This choice of July's Kindle First may just be a winner ...

The Sky Below: A True Story of Summits, Space, and Speed [Kindle in Motion] - Scott Parazynski, Susy Flory

Well, the husband — who is absolutely almost never a reader of fiction (meaning he can read but just doesn't for fun) — saw the spacesuit helmet cover on The Sky Below (I downloaded to the fire to checkout the Kindle motion features and all the video added).

 

He has been engrossed and even sometimes chortling ever since. He is actually frustrated that I won't talk about the book with him because haven't read yet or been in mood to start a memoir.

 

So, it may be a damn good book or it may be a damn good book just for old men.  It's definitely a kindle first getting read rather than just downloaded while free.
