If you prefer reading on a tablet rather than an e-reader, you may want a Kindle Fire HD.

Prime Day slashes the price by 33%:
$99 instead of $149.


For Audio Book Fans: The Amazon Echo and Echo Dot

These smart devices can do so many things (play music, control the lights in your house, remind you to do things, save and add to your shopping list, and on and on), but one of the favorite things to do with them in our house is listen to Audible audio books.

The Echo remembers where in the book you are on your phone, so you can switch devices and stay in the same spot. You can tell it to stop in thirty minutes as your drift off to sleep, or you can increase the volume, back up thirty seconds, and more.

Prime Day sales: 
Echo Dot (not as powerful speakers) for only $29
That's 40% off. 
(Echo Dots usually retail for about $50, about the same as a Google Home Mini.)

Get the Echo Generation 2 for $69.
That's less than half of what our first Echo cost, and it's 30% off the current retail price!

Andrew Carnegie's Maid, by Marie Benedict

From the author of The Other Einstein, the mesmerizing tale of what kind of woman could have inspired an American dynasty.

Clara Kelley is not who they think she is. She's not the experienced Irish maid who was hired to work in one of Pittsburgh's grandest households. She's a poor farmer's daughter with nowhere to go and nothing in her pockets. But the other woman with the same name has vanished, and pretending to be her just might get Clara some money to send back home.
