Sunday Salon: E-Books for Charity

The Sunday Salon.comWelcome to the Sunday Salon. Click on the logo to join in!

I have on my side bar, two e-Books available on Kindle and Nook and others, one to benefit the Japan Relief Fund sponsored by a group from Southern California and the other to benefit cancer research. I've bought both books on my Kindle!

The short stories on Shaken which benefit the Japanese typhoon and earthquake victims are really good! I've read about 6 of the stories so far. Several of them are about travel in Japan, Japanese poets, and the history of Japanese Americans here in the U.S. Most of the stories are written by well-known mystery writers.

Last week, I reviewed Insatiable by Meg Cabot, Night on Fire by Douglas Corleone, and Island Girl by Lynda Simmons. Reading is sporadic, as the nice summer weather makes reading hard. There is gardening, walking, the outdoors that distract!

What's on your plate this week?


  1. Enjoy your reading! The benefit sounds good!


  2. I actually posted about Shaken today too, along with some other Japan earthquake aid anthologies: Three months later.

    I haven't read any of Shaken yet though so am glad to hear you're enjoying it.

  3. My plate? Exams :(

    But in two weeks - holidays with lots of reading and writing, and hopefully nice weather so I can sit out of doors.

  4. That is such a great way to help with the victims of the tsunami in Japan!


I love getting comments and your thoughts...
