Amazon, here I come

I have been given an Amazon gift voucher for my upcoming b-day, and rather than fritter away the gift on cosmetics or jewelry that are guaranteed, knowing my luck, to break or dissolve within the week, I have decided to remedy the problem discussed in this post. Yes indeedy. I am going to set my sights higher than Dani’s second-hand bookstore in Jerusalem, and order some books from Amazon, and spend a ridiculous amount of money for the privilege of having them sent directly to Israel.

Sooooo, if you have just read an amazing work of fiction (I edit non-fiction for a living, so reading non-fiction for fun is tantamount to cooking at home when you’re a chef…. or something like that), do share your thoughts.

I see you are reading Sci-Fi. Yum~

I love Sci-fi. Try F. Paul Wilson,
I liked Sims and Masque. Masque was so good.

Jacob, Thanks for your suggestions. Truth is, I really am not so into science fiction. It is actually one of the few genres that I turn down as an editing project. My husband, on the other hand, LOVES science fiction, so maybe I will buy those for HIS b-day. Have a good one.

I like Heinlein and Bradbury, to some degree, but that’s about it.

Dear Sorelle,

I have recently finished Seven Blessings by Ruchama King. I recommend it heartily.

I remain,

Very Sincerely Yours,

Jacob, you’re right about the sales staff. I just always head over to this one shelf where I know my favorite books will be, and block out the rest of the world.
