    I'm about half way through Catch-22 by Joseph Heller. It's really good if you like satires, or war historical fiction (if that's a genre). It's really funny in it's own sardonic way...lol. Definitely should check it out!

It lets you convert files to the correct format for use on the Kindle.
    A former roomate of mine had one and I borrowed it to read the first hunger games, I agree its not the exact same as a book but I actually enjoyed it, I felt like like I read it faster without having to turn the pages too. The biggest problem is I live in a town to small for a bookstore (except a religious one) and out library hasnt had any funding for new books for a couple of years now, and when I want to read its an impulse I hate having to wait for the books to be shipped in, so an e-reader seems like the best solution for me.

    Inheritance Cycle is AMAZING!!! when does the 4th come out do you know??

    OT: Also The Bartholomew trilogy is pretty good but its been awhile since I read so these were all book I enjoied years ago
    Redwall series by Brian Jacques
    Hunger games was alright but I found alot of grammatical errors in it and that kind of distracted me from enjoing it as much but overall pretty good series.

    EDIT: Also Heir Apparent is a book about someone who is stuck in a video games and has to play with a limited number of lives...pretty cool and I feel like alot of people from this forum would like it.

    I love all of these!!!...besides HP lol
