Mondays: Musings/Mailbox/What Are You Reading

What does it take for you to give up on a book you’re reading?

A bad story line and weak characters..

Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia at A Girl and Her BooksLeah from Amused by Books  is hosting for the month of September.

I received ONE book from Stacy, Carrie by Stephen King and downloaded 20 free e-books from Amazon. Well, all are light reads (cozy mysteries, romance etc) but so what? I had fun downloading!!
1) The Everything Soup, Stew, and Chili Cookbook (Everything (Cooking)
2) Sarah's Diary 
3) The Oak Leaves 
4) The Fashion Police (Amber Fox Mystery)
5) Enemies and Playmates
6) Trace the Dead Eye 
7) The Manicurist
8) Kissing Kelli (A Texas Legacy Romantic Comedy #1)
9) My Heart Remembers 
10) Lonely Millionaire
11) The Shakespeare Manuscript 
12) Gaze Of Intent
13) Restoring Hope (Native American Romance Series Book 1)
14) Maid for the Billionaire (Book 1) (Legacy Collection)
15) Texas Hold Him (Leisure Historical Romance) 
16) Touched by Angels
17) Mama Does Time (A Mace Bauer Mystery) 
18) The Preacher's Bride 
19) Without A Word 
20) The Inconvenient Duchess

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila of Book Journey.

I did manage to read two e-novels yesterday on my laptop via Kindle for PC. Both romances. I think that is what will get me back into reading.

1) Lonely Millionaire by Carol Grace
2) The Inconvenient Duchess by Christine Merrill

I'm so jealous of anyone who has the patience for ebooks. I just can't do it for some reason. Have a great week.

Mystica said...

Quite a haul. Enjoy them all.

Brooke from The Bluestocking Guide said...

Wow!!! That's quite a haul.

Here is mine

Thanks for visiting my blog, and enjoy your reading.

Wow! Great haul this week. I love cozy mysteries.

Enjoy your books!

Veens said...

Awesome. Let me know if all of them are good :) And I will download it too :)

Raine said...

The same thing goes with me too. These ebooks are new to me. When I clicked on the "Trace the Dead", other related spooky titles came up. "The Shadowing" and "From Within" to name a few. Enjoy your reads. I can't wait to explore this Kindle on PC thingie. I'm hoping to come back again here since I haven't read most of the summaries. :D

Pam (@iwriteinbooks) said...

I think my biggest turn off is bad writing more than plot or characters.

Vicki said...

That's a lot of free books!! I'll have to check some of them out.

Unknown said...

29 free books, good for you!

I was excited when you said you read 2 books yesterday! Yay! You're getting back into the reading thing!

I have been experiencing a bit of a reading slump this past week...very bad timing bewcause I'm reading some good books but I just don't feel excited.

Enjoy your books! I hope you have a good week.

Serena said...

free ebooks are good, though I have yet to read any on my kindle. I'm sad I know. I hope you enjoy your books and Carrie is one of my favorites, though I'm reading IT right now in a read-a-long with Anna.

Anna said...

Hope all those light cozies help you break out of your reading slump!
