Ellen’s Book Bar by Entitle!

It’s been a busy week here at Entitle as we (excitedly) announced the partnership between “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and Entitle!

Ellen’s Book Bar by Entitle is a new place for people to discover great eBooks recommended by America’s favorite talk show host, Ellen DeGeneres. The partnership between “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and Entitle creates a destination for “Ellen’s” audience, viewers, and fans to discover and read interesting books while giving the gift of learning to deserving students across the country.

When you sign up for the club through http://www.ellentv.com/entitle, $2 of each membership will be donated to a scholarship fund to help send deserving students to college.

Each month a new featured book will be recommended and with over 200,000 eBooks, Entitle offers members and viewers the ultimate selection of books by today’s top authors.

Watch Ellen’s Announcement:  Ellen Is Partnering with Entitle Books

Now, we know the rules of any club thanks to Tyler Durden but in this case — we do talk about book club especially when we’re announcing the 1st featured book in Ellen’s Book Bar! During Monday’s show with Amy Poehler, Ellen announced that she selected Amy’s Yes Please as the 1st featured book of the month.

Ellen Announces Yes Please as the 1st Featured Ellen’s Book Bar Pick!

In Amy Poehler’s highly anticipated and hilariously candid first book, Yes Please, Amy offers a collection of stories, thoughts, ideas, lists, and haikus from the mind of one of our most beloved entertainers. Powered by Amy’s charming and hilarious, biting yet wise voice, Yes Please is chock-full of words and wisdom to live by.

A smart, funny, and honest read, you may get a handful of life advice but be warned, you’ll be reading it through tears of laughter. If we can’t be best friends with Amy Poehler, this book at least gives us the next best thing.

Reading more, saving money on great eBooks, and giving back —

now, that’s what we call a winning combination.

Happy reading!

The New York Times: Notable Books of 2014

It’s that time of year again when we start to see those ‘best of’ lists popping up everywhere. It’s a sign that another year has come and gone (too quickly, if we might add) but our favorite ‘best of’ lists are the book lists of course. When we stumble upon a ‘best of’ book list or a notable books of the year list, we do a little somersault (usually by ourselves in a corner hoping no one can see) because those are the kind of lists that give us tons of great books to add to our reading list.

We have a recurring New Year’s resolution to read more (because we don’t think you can ever really read enough) and for us, The New York Times Notable Books of the Year list is one of the first places we look for great reads.

Take a peak at this selection of the NYT editors’ picks for the most notable fiction and nonfiction of 2014. Discover your next favorite novel or completely immerse yourself in a non-fiction book because whatever you choose to read first, you won’t be disappointed.

Fiction:

All The Light We Cannot See

Explore the emotional world of this National Book Award Finalist, from NYT Bestseller Anthony Doerr, about a blind French girl and German boy struggling for both their lives and their souls in WWII-occupied France.

We are not ourselves

In Matthew Thomas’ debut novel, 10 years in the making, an Irish-American family must navigate dreams, disappointment, and regret as this multigenerational story unfolds, heralded as a “masterwork” by Joshua Ferris (Then We Came To The End).

Nora Webster

Take a trip to the small town of 1960s Wexford, Ireland, in this poignant NYT bestselling novel where widow Nora Webster must find a way forward after her husband’s death, raising their four boys as she finds comfort and new life through song.

The Blazing World

Scandal, betrayal, and mystery abound in this acclaimed book about a woman who hires three men to present her art work as their own, only to be betrayed by one of them upon her explosive–and later deadly–reveal.

 Non-fiction:

This Changes Everything

Looking for “the first truly honest book ever written about climate change” (Time)?  Check out Naomi Klein’s account of how the challenges presented by climate change will require us to change everything–including, she argues, our free market economic system.

Short and Tragic Life

In this compelling biography, follow the young, smart, and talented Robert Peace as he navigates two separate worlds: the privileged, insular campus of Yale and the dangerous streets of his 1980s Newark hometown, all catapulting him to a violent and untimely end.

The Invisible Bridge

Pick up acclaimed journalist Rick Perlstein’s latest NYT bestselling presidential history, on the fall of Richard Nixon and the unlikely rise of Ronald Reagan–ushering in a new conservative political culture and vision for America.

Demon Camp

In this gripping true story, writer Jennifer Percy explores the world of soldiers, PTSD, and psychological terror when she heads to a Christian exorcism camp in Georgia that promises to rid soldiers of their demons.  But should we believe in these demons–or their unconventional cure?

