Kink Your Kindle: Now For Android

by Violet Blue on June 28, 2010

With the great news that the Amazon Kindle is now cheaper and that it’s now available for Android FREE, I updated my VB List: Favorite Things widget to be a Kink Your Kindle feature. It’s a great excuse for me to showcase more sex books for the Kindle, and especially ones I think you might not know are available. I was disappointed that I couldn’t add Janine Ashbless‘ book Dark Enchantment to the widget, as she’s one of the hands-down masters of erotic writing — most especially with fantasy flavors, fetish accessories and vampiric themes. Normally I dislike erotica with these themes and find it so cheesy I can’t get away fast enough. Yet when I read her first collection Cruel Enchantment I couldn’t get enough. If you like geeky nerdy things that live in the fantasy/horror twilight *and* explicit sex that is somehow believable and unpredictable, you’ll love her collections as much as I do.

Other books featured on my highly-recommended “Kink Your Kindle” erotic books list:

Fast Girls: Erotica for Women Editor Rachel Kramer Bussel‘s scorching anthology from many hot authors, all about women living out their raciest sexual fantasies.

Lucky 13: Thirteen Tales of Getting Lucky Author Sommer Marsden is a writer I consider to be one of the top storytellers in the erotica genre, and she’s just getting started. She is one I’m watching closely. This collection is 13 of her hits, and highly recommended.

Opening Up: A Guide to Creating and Sustaining Open Relationships Author Tristan Taormino is a legendary sex educator who is hip, savvy and understands the real questions people have about sex. Here, she’s researched tirelessly and written what is essentially the “bible” for non-monogamy. A must-have.

And two top picks from my catalog: Sweet Love: Erotic Fantasies for Couples (anthology) because it recently won the Gold medal for erotica 2010 at the IPPY’s, and a book I’m especially wishing every girl could have, The Smart Girl’s Guide to the G-Spot. When I give that book to friends, they really thank me. Like, a lot. It’s a quiet winner.

If you’re mobile and want the free Kindle app for your Android, just scan this onscreen QR code with your phone:

I second everything you said about Janine Ashbless! Her story is always my favorite in any collection. :-)

In case anyone is wondering, Amazon is totally freaking out and crashing today.

Waaaaaah!!!!

Thank you Violet! I am honoured and proud, and when I can stop gaping like a goldfish I will be grinning from ear to ear!

No, why buy a Kindle? Read on your EVO or your MacBook. Most Amazon eBooks are in color, which you won’t see on a b/w eInk display.

While we’re on the subject, I heard a rumor that adult magazines in the Zinio format are blocked in the iPad and/or iPhone Zinio apps, courtesy of Apple. Do you know if this censorship is real? Thx!
