Each month for almost three years, I've started or participated in a monthly poll on the USA Amazon Kindle discussion boards asking people a simple question: what are you reading on your Kindle? I've received some great tips with past monthly polls, finding out what others are reading on their Kindle, and found some "new" authors I generally wouldn't have found using my hunt-and-peck method. While I have certainly enjoyed the "mainstream" author suggestions over the past year, I've also enjoyed a lot of independent authors from each month's poll I never would have heard of previously.
Here's how this works - list a book you are currently reading or just recently read on your Kindle (insert the product link using the little button above the text box in the discussion forum so others can find it), whether you would recommend it, did you get it free, and anything else you would care to share.
I literally just started A Matter of Honor by Jeffrey Archer and, after about 10 page clicks I can't tell you much about it except I do enjoy Archer's stuff. Here's to hoping it lives up to his normal high quality.
And here's my standard continuation of each month's request for prior participants in the poll: if you like or dislike a title you have read, in addition to telling us about it in this informal poll, how about writing a book review on the Amazon website? The review will certainly last and be visible a lot longer than this poll will. If you're like me, you look at the customer reviews in order to see if you want to investigate a book further. Since we are all a little community here, and while I realize each review is each person's opinion and we may not like the same thing, I know your friends and online discussion neighbors would appreciate your honest assessment of the likes and dislikes without providing a spoiler - I know I would! Your reviews don't need to be a long dissertation of the book, I like to keep them short, sweet, and (hopefully) to the point.
