I downloaded books for the first time on Edelweiss, thanks to an offer by William Morrow for the following e-galleys for review:
Tiger Shrimp Tango by Tim Dorsey. a mystery/thriller set in Florida.
That Old Black Magic by Mary Jane Clark, Wedding Cake Mystery #4
I'd much rather have paper books in my hot little hands and will take print any day over e-books, but I am going to do my darn est to read these before they disappear from my computer. I only have them for 45, 52, 80, or 136 days, depending on the release date of the books.
I also found myself reading several books at a time, vowing to finish them all:
The Kitchen God's Wife by Amy Tan, Chinese-American fiction, a book from my shelves
This Is the Story of a Happy Marriage by Ann Patchett, memoir and essay writing
Tatiana by Martin Cruz Smith, spy thriller
Paws for Murder by Annie Knox, cozy mystery that I'm quite enjoying
I worry that I have Book-ADD (a term I made up) and am too easily distracted by a new book while I'm already reading one.
Review books and AREs (advance reader's editions) that came recently?
The Altarpiece (The Cross and the Crown Series, Book One) by Sarah Kennedy- an imagined h8istory of what might have happened to all the nuns after Henry VIII took over the church in England in the 16th Century.
Children of the Revolution (Inspector Banks Novel #21) by Peter Robinson, police procedural and crime thriller
This Dark Road to Mercy by Wiley Cash, fiction
What I bought for myself, on Kindle:
The Signature of All Things by Elizabeth Berg, historical novel involving a family of botanists.
