More about what I've been reading

In early August, I purchased a second-hand Sony PRS 505. It came with a couple of books on it that I want to read before I register it with the Sony store. I've finished reading The Lies of Locke Lamora and I want to read Cryptonomicon by Neal Stephenson. I've downloaded several copyright-free or creative commons books and loaded them onto the Sony, and I'm all set to go with plenty of books to read, regardless of the format.

So, finishing up the statistics from last quarter's reading...

Breakdown by format:

  • Mass-market paperback: 15
  • Trade paperback: 1
  • eBook/Kindle: 17
  • eBook/Sony: 3
  • audio book: 1

Sources for eBooks:

  • Free downloads from Feedbooks: 3
  • Purchased from Amazon: 9
  • Purchased from Fictionwise: 4
  • Free from author: 1
  • Free from TOR: 2
  • Unknown: 1

I read through a couple of series during this quarter. In particular, the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer and the Silent Empire series by Stephen Harper. The Twilight books were all purchased for the Kindle from The Silent Empire books are destined for a swap at BookObsessed.

Speaking of BookObsessed, of the 16 paper books I read this past quarter, ten were offered in swaps or virtual book boxes. Eight were taken and six of those have been mailed and received. Four others are planned to be swapped soon.
