I’d also really like it if they were sorted into categories. If I fancy a sci-fi I can click that and it will show all of those in my library.
Preferably in some kind of order. Not sure what though
It is a bit more faff but you can set up categories yourself. I have ‘sci-fi’ ‘fantasy’, ‘horror’ etc etc all set up on my kindle account then when I get a new book I go straight onto the kindle app and manually add it to those categories.
It does mean a little bit of work but I quite like having control over what I tag things as (also it lets you tag things in multiple categories so it can be in ‘horror’, ‘sci-fi’ ‘novels’ at the same time. I might even start a ‘rated on DiS’ category now I think about it…)
I’ve got so many unread books on my Kindle now. I know that I’ll never read a huge chunk of them because they were bought on a whim, rather than actually being things I want to read. Take this recommendation (no idea why it was recommended to me) for example. It looks horrendous, absolute pure trash, but I thought I’d buy it for “a laugh”. Well, who’s laughing now? Big Kindle, that’s who!
A 4.29 rating, I’m hoofin’ over to Amazon right now!
I’m currently reading something and have no idea how it ended up on my kindle. And its quite boring. How did it end up there. A reccomendation? A hunch? I liked the cover? I guess we’ll never know.
Notes On An Execution - Danya Kukafka
Daily deal. Undecided if I want to buy or read it though. Will maybe check out the first few pages to see.
It’s very good.
YMMV on that one
Sea of Rust - C. Robert Cargill
Shortlisted for the Arthur C Clark award in 2018. “The post-apocalyptic science fiction epic about AI and what makes us human” - 99p
Never heard of it
bought it in January, either haven’t read it or have read it and have no memory of it
I read it and really enjoyed it. Fast-paced post-apocalyptic romp with anthropomorphised robots. Good stuff
Sebastian Barry - Days Without End
I’ve bought another 99p book of his, but not read. Guess I should add this to the pile. Seems like a couple of Dissers liked it.
Ahh i loved that book. One of my favourites by him.
Sally Rooney - Beautiful World, Where Are You
Reach for the Stars: 1996-2006: Fame, Fallout and Pop’s Final Party:
Freebie alert (pdf though)
Been wanting to read this for ages
Ooooo another (think you have to make an account to borrow it)
Had these swampy essays on my list for ages but has been out of print
I Who Have Never Known Men
Loved this book when I read it last year.
I hated it
