In My Mailbox (21) and Weekly Search

This week I bought one book: Temptation by Karen Ann Hopkins. I tried to get on the tour for this book because it sounded awesome, but I didn’t “make the team.” I picked up a copy when I was in the bookstore earlier this week. Read the review here.

 Your heart misleads you.  That’s what my friends and family say.  But I love Noah. And he loves me.  We met and fell in love in the sleepy farming community of Meadowview, while we rode our horses together through the grassy fields and in those moments in each other’s arms. It should be  ROSE & NOAH forever, easy. But it won’t be. Because he’s Amish. And I’m not.

Weekly Search is a feature in which I (and you!) discuss unusual search terms that led people to this (or your) blog, and answer any (perhaps spoilerish) questions contained therein. If you are viewing this post via email, spoilers may be visible, so scroll down at your own risk.

[learn_more caption="are there chapters in novelettes?"] Though novelettes are short, it is perfectly acceptable to include chapters, since there is no minimum length to what constitutes a “chapter.” A chapter can be made up of a single sentence, and sentences can be as small as a single word, so there you go. The rules for structuring works of fiction are really more like guidelines, to quote Captain Barbosa, so feel free to change them to suit your needs. [/learn_more]

[learn_more caption="kindle versus hardcopy"] I bought my Kindle in December 2010. It has about 100 books and short stories on it right now. I’ve probably borrowed and/or bought the same number of hardcopy books since then. While I don’t see a difference in the quality of the books or the reading experience, my hardcopy books tend to get read faster than my ebooks. The reason is simple: out of sight, out of mind. An empty Kindle looks exactly the same as one with a hundred unread books on it. [/learn_more]
