What a fantastic article! The recommendations are superb! But I also want to comment on the Books vs Kindle debate. I am a longtime Kindle reader. It saved my life over the course of several years when I spent six months each year in Egypt and another month traveling. No way could I have laid my hands on enough print books to satisfy my cravings! I’m still a devout print-bookaholic, and try to intersperse both in my reading now that I have retired from the job that took me to Egypt. So I believe there is room for both and I become a little annoyed at those who insist on the “purity” of reading only print books.

Thanks for a great article!
