A batch of good mysteries! Thank you. I understand there are Sci fi lovers who aren’t mystery fans, so I try to be patient – this was MY day!
Thanks! Snagged a couple!
Also appreciated the link to the free best sellers, though I didn’t find a ton that appealed to me. One cookbook did, until I read that it was in print replica format, not reflowable, sigh.
At any rate, whether you have Kobo news or no Kobo news, I appreciate what you do here! I visit your blog most days. So even if I don’t always agree with everything you right, I always enjoy reading it!
