The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Kindle version)
So you bought your wife the Kindle for Christmas, so why not buy her one of the top selling books of 2010 to go with it. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is a great thriller. It's a dark and often sinister murder mystery that is very well written and is full of intrigue, suspense and above all, great characters.
It should be noted that this book is very adult oriented, so the book should not be bought for children - if you think your child is old enough to read it, I suggest you read the book first so you can make an informed decision.
