I broke my own rule.

My Kindle rule, that I never buy a book any more unless I have downloaded the free sample and read it, and want to keep reading that very minute.  It has allowed me to save lots of money by indulging my desire to impulse buy (by snagging many, many free samples) without A) spending money and B) having mountains of TBR books around me.

Until now.

I read Soulless and loved it. I then read Changeless and OMG wanted the next book now this very minute now.

I pre-ordered.

Blameless was on my Kindle when I woke up this morning.

Now this very minute now is finally here.

Will I regret breaking my rule?

Will it be as wonderful as I want it to be?

Stay tuned.

In the meantime, watch this again:

  1. Love this. Again.
    How did you like the book? I have Kindle on my computer and download free samples but often order the hard copy before I get to page ten.

    • I haven’t finished it. I will. I’m annoyed that Alexia and Maccon are being kept apart so long, and it’s turned into a wacky action book instead of about the two of them bickering and getting into wacky action events together. But I will persevere.

      What books have you read lately?

  2. A really good one I recently read is “Bayou Farewell – The Rich life and Tragic Death of the Louisiana Coast” by Mike Tidwell. I’ve recommended this book to so many people who come back to me and said it is one of the best books they have ever read.
    Here’s a link if you’re interested:

    • This really is going to be tragic, isn’t it? Thanks for the rec.

      • It’s fascinating. The author hitchhiked on shrimp boats to get to know the culture and he brings it to life like no other I have ever read. What it is mostly about is how the land is falling into the Gulf so rapidly and what we need to do to fix things.
        It’s not a depressing book, quite the opposite.
