Geek Deals Roundup: Sci-Fi Kindle ebooks
Summer’s nearly over, but there’s still time to squeeze some reading in during the next few weeks. So if you’re in the mood for some fun science fiction, here are six excellent books you can get on Amazon for $10 or less.
Carl Sagan, best known for his non-fiction books and television program, also wrote the novel Contact. That was, of course, turned into the movie directed by Robert Zemeckis. Now, you can enjoy this beloved novel for just seven bucks.
The movie starring Matt Damon was critically acclaimed and wildly successful a few years back. If you’d like to read the excellent novel that predated the movie, you can grab it for a ten-spot.
The first Mass Effect game did an excellent job introducing us to the intricacies of an outstanding sci-fi universe, but the prequel novel is required reading if you want the full low-down on Anderson and Saren.
Written alongside Kubrick’s classic film of the same name, 2001: A Space Odyssey works incredibly well as a novel. Considering the pedigree here, it’s no surprise.
Steven Spielberg is currently in the process of turning this into a big-budget film, but Ernest Cline’s incredibly popular novel is well worth reading before the movie comes out.
While the “Legends” Star Wars books are no longer considered canon, there’s still a lot of enjoyment to be had. This first installment in the Thrawn Trilogy is an absolute must-read if you want more Star Wars in your life.
If you prefer audiobooks, rejoice. Every single book mentioned above is also on Audible, so you can enjoy your sci-fi while you’re driving, exercising, or relaxing.
