A Free Kindle Book as I PACK!

I’ve done as much as I can today.

Invoices are done.

Book orders are out.

Laundry is washed

Chiropractor appointment of COURSE has happened ((And there are less and less jelly beans in that jar!))

Bank run has been made ---

The potatoes for dinner are in the oven. Steaks will soon be on the grill.

More books need to be put in the car – I’ll do that in a bit.

I’m dead on my feet and I bet I’ll be in bed by 9pm ----

I still have NOT written my Yard Sale Saturday post, but pics are on my phone and I hope to get some time to list my stuff before Saturday, but I’m just OUT. OF. GAS!

I’m packing a couple of projects --- this is a van trip so I can take bags and baskets of projects, so I think this means that the Nearly Insane thing is going. The little white FW is going because it needs to be run some more. And then I’ll switch to the black one so they each get equal opportunity to stay RUNNING.

I’m hoping to hit the road by 8am and drive myself about half way tomorrow…I need to be in Poughkeepsie by 5pm on Wednesday. I’m hoping this leaves me some exploring time to hit some more antiquey places --- you never know, right?

So --- just in case you don’t get an update from me in the morning, it’s because nothing happened between now and then but SLEEP!

Here’s the book I just downloaded:

Refuge on Crescent Hill by Melanie Dobson is free today in the Amazon Kindle store, and has received an average user rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars based on 59 customer reviews. As of this posting, the book was free in the Amazon Kindle store.

Category: Suspense

Book Description:

This homecoming wasn’t what she expected . . .

Jobless, homeless, and broke, Camden Bristow decides to visit the grandmother she hasn’t seen in years. But when Camden arrives in Etherton, Ohio, she discovers that her grandmother has passed away, leaving her the 150-year-old mansion on Crescent Hill. The site of her happiest summers as a child, the run-down mansion is now her only refuge.

When Camden finds evidence that she may not be the mansion’s only occupant, memories of Grandma Rosalie’s bedtime stories about secret passageways and runaway slaves fuel her imagination.

What really happened at Crescent Hill?

Who can she turn to for answers in this town full of strangers?

And what motivates the handsome local Alex Yates to offer his help?

As she works to uncover the past and present mysteries harbored in her home, Camden uncovers deep family secrets within the mansion’s walls that could change her life–and the entire town–forever.

Sounds good to me! Double check before clicking that it is still free ----

Have a great evening, everyone!


  1. 'Night, night Bonnie! Sleep well, sweet dreams, and wake up happy and rested :-)

  2. Thanks, I really like your book reviews/suggestions. Have a fun trip.

  3. I am new to my Kindle Fire and I was just wondering if there is somewhere special that you go to, to find these daily specials on free books. I am new to your blog and really enjoy your escapades! I feel like I am right with you instead of in NE Ohio. ;o)

  4. Poughkeepsie--some of my old stomping grounds before I moved to the other coast. Wave to my best friend as you pass thru Wappingers Falls. If you get the chance and it's open, go visit Olana. It's about an hour away but you won't be sorry. Www.olana.org

  5. Yes please, how do you get notifications of the free book each day?


  6. I was wondering if there was some way to get notifications each day of free books too, I keep missing these, I live in France so by the time I look they aren't free any more. Linda

  7. I'm so excited to be in your class on Friday in Kingston, NY, can't wait to meet you!

  8. Thanks for the tip on the free book - but I have a Nook. I tried to download it from Barnes & Noble and they say it doesn't exist. Sad! Have a good trip - drive carefully!
