    LOL an editor you are not then - editors not only care about these things but can spot them by running their eye down the page - then they make annoying red marks where you have to go fix it :)

    Having just purchased a hudl and doing a bit of looking around on ie I have found 60 books I wanted to read all free!
    I never realised there would be so many sites that was just giving great books away.

    My own first draft lol
    I'm a compulsive devourer of Kindle books and go on often to fill my boots. But 25 titles for $371 ... I can only think those are expensive titles! The whole point of Kindle is that they're supposed to be cheap, but so often they're not. My own titles are modestly priced but then fiction tends to be cheaper than non-fiction.

    I have some gift vouchers to use up so I can fill my boots right now without spending a penny. Yay!

    The books I were talking about were dead tree format. And that price came out to less than $15 per book, which is not bad considering that almost all of them are non-fiction titles.

    Recently I decided to move them to a wishlist and the wishlist now stands at 92 or so. Yikes.

    I received a $250 Amazon gift card from work some months back and it was gone in less than two days. All books. Nothing expensive.

    *sigh*

    No. My eyes were bigger than my clock.

    I will though, I will. Eventually they will fire me for insubordination and I will have plenty of free time. :)

    You willing to participate?

    I am reading way too slow. my idea of starting off with 450-500 page tomes was probably unwise.

    I don't why I thought it was a good idea to kick this off with two massive tomes.
