Shelf Saturday Featuring Laura Lond, Author of My Sparkling Misfortune

We all love our books, and we want them to have the best shelves ever. Also, this is a new way to sort of show off your book collection, along with your funky shelves.

ARGH tried fitting himself in a bookshelf but had a hard time doing it.  Big guy learned his lesson :D

Last week there was no Shelf Saturday, so to make up for that, I'm going to show you something different, this time we're featuring a 'Kindle shelf' and my newest favorite author, Laura Lond, was very happy to share the books on her Kindle for us to check out and drool over :D

Remember Laura Lond?  She's the awesome author of the book, My Sparkling Misfortune, whose main character, the villanous villain, Lord Arkus of Blackriver Castle will be interviewed by none other than ARGH.  Watch out for that here!

Laura also wrote another set of books, The Adventures of Jecosan Tarres trilogy.

What are your most favorite books among those on your Kindle?
The Riyria Revelations fantasy series by Michael J. Sullivan and the Elfhunter trilogy by C.S. Marks. I was very fortunate to have come across these books, they are exactly the type of fantasy I enjoy.

Elfhunter trilogy

How many books are in your collection?
Over forty right now. I’ve only had my Kindle since Christmas. My collection is growing fast though.
What is one unique feature of a Kindle that you are most proud of?
I love how the book is instantly there when I purchase it from Amazon. No shipping, no waiting - just one click, and I can open my Kindle and start reading.
Do you have a reason why you prefer reading on an e-reader than traditional print books?
I actually thought I wouldn’t like an e-reader, I loved paper books so much. But when I tried it, I was sold. It is convenient, easy to use, and I can have hundreds of books in it without cluttering the house. Ebooks are also cheaper, too.


Even though I am more of a print-books person, I agree that nothing beats the convenience that e-books give us.  And yes, it lessens the clutter.

Thank you so much for sharing your Kindle shelf with us, Laura!


Think this is a great idea?  Want to have your shelves featured?  Then fill out this form and ARGH and I will email you for details on how to be a movie star - er, how to be featured on Shelf Saturday :D

  1. This is cool! I also am more of a printed word kind of girl, but I don't doubt that once I get into the instant book action of an e-reader, i might be convinced to become more of an e-reader person.


I just have to tell you, ARGH feeds on awesomeness, so if you can, drop him some awesome here, and I promise to give some awesome back :D

Right now, because of my really busy schedule, I'm cutting back on receiving awards. So until further notice, me and ARGH would not be accepting awards. But thank you for thinking of us, we really appreciate it!
