Lately I've been trying to read real books instead of e-books, so I started Game of Thrones
. Loving it, and I don't feel as guilty taking it in to the tub with me as I do my phone.
One day between Christmas and New Year's, however, I decided to not
ignore my daily BookBub email.
I downloaded Truth or Beard
. And, then I kept going because the books were awesome. Laughed out loud. A lot. I've read all of the Beards
that have been published to date.
(Synopsis of all: Bearded Brothers (7? of them) all get their own romance story. They also have one sister. She doesn't have a beard.)
And then in one of the more recent ones, the heroine's brother and his girlfriend come to visit, and I'm thinking, these people are familiar
. And wouldn't you know it, yep, I have their
story, which is #1 in the Knitting in the City
series by the same author. I LOVED that one! (Neanderthal Seeks Human)
It turns out that the Bearded Brothers' sister's love story is #4 of the Knitting
series, and #0.5 of the Bearded
series, so I re-read the first of the Knitting,
and the 2nd, which I also had.
I don't know why I stopped reading the Knitting
. Maybe it had to something to do with the price tag. I have a vague memory of feeling a bit meh
about the enjoyment vs. price ratio of book #2 (book #1 was free, so, worth it!).
But after reading all of the Beards,
and maybe because a lot of stuff has been going on in life lately (can we say "avoidance"?), and maybe because I got an Amazon gift card in my stocking, I just kept clicking that pesky orange button to buy with 1 single click.
I might be a bit sorry when I look at my credit card later, but not that sorry. I've enjoyed myself. And I've successfully procrastinated on at least three projects. Yay, me!
Bottom line: I found the Beards
to be worth their $7.99 tags, but if I hadn't been in avoidance mode, I would have balked at it. $6-7 would feel much better. Knitting,
well, like I said, procrastination seemed to be a NY Resolution for me, so I did it, but those ones I'd say would be a good $5-6 book.
Regardless, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
