a post showcasing some of the books on my kindle; technically not on a bookshelf but there's just so much stuff on there! So today I'm going to show off some of my collections on my kindle (I like organisation!). I keep my little kindle that I absolutely love in a nice red case as I'm very clumsy and it keeps it safe and sound. Since having my kindle at the beginning of the year I have around 100 books, 49 review books/netgalley, 18 samples and two magazines that I subscribe too. Next week I'll showcase all my review copies on my kindle, netgalley books etc.

  1. Just dropping by :) saw this kindle book on an email I got and cause I know you love LOTR wondered if it would be of any interest :)


  2. Thanks m'love :) I've sent for a sample and added it to my wishlist. Thanks for the heads up!

  3. Yay! I'd never thought about a Kindle tour - this is a really good idea. Unfortunately, my Kindle is so packed, that I don't think I'd be able to do it :P

    Looking at your list, I loved Earth Girl by Janet Edwards - I read it earlier this month, and it was incredible.
    I really liked Cinder too!
    Also, Keary Taylor is an awesome author. I'm yet to read Eden, but I have it. Have you read her angels series? I've read Branded (it was one of the first eBooks I ever read), and it was excellent.

    Looking forward to more of these posts :)
