As some of you may know, Sparky has been around a while. And lately there are all these fabulous deals for upgraded Kindles…but shhh, I don’t want Sparky to know that I’m looking.
Has anyone upgraded and transferred their books to the new device? I know from Customer Service that the books are all available in the Cloud, but how would that work in reality?
I spent the morning creating Word docs. with my various collections, so that if all the books are downloaded in one big heap—that’s how I visualize it!—I would know what I’ve read and when.
Or I could leave the books I’ve read in the Cloud.
I’ve noticed recently that this blog now has 400 followers! Thanks to all of you who have signed up here. This was my first Word Press blog…and since I have eleven blogs, my followers are spread among the sites.
Today I got two new e-books that I had pre-ordered Can’t wait to read them!
Crazy Love You, by Lisa Unger, is another psychological suspense read, which I seem to crave lately. And nobody does it better than Unger.
Love hurts. Sometimes it even kills.
Darkness has a way of creeping up when Ian is with Priss. Even when they were kids, playing in the woods of their small Upstate New York town, he could feel it. Still, Priss was his best friend, his salvation from the bullies who called him “loser” and “fatboy”…and from his family’s deadly secrets.
Now that they’ve both escaped to New York City, Ian no longer inhabits the tortured shell of his childhood. He is a talented and successful graphic novelist, and Priss…Priss is still trouble. The booze, the drugs, the sex–Ian is growing tired of late nights together trying to keep the past at bay. Especially now that he’s met sweet, beautiful Megan, whose love makes him want to change for the better. But Priss doesn’t like change. Change makes her angry. And when Priss is angry, terrible things begin to happen…
The First Wife, by Erica Spindler, promises thrills galore.
As a child, Bailey Browne dreamed of a knight in shining armor swooping in to rescue her and her mother. As she grows older, those dreams transform, becoming ones of a mysterious stranger who will sweep her off her feet and whisk her away from her ordinary existence. Then, suddenly, there he is. Despite the ten year difference in their ages, her working class upbringing and his of privilege, Logan Abbott and Bailey fall deeply in love. Marriage quickly follows.
But when Logan brings her home to his horse farm in Louisiana, a magnificent estate on ninety wooded acres, her dreams of happily-ever-after begin to unravel. A tragic family history she knew nothing about surfaces, plus whisperings about the disappearance of his first wife, True, and rumors about the women from the area who have gone missing—and when another woman disappears, all signs point to her husband’s involvement.
At first Bailey ignores the whispers, even circumstantial evidence against Logan mounts. But finally, Bailey must make a choice: believe what everyone says—or bet her life on the man she loves, but is realizing she hardly knows.
And from Amazon Vine later this week, I will be getting Second Life, by S. J. Watson, who brought us Before I Go to Sleep.

She finds solace in her sister’s best friend, Sophie, but when Sophie reveals the extent of her sister’s online life, Julia becomes convinced that the truth about her death lies deep in the dark, sordid world of online chatrooms and internet sex.
What begins as Julia’s search for the truth about her sister quickly turns into an exploration of herself and her own desires. After all, the internet is her playground, and why be just one thing when you can be as many as you like? What could possibly go wrong? After all, it’s only cybersex, isn’t it? No one’s going to get hurt.
But then she meets the dark and mysterious Lukas in an online chat room, and things begin to get very dangerous indeed.
