Summer Reading List

I have amazing memories of summers spent on vacations, relaxing by the pool, sneaking in a half hour to read every now and then. In fact, the majority of my summers can be matched with the books I read and where I was as I read each book. This summer will be no different.

Why the Kindle prices?

Amazon Kindle prices are, in many cases, exceptionally less than cover prices (hard- and paperback). With the least expensive price of a Kindle being only $69, you’ll more than save money this summer if you purchase a Kindle and books at the lower Kindle price. In this example, I calculated the cost of 8 of the books on this list: Kindle and paper or hard cover copies, as prices were listed at Amazon on June 22, 2014. The savings is nearly $75 if you have a Kindle account.

    I love the Kindle Paperwhite and I’d love not having to share any more! Thanks for the reading list also (like my list needed to be any longer!)

    Thanks for the reading list suggestion, and the price comparisons! I usually check my local library before buying though because free is the cheapest of all!
