I need your help.
A very sweet and generous friend recently gifted me a Kindle. It’s pretty fabulous. I’ve talked to current and former Lesotho volunteers and they all agree that a loaded Kindle is a great Peace Corps companion. So, I am on the hunt for good books to fill it up with. I made a wish list on Amazon of a few that I’ve always wanted to read or that seemed interesting. (My Pinterest button wasn’t working, boo.) But I am unsure which ones I should take the 11.99 (or more) plunge for or if I am missing some great book on this list.
That is where you come in.
I would like my Facebook friends, Twitter followers, dear blog readers, stalkers, the hobo on the street or anyone to offer their book suggestions. What is your favorite book? What’s the book you read when you are sick? Or happy? Give me your best shot.
The blue text is a link to my Amazon wish list for books. Browse through it, if you feel so inclined, and let me know if there is anything you think I must read or I should delete off the list and never look back.
There are a few that I’ve been aching to read for awhile and will go on the Kindle, regardless of what you all think.
Yes, these are all memoirs, and yes all of these authors have appeared on This American Life. I like what I like.
So, what book (or books) would you take to Africa for two years? Feel free to comment on the blog or Tweet, Facebook, email, skeet or ignore me.
