you know you can get most of these books free from the library as ebooks on kindle? You check out online, and check back in when done read. Maybe you know this already, but just in case. I read ..kite runner..that way a while back.
TI, as I understand it, if you've purchased the printed edition of a book from Amazon, you can also download the electronic edition free. I haven't taken advantage of this offer yet. Thanks for the reminder.
