    Downloading the app now, although I thought of a second problem. I'm not sure how many are in my actual Kindle library as opposed to directly downloaded onto it from files.

    :(

    I just finished The Left Hand of Darkness earlier today, after putting her SF off for far too long. :(

    I want to reread those so badly. I read them when I was 13, and they were the first fantasy books I read after reading WoT, and that I picked up on my own without my friends nagging me to read it. For years I couldn't remember the names of the books, the author, or the series, and it wasn't until employing a lot of google fu that I was able to figure it out.

    Sorry for getting back to you a little late. I’m switching between a few books right now because of school and stuff so I haven’t had as much time to read as it as I would like. It’s relatively short so I’ll knock it out soon but right now it’s pretty awesome! I’ll certainly get back to you with my final impressions for sure though. What about you?

    Oh, I'll have to give that one a read. I watched the movie recently. I loved it so much! The animation was gorgeous, the story was exciting, and I love when anime delves into Japanese culture and mythology with a slice of life feel.

    I need to narrow down my reading list a bit. Got a bit of manga to catch up on. Heehee.

    It did, it did. ^^ Was Mitsuha's grandmother featured in the book? She was really fascinating...

    Yes she was there as a side character not a viewpoint. It was basically a more in depth Taki, the little sister and the father (who strangely comes off as less of an arse because of this).

    I'll definitely have to pick it up, then. I liked the characters in it a lot. I've been considering picking up the manga too.

    As far as what I'm *actually* reading...it's manga. lol

    I've been reading Yona of the Dawn. I love the story, and I like that it's a character-driven shojo...those are hard to find.

    I just finished 'The Help'. Liked it and the movie stuck to the story pretty closely.

    I'm reading 'Keep the aspidistra flying' by Orwell now, liking it so far. Although all talk talk of old (pre-decimalisation) money is a bit confusing for me.
