13 eBooks to Put On Your Brand New Kindle

By some estimates, more than one million Amazon Kindles were given as gifts today. I got a new Amazon Kindle 3 a few months ago and love it. (I unbox it here, chronicle my experience after a month here, and compare it to other e-readers here.)

But now, what do you put on it? So many books, so little time. Seth Godin created a terrific little Squidoo page with his list of favorite books. I thought I would offer a “baker’s dozen” of my favorites here. These are in alphabetical order:

  1. Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy by Eric Metaxas
  2. Decision Points by George W. Bush
  3. Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear by Max Lucado
  4. Heaven is for Real: A Little Boy’s Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back by Todd Burpo
  5. The Hole in Our Gospel: What Does God Expect of Us? The Answer That Changed My Life and Might Just Change the World by Richard Stearns
  6. Holy Bible, New King James Version
  7. Jesus Calling by Sarah Young
  8. Linchpin: Are You Indispensable? by Seth Godin
  9. Love & Respect: The Love She Most Desires; The Respect He Desperately Needs by Emerson Eggerichs
  10. A Million Miles in a Thousand Years by Donald Miller
  11. The Noticer: Sometimes, All a Person Needs Is a Little Perspective by Andy Andrews
  12. Outlive Your Life: You Were Made to Make A Difference by Max Lucado
  13. Same Kind of Different As Me: A Modern-Day Slave, an International Art Dealer, and the Unlikely Woman Who Bound Them Together by Ron Hall and Denver Moore

The great thing about the Kindle—and also the dangerous thing!—is that you can download a sample, start reading the book, and then decide you want to buy it. All you have to do is click the “buy” button. Go ahead. Give it a try!
