Here is a link for different places to get free e-reader books. It comes from About.com.

http://freebies.about.com/od/onlinebooks/tp/free-kindle-books.htm

It also has a link for Nook and some audio.  Some we already know about but it says there are 32 places.  It might be worth checking out.

Hi All!..I am trying to catch up on the Philippa Gregory books..the one I am reading is " Meridon"... It is very different ...it has gypsies,tightrope walkers, bareback riders etc and it is set in Georgian England...I love her books and the history and polish the author gives to her style...if you like historical novels, she is your author.

Lea,  let me know how you lie the Apprentice. 

Comment by Ellen Pearce on July 26, 2015 at 5:17pm

Read interesting book-Rules of Civility.  I liked it for the literary references and the introspection of the characters over several years.  There were a few ugly words used but the author thought they were appropriate.  Just giving a heads up warning.  It's revolves to some degree around a book written by Washington called Rules of Civility and someone living his life by them.  The novel had substance and would be a good book for discussion.

Now listening to  Code Verity. It's a good listen.  Not sure I would read it.  It's about a friendship between two women that developers during WWII in England.  One is a pilot and the other is in Special Ops.  Why I like listening is because the story is told in falsebacks.  I can listen over long periods so I can follow the story more easily.  I don't think my poor memory could keep up which is just my problem not a critique of the novel.

Amanda Best, I take note of your book sounds like something I'd love to read.  TV had a info/interview regarding kindle vs. books.  They claim books are here to stay. Owning, smelling new books was a comment shared. It is a wonderful event, and time in space to search for that unique book. Our children's book festival 3-4times a year at mall is so much fun, time passes and then stop at fast food courts for a good meal while reviewing, feeling the books. Love it.. I can't read, I don't feel so bad in trading them back.

I picked up Apprentice by Jennifer Chiaverini, being summer and little more things to do outdoors being it summer, knowing far too well, winter will settle in, like it or not.. Hope to get into the story.. Like to clean out some of my books.

Good Evening everyone!..it is late here but I love it!..the house is quiet..husband is in bed and now I have time with my books!..I finally got to the library yesterday...boy, I can't believe how far behind I am!!...so many new books and authors...I love it!!..I came away with four of my favorite author's books...Philippa Gregory. Since I have been using the Kindle and Amazon...I haven't felt the need to see what I am missing from the library...yesterday, I felt like a kid in the candy store!..and boy, was it delicious!...I walked away from the library, with arms aching from carrying books!..it is good to be back!

I'm with you on the kindle, Lea. I have an iPad, but the idea of reading books on it doesn't appeal to me yet. I get books at the library or cheaply at used book sales and don't have to worry if I leave them in my car, drop them, etc.

We got new flooring in our family room this week and had to remove all the furniture. Nothing like unloading and reloading a seven foot tall double bookcase to make you realize how many quilt and reference books you have! At least my paperbacks and novels are in the basement.

I have Go Set a Watchman on hold at the library, I am 30th in line so it will be a while before I get it, but even with conflicting reviews and everything, I will be glad to read it.
I loved The Supremes At Earl's All-You-Can-Eat by Edward Kelsey Moore, Sandy, it was thoroughly entertaining and quite emotional, I think it would make a great movie. I highly recommend it, too.
I love my Kindle, but if I had to choose one or the other, I would pick traditional books, but I so enjoy having both!
I have been reading The Love Child by Philippa Carr, (AKA Victoria Holt), it is not as scandalous as the title sounds like. It is set in England after the restoration and involves the politics of the Catholics/Protestants in the monarchy. It has been interesting and something a bit different than what I would normally read.
Last week I finished Lost Lake by Sarah Addison Allen and it was such a wonderful story, I really loved it.
