Hi again guys, and it’s Thursday! This means that today we’ll be Thursday Threes and today’s theme is three books on my digital bookshelf. As many of my friends and coworkers know, I have so many books! So many! And not just on my physical bookshelf, on my digital shelf as well. So here’s three of my oldest digital books!
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
This was the very first digital book I ever got. My first e-reader device was an old style Nook from Barnes and Noble and I remember opening that for Christmas and being so excited. I was in college by this time and I wanted a way to bring a lot of books with me to my classes (to read in my down time) without the actual books taking up space in my crowded backpack so this was a godsend. Pride and Prejudice, if I remember correctly, was a free download that Barnes and Noble/Nook gave to me to get my library started and I did actually read it.
Elantris by Brandon Sanderson
At this point in time, I had at least the Mistborn series bought in physical copy and I was already falling in love with Brandon Sanderson’s writing style and I wanted to own another with taking up more space because college. So, I bought Elantris and it is such a good book! Loved it so much!
The Heretic Queen by Michelle Moran
When I was in college, I was reading all the time and I was very much into books about queens and especially Egyptian queens. This book caught my attention and I was interested to hear more about Nefertari who is the niece of Nefertiti. She marries Ramesses, the Pharaoh from the Book of Exodus in the Holy Bible. I need to reread this book…
So, these are the three oldest books I have in my digital bookshelf as they were in my Nook app which is my oldest e-reader device thought I just use the app on my iPad now. Same with the Kindle app, I’ll have to go through all of my digital books on both apps more thoroughly at some point. I may need to do a shelf tour.
What are some of your oldest digital books? Why did you buy them? Comment below and let me know!
