Learned how to use my Kindle

I read a book to earn this badge: 
I am reading an ebook: Danger in the Shadows by: Dee Henderson
I received a Kindle as a gift, tried to use it once, but got frustrated and left it alone for months. This week I set aside some time to learn how to check out books, read them, highlight them, take notes and how to use the various buttons. While this is an alternate way to read, I still prefer to hold the book that I am reading.

Read a book set in England

I read a book to earn this badge: 
My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece

My sister lives on the mantelpiece: a novel by Annabel Pitcher —

Jamie's family has been torn apart by grief; five years ago, his older sister Rose was killed in a terrorist bombing in London. Jamie's mother abandons the family, and his father's incapability of dealing with Rose's death leaves Jamie mostly in the care of his teenage sister, Jasmine (Rose's surviving twin). At school, Jamie finds a friend in Sunya, but must keep the friendship a secret due to his father's prejudices.

This was not a light summer beach read! However, I enjoyed it. This short novel packed an emotional punch and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a "serious" read.
