What's that on my computer!
I confess I'm reading an e-book, Sukkwan Island by David Vann, and it came from Amazon. I have issues with Amazon's policies. But since this e-book was free, I figured they can't benefit from it. The material seemed interesting as well. A teenager and his father uproot their lives to live on a secluded island in Alaska. So far I'm thinking why would someone want to do that? Fending for yourself amongst the elements, fishing, hunting, gathering wood and....having to use an outhouse! I'm a city girl, and just can't imagine doing those things long term. Maybe for a vacation, but that's it.
E-reading is a new experience for me. I don't really like e-reading. To me reading was already a simple enough task before it went high-tech. While reading this book, I want to flip the pages but I can't. The glare from the computer just isn't my cup of tea. I'm a person who likes a physical book. I enjoy flipping the pages. What about everyone else?
The book is available for a free download until Jan. 25 from the following sites:
It is also available in the iBookstore for Apple products, and should be available for the Nook shortly.
Notes: I'm still looking for takers for my What's Up Tweeps?! feature. I'm extending the giveaway for Delirious by Daniel Palmer until Jan. 25. I was mistaken on the date of publication, it is Jan. 25 not Jan. 11. Take a look at the tabs at the top of the page for details on both. Plus I hope to have a review of The Secret Life of Sandrina M. up by the end of the week! Happy reading!
