So the Xoom came with a few books. I definetly wanna buy a few books every now and then, so I figured I see if anyone else was planning to buy or if they already have gotten any books.

Does anyone have books they've already gotten?
How about book suggestions for other people looking for a good read?

I am using the kindle app instead of Google books but a good book is still good regardless of the app. I am currently reading Tom Claccy's Dead or Alive for the second time. I also just finished I Am Number Four. I wanted to read the book before I went to see the movie.

Agreed. Reading is reading. If you prefer that. Cool. I'm gonna have to take a look at Dead or Alive. How was I Am Number Four?

I like Dean koontz but, only downloaded one of his books so far.

Live2ride883, how does your Kindle app function? Does it seem kind of choppy? If so, do you know of any way to improve this? I originally purchased my books on Amazon Kindle on my but, the books they give you with the app are choppy also on the Xoom. I've had to force close the app a few times also.

I am number four isn't too bad, although it seems like there are about 4-5 chapters missing in the middle and maybe 1-2 at the end.I am hoping for a part 2 at least.

The kindle app runs fine for me, although I am in my mid 40's so a font larger or 2 wouldn't be a bad thing in my opinion

I don't have a xoom yet. I was this close to pulling the trigger today. I may well go pull it tomorrow, I have someone interested in getting my galaxy tab for $325 so, that should put the xoom in my range. But I use kindle on my tab now. I don't know if you have ever read the Dark Tower series from Stephen King. Im on the third book now and can barely put it down. Very interesting series. Also if you are a star wars fan, there is a free series on the kindle market called the Lost Tribe of the Sith.

That's cool I'm glad it works for you. I'm in my early forties, the font size is ok fo me but, I know what you mean.

I have all seven of the dark tower series for my kindle, I also have the free star wars books. Have you checked out the sword of truth books by terry goodkind.

I would like to see the highlander book from the first movie on the kindle. Xanth series by Piers Anthony would also be interesting to read again.
