Flash! Incredible newly Kindleized backlist titles
This is what we’ve been wanting! Well, it’s some of it.
These are coming from the Wylie Agency, which is a literary agency, in a special unified look series called Odyssey Editions.
These titles are EXCLUSIVE to the Kindle store…take that, iBooks, Borders, and B&N!
I was really pleased to see that they haven’t blocked the text-to-speech!
Are these important books?
Especially the Rabbit books from John Updike, but that’s certainly not all. Lolita, Brideshead Revisited, The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, Portnoy’s Complaint, Love Medicine…these are exclusive in e-book to the Kindle store!
Here, I’ve got to give you the whole list:
London Fields by Martin Amis
The Adventures of Augie March by Saul Bellow
Ficciones (in Spanish) by Jorge Luis Borges
Junky by William S. Burroughs
Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison
Love Medicine by Louse Erdrich
The Enigma of Arrival by V.S. Naipaul
The White Castle by Orham Pamuk
Midnight’s Children by Salman Rushdie
The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat by Oliver Sacks
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas by Hunter S. Thompson
Rabbit Redux by John Updike
Rabbit at Rest by John Updike
Rabbit is Rich by John Updike
Rabbit, Run by John Updike
Brideshead Revisited by Evelyn Waugh
How about them e-books, hm?
These are all $9.99 right now, but some others from this publisher (not part of this special series) can be more expensive…I wouldn’t be surprised if these go up in price later, but that’s just speculation.
