The Kindle Nation
WEEKENDER

January 2, 2012  

 

35 months ago today we sent out our  first newsletter to just over 1,000 readers. We've grown since then to over 22,000 newsletter readers, 42,000 Facebook fans and a website that ranks in the top 7,000 in the US in "traffic" - a word which usually means bad things, exceptwhen it refers to the way our readers are counted.

 

All of this is possible because of two wonderful groups of people -- you our readers, and the authors and publishers who sponsor the Kindle Nation Daily website, and this newsletter. Our job is to help readers and writers connect with each other, and you make it all worthwhile. Thank you.

So Happy New Year, and we look forward to visiting with you each week during 2012!

Hooked: A Thriller
Just 99 Cents


by Ruth and Michael Harris   
   
HOOKED is a story of sex, greed, ambition, murder, revenge and assassination - and of a gifted doctor from a small town in Kentucky. With a contemporary feel, the novel takes place in the mid-20th century when America was at the pinnacle of its power and prestige. Set in New York and Washington, a remote fishing village on the Turkish Riviera, Sweden, Vienna, Cairo and aboard Lydia, the world's most beautiful yacht, the story centers on Gavin Jenkins, the brilliant, charismatic Dr. FeelGood.

"Sex, greed, ambition and murder - what's not to like? It's great to see NYT bestselling author, Ruth Harris and Michael Harris move into the thriller genre with this cracking debut."
-Mark Chisnell, author of The Defector

Here's the set-up:

Dr. Jenkins' miracle treatments give patients everything they want:  youth, beauty, radiant vitality and sexual potency.  No wonder he is worshiped by the celebrities who become his patients.  No wonder his influence runs from the private island of an enigmatic Turkish billionaire with a bloody secret to the crimson-draped bedroom of a depraved, Mid-eastern Prince;  from the private dressing rooms of world-famous artists to the heights of international society and the inner sanctums of the White House itself.

One Reviewer Notes:

"Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the operating theatre... NYT best-selling author Ruth Harris and Michael Harris take on the medical-political thriller. Sleepless nights ahead for Daniel Silva and Tess Gerritsen as their crowns are threatened. "

Mark Williams, co-author of Sugar and Spice

Fewer Students Buying Textbooks Does Not Make a Bright Future for Publishers 

December 29, 2011
 

I came across a survey today from the University of California-Riverside (PDF). Like most colleges, UC Riverside has a survey every year where they ask their students any number of questions about their experiences at the school. In this case, I'm really only interested in the results that show a growing number of students...