Tell us, have you read any of these books yet? Any eBooks that are must reads for your 2015 reading list? Share with us below because the longer our reading list, the happier we are!

Happy reading!

Fall in Love with Our Favorite Fall Reads

It’s October. Wait, we’ll say it again. It is OCTOBER, already. Where has the time gone? But here’s our secret, we’re not complaining because fall is one of our favorite times of the year. We love the changing leaves, the pumpkin spice…everything, crisp fall days followed by cooler fall evenings, and most importantly…it’s the absolute perfect time to curl up with a great read.

We don’t know about you but as leaves fall outside our window and we have a crackling fire in the background, the only thing missing is the perfect book to read, the book that makes you sink deeper into the sofa cushions as that great story wraps around you like a blanket. So, it’s time to trade in those bathing suits for your fall sweaters and fall into one (or as we always say, a few) of these great titles.

We Are Not Ourselves

We Are Not Ourselves: You won’t find any perfect people in this book. An honest and brilliant debut novel that tells the story of 6 generations of an Irish American family. We’re calling it now, this one may be an award contender.

Wayfaring Stranger

Wayfaring Stranger: A tender love story and pulse-pounding thriller that crosses continents and decades of American history. You can just tell you are reading a great story with this new novel by Mr. Burke. You won’t be able to wait to get to the last page, yet you won’t want the book to end. Prepare to pull an all-nighter.

All The Light We Cannot See

All The Light We Cannot See: Yes, we had this book on our summer reads list. But if you haven’t read it yet, it needs to make its way to your fall reads list. You will get lost in the pages of this beautiful instant NYT bestseller about a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II.

A Man Called Ove

A Man Called Ove: Grumpy old man? Everything is not what it seems in this bestselling and delightfully quirky debut novel from Sweden. This feel good novel about the profound impact one life has on countless others takes you on a journey and ultimately shows you that what you see isn’t always what you get.

One Kick

One Kick: This new series brings dark subjects to light written in a way that Chelsea Cain has learned to master. Kick is a compelling and fascinating heroine and the twisty-turn plot in One Kick is a suspenseful page-turner.

Burying Water

Burying Water: The start of another new series, K.A Tucker hits it out of the park with this story. Left for dead in the fields of rural Oregon, imagine waking up with no idea who you are or what happened to you. This heartbreakingly beautiful story about the power of love and the strength and courage that comes from within will leave you eagerly awaiting the next book in this series.

She's Come Undone

She’s Come Undone: We love this book. But what amazes us most is how perfectly Wally Lamb can get inside the head of a 13-year old girl’s head. Dolores is having a tough life – dad left, mom’s got major issues, and Dolores seeks comfort in marshmallows. If we had a nickel….

One For the Money

One For The Money: Ah, the first in the Stephanie Plum series. A gutsy female protagonist you’re sure to love as much as we do.

Gone With the Wind

Gone With the Wind: Sure, it’s a really long book BUT it’s got everything…romance, thrills, and a spoiled young girl who sees the Civil War forever change her way of life. A great American novel that has a place on every reading list.

Dream Catcher

The Dream Catcher: We love J.D. Salinger and wanted to know more about this reclusive writer so we were drawn to this memoir written by his daughter. If you’re a fan like us, you’ll enjoy this very well written memoir. Ms. Salinger decodes some of J.D Salinger’s writing for us and tells a woeful story about growing up as his daughter.

Collide  Pulse

Collide: Love roller coasters and love triangles? Then add this series to your list. Get ready to lock yourself in because you won’t want to put this one down (warning: you may fall in love). Luckily, when you’ve finished the last page, you can devour Pulse, just prepare yourself to fall even more in love with your our new book boyfriend, Gavin. Hey, Gail McHugh, can you (pretty) please write faster?

The Rosie Project

The Rosie Project: Imagine Sheldon Cooper trying to find love….he begins “The Wife Project”….enter quirky barmaid, Rosie. From there an unlikely and hilarious romance ensues. This quirky novel about a logical quest to find love has a lot of heart. We’re not surprised this one is bound for the big screen and we’ll be one of the first in line.

Comeback Love

Comeback Love: Who doesn’t wonder about the one who got away? We love this story of two people who fell in love in the 1960’s and were torn apart by a draft notice only to be reunited years later. We all want this kind of love story, don’t we?

