    Ok, but don't eat any chocolate chip cookies while you are reading. You have to pay close attention when eating cookies, unlike the poor victim in my recommend, LOL!!

    @Denise Happyfeet , do you have Kindle? I have a reason for asking. :)

    And @Ruby Begonia , I see that Kindle only offers two Sharon Kahn ebooks, and they're $16.99 each.... so a bit pricey for my blood. They look very good, though!

    I have to look this up again, but I think Barnes and Noble, for my Nook Tablet, allows me to share each book one time. I have 103 books so far. So, if anyone has a Nook, or I think I can even share onto a kindle, I can so some "give-aways". I don't know how it works, so I'll check. There's a software called Calibre, that consolidates all your "library" for you, in one place. And there is a place on that, where folks have uploaded tons of free reads as well. So nice of people. I will show you below. I just found it the other day. It's a free program, and it will even convert Kindle books to epubs, or other format readable on Nooks. Also, here is a link to a calibre reading forum. Where it says e-books in menu, that is where you can download free books folks share with others;)

    Don't forget about your library ladies. I find some of the best "reads" that I can check out digital copies using an app called Overdrive, and then plug in your own library, wherever you have a library card, there are tons of books you can check out through library2go.com. I read so much, I would be broke if I had to buy them all. I have bought quite a bit though over the years since I got my Nook, about 2011;)

    If you need any help, I will be more than happy to help you;) denise

    Two of my fave publishers are Guideposts, and Steeple Hill. Both have some very, good series, and yes, some are kinda mushy but I try to skip those. Although, many still have people falling in love, but that isn't the "center" or plot of the story;)
