As most of you Kindle lovers already know, there are more and more great yoga books available in e-book format. Although I think e-books are still a bit overpriced, I love the convenience of having a small yoga library in the palm of my hand anywhere I go. I’ll be the first to admit that some yoga books work for the Kindle, and some just don’t. Yoga “confessionals” are a perfect fit for the Kindle. But what makes the Kindle (in all of its variations) way cool is that every now and then Amazon has a fire-sale on a yoga e-book for a price that you would never see for a book made from trees.
Tonight I noticed that for this weekend only, Neal Pollack’s “Stretch: The Unlikely Making of a Yoga Dude,” is available for only 99 cents! I haven’t read it yet, but at that price it’s kind of a no-brainer. Downloaded. From the product description and the reviews I’ve read around the web, it sounds like an entertaining read:
Stretch mercilessly lampoons the bizarre, omnipresent culture of yoga, but it’s also a story of profound personal transformation. Pollack started off mocking yoga. Now he’s become one of its most enthusiastic proponents.
