Stacking the Shelves - November 3, 2013

I just had the most spectacular day!!

I have been so busy working, getting ready for Halloween and doing Halloweeny things that I finally had a weekend free and what did I do?  I vegged.  Yesterday I was a total slug, but today!  Ah!  Today was a spectacular day!!

I actually spent the day reading a book!!  That's right!!  You heard it.  A book.  A real honest to goodness book!  I started it last evening and finished it today.  My  trusty sidekick, Egg, was laying on my lap the whole time, effectively pinning me under the covers.  Can't say I mind.  It was glorious!!  But now the day is shot.

Ah.  Who am I kidding?  I wasn't going to do much of anything anyway.  Hubby was away this weekend playing in the woods in his new satyr costume having a blast.

The mailman was unkind to me this week, but I don't care.  I read a book!

It's been a while.  You can understand my excitement.

Anyway, to make up for the lack of physical mail, I was busy ordering Kindle books.  I saw a link on Amazon called Kindle Match.  I had heard that Amazon was going to be doing this, but didn't realize they already had the website updated.

For those of you that don't know, Amazon is making available a Kindle edition of the physical copies purchased.  The prices range from $0.00 to $2.99.  Awesome!  There are a lot of books I bought that I haven't gotten to.  I love converting to Kindle.

There is a button on the KindleMatch page that will actually pull up your available copies.  Beware, though.  I believed that this would apply to all the books I bought as long as there was a Kindle edition.  That is not the case.  It only applies to some books.  So the button showing me my available books was time saving and it was a much shorter list than I anticipated.

So, that mixed in with my other Kindle purchases made up for being shunned by my mailman.

  1. Excellent haul! I'm sure you already realize that ebooks are dangerous, as you can't see them so don't really realize how many you have. Fun and easy, but dangerous!

    And the sentence "Hubby was away this weekend playing in the woods in his new satyr costume" almost made me fall off my chair laughing! The visual....oh my!

    Glad your day was awesome! I read a book too! Isn't it glorious? :D

  2. Yes, the danger of the ebook. Especially now that Amazon is offering the KindleMatch on some of my purchases. I don't mind paying a couple bucks to get the Kindle version if I haven't already read the book.

    The issue, though, is that the ebooks are really starting to pile up. I want to read them, but I just don't know where to begin.

    Then I've been downloading samples because more ebooks are exactly what I need. I probably have about 50 samples to read. That takes time, you know?
