As we’re getting closer to Christmas, many ladies out there will probably start thinking about which presents would be most suitable for their long suffering partners this year. They’ve probably already got all the tools their sheds can handle, and even though you might want to buy them a new lawn mower, that’s not really a good present is it. So, you need some inspiration I presume?
Well, thanks to the recent explosion in eReaders and the shift that’s currently occurring in the publishing industry, there are some fantastic titles on offer in digital format this year. So long as your man has some kind of tablet device (iPad, Nexus, Kindle etc), he’ll be able to read them with ease at a time that’s convenient for him. With that in mind, here are some of this year’s best selling eBooks currently still available online from most major retailers like Sainsburysebooks.co.uk.
Doctor Sleep by Stephen King
All King fans will have known about this new book for some time, but most don’t realise it’s actually a sequel to his hit novel The Shining. Just as spooky and twice as interesting, Doctor Sleep follows the young boy from the original as he grows up and tackles the working world with his gifts still in tow. Perfect for anyone who loves King, perfect for anyone who loves horror.
Silencer by Andy McNab
From the bestselling author of Bravo Two Zero comes this amazing new title recounting the story of an SAS team who were stationed deep behind enemy lines in 1993. As with all McNabs work, there is some waffling, but the majority of the content is gripping and incredibly true to life.
The Pagan Lord by Bernard Cornwell
This is the latest release from Cornwells Warrior Chronicles series and would suit anyone with an interest in both history and fantasy. Think of it as Lord of the Rings with a little more attitude. You won’t find any characters that resemble the great and powerful Gandalf, but you will encounter numerous Viking battles and enough sorcery to flip a ship.
The Crow Road by Iain Banks
Credited as being one of the most imaginative novels of this generation, this new release from long time respected author Iain Banks has been selling incredibly well on the run up to Christmas. With themes that run into religion, drugs, sex and a whole host of other vice-ridden pastimes, your boyfriend or husband is guaranteed to be glued to it from page 1 to the very end.
The Black Country by Alex Grecian
When some of the residents of a quiet coal-mining village start to go missing in the night, a Scotland Yard murder team is sent to investigate the goings on. After a human eyeball is discovered in a bird’s nest, the experts realise all is not as it seems in the black country – An amazing book that anyone living in the West Midlands, or indeed anywhere else in the UK would love.
Well, that’s about it from me ladies, you should now have some idea about which eBooks would be most appropriate for the men in your lives this Christmas. Some people think reading for a hobby is dying out, but online sales are rising year upon year, so they’re very much mistaken.
Have a great December!
