I: Inevitable

Inevitable by Jason Letts Inevitable had been on my Kindle since March 24, 2011.  Eek!  At the time, I thought the story sounded good, and although I had never read a book by Jason Letts before, Amanda Hocking’s name attached to the book appealed to […]

I cannot pass up free books.  I’m always perusing Amazon’s and Smashwords’s free YA/NA/teen/children’s Fantasy and Scifi pages.  I get wicked (there’s my inner-northeasterner writing) excited when […]

Today’s prompt from the 15 Day Book Blogger Challenge involves nighttime book related routines. Day 2: What is your bedtime reading ritual? As I confessed in yesterday’s post, I will finish a book before bed if it’s 85% read.  By that point (and usually sooner), […]
