Free wheeling
I don’t have a particular topic to write about this week so I’m going to do a bit of free wheeling. Hold on to your hat.
— Amazon continues to replace my default device with KINDLE LIBRARY. If you aren’t going to honor my wishes, don’t give me the option to choose!
— The Kindle Reading Challenge has been fun. I’m doing quite well according to Amazon. Shout out to my sister who reads on a device on my account.
— A major publisher announcing a contracted book will not be published because of the author’s position in a political process should scare all of us. Who really controls the decisions in these companies who are small parts of large global corporations?
— I read Joe Foss Flying Marine (99 cents), the autobiography of the first pilot to equal Eddie Rickenbacker’s American WWI record for air combat victories. Joe Foss was a patriot.


— A few weeks ago I listened to The Lake Wobegon Virus ($9.99 Kindle version) by Garrison Keillor. It’s classic Keillor with a few re-told stories to create a story for today’s pandemic times with a few laughs and the usual quirkiness. Even during these perilous times in Lake Wobegon all the women are strong, all the men are good-looking, and all the children are above average.
— The buzz is all about Virgin River and The Bridgertons series on Netflix. I read (and enjoyed) every book in each series years ago. The books were so good I have no desire to watch the film version to ruin the perfect image in my mind.
— Last fall I read four books in the Theodore Boone series by John Grisham before taking a break to read Christmas novels. I need to download the next book to learn if the guy on the golf course is convicted of murdering his wife. Great series for tweens, teens and adults.
— If you are an Audible member, there is a 2-for-1 sale through January 31. The best sale offering is the Harry Bosch Box Set which includes The Narrows, Echo Park, and The Overlook. Use one credit to buy the box set and then pick up another great listen for free in the 2-for-1 deal.
— Do not read books by Brandilyn Collins if you are in your house alone. She scares my socks off. Who’s your favorite author to keep you awake nights?
