Finished the Konrath books...not bad at all, at all. Hmm, maybe I should pull out some of the Irish stuff lurking in my library to honor the upcoming St. Paddy's day. For now, I'm reading another freebie, The Dead Saint Bishop Lynn Peterson Series by Marilyn Brown Oden. Not too far into it, so don't have anything to say, yet.

Been reading some slow cooker cook books for ideas for the Ninja Cooking system and there are a lot of cook books in the freebie file, too. Another cook book I'd recommend (it was a freebie yesterday, who knows about today) The Kitchen Wizard Flexipes by Mari Suzuki. She gives recipes for bases that can be used in multiple ways...very interesting. I have always enjoyed reading cookbooks and have quite a collection of them, both e-books and DT books...some dating back to my mother's collection in the '40's. I've even written one of my family's recipes and another on those I picked up while in the Army....one day I hope to see them in print.

I just finished Between Seasons (Home) on my Kindle. It was a free book but a lot of fun to read. Author: Aida Brassington.

Getting ready to start The Lost Symbol (Robert Langdon) By Dan Brown. Looks to be a long read with a lot of chapters. Tonight will be the start to this adventure. Another Kindle book.

There's a J.A. Konrath book, Disturb, A Medical Thriller, that's on the Kindle freebie list today...don't know how long it will be free, but if you like mysteries, you might want to capture this one. Great plots and well-written text is a Konrath forte. This is not one of the Jack Daniels mysteries, so not familiar with it, but I got it and recommend Konrath's writings.

BTW, for those who have the Kindle or the Kindle app for your 'puter or tablet...I hope you are aware of the 100-top selling lists on the Kindle E-Book site. They have both paid and freebies top selling lists and I check it weekly, at least. They update hourly, I think, to keep the lists current.

Right now, I'm reading the latest in Elizabeth Hunter's Elemental Masters series, Building from Ashes. I picked up one of her books on the freebie list some time ago, read and enjoyed it and the freebie did what it was supposed to...I bought the rest of the series. They're a good blend of vamps & magic and are well written. Unfortunately, the books are not stand-alone reading. The first three are a continuing plot line...which is something I hate, but get hooked into anyway. Why can't authors tell their story in one book? Is everyone trying to be a Tolkien, or just pimping for the money....maybe both?

I came across a site called Bookbub and really like it for kindle downloads also. It's easy and you can go through Amazon. I picked 3 free books there. Now I need to recheck Ereader site for your Konrath book, Mary.

I just started Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol with the Robert Langdon character. I think of Tom Hanks. LOL

Thanks, I'll check Bookbub..I was able to find Baen Books online and they offer science fiction/fantasy...most are for a charge, less than buying the paperbacks, but some are free. I was able to pick up some of my favorites by Mercedes Lackey there.

And, of course, there is always the Gutenberg Project for the classics...I've downloaded a lot of books from there, too.

Tricia, Grace has been around forever. Ha. I started reading her in the '60s. And she wrote so many of them. I especially liked her WWII books. Every few years I get on the kick and read all I have of her. A lot....Glad to find this site. I'm retired and have the time to read now.

Thought I'd let you know that today's Kindle Daily Deal is Dr. Mark Hyman's The Blood Sugar Solution and the accompanying Recipe Book...

I like his referring to today's plague of "diabesity"..a combination of obesity and diabetes which is increasing world-wide.

I just finished Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol. That was one great read. I had trouble putting it down. Now I'm looking through Maria Emmerich's cookbooks. There is a flax protein waffle recipe that I plan to try. They can be frozen and popped in the toaster.

Time to bring Jezzie's thread.

Just started Ordained Irreverence (Book one of Elmo Jenkins' writings)

Next will be The Fox By Arlene Radasky.
A breathtaking story of love and rediscovery unfolds in this tale about the unlikely connection between a modern archaeologist, a member of a first-century Caledonian tribe, and a romance that stretches across time

These are free books from BookBub. My kindle is a happy boy!

Have any of you read the VII volumes of Stephen Kings The Dark Tower (there is also a volume to put in between 4 & 5 volumes) The first book of the series I did not understand very well or was a bit confused but I stayed it thru. Volumes 2, 3 and plus the inserted book between 4 & 5 and the remainder thru 6 were excellent but with the final volume VII again being like Volume I was some what bewildering. I will never commit to so very many books in a series again as the time comsumed was just way too long. The volumes themselves were the size of 3 or more books in one.
There is yet another bio of Thomas Jefferson but it promises to be more about Jefferson the man's power and I will try for that one in the Library. I really am old fashioned but the library books are not in the great shape they used to be and I cannot help but wonder where this books may have been.
The last up to date book I read was just incredible- The Orchardist I recommend it a lot.

Loved most of Stephen King's books but couldn't get into the last few series.

Reading now and it's scaring the living hell out of me.

I had one but it fell victim to my DGD and broke the little hole on the side that it goes into. I have an Itty Bitty Book Lite that I use if need be. When I upgrade Kindles I will get another one...Loved it while I had it, though!!!

worked just fine but now it is HOT outside- can't stand the pinging so I cover up every inch if myself so it does get very warm. Curtis the neighbor behind me is using his gas powered behemouth that is soooo noisy- now we are dueling whackers.
bb much later.

That is what her mother wants to know...everyone said it curls coming out of the head she will have curls...but nope...straight as her mothers. She sure is happier I think. That pony tail was very heavy...

Thanks for reviving this thread...got a couple more Konrath's, Fuzzy Navel and Cherry Bomb, so will hit those soon. I've been reading some fantasy novels about werewolf packs and now I'm doing a couple of Stephanie Bond's romance/mysteries;

Couldn't read without my Kindle, most type is too small for me without using a magnifying glass but it is getting easier with the improvement in the eye...

Oh that's great to hear Mary. I wouldn't know what I'd do without my kindle.

My DIL brought over a couple of Charlaine Harris' Sookie Stackhouse novels. She is finally done writing Sookie stories now and I just finished her last book. I'm going to miss Sookie Stackhouse and her vamps, shapeshifter, werewolf friends.

Thank you, Loretta, I appreciate that. I just didn't want to take the time to find it this morning, the poker table was calling....shouldn't have answered; although I played a long, long time and didn't lose that much...it was fun.

I tried the search function this morn, but you wouldn't believe the threads it gave me and none was this one.

Whew! now we can renew the thread as I really hated losing it.
