Today I am starting with 2984 books in my Kindle ebook collection. I am working with books purchased on August 7th, 2011.
A Good Clean, A Harsh Clean by Brian Martinez is 18 pages long and listed as a noir crime story. It has 25 reviews and an average rating of 4 stars. The reviews to this all say it’s great and that the language is wonderful. I’ll send this one to my kindle to read, hopefully soon.
Strange Neighbors by Ashlyn Chase is a 386 page vampire romance. This book has 108 reviews and an average rating of 3.5 stars. The reviews are pretty middle of the road, but the story sounds like fun. It is about an apartment building filled with various creatures. A shapeshifter, a werewolf, a vampire, two witches, and a human. One reviewer referred to it as a paranormal version of Friends. I’m in for that.
The Empty Door by ER Mason is 246 pages and listed as science fiction adventure. It has 24 reviews and an average rating of 4 stars. The reviews say it was a fine story that devolved in to a religious sermon at the end. I’ve deleted this one.
What I Learned from Being a Cheerleader by Adrianne Ambrose is 202 pages long and listed as a young adult humor sports fiction. It has 19 reviews and an average rating of 4 stars. The reviews say it is funny, even for adults. It is written in the diary entries of an 11 year old ‘geek’ that joins the cheerleading squad and is trying to figure out how her friends fit in with that new part of her life. I’m willing to give it a try at some point.
Bouquet of Flowers in a Vase, by Van Gogh by Douglas Smith is 62 pages and listed as time travel science fiction. It has 11 reviews and an average rating of 4 stars. The reviews say this story is somber, but very well written and well worth my time. The author is apparently a well known Canadian short story writer that has won some awards for his work. I’m certainly willing to give this a read.
The Days and Months We Were First Born-The Unraveling by Christopher Hunter is 136 pages and is listed as a science fiction play. It isn’t shown as a play in the description or in the reviews though. It has 56 reviews and an average rating of 3.5 stars. This is listed as part 1 in a trilogy, but it’s actually one book broken in to three parts for between $2 and $3 a section. I would much rather just pay $9 and have the full story than be tricked in to having to purchase more books to have a story with a satisfying ending of some sort even if everything isn’t wrapped up until the end of the series. This book has been deleted.
Gabby…All About Me: Beach Puppy by Lee Carey is 163 pages and listed as adventure fiction. It has 39 reviews and an average rating of 4 stars. The reviews say this a great read for dog lovers. I however an definitely not a dog lover. I’ve deleted this one.
Stormfront by MCA Hogarth is 17 pages and is listed as a spacefleet science fiction story. It has 22 reviews and an average rating of 4 stars. I’m not really in to military stories and the reviews all say the ending is abrupt and disappointing so I’ll pass on this one too.
Fiske 250 Words Every High School Graduate Needs to Know by Edward B Fiske is 179 pages and listed as a vocabulary or spelling book. It has 8 reviews and 4.5 stars. If I were going to look for a resource like this I would most likely seek out a web based list and not an ebook published 8 years ago. I’ve deleted this one.
Gentlemen’s Accord by Richard Alan Dickson is 37 pages and is listed as a science fiction and fantasy short read. It has 1 review with a 3 star rating. For this book in particular there is just not enough information for me to be interested in reading it. I’ll delete this one.
That brings us down to 2975 books in my collection.
