Required Reading

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Books I have authored.

Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

A Great Way to Get New Books

If you are reading this blog then you are already aware that I am passionate about books and reading. If you are a first time reader, take note, I am passionate about books and literacy. It is refreshing to see technology applied to literature. Amazon’s Kindle is one venue but so far only for those with deep pockets. For those of us with a more modest budget, check out is a revolutionary and for those of us who buy lots of books, economical way to get new books hot off the press. Anyone who has NetFlix will find the methodology familiar. There is a wide range of subscription plans starting at $10.99/month. They also have audiobooks in both CD and Mp3. You check out the inventory, set up a queue and sit back and wait to be treated to books coming right to your door. You read the books, return them and wait for the next batch. If you absolutely can’t part with a book, you can buy it at a discount. If you have books you own and want to sell them to, they will apply their payment to your account. Your monthly subscription fee is all you pay, no hidden costs. Shipping both ways is included.

If you haven’t caught the excitement yet, think about it. You can easily drop $8.00 on a new paperback. If you order online, then you pay shipping. If you read a great deal (pretty obvious if you are reading a book blog) you buy lots of books and then wonder what to do with them. I think is an exciting new concept for those of us who love to read. Check them out at
