Unfortunately, I don't see it available in Kindle format.
I've just reserved Hard Magic in dead tree format at my public library. I hope it's good!

Excellent. Am I going to be spending all my Kindle dollars in one place soon?

Dawg, have you read A Bone in the Throat?

Yes. It's a dead tree, so it was awhile ago, but entertaining.

Maybe, I hope you like stories about Djinn. They are fluffy reading and i thought a lot of fun.

Its available on Kindle. I'm just not sure how many by one author I want to take. I might save it for later.

I'm open to almost any genre. I LOVE light and fluffy. My feeling is that I do enough heavy reading to learn about all the stuff I need at work so when I read for pleasure I don't want to have to analyze anything too much. Hit me over the head with stuff please. I studiously avoid anything Oprah recommends simply as too much "work". However, she's often recommended something AFTER I've read it. ;)

1. Free books and library books - Kindle library books are not yet available in Canadian libraries. When Mobi books were available I was quite adept at reformatting them to work on my Kindle. My Kindle is already loaded with as many classics and other freebies as I want. I'm all over "free" and many of the free books are good reads.

Are you sure that your library doesn't have Kindle books? The libraries in SE Ontario do...

Dune got read many moons ago. Could be worth a reread if they're cheap on Kindle though. Good thought. Thanks.
"The Guns of The South" is an alternative history about our civil war. The front cover (Hard Cover) has a picture of Robert E. Lee holding an AK47. It is about an attempt by the Afrikcaaners Resistence Movement (AWB) to change the outcome of our civil war in order to keep slavery alive.

Then you are very lucky. Can you hook me up with one of them? I'll pay for a card. Can we pretend I live with you? Library name please? All the Overdrive information I can find insists that Kindle books are US libraries only.

Oooooh! I get it now! Hmmm. Not sure how I feel about that. I'll look it up.

Just curious. Is there a fee for a library card in Canada? In my town you have to be bristling with proofs of id and address before you can get a card, but no fee for the card.

Have you read the Diane Mott Davidson series featuring caterer and crime solver Goldy Bear Schulz? I think they are great fun.
