We wouldn't be "Here Be Magic" if we didn't love Tolkien. I could watch Lord of the Rings over and over. And over. While I love the hobbits, Gandalf, Aragorn, and of course, the elves, the Ents hold a special place in my heart.
I guess I'm like them in many ways. I'm slow to anger. But once I'm roused... Yeah, I could tear down the walls of Isengard too! Mess around with my books, and I'm going to be one very grouchy Ent.
Paper books. Ebooks. I don't care -- I read them all. But I love my Kindle and use it more and more every single day. I can read on the elliptical. In line waiting at school. Buy a book at the salon because someone mentioned a new-to-me-author. And yeah, we might be saving some trees if we read more electronic books.
We wouldn't want to rouse the Ents again if we try to cut down their precious trees!
In honor of The Bloodgate Warrior's release August 6 from Carina Press, I'm offering to buy one lucky winner his/her choice of eReader. Want a Nook? A Kindle? Something else? Just make sure the device you ask for will work in your country (I will ship internationally). Details about how to enter are on my blog, but comments on this post will get you an entry!
So tell me, what's the best ebook you've read this year? For me, it's Heat by R. Lee Smith.
And if you're looking for a free read to send to your device, I'm offering Bloodgate as a free prequel to showcase the underlying Maya mythology in the other books.
