A Few Things I've Been Reading

This post is inspired by one of my followers.
My free Kindle books have been put to good use. My Kindle is easy to hold in bed and I can find a new book whenever I am ready for one. I can easily check facebook and my email too. Is that a good thing? I read about a book a day...too many to share on here. Here are a couple of my favorites. 

The Fuller Brush Man was a longer book, took me 2 days, it had a lot of twists and turns. 

 The Murder House is the book our book club read. We haven't met to discuss it yet so I am not giving any details out. At first I wanted to say OMG but now I'm thinking there's some predictability in the story. Hopefully I'll make it to book club to hear what others have to say about it.

 The Prayer box takes place on the Outer Banks and gives some insight on life in that area. Lisa has a shorter book out that is almost a volume one to this book.


This story takes place in New Orleans......need I say more? It's colorful and fast moving. I'd read more of her books.

I don't remember what this book was about, just that I liked it.
I'm thrifty, so I don't buy books for my Kindle, but I'll take the free ones. I thought I'd never get them all the rate I am going now, I just might....I just might. Sometimes it's a volume 1 in a series. I've only had one problem with that....the story didn't end, but I am not purchasing the next book. I have tons of other books to choose from.

The moral of this post: Never look a gift horse in the mouth....or never pass up a free book (only the ones I'd like to read).


  1. Linda, I used to read like crazy. Then once I retired my reading slowed way down. I wish I could make myself read more. I truly think it's because it tires my eyes so much more than it used to. I am glad you are enjoying some reading. I loved Frank McCourt...he so good and I think he only wrote 3 books. He has passed, way too soon. I read Nana Diana's book too. :) Hope you had a good Sunday. It was windy, gray and not really that much warmer than yesterday. Bless you , love, xoxo,Susie

  2. This sounds like my Husband, he can't put a book down and reads the WHOLE book before you know it! Hope you have a great day, prayers continue! HUGS!

  3. I enjoy reading and have been trying to do more of it recently. I am also really trying to read more blogs here as well.
