When Breath Becomes Air

The Kindle version of Paul Kalanithi’s When Breath Becomes Air is currently on sale for $2.99 at Amazon and, as this is a book I would’ve recommended at its hardcover price, it’s a steal.

When Breath Becomes Air is short enough to read in one-sitting, but powerful enough to linger for days/months/years. It’s a sad book–any book that ends with the death of a 37-year-old is–but, as Paul’s wife Lucy writes, “What happened to Paul was tragic, but he was not a tragedy.” The book is less about dying and more about learning to live, and it’s a wonder that Paul was able to write this book while battling progressive lung cancer. Lucy (who later fell in love with the widower of another memoirist) also wrote a compelling epilogue that brought tears to my eyes.

And feel free to skip the foreword.

Related: Shopbop recently launched a boutique on Amazon, and while Prime members could previously use their Amazon credentials to get free 2-day shipping at Shopbop, shopping directly on Amazon allows for a longer fee-free return window, and also allows you to use Amazon gift cards and credit card for that (sweet sweet) 5% cashback. I don’t think it’s meant to replace shopping at Shopbop, since the boutique on Amazon won’t allow for the use of promo codes during sale time, or allow you to accrue loyalty points.

Happy shopping!
