Today I am dealing with books acquired between August 4, 2011 and August 7, 2011. I am starting today’s clear out with 2990 books in my collection.
Water by Andrea Dale. This book is no longer for sale on Amazon, at least not at the link I had in my content and devices list on Amazon. It is an 18 page short story in the erotica genre. It has 10 reviews and an average rating of 2.5 stars. The reviews all say it’s way too short to be called anything more than a scene. It doesn’t sound worth my time at this point and I’ve deleted it.
Elliot and the Goblin War by Jennifer A Nielsen. This book is 198 pages and is listed as a humorous children’s fantasy adventure. There are 35 reviews and an average rating of 4.5 stars. The description of this book is a warning about all of the children who didn’t survive the reading of this book previously. It’s pretty funny. It sounds really fun and I’m hoping to read it to my daughter at some point in the future.
Equinox: Six Declinations by Richard Freeland. This book is 157 pages and is listed as a horror anthology. It has 11 reviews and an average rating of 4 stars. This anthology has six short stories. I’m torn on this one. I can’t really handle horror. It gives me nightmares. But some of the stories in this collection sound really intriguing. I’ll hold on to it for now, but don’t plan to read it soon.
The Ghost of a Flea by John Brinling. This book is 444 pages and is listed as both a ghost thriller and an erotic mystery. It has 23 reviews and an average rating of 3.5 stars. It is about a man named Roger whose friend is murdered and who is now being chased by a drug cartel for an address book he doesn’t have. I’m not really interested in this and will be deleting it.
Texas Hold Him by Lisa Cooke. This book is 305 pages and is listed as a historical romantic comedy. It has 78 reviews and an average rating of 4 stars. The description didn’t tell me very much. The main character wants to learn poker to save her home, but her teacher has other ideas. The reviews say the dialog especially is very funny and that’s enough for me to keep it around even if I don’t read it soon.
Hawks Mountain by Elizabeth Sinclair is 190 pages and listed as a military romance. It has 107 reviews and a 4 star average rating. I don’t like military romances so I’ll be deleting this one.
The Labyrinth by Kenneth McDonald. This book is 56 pages and is listed as a fantasy. It has 19 reviews and an average rating of 3.5 stars. It is about young wizards that enter a magical contest in a labyrinth. The description sounds good. The reviews are promising. I’ll keep it for now and send it to my phone to maybe read soon.
Expiration Date by Jeff Thomason. This is a 14 page science fiction story. It has 10 reviews and an average rating of 2.5 stars. The reviews all say there is no ending to this. I’m not okay with that. I’ve deleted it.
The Rainbow by D H Lawrence. This book is 344 pages and is listed as a reference book. It has 36 reviews and an average rating of 3.5 stars. This is a book that doesn’t have a description and I’m not interested enough to search for one. I’ve deleted this one.
Memoirs of a Snowflake by Joe Vasicek. This is an 11 page short story listed as metaphysical fiction. It has 23 reviews and an average rating of 4.5 stars. This story follows a snowflake as it dies and is reborn as far as I can gather from the description. I’ll give it a shot for only 11 pages and great reviews. I’ve sent this one to my phone as well.
I’m ending today with 2983 books left in my collection and two new short books sent to my phone.
