Mondays: Mailbox/What Are You Reading?/Musings

Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia at A Girl and Her Books after a tour, she is hosting it  on her Mailbox Monday blog for the month of November 2011. I downloaded free kindle editions from Amazon. You can check those out for NOOK too. Have fun looking out for interesting titles at Pixel of Ink. (I have subscribed it on my Google Reader). I downloaded the following 15 free e-books

Gingerbread Cookbook (Gooseberry Patch Classics)
Cool Shade 
The Usurper (thriller, political intrigue)
Medical Error 
One Imperfect Christmas 
A Simple Amish Christmas
The Noon God
Capitol Reflections
Amos Walker: The Complete Story Collection: The Complete Story Collection
Daughter of Joy (Brides of Culdee Creek, Book 1) 
Easy Vegetarian Recipes
The Everything Potluck Cookbook (Everything Series)
Home For Christmas
In the Garden of Temptation (The Garden Series Book 1)
A Lesson in Passion (Lesson Series)

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila of Book Journey. I managed to read a few  e-books via my kindle on PC on my laptop! I finished the following:

A Fair of the Heart (Welcome To Redemption) 
WILD JUSTICE (Beaumont Brides)
Not What She Seems

How do you decide to read a book by an author you haven’t read before? What sort of recommendations count most highly in making that decision?

Mostly via book blogger's recommendations. Sometimes from some other review sites. I read a lot of poetry and crime fiction. Hence I am always on a look out for such books. Although I do pick up books on whim too...!!

I think this is one of main reasons why I don't have an e-reader--I'm sure I'd end up with hundreds of free downloads, but how do you manage to read them all?

Sometimes I think about buying a book e-reader, but then I think about spending all that money on books I can hold and flip through.... So far, I'm enjoying the print versions. Although thee are some books I'm interested in that are only e-book versions. :( Maybe someday.

Come by and see what I've read. Rabid Reader
Enjoy you reading week. Happy Thanksgiving if you're a Thanksgiving follower. Otherwise, Happy Reading Week. :)
