"Starred Review.  Katherine Kellgren gives a marvelous performance in this entertaining chick lit/romance about 30-something Jane, who fantasizes about Jane Austen's heroes (particularly Mr. Darcy) while her real-life relationships flounder." -- Publishers Weekly   "The book is well written, quite readable, and the myriad characters, especially those working at the resort, are quirkily funny... -- Sarah Krygier, Solano County Library, Fairfield, CA, for School Library Journal

TEMPORARILY-Free Books:  Alerts from the Amazon Kindle forums - via the tireless "Happy Reader" Joyce, who is ever on the lookout on behalf of forum members.

  NOTE: The alerts are quoted from Joyce's collecting of mostly temporarily-free books.  They're *not* recommendations by anyone but are a popular, unfiltered daily set of forum release-alerts by Joyce, logged here for those who don't or can't make it to the forums.  The eBooks are often no longer free within days, sometimes, within hours.  Thanks to Joyce for gathering and organizing them for us.

The Funniest Cop Stories Ever
Author: Tom Philben
Genre: Law Enforcement
** Some language, violence, and mild s3xual situations recommended for ages sixteen and up **

DESCRIPTION: Cops are the people who see and hear it all. They work at one of the world's most dangerous jobs, but it's also one of the most entertaining. When their lives are at risk and even when they aren't cops encounter constant weirdness and stupidity in human behavior. The Funniest Cop Stories Ever collects the strangest, most amusing stories about stupid crooks, bungled crimes, and station-house banter. A true look at what life is like behind the badge, the tales in The Funniest Cop Stories Ever were collected by real-life ex-New York City policeman Scott Baker and coauthor Tom Philbin. Anecdotes are told by the real-life cops who experienced them and include: A foot chase after a dwarf who karate-kicked his girlfriend's door and assaulted her while wearing a tuxedo and carrying a violin case. A beggar who ended people's pay phone calls so he could demand their extra spare change. A narcotics bust on a guy who claimed the crack cocaine and his pants didn't belong to him.


Double Exposure
Author: Michael Lister
Genre: Mystery - Thriller

DESCRIPTION: This stand-alone thriller from Lister, author of the John Jordan series (Blood of the Lamb, etc.), opens on a suspenseful note, but deteriorates toward the end. A camera set up by Remington James to photograph wildlife in the North Florida woods captures images of a man in uniform shooting a woman to death. Soon afterward, the murderer himself, an officer with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, confronts James, who spends the rest of the book fleeing from the gunman and his colleagues. James's ability to hold his own against trained killers strains belief, and his repeated inability to restrain himself from using the radio he picked up from one of the killer's allies, despite his knowledge that doing so could reveal his location, will also try readers' patience.

EDIT TO ADD: 1:45 p.m. CST

Hollowland (The Hollows, #1)
Author: Amanda Hocking
Genre: Horror - Occult - Zombie

* Some language, violence, and mild adult situations *
DESCRIPTION: Hollowland - the first book in the young adult dystopian series The Hollows. "This is the way the world ends - not with a bang or a whimper, but with zombies breaking down the back door." Nineteen-year-old Remy King is on a mission to get across the wasteland left of America, and nothing will stand in her way - not violent marauders, a spoiled rock star, or an army of flesh-eating zombies. This is a young adult title with some language, violence, and mild sexual situations recommended for ages sixteen and up. '

NOTE: TO AVOID SPAM being posted instantly, this blog uses the "DELAY" feature.

Am often away much of the day, and postings won't show up right away. Posts done to use referrer-links may never show up.

Usually, am online enough to release comments within a day though, so the hard-to-read match-text tests for commenting won't be needed this way.

Feedback and questions are welcome. Thanks for participating.

Technical Problems?
If you're having problems leaving a Comment, Google's blogger-help asks that you clear the '' cookies on your browser's Tools or Options menu bar and that will fix the Comment-box problems (until they have a permanent fix).

IF that doesn't work either, then UNcheck the "keep me signed in" box -- Google-help says that should allow your comment to post (it's a workaround to a current bug).
Apologies for the problems.

TIP: There's a size limit. If longer than 3500 characters or so, in a text editor, make two posts out of it.
