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.
I read Soulless and loved it. I then read Changeless and OMG wanted the next book now this very minute now.
Blameless was on my Kindle when I woke up this morning.
If you look in the left sidebar you will note that I have read four books by British authors so far. Other than the first, I seem to be leaning toward period mysteries right now. Marion Chesney’s are early 20th Century, and Ariana Franklin’s are during the reign of Henry II, who (along with Eleanor of Aquitaine) makes very effective cameo appearances.
The fact that there are only four in the sidebar is a little surprising to me, because I assumed it would be much higher than that. I’ve listened to six other books that are set in England and have read five other British books, but it appears they were actually written by Americans.
I have achieved the second level:
• “Put The Kettle On” – Read 2 Typically British novels.
• “Gordon Bennett” – Read 4 Typically British novels.
