End of Year eBook Talk

Traveling for almost 2 months straight, I've read many many books, actually, more specifically ebooks - they're easier when on the move.  So, here are a few of the details of what I enjoyed.

First and foremost, I shopped until I dropped at All Romance.  They've kept me in ebooks with fabulous specials - loved the 50% back in ebucks offer - and the buy 10 and get 1 free.  Thank you and I look forward to the new year bringing even more fabulous ebooks to the ARe cyber shelves.

I follow a few simple things when I pick out ebooks to read.  I don't shop from bestseller lists, pick up the first 3 in a series and then I search by category.  After that I'll see if authors I've enjoyed before have anything out that sounds interesting.  This simple strategy keeps me in great reads.  Three new to me authors I picked ebooks from and truly enjoyed were Georgia Fox and The Craftsman, Mia Watts with The Policeman's Balls and Cherise Sinclair and the Masters of the Shadowlands series - yes, bought the first three and picked up the last two in another round.  Unfortunately, I didn't do as well with the authors I've enjoyed before.

The other ebook news I have is actually ebook reader news:  I found one I truly enjoy!  Finally!  Kindle Fire may not be only an ebook reader, but it is the tablet/reader that works for me in a variety of ways.  I like the size, display and price, most definitely the price!

Yes, my ebook reading world is most happy this year :-)

I still don't have an ereader and my sister in law was given on for Christmas..I don't know which one yet. But she said she downloaded a couple of ebooks and didn't like reading them on the device...so it's back to print books for her. lol

Tilly - ARE has put a "hurtin'" to my credit cards many times. LOL

Happy New Year to All.
