Holiday Favorite Treat Poll
We hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday season and had an opportunity to relax with friends and family and read, too. In our informal poll of your favorite holiday treat, fudge and frosted sugar cookies were popular choices. Favorite write-in responses were gingerbread, divinity and pumpkin pie. If you enjoyed as many treats as we did, you had a wonderful, sugar-filled holiday.
 
100 Best-Selling Books for 2011
Amazon announced the 100 best-selling books for 2011 and several cheap reads were in the top 30. One book, Ascend by Amanda Hocking, is no longer available as a cheap read as Ms. Hocking has re-published the book through a traditional publisher. A Kindle Single that is 40 pages long is one of the top “books.” Is that fair? Should a book have a minimum length to qualify?
Nine cheap reads from the top 30 that are still available for less than $3 each are below. The prices are as low as 79 cents up to $2.99 each. Only two of the books are $2.99 and most are 99 cents.
