Taking the Clean out your E-Reader Challenge!
I’ve signed up for the Clean out your E-reader Challenge
hosted by Fantasy is More Fun
and Because Reading is more fun
. The focus of the challenge is ebook freebies, whether downloaded from a retailer like Amazon or received for review through NetGalley or Edelweiss. Pirated copies don’t count and will disqualify you, but the hosts are very kindly allowing books purchased for less than $5.00. That’s great for me, because the ones I most want to read (that aren’t ARCs) were all purchased as deals rather than downloaded free.
My goal is currently set at “Spring Clean — 5 to 10 ebooks”, because I have a lot of review copies to read this month, and they won’t count them toward the challenge unless I post the review in November. Since some publishers prefer reviewers to wait until closer to publication, that rules some of my already-scheduled November reading out of the challenge.
Here are the ARCs I hope to
count toward the challenge:
- A Study in Darkness (Emma Jane Holloway)
- Candlelight Christmas (Susan Wiggs)
- Christmas in Snowflake Canyon (RaeAnn Thayne)
- A Fool’s Gold Christmas (Susan Mallery)
- Freezer I’ll Shoot (Victoria Hamilton)
- Murderous Matrimony (Joyce and Jim Lavene)
- Christmas on 4th Street (Susan Mallery)
- Miracle Road (Emily March)
- Palace of Spies (Sarah Zettel)
- A Banquet of Lies (Michelle Diener)
And here are a few non-ARC books I’d like to read if I have time:
- The Art of Detection by Laurie R. King ($0.99)
- The Sweetest Spell by Suzanne Selfors ($2.24)
- Blackberry Summer by RaeAnne Thayne ($1.99)
- Suddenly Royal by Nichole Chase ($2.79)
In addition to all those, I have 2 print ARCs I must read in November, plus 3 or 4 more I will try to get to. Phew! Wish me luck!
