    new to the book game

    Advertisements
    i just bought a kindle fire, and when it comes to finding a book i wanna read its hard. i feel weird saying this, but i like books about drugs, abuse, etc. what category are those books under? or better yet, do you have any book recommendations? i like the juicy stuff, not so much the slow moving books

    I'm not sure of the genre but I really liked Scar Tissue by Anthony Kiedis.

    .... this is just me but on my kindle i like to find the free/cheap books that I'd never read if it wasn't for my kindle.
    One thing i do is look up a book i like and then look through the similar books.

    I would look in the teen section.
    Also, you can check your library's website to see the books/genres that they offer to e-readers.
    And there's this website: What Should I Read Next? Book recommendations from readers like you
