Books to Read


So in this time of enforced leisure, have you considered what you will be reading? 

I am, sadly, an essential worker and thus have no time. But a number of my friends who are also authors have been putting books on sale to help out the passage of time until the world rights itself and sails into the sunset. 

This one, however… I first found the lovely funny and sometimes dramatic world of Doreen Tovey’s Siamese in the public library. A friend told a story of his parent’s incredibly smart Siamese cat, and I immediately thought of this book. Then, to my absolute delight, I discovered that it was available on KU! Really, really, if you like cats, don’t miss out on this one. They are so much fun! I can remember belly laughing at the antics of her kitties. 

Cats in the Belfry

I have a free book available. Twisted Mindflow is a collection of shorts, and while they are eclectic (what else did you expect from me?) they are worth the price! The book is a downloadable pdf available here on the site. 
My friend JL Curtis has put all of his books on sale this week. There are many excellent reads here, from action-adventure (the Grey Man series) to SF (Rimworld). Solid reads. If you enjoyed Tom Clancy, you won’t be disappointed in his work. 
There is nothing wrong with a little escapism. Fleeing this confusing, madding world for the refuge of a good book isn’t just relaxing, it’s therapeutic. Go for it!

    I might go back and re-read some of my favorites, though I have been picking up free Kindle books rather liberally. I just borrowed Cats in the Belfry, too!

  2. I have sworn a dire oath to try to covert my reading time into writing time.

    It is a sort of magic. “John clicked his mouse and poof! The cat book flew through the ether and landed in his Kindle.”
    Thank for the suggestion.

    Kindle Unlimited. flat rate of $9.99 a month, as many books as I can read, limited to 10 on my device at one time. You return one to get the next one. I’ve found some decent ones, found a bunch of trash, poorly edited, weak writing, preaching the message of the day, etc, etc. Usual ratio of trash to not-trash.

    1. The great thing about KU is that there’s no commitment. If the book sucks, back it goes and grab another one. You don’t feel like you have to get your money’s worth.
