For the electronic bookworms Amazon is offering $9.99/book for some great current book titles with free wireless delivery. That's a lot cheaper than the hardbacks.
Here are the titles:
Just After Sunset
by Stephen King
Call it dusk, call it twilight, it's a time when human intercourse takes on an unnatural cast, when nothing is quite as it appears, when the imagination begins to reach for shadows as they dissipate to darkness and living daylight can be scared right out of you. It's the perfect time for Stephen King.
American Lion: Andrew Jackson in the White House
by Jon Meacham
Andrew Jackson, his intimate circle of friends, and his tumultuous times are at the heart of this remarkable book about the man who rose from nothing to create the modern presidency. Acclaimed author Jon Meacham goes inside his White House, and drawing on newly discovered family letters and papers, he details the human drama--the family, the women, and the inner circle of advisers--that shaped Jackson's private world through years of storm and victory.
by Toni Morrison
A Mercy reveals what lies beneath the surface of slavery. But at its heart it is the ambivalent, disturbing story of a mother who casts off her daughter in order to save her, and of a daughter who may never exorcise that abandonment. Acts of mercy may have unforeseen consequences.
