If you don’t feel up to getting out in the heat very often, you may want to check out our Kindle. You don’t have to make so many trips because we’ve purchased recent selections on the best seller list and put them on the Kindle. It’s like having a mini-library. Currently, you can read these titles: The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, Mockingjay (all by Suzanne Collins), The Lucky One (Nicholas Sparks), The Witness (Nora Roberts), Gone Girl (Gillian Flynn), Explosive Eighteen (Janet Evanovich), Tuesday’s Child (Fern Michaels), Force of Nature (C. J. Box), and The Storm (Clive Cussler), Soul Music: The Pulse of Race and Music (Candace Allen). You don’t have to do anything but take it home and enjoy these great titles!
