I am but honestly I'm not goodreads savy. I don't really use it much so my navigation of the site is not very good.

Oh this is so cool. I'll pop over and send a friend request to you guys now. Hi

You don't have to accept if you don't want to.

I hope no one takes offense by the books that I've read. I read a wide variety of genres. So I'm warning you now. Twisted Evil

Okay, I sent friend requests. But Greencat, I couldn't find you. I'm not sure what name you use on GR's.

I've been trying to motivate myself to start making Christmas gifts (crocheted scarves and hats, mostly) and can't aeem to get in the mood. Maybe a couple Christmas shorts / novellas will help.

Got any stories in mind, because I'm game! Which ones do you have pc?

Psst, pc, I *love* your goodreads bookshelves! Glad you found me. heart

I've decided my first Christmas read is Christmas Moon by Elizabeth Lane

Anything can happen under a Christmas Moon...

Pregnant, unwed and down on her luck, history teacher Emma Carlyle is facing the worst Christmas of her life. Needing some research for her master’s thesis on legendary Wyoming lawman J.D. McNulty, she makes a Christmas Eve drive to South Pass City, where J.D. was buried. Heading home, she loses her way in a storm. After her car vanishes, she ends up in 1870, half-frozen and in labor, on the doorstep of a remote mountain cabin. When J.D. himself opens the door with a pistol in one hand and a bottle of whiskey in the other...well, let’s just say that sparks start flying. These two lost souls are clearly meant for each other. But there’s one problem. Emma has studied everything about J.D.--and she knows he has only a few weeks to live.

I started it last night and so far it's pretty good.

I wanted to read a book called Sweet Inspiration by Penny Watson but I couldn't find it anywhere so I wrote the author or goodreads and she sent me a PM and offered me the PDF copy because it's out of book/ebook right now. So I emailed her and she sent me the book. I am going to read that one next. Wasn't that just awesome of her?

Penny Watson sounds like a sweetheart!

Christmad Moon sound good too, I'll pick it up tonight. Maybe prop the kindle up and do a little crocheting while I read. That way, I can blame my mistakes on the book.

Christmas Moon was really good 4.5 stars for me but it wasn't a total Christmas book. It was still good either way.

I was a bit anxious to read Penny Watsons book. I kept thinking if this book sucks what will I do? I've never been given a book before by an author and if it stunk how could I write a review without sounding like a jerk? But no worries there I started last night and didn't want to put it down. It's really good. Funny, cute, romantic. Yup there's even some smexy! It's total Christmas with Santa, elves and the village. If the sex was toned down I could totally see this as a tv movie for abc family or the hallmark channel. Which I will totally write in my goodreads review when I'm finished with the book. smile I know I'll read the next book in the series for sure.

Starbrites, You are never going to believe this. Earlier I said I have two Christmas books that I purchased last year that I keep meaning to read but I haven't? Well, guess who they are both by! Yep, you guessed it. I have Sweet Magik and Sweet Inspiration by Penny Watson. roflmao

That was so cool that she gave you a copy. What a sweetheart!

Christmas Moon sounds really good. I'm adding it to by TBR list.

Dopple - I'm glad you took a look at my GR's shelves. I like adding to people's TBR piles. It makes mine not seem so bad. One of these days, I need to clean my shelves up. I think they are a little messy. But it won't be today.

That's funny! The first was really good. I loved it. I have started the second book and so far it's good but I haven't gotten to far into it yet. Yes, that was really nice of her.

Christmas Moon was really good. I'm really addicted to time travel romances so it was right up my alley.

I have never used Fictionwise before. Do they have good deals or something? I have used a few places but that was not one of them.

You don't know about Fictionwise??? Oh my. You are going to heart it.

I have a kindle so I'm not sure how it works with a Nook (I'm not sure which e-reader you have.) But it's owned by Barnes and Noble.

They do not have every book like Amazon. But they have a lot. I don't remember ever seeing books from Penguin or Siren publishing. Every week, they offer a different sale amount. So never purchase anything from them without a code. Like I said, there's one every week. About every 3 months they offer a large code, either 50%, 55% or 60% off. I keep adding to my wishlist on their site and then when they have the large code, I purchase a ton of books. But Samhain books are not included in their discounts.

Right now the sale amount is 30% off. So I just checked and Christmas Moon's list price is $4.99. But with the discount, it's only $3.49. Also, every Monday, they offer books that are new to their site for 15% off so you would get 15% then 30% off.

A book will be available on Amazon first. Then about 2-6 weeks later, it will be available on Fictionwise.

Take a look at the site and if they have anything you want, create an account (it's free and easy). Then create a wishlist.

I'll let you know when the next good sale is and you can have fun shopping! twirling

It actually wasn't that bad...but like someone else already commented...it was like reading 2 seperate books in one.

I have not read anything since Sunday. Sigh, instead I picked up The Walking Dead season 2 from the library and I've been watching that all week. I'm loving the show but I'm having book withdrawls.

Oh, while I was at the library, I picked up four more books. I really need to get busy.

I love the Walking Dead - It's worth a slowdown in the reading.

I thought it was going to be really bad. But everyone kept telling me to watch it. I'm glad I did.

The first half of the second season was really slow. Not much happened. But then, it just took off and I was so glad that I was watching it on DVD. I could just click next episode, and watch. I stayed up way to late every night watching this show. But it was so worth it. very happy
