The Book Corner / Purging books
« on: March 31, 2019, 05:41:56 am »
Do any of y'all ever do this?

A year or so ago I got rid of a lot of paper books ... in clearing out my dad's house after he died I realized I didn't want to leave the same problem for my son! So I only kept the ones that I felt were 'classics' or possible re-reads. Or ones that I'd recommend and share. That's still probably more books than the average person (present company excluded) has in their house. ;)

Yesterday, I decided to purge kindle books. I started acquiring in June of 2008 and I've finished through January 2010. Basically, I'm deleting any free books or really cheap books I got back then that I haven't read or don't even recognize as having bought! :o Sadly it happened a lot -- it took me a while to get over the "whoa, free books, gotta have it" mentality and be a bit more discriminating. :) I'm also deleting ones I've read that I know I'll not re-read, or that I recall I didn't even like.

I have 3326 left in my account -- unfortunately I didn't pay attention when I started but I estimate I've deleted at least 100 books so far. Kinda feels good.

The Book Corner / Amazon first reads -- March 2019

I guess nothing looked appealing to anyone since this thread is only just getting started on the 6th of the month!

March First Reads

Can't say anything particularly appeals to me either. :(  I may skip this month. It's not like I don't have anything else to read. ::) ;D

The Book Corner / Amazon First Reads - February 2019
« on: February 01, 2019, 04:03:04 am »

Contemporary Fiction: Where the Forest Meets the Stars
Domestic Suspense: The Perfect Child
Memoir: The Broken Circle: A Memoir of Escaping Afghanistan
Young Adult: The Fever King (Feverwake Book 1)
Historical Fiction: What the Wind Knows
Children's Picture Book: It's Not Hansel and Gretel (It's Not a Fairy Tale Book 2)

I went with the Historical Fiction which is set in 1920s Ireland. The Contemporary Fiction one looked too "nice". The Domestic Suspense looked completely disturbing.

Let's Talk Kindle! / Voyage fans:
« on: January 23, 2019, 04:31:08 am » has the Voyage on sale today for $129.99. That's a significant discount from what they used to sell it for new on Amazon. Interestingly this is clearly marked as Brand NEW -- so not a refurbished unit. The write up says they are actually "International 3G" versions but the 3G won't work in North America so that's why they're selling them as WiFi only.

The Book Bazaar / Free Book Finds -- 2019 -- Please: No self promotion
« on: January 01, 2019, 04:22:36 am »
Post free* book finds here.   No self-promotion please!

To search Amazon for free books, click here.

This thread is for members to post their Free book finds, no self-promotion please. Posts about an author's own books will be removed. Also, please don't post your friend's book as a "find."  You didn't just  "find it," did you? ;) 

And please do not link through other sites:  use KBoards affiliate links (link-maker above) or generic Amazon links. :)

If you have a book of your own to promote, you may start a thread all your own in the Book Bazaar to promote your book, to post news and to talk to your fans!  Of course, you may also list the book in your Avatar and signature.  And you may list your temporarily free books in our Links to Free Books thread. Thanks!

Tip: typing in the title in addition to including the cover helps when doing searches!

We generally try to keep this thread on topic with book posts only, off-topic posts will be "pruned"!  This helps members who use the "new post" indicator or who have subscribed to the thread.  Thanks for your cooperation!
