    The first book I would read is Austin Dragons because if I win a Kindle I can start with his first book and work my way through. I do not have a kindle now and I purchase hardcover or paperback books, and I have found that since I do not have a kindle I am missing out on a lot of great books. Thank you for the chance to win a kindle.

    Tough one! Maybe, ‘Patrick; Son of Ireland’ by Stephen Lawhead. It’s in the fantasy/ historical fiction genre. One, because I’m Irish myself and this one slipped under the radar until a conversation with a friends last night. and Two, becasue I love his way of blending fantasy fiction with a historical/mythical basis. Right up my street.

    Oh dear. You don’t ask the easy questions, do you? First e-book I’d buy would likely be An Irresistible Alliance by Stephanie Laurens because I’m still trying to catch up on her Cynster series!

    I would buy A Slow Death: 83 Days of Radiation Sickness by NHK TV Crew. It is a medical, non-fiction story about a man in Japan who is exposed to a fatal dose of radiation in a workplace accident. The book chronicles his inevitable death as all the cells in his body die (as usual) but are not replaced by new cells due to the radiation exposure. So his skin falls off and everything gets pretty gory. Very sad that they kept him alive despite knowing he could not recover. He was fully conscious and in incredible amounts of pain right till the end. But they wanted to detail all the effects of the poisoning. Anyway, it sounds like an intriguing story to me. I’d like to read more about it.

    Honestly, I would need to sit and look. It’s been a long time since I sat and read a book. :/
    But, it’s something I want to start doing again.
    I really like true stories because I’m a realist. I have a hard time watching or reading fantasy type stuff.
    Thank you for the chance. This would be an awesome way to get back into reading.

    I’m a sc-fi, occasionally a fantasy if it’s good. And a mystery person. As far as which book 1st, I’m not really sure

    If I were to win I would request Poldark. I would like the series but if that is not possible then the first book would be good. I have seen the PBS series of Poldark and think it is a great story.

    depends on what already had by then, almost constantly getting in new books in all different genres, except romance don’t like that, my favorite type lately has been space opera type things or something in the ‘odd’/fantasy type genre so maybe a set of something or finish up some set from something that John Logsdon has

    So many to choose from! Either a box set like Curvy Girls Mail Order Brides by Kate Kent, or a part of a series, like Celia Kyle’s dragons of Preor, I think the newest one is called Ivoth. I love paranormal romances and have been looking forward to reading these.
