Right now I'm thinking "Name of the Wind" by Patrick Rothfuss - I am longing to read it again, and I think it would be a great starting point.
Yes, I obsess about weird things - like my first ebook. I'm sure my husband could give you an entertaining list.
This got me wondering - what was the first book you read in ebook format, and was there a reason you picked that book? OK - asking the reason is a bit strange, I know.
Yes. One of the things that pushed me over the edge to purchase my first ebook reader was the free availability of so many classics which are on my to-read list for ages.
I'm actually having some fuzzzies, but I believe it was D.H. Lawerence's Sons and Lovers.
