Good day to all who join our thread today, either by reading or posting, and hopefully all by clicking on some good books! So excited that tonight will be our book discussion of *NOT FREE NOW* Gingerbread Man by Maggie Shayne. When it is discussion time, a link to a new discussion thread will be posted so that we can chat about our latest group read. For me, that's what is great about fall - the chance to get cozy, find a fuzzy blanket (and fuzzy socks), a nice fireplace, your favorite beverage, and getting lost in a great book.

Some FB&C information . . .

Stealing Liberties (Task Force 125) - Mystery

With hefty bounties on Vince, Sarah and Will's heads the team has to be creative in finding a way to do their job as well as stay one step ahead of the powerful man who wants them dead. The way they choose is creative but it is also deceptive, inconvenient and very dangerous. A new guy who isn't at all what he seems must be brought into the fold.
What happens when people start Stealing Liberties is likely to turn everyone's life upside down.
But that may not be such a bad thing after all.

Other books in this series:

Freedom's Promise (Task Force 125) Lisa Pietsch
A Taste of Liberty (Task Force 125) Lisa Pietsch
The Path to Freedom (Task Force 125) Lisa Pietsch

Love the quote on LO - we all need to slow down and ... breathe ♥
The doggie on the lounger is just an extra reminder to us all and a beautiful piece of artwork ;-)

Ok, I had a question: I have a kindle with the keyboard on it, that's supposed to hold 3,500 books on it.... So why do they tout about the amount of books that it can hold if the kindle slows way down if you have too many books on it? That's really disappointing, I went for that one so I could have as many books as possible, but now I'm paranoid that I'll hurt it f I store too many books on it.

Ok, so I still haven't heard back about that job interview I went for, but I have another interview lined up on Monday!!!! YEA!!! It's just for a dollar shop, but it pays money and that's the main thing.

So how has everyone been while I've been gone?
I'm slowly making my way thru the emailed-posts but I'll get there!!!

Kathleen, all those books won't actually hurt the KK, but it will slow it down considerably. Think about how you feel after a big meal. After you read your daily 100 books [ :) I am kidding, but you are a fast reader] just delete them off the KK. The deleted books are still in your Kindle Cloud so you aren't losing them. Still saying prayers for your job hunt.

@ Kathleen
So glad that you are back and with good news to boot - exciting about all these job opportunities - I just know that the right job is out there waiting for you ;-)
Dogs and Turtle has the answer for you about the number of books a kindle can hold without getting too overweight to be able to turn the pages fast - with your reading habits be thankful that you chose the KK3 in the first place - most books

Good morning, afternoon, evening all,

The fall is arrived here, lots of wind, so far no rain today.

I have one of my WL: THE CASE OF THE PIG IN THE EVENING SUIT (Dumfries Detective Trilogy). I think NL has mentioned this one earlier?!

Have a good day all

@ Kathleen, good luck with your job-interviews

Legend of the Sundancer (Sundancer (Book One))
Journey back in time to the birth of a legend that lives on in the minds and hearts of those that yearn to remember...

Sacred red rocks offer shelter to the people that have banded together in an effort to avoid capture by their enemies. The Ma'leiki warriors are feared by the roving bands of the land and they are as dangerous as the harsh desert sands that thirst for life-giving water.
Shale is a warrior that stands apart from those that he has been chosen to lead. Denoa is a young woman that dares to follow her heart while seeking peace for her village. The simple way of life that she has always known is shifting, balance has been lost and it must be restored.
Against the backdrop of beautiful sandstone and desert sand one man stands between two worlds and he is forced to make a decision that will set him apart from all that he has ever known. Fierce battles are waged, friendships are torn apart and entire bands annihilated. Men that were once merely hunters, must stand as warriors and protectors of their people if there is to be any hope of survival.
