I just have a standard e-ink Kindle (the old one with the keyboard!) so I’d personally suggest the Kindle or Kindle Paperwhite, but I expect the e-ink Nooks are just as good too.

Hi, I've followed your blog for some time and I always enjoy seeing your recommendations and I was wondering if you could suggest any gay literature, I've never read any except for Allen Ginsberg poems and was wondering what you thought would be a good starting point as the subject is personal and interesting to me.

Thanks so much! I haven’t read many I’m afraid (and the ones I have read are YA), but I really enjoyed David Levithan’s Two Boys Kissing and I own a copy of The Miseducation of Cameron Post.

Hey! So glad I came across your blog, because I think I'm in love :P I'd like to ask you, do you know any books with a summer-ish feel to it? Something contemporary, of going on a summer vacation and first love? Hopefully YA. Nothing soppy though. Thanks in advance

Hey! Thanks so much! I made recent lists of YA contemporary recommendations here and here, but I’d specifically suggest Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour, Rules of Summer, Second Chance Summer, Anna and the French Kiss, Wanderlove, The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight, Geek Girl (but she goes abroad in Model Misfit) and The Probability of Miracles for love + travel.
