The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviewer and it’s a chance to showcase new books and re-cap your week of blogging.
Happy Sunday, Everyone!
A few weeks ago, this weekend was looking all booked up. Then a test I had originally scheduled got pushed back. So then my hubs and I decided to do the much needed landscaping in the front yard (when you pull out all the landscaping, apparently you have to replace it with something, go figure). We were all set with our topsoil and mulch deliveries Friday morning.
And then it rained….
So now I sit on my ass doing gobs of blog maintenance 🙂
Bloggiesta is an event I’ve been participating in since probably 2012. It’s an outstanding way to make me sit down, make a list of all those nagging little blog tasks floating in my head, and by God actually doing them.
When I started blogging, the challenges blew my mind. The fact that fellow bloggers would share their knowledge and skills for noobs like me amazed me. I have no skills so I have nothing to share but soon I hope to share some of my “tricks”. Those posts are coming up in November and December 😉
Check out my Bloggiesta progress on my start up post HERE.
How much are you willing to pay for an eBook?
This week I ran across a book that was the same price as it’s physical copy. The book wasn’t even written by a mainstream, highly popular author. The eBook cost $9.99! I’ve never paid that much for an electronic book! I’m so disappointed in the publisher – I’m not really disappointed, just stubborn. I understand the cost of publishing a book is the same either way (Economics 301?), but c’mon, it’s got to be a wee bit cheaper to not have to use up all those trees for paper, right?
I’m curious, what’s the highest price you will pay for an eBook? Will you even pay over the cost of the physical book?
Bright Shiny New Books
I want it noted in my “record” somewhere that a certain favorite publisher of mine loaded up Edelweiss this past week and I DID NOT download a book at all!! At least from them…
I LOVED Sparrow Beckett’s first book in the Masters Unleashed series and I’m trying to hold myself back from jumping Ambrose, I mean Ambrose’s book. Jaci Burton’s book is my victory at finally getting a review book of hers while also finding a Ho Ho Ho Read-a-Thon book. Thank you tons to Penguin Group!
I’m a loooooong time fan of Karen Chance but she doesn’t publish quickly ∗snort∗. I’ve been waiting on Pritkin’s rescue book FOR-EV-ER so I’m relieved to get this review copy on my reader (understatement). Blackhearts is a book I saw last weekend and had to go grab 🙂 Of course, thanks go to both Simon & Schuster and Penguin Group!
Finally got this one in my hands… literally. Why am I embarrassed to go through the grocery checkout with this book?
As my son says, “See ya on the flip side!”
