This summer, it's time to get your e-book on! And as much as we all love the feel of a good book in our hands and that new book smell (or maybe that's just me?) downloading a book is just easier. And faster. And simpler. And doesn't take up any space in our luggage when we travel! Not to mention, they're often sold at bargain prices (like the ones on this list!) So this summer whether you're going on a vacay or a staycay, here's a list of entertaining e-books that you should download-stat!


Disclaimer: There's some shameless self promotion involved because *cough* my second that I co-wrote with Liz Fenton, The D Word is on this list! But hey, what can I say? I want y'all to read it! Because I care what you think. And there's an exciting contest involved too. Head over to Chick Lit Is Not Dead-after you read this article- for the deets!

About Unabashedly Bookish: The BN Community Blog
Unabashedly Bookish features new articles every day from the Book Clubs staff, guest authors, and friends on hot topics in the world of books, language, writing, and publishing. From trends in the publishing business to updates on genre fiction fan communities, from fun lessons on grammar to reflections on literature in our personal lives, this blog is the best source for your daily dose of all things bookish.


Since 1997, you’ve been coming to to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.
