These are items currently, and possibly for only a short time, in Kindle format for two bucks.
This is a mixture of books that I either thought you would already know about and want, or maybe didn’t know about but should.
Note: The first Inconvenient Truth was essentially a documentary made by Al Gore, about global warming. The second one is really a documentary made about Al Gore, and also about global warming. A not too subtle difference, when you think about it. Anyway, the book that goes with the movie is two bucks in Kindle form, and the book is by Al Gore, not about Al Gore. Just to complicate things.
Bloodline (Star Wars) by Claudia Gray is one of those afeter market Star Wars novels, good ratings and reviews.
A fun language related book, and we all love those: You’re Saying It Wrong: A Pronunciation Guide to the 150 Most Commonly Mispronounced Words–and Their Tangled Histories of Misuse.
I have no idea why they didn’t title it “Your saying it wrong.” Anyway, the description:
For word nerds and grammar geeks, a witty guide to the most commonly mispronounced words, along with their correct pronunciations and pithy forays into their fascinating etymologies and histories of use and misuse.
With wit and good humor, this handy little book not only saves us from sticky linguistic situations but also provides fascinating cocktail-party-ready anecdotes. Entries reveal how to pronounce boatswain like an old salt on the deck of a ship, trompe l’oeil like a bona fide art expert, and haricot vert like a foodie, while arming us with the knowledge of why certain words are correctly pronounced the “slangy” way (they came about before dictionaries), what stalks of grain have to do with pronunciation, and more. With bonus sidebars like “How to Sound like a Seasoned Traveler” and “How to Sound Cultured,” readers will be able to speak about foreign foods and places, fashion, philosophy, and literature with authority.
You all know the book, “Things Fall Apart” This is just book one of the trilogy, but just in case you want a Kindle version of that, this is it.
