Reading For FREE On My Kindle

I love books , hold them in my hands books.

For 15 years we owned 1 to 2 used bookstores before retiring. .

I have put off buying a kindle until two weeks ago.  I went down fighting the old bookstore logic of

wanting to fight the kindle since it is hurting brick and mortar bookstores.

This winter we are spending our time in the sun and warmth of Nevada.

Times spent in the afternoon by the pool reading books.

I had loaded the amazon kindle on my phone so I could find reasonable books as we traveled.

Problem is sitting in the sun I could not see my screen to read.

Long story short my hubby accidentally spilled water on his lap top.  Off to the geeks at best buy

to see if they could help us.  Answer was buy a new lap top or be frugal and buy a key board to

connect to hubby computer.  After looking at the prices of new lap tops we decided to put off buying

him or both of us new computers since our goal is to pay off our van and build up our savings

account to 3 to 6 months of our monthly income.

On the way to check out I just happened to spot the kindle white page and my sweet hubby twisted

my arm to buy it.

I am in my glory enjoying my white page kindle.  Sitting by the pool or laying in bed late at night

while hubby sleeps to read just a little more before I doze off.

So I am on the look out for thrifty books to read and FREE is even better.

I am paying for some of my favorite authors but filling my kindle with free reads also.

Today I have found and down loaded a FREE romantic suspense called the Lake House by

Debra Burroughs.  The following is from Amazon.

About the Author

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Debra Burroughs can be found most days sitting in front of her computer in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, dreaming up and writing exciting murder mysteries with a delicious twist of romance. Her characters are rich and the stories are full of compelling suspense and real romance. If you're looking for graphic violence and explicit sex scenes, these are not the books for you, but if you're looking for stories with real romance that will entertain you, grab your attention, touch your heart, and leave you wanting more, dive into one of her captivating books.

My other FREE book today is a historical novel based on a true story of a young woman.
Push Not The River by James Conroyd Martin.

PUSH NOT THE RIVER is based on the true eighteenth century diary of Anna Maria Berezowska, a Polish countess who lived through the rise and fall of the historic Third of May Constitution. Vivid, romantic, and thrillingly paced, it paints the emotional and unforgettable story of the metamorphosis of a nation--and of a proud and resilient young woman.

The reason I want to read this historical book is because my ancestor came from this area around this 

to the United States.  It should give me a peek into the past of what was happening in the area 

my ancestor lived in.  

If either book interests you go and grab it while it is FREE.  Be sure to look at the price to make sure it 

is still FREE.  If you have not by the kindle you can go to Amazon and find the app to down load the 

kindle on your phone or computer.

Making Money Monday On eBay Selling Vintage Barbie Dolls

This last couple weeks we have been busy selling on eBay. Postcards, Photos and Barbie Items.
I am not a real expert on Barbies but I can identify a vintage barbie doll.
This last week or so I have sold three vintage barbie dolls.

Another Barbie we sold this month was a 1960s brunette Barbie with bendable knees. She sold for $24.95 and the new owner is very happy with her.

The last barbie was a real treasure that I had been holding on to for a couple years. This month I thought was a perfect time to sell her on eBay.  She is a 1958 Blond Pony Tail Barbie that we sold after several bids to $150.50.

The last to sell was a a 1960s Twist and Turn Barbie Doll. I listed at $14.95 and it was bid up to $23.50. Shipped out today for the new owner.

As of today the 14th of March we have sold $330.21 on eBay and have passed February sales.

Will be keeping busy and hope to have a good month of sales.

Thanks for stopping by Grace
