BAAA© was originally formed by several avid readers bordering on having an addiction to seeking out great kindle books for the least amount of cost. We ventured on into helpful tips. BAAA© stands for "Book Addiction A-holics Anonymous." Feel free to join us in our discussions and recommend good kindle books you have read or downloaded. We love free books.

And here we are! I put a link to the original BAAA thread on my iPod home screen when I was on my train trip. Somehow or the other it's icon got changed to a Tim Horton coffee cup - which I loved. Friends and coffee, what better?

Thanks Sandra and Dix too for the link...

Since this will be at the top of the new thread - I thought I'd put in a link back to where we came from - some 10,000 posts ago...

Hello, Lovelies and thanks to our Sandra.
Thanks for the link.
Have a wonderful Sunday.

Thanks for the post. I certainly qualify as a Kindle addict. I've bookmarked the thread and will join in the discussion.

I don't know what has been discussed in the old thread but as my first contribution, I recommend that all readers of fantasy and science fiction check out the Baen Free Library:, as well as all of the other ebooks which have been previously released on their free CD's. These are available for download with Baen's permission:

Hi, Sandra, Dix, Linda (Ladyhawk), and Avid R. Glad I found your new site.

Welcome to the club, James and Folina.

Guess I'll take the time during my first post in our new home to tell my friends that I'll be out of touch off and on starting Friday evening. New travel adventure coming up. I'll back full time the evening of October 13th.

I know we all LOVE free - but eReaderIQ's under $1 screen has some pretty good books from the last century that you might want to consider for your collection.
Most of you still have lots of DTBs - but I downsized my books into oblivion 10 years ago. And I am sort of getting some of my old faves back as Kindle books.
I picked up
Last Exit to Brooklyn (An Evergreen book) it is almost 50 years old but is as raw and gritty as it was back in the day when it was banned in several countries and denounced by the defenders of decency everywhere.

Hey there, Folina! I just had what is probably the most fun half hour I'm going to have all day -- reading your reviews. Welcome to our group!

Dix says:
Fantastic find, Peg. Got it!

Doug: Your fall cruise, right? Where will this voyage take you?

R. Doug says:
Dix: We're going to L.A. From there we're catching a cruise to San Francisco, Santa Barbara, Catalina, Ensenada (Mex.), back to L.A.

Lol! Glad you enjoyed them; I try to be honest.

Thanks for the welcome. :0)

I just finished The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins. Excellent FREE detective story from 1860's England. A bit of romance, some family drama, and lots of mystery.

Well, with the help of Dix, I got here. But because inquiring minds want to know, how did the rest of you find this place? Good to see so many of you. But where is Granny? And Lala and Mitford and Happy Camper? How about Nadine and G.G and Jennifer? Actually we haven't heard from some of you in quite a while.

Thank you Peachy Pat - I had forgotten all about Wilkie Collins. And welcome to our group. 15 or so of us have been together for 10,000 posts - We frequently digress from our primary purpose - acquiring yet another book - so welcome. So about this Chuck - 2 or 4 legs? That's all we need to know right now.

Hey Doug: When will you be in SF? I should take you and Your lady for a welcome drink. I just got back home myself from 3 months on the East Coast. Soooooo happy to sleep in my own bed last night and wake to the beautiful San Francisco Sunshine.

Hi newcomers......We BAAAers, and you if you choose to be one, DO NOT click on the "do you think this post adds to the discussion?" We feel that that all posts are important and contribute to our discussion. Sometimes, our discussions take on a life of its own and flourish. We discuss a multitude of please refrain from clicking on the Yes and No choices. We have become a close-knit extended family....a mispocha (Carol, I got the spelling wrong again.)

We're glad to have newbies....just settle right in and become one of us. GO BAAAers! :o) ♥♥♥

Chuck has 4 legs. His picture is in my profile. His full name is Chuck Norris. He is 6 pounds of awesome Chihuahua. He's a bit of a mama's boy and loves his blankie.

Folina.....I loved the "24" series an Kiefer Sutherland is wonderful as Jack Bauer. I liked Chloe, too. She had pouting down to a science. :o)

Dix says:
Thanks for pointing that out, Sandra, about the up/down votes. Just as one example, why on earth would ANYBODY feel the need to leave a negative on Peachy Pat's post stating she enjoyed reading The Woman in White? Sheesh! If I were to put the word "stupid" here, think I'd get deleted? AGAIN?

Peachy Pat, I just added that one to my library, thanks to your tip.

We're having a late lunch over here. See you all later.