I am Pilgrim

I Am Pilgrim: Another one that was on our summer reads list but since it’s one of our favorite thrillers of the year, it’s making its way onto our fall reads list (hint: read it :-) ). This debut espionage thriller by Terry Hayes depicting the collision course between 2 geniuses, a tortured hero and a determined terrorist, is a page-turner full of shocking twists that may have you up all night but trust us, it’s a good great thing.

Stay tuned for another fall reads blog post with even more great titles to add to your list (we told you fall is one of our favorite times to curl up with a great eBook)!
What have you been reading so far this fall – any titles we should add to our list?
Happy reading and happy fall!

A Memoir to Remember

We all love a great story but these great stories written by ordinary people who have been through extraordinary times have moved us. They stay with us long after we turn the last page and they change us, for the better. They make us stronger and remind us how precious life is and how the world we live in is a place where we are taught real life lessons about love, compassion, tragedy, survival, redemption, and determination.

You may find yourself crying, smiling, or even laughing through chapters of these amazing books but as you are reading these unbelievably powerful stories, we know that the one thing you won’t be able to do is put any of these books down.

A House in the Sky An Invisible Thread Know the Night Brain on Fire The Glass Castle Angela's Ashes I Forgot to Remember Kisses From Katie  Tattoos on the Heart Prepared for a Purpose Thunder Dog Tracks

Cool Off With These Great Summer Reads

We’ve hit the middle of summer. Hot days, warm nights and the perfect time to dive into one of these great reads for a little ‘me time’. Whether you’re on the beach or by the pool, these page-turners transport you to another place and give you a vacation within your vacation. With a mix of romantic novels, humorous stories, thrillers, and modern fiction, here are some must-read titles to toss into your beach bag this summer.

 

Love stories and happily ever afters. But what about the not so happily ever afters and learning to love again. Trusting and learning about yourself, friendships, marriage, sisterhood, and family – these perfect beach reads will have you smiling and possibly shedding a few tears (which we can totally blame on the glare of the sun ;-) )

After I Do All Fall Down I Am Having So Much Fun Here Without You The Summer Girls Beach Colors The Last Anniversary

 

An edge of your “beach chair” espionage thriller depicting the collision course between two geniuses, a tortured hero and a determined terrorist, a mega-stakes, high-suspense race against time to stop a lone killer from blowing up thousands, or a beautiful novel about a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France all come with a warning: you may not be able to put these eBooks down so don’t forget to reapply the sunscreen.

I Am Pilgrim Mr. Mercedes All The Light We Cannot See

 

Tears of laughter!? If you’re looking for the perfect eBook to keep you laughing so hard that you may get a few strange looks from the people next to you, these guaranteed laugh out loud books are definitely ones to add to your reading list.

Hyperbole and a Half Psychos Skipping a Beat

Happy reading :-)

A Series of Great Reads: Part 2

We’re not encouraging low productivity this week but we know posting ‘Part 2 of A Series of Great Reads’ on a Monday could be cause for some serious binge reading behavior (which we totally think is fine – wait, did we say that out loud?) So, heed our warning, you may need to come up with an excuse to take some days off work to finish these great reads because it’s not going to be easy to put them down.

I think we can all agree that it’s an absolutely, horrible, no good very bad day when you finish the last page of a book or the last episode of a series and then you have to wait…and wait…and wait for the next book or episode. Well, we know we kept you in suspense for Part 2 long enough and now we’re kicking off this week with some romance series so that you don’t have to wait any longer because who really has time for that.

Go ahead and fill that summer reading list with these perfect beach reads (although you might want to have a beach towel ready in case these get a little too steamy and you start blushing)! Happy reading and of course, don’t forget the sunscreen!

A Series of Great Reads, Part 1

I know we aren’t the only ones that have finished a book and wished we could just keep on reading because we didn’t want the story to end. You know what we do in those moments? We turn to trilogies and series. Because what’s better than 1 book? 2 books, 3 books….and even better – when we lose count! We don’t mind staying in all weekend and reading 3 books in a day – please tell us you’re one of those people too!

Today, we’re looking at series on Entitle that make us want to give the authors a great big hug and say “thanks” for writing….and then writing even more  :)

Oh, and of course this blog post has 3 parts because what’s better than 1 blog post? A part 2 and 3! Our 1st post features some gripping, utterly entertaining young adult, sci-fi, and fantasy novels that we would binge read again any day. So, if you can’t find us, you know where we’ll be.
