Recycling Wednesday: Lingering on An iPad

*I am totally recycling this from my book blog "What's on the Bookshelf?" Sorry...been too busy to write much this week!

OK.  So we did it.
My hubby has been pushing me to get a Kindle, or Nook, or something for awhile, telling me how un-environmentally friendly my reading habit is.  (Although 99% of my books come from the library...)  Think he just wanted this...

Yep, we got an iPad!
He's trying to tell me it was for my reading, but think he just wanted me to quit yelling at him for playing games on his iPhone at night. 

Anyway,
I have to admit I love it.  I didn't think I would.  I'm a bibliophile and love the smell of a stinky old book.  But this means I don't have to juggle booklights under the covers.   I don't like the Apple Reader application very much.  Books seem expensive and they don't have a huge selection that I could see.  We linked into the Kindle app and realized it is AWESOME!   I read Linger, the second in the Wolves of Mercy Falls series the first night he got it.  I've already downloaded The Tide Knot and started on it.  Something to be said for impatience.  

Linger was great too.  It was darker than the first, dealing with characters infused with self-loathing and other various mental issues, and some rock stars thrown in.  The love story gets more complicated than Shiver, with Graces' parents finally getting involved in her life (sort of.)  I was surprised at the ending, but remember there is one more book, so guess she had to let us linger (ha! Makes me think of that Cranberries' song...)
