Book Advice

Hi New to this forum and also new to Kindle. I only have it on my PC at the minute as wanted to find out if I would use it. It looks as if I will but browsing though up to now I havent found anything that rings a bell with me.

Can anyone recomend some titles, I like a Family Sage that carries on to other books like a serial.

Looking forward to staying with this site


Thanks Ann

Sounds like you're looking for book recommendations? Do you prefer any genres?

I've been speeding through all the Robin Hobb series right now, which are fantasy. I started with the Assassin's Apprentice book (Farseer Trilogy), then moved to the Liveship Traders trilogy, then the Tawny Man trilogy. Next up is the Rain Wilds trilogy (two books currently published).

Welcome. Always nice to meet from new members.
Here a couple of fun sites that might help you find something that suits your taste in reading.
http://www.literature-map.com/ At this site, enter the name of an author who you like and it will "map" the names authors who write in similar fashion.

http://fantasticfiction.co.uk This site can give you the complete list of works of any author and I particularly like the section at the end of each authors works that points you to authors they respect and recommend.

Cheers

A family sage? Sorry, I don't understand what you mean by that.

Good to have your company, Coxan. You'll soon find your way around ebook sources ... and it'll change your world for the better. There are worse places to start than right here at MobileRead's own free library of classics and other public domain work -- all beautifully prepared by generous and hard-working MR members. Best wishes. Neil

Neil neglected to say that his own publishing house, BeWrite, has a three book series (that surely seems like a family saga to me) written by Jenny Telfer Chaplin. They are available in multiple formats, including Mobi for Kindle. All have the word "Candleriggs" in the title.

Hi Thanks to all for the advice, Sorry Harry T about my spelling mistake will take more care next time I post. I will look around as advised and will come back for further advice if needed.

Saga stories are usually about families and carry on from 1 book to another telling all about their lives. thanks again will now look through this forum as there seems lots of interest in Ebooks as I said new to this so lots to learn

Ann
