I think this is the first Sunday Salon I have taken part in since Christmas. Where does the time go?
Santa, also known as my beloved bought me a Kindle for Christmas. Which is pretty good for a man who refuses categorically to buy me books! So, I have been exploring the wonders and depths of Amazon and Smashwords for their e-books and in particular the free e-books. I have been alerted to some real wonders and new authors.
I spotted a new series by Barbara Sullivan. Unravelling Ada: A Quilted Mystery Novel, reviewed HERE and a second book in the series, Ripping Abigail, which is my current e-book read. I do hope there is going to be a third book.
I have also reviewed two very different books - First this e-book Crime Fiction for Beginners by Gervase Shorter reviewed HERE and paperback - Masters: Art Quilts Volume 2 narrated by Martha Sielman; that review is HERE
I also caught up on a much over due review for the Federation of Family History Society's book club - Tracing Your Channel Island Ancestors. This was an informative read, not just in terms of genealogical information, but also the complexities of the administration of the Islands.
I have also delved into cookery e-books. Some are best viewed on my iPad, but that is about my preference as a reader. First up was Master Chef Tom's Burns Night by Tom Bridge. Burns night is of course just a few days away.
Just after Christmas stumbled across a rather interesting collection of Japanese Ukiyo prints by Daniel and Denise Ankele. Mainly prints of flowers, but there are a few views. A fascinating collection and of course best viewed on a colour viewer such as PC or iPad or alike.
Well, that it is it for another week. I am hoping this week to complete my current e-book read and crack on with a few reviews that I have agreed to do. So many books, so little time!
