Lately, I’ve taken advantage of some Kindle deals to add three books that have been on my TBR list: one popular historical fiction, one modern classic, and one work of nonfiction.
I’ve been wanting to read Richard Yates’ Revolutionary Road for a few years now, but have never managed to get my hands on a copy. Now that I own a digital copy, I can start reading it whenever the mood strikes. I’m sure it’s going to be an emotionally devastating read, but I’ve only heard wonderful things about Yates’ writing.
There are tons of excellent nonfiction eBooks on sale at the moment, and I couldn’t resist downloading Nothing to Envy: Ordinary Lives in North Korea by Barbara Demick. I’ve seen a lot of praise for this book that “follows the lives of six North Koreans over fifteen years.” It’s certainly a timely subject, and I’d like to learn more about this totalitarian regime and the human rights violations that it is committing on a daily basis.
Have you read any of these? What book(s) have you added to your shelf lately?
