  • A great post, as I wasn’t aware of “International Read A Book Day” this Friday. I really like my new Kindle, and I think I will go with Emma Cline’s new novel — “The Girls” if it’s available — if not, some other literary wonder.

    Thanks for posting the websites too.

  • Sidenote: My favorite YA author (Francesca Lia Block) liked my #eBookLove pic on Instagram. So I’m feeling EXTRA today. -Francesca
