When I first started posting these, I thought, as an avid reader, that some out there might like the same things that I am reading.
I figure, if we like the same kinds of scrappy quilty things, we might like the same kind of food things ((Hence recipes every once in a while when I decide to cook!)) and book things! I’m always up for passing on a freebie.
So many have asked how I find these…there really is no secret. Just go to the search engine on amazon.com and type in “free kindle book” in the search box. That’s all there is to it.
There are all kinds of genres ----self help, cooking, how to manage your retirement funds, way too much pushy religious stuff if you ask me.
Things I don't have an interest in are horror, fantasy, or sci-fi --- but you can find them if you look.
I generally stick to mysteries, humor, and some romance, but not explicit stuff. I like life stories and dramas that span decades, stuff I can sink my teeth into. I like LONG books that take me deep into the characters thoughts and lives and might take me a long time to finish. I like true stories of amazing times and even more amazing people. These are the things I post.
The thing is, the books are out there, but you have to search through all the riff-raff to find something good. And I hope my postings here make it easy for you to find something good.
DH and I are out the door to go see a movie! It’s rainy, it’s dreary and we love escaping to a Saturday Matinee when I have a Saturday at home, so that’s our plan.
Since you aren’t coming with us..I thought you might find THIS funny! It was still free when I clicked it just a bit ago.
Never Buried by Edie Claire is free today in the Kindle store.
"A funny, fast-paced, clever, and unusual mystery that will have readers clamoring for more. Sheer delight." --Carolyn Hart
"A thoroughly delightful debut. Bright, breezy, and witty. I couldn't put it down."—Tamar Myers
The truth about what happened in 1949 went to Paul Fischer's grave... Too bad his body didn't!
Advertising copywriter Leigh Koslow doesn't pack heat--just a few extra pounds. And she doesn't go looking for trouble. When she moved into her cousin Cara's refurbished Victorian house, she wasn't planning on discovering a corpse--certainly not one that had been embalmed ten years before. But as anyone in the small Pittsburgh borough of Avalon could tell her, her cousin's house has a history attached. A history dating back to two mysterious deaths in the summer of 1949.
Someone wants Leigh and Cara out of the house--someone who has something to hide. But that someone doesn't know Leigh's impetuous cousin, and when Cara digs her heels in, Leigh looks to her old college chum, local policewoman Maura Polanski, for help. But the answers the trio find only point to more questions. Were the scandalous deaths of fifty years ago really an accident and a suicide? Or were they murder?
The nearer the women get to the truth, the more desperate someone becomes. Because some secrets are better off kept. Especially when they hit close to home!
Originally published in mass market paperback by NAL/Penguin, Putnam, Inc. in 1999. Large-Print Edition published by Thorndike, 2002.
