eBook Deals, or Books I Bought Recently

I've been reading some Vonnegut lately and found out there are a lot of good deals on his books in eBook form. Sorry for being Kindle-specific, these are just the deals I find while feeding my addiction. There's a lot of good conversion software out there if it helps. :)

-The Darkening Dream by Andy Gavin (creator of Crash Bandicoot and Jak & Daxter) ($2.99)
-Crystal Rain by Tobias Buckell ($2.99)
-The Door Into Summer by Robert Heinlein ($2.99)
-Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke ($2.99) - Still a good deal.
-God Bless You Mr. Rosewater by Kurt Vonnegut ($2.99)
-Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut ($3.99) - A favorite of mine.
-Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut ($4.79) - So it goes...
-2BRO2B by Kurt Vonnegut (short story) (Free) - Vonnegut has some of the best short science fiction.

It's kind of sad that I've never read anything by Vonnegut before. Well, with a couple of free short stories, I won't be able to say that for very long!

I tried to read "Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell" a while ago, but had a very hard time getting into it. While the story seemed interesting, I found the prose very dry. Which, in some ways, is a testament to the author's writing, since it was written in the style of the era in which the book takes place, and that's exactly how I find most books from that period. Didn't get a chance to finish it before I had to return it. I hope you enjoy it more than I did.

Yep, you have zero excuse now. :D I actually already read Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell, but it remains one of my all-time favorites. I would recommend the audio version if you can't get through it. The narrator does an amazing job and I think it's easier to get into the whole dry humor and writing thing, not to mention all the footnotes/tangents.
