Books By Mail

So I'm totally in a reading frenzie these days. I've read the Twilight Saga 2 complete times through (including the partial Midnight Sun posted on Stephenie Meyer's website) and have read Twilight and Breaking Dawn (the first and last book of the series) 3 times each. Yeah, still totally love that series.

But I've also been reading some other books too. Some vampire books, some aliens, some warewolves, some this, some that, all fiction and paranormal in some fashion. However, I have started The Shack by William Young which is a man who spends a couple of days with God in, you guessed it, a shack. Anyway, just finished the forward and am looking forward to getting started with this book.

Seeing as how up until tonight I was unemployeed I didn't exactly have a lot of money just hanging around for me to spend on books. I tried my local library. I won't say it sucks because my momma said if you can't say anything nice then don't say anything at all... so I'll not say anything at all. Then my brilliant, smart,and wonderful friend Abby Normal (you know how I love to protect the names of the innocent- she knows who she is) suggested this website called

It is wonderful. It's like Netflicks, but for books. You sign up for how many books you want to recieve at a time and then for a monthly fee you they'll send the books on your queue for you to read. You read them and send them back in the postage paid envelopes and a few days later you get another book! How cool is that!

The ONLY part that sucks is the days you have to wait while books are in the mail. But I guess that's the reason you should sign up for 2 or more books. That way you're reading the next book while you're waiting for the one that's in the mail.

This system is SO much easier then spending $80 a week for a half dozen books that barely last you a month and then take up a ton of space in your house. Now if you get a book that you fall in love with and never ever ever want to part with you just email the company and tell them what book you just have to keep forever and they'll let you know how much it'll cost ya, if you're ok with that they'll just charge your card and you live happily ever after.

The End.

Uncle Joe thinks I can't write a post with using the word "baby" in it. And so I had to make sure this post had "baby" in a couple of times even though it had nothing to do with my "baby".

This is a FANTASTIC idea! I can't believe I've never thought about doing this before!

Uncle Joe said...

I just read a book about a guy that spent a couple of days in a shack with a vampire.

It didn't turn out to well in the end.

so how's the baby?

I read The Shack this summer. Was very inspired and had a paradigm for a while. It was very cool.

Yay for Hastings! I'll have to come and see you.

I like the idea of the Netflix for books cuz I'm running outta room on my shelves for new books.

Have a great weekend!

Jackie, it's awesome! Hope you enjoy it too!

Uncle Joe, oh you know. He's perfect!

Cindy, I'm really looking forward to it. A couple of my friends are going to read it too so we're going to start around the same time in a few days. Can't wait! (Luckily I have two other books to read in the meantime)

I'm laughing at Uncle Joe's comment.

Composing self...

I loved The Shack but I have a good library, I guess.

I'm impressed with how you snuck in 'baby'. I wondered when I breast-fed my kids if they were part vampire. nom, nom, nom....
