Five for Friday: iLibrary

I haven’t done a “five for friday” post in a while, but I’m between books at the moment and was in the mood, especially as I’m still kind of thinking I want a Kindle for my birthday. As you know, if you read this blog regularly, I’m not entirely opposed to ebooks, and even own a few. In fact, since the Kindle app works on my phone and my PC, I consider having a few ebooks the booklover’s equivalent of an iphone or ipad warranty, in that owning a few guarantees that as long as I have my phone or computer, I ALWAYS have something to read.

So, what’s in my iLibrary? In this edition of Five for Friday, I’ll share a few titles:

  1. The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake, by Amy Bender. Actually, I only have the free sample of this so far; if I like it, I might get the rest while I’m at the hair salon tomorrow, or I might wait and get it in hardcover. (Don’t you just love the title?
  2. Tarzan of the Apes, by Edgar Rice Burroughs. It came free with an eReader app, and honestly, I’ve meant to read it for years, and never have.
  3. The Last of the Mohicans, by James Fenimore Cooper. My aunt’s book has an interview with the surviving members of these Native Americans, and it made me realize I hadn’t read this since grade school, so I downloaded it, in case the mood ever struck.
  4. Julie & Julia: 365 Days, 524 Recipes, 1 Tiny Apartment Kitchen, by Julie Powell. I first read this in hardcover just after it originally came out, LONG before the movie was made, and a few months ago, knowing I was about to spend a long time queued for a hot new movie, I downloaded it to read at the theater. It’s one of my “comfort books.”
  5. The New Oxford American Dictionary. Because dictionaries are cool.
