Ooooooo! Heads up, guys! This was literally my favorite book of 2019 and it’s only $2.99 today (not sure for how much longer). I cannot say enough good things about it. My 83 year old mom loved it too. It’s just really special.
That sounds like my kind of book. Just bought it, thanks for the tip!
Yay! It's truly one of those books that defies categorization. One of the most original books I've ever read. I also just really love the author. When I met her last September, she was so sweet. I'd reviewed the book on my (now woefully neglected) IG and as soon as she saw my name on my badge, she squealed and gave me a big hug. We laughed and gabbed about books until we finally HAD to go sit down because they event was starting. She was my first follower on Instagram. We've messaged a bit since then too. I'm SO looking forward to what she's going to write next.
If you're interested, she was a guest on the Reading Women podcast last September 11th. She's just really interesting and quite charming. Maybe wait until you read the book though. IMO, it's better if you know next to nothing about the book. It was just so surprising that I'm glad I didn't know anything before I read it.
This site seems to have some good titles - some new ones too - although I don't think all are currently available. I tried to get the Edward Snowden book and came up empty. But, worth a try... readanybook.com/
It's that time of the month again! Anyone picked their May Amazon First Read yet? Every time I read a description, I think, "Oh, that might be good" and then I see some bad reviews an change my mind! One of the authors, Jamie Beck is a friend of a friend, so I'm tempted to get that.
I ended up not picking anything for May because I just couldn't find one I really wanted to read. Now THIS month, OTOH, there are multiple titles I'm interested in. Isn't that always the way?
I got an email today from Amazon telling me that, because I bought a specific Kindle title, I now have $5 credit to use towards "select Kindle books" from that same author. When you click on the link, there is ONE book and it's $19.99, which means that my credit would bring the price down to $14.99 Yeah, I'm taking a hard pass on that. I'm overwhelmed by their generosity!
