Catching up with Old Book Friends

Been loading up my Kindle and reading a whole bunch of old Jayne Ann Krentz/Amanda Quick titles from the nineties. Have been reminded of why I fell in love in the first place with romances.

She tells her core story with such charm and weaves in the historical stuff seamlessly so that it doesn’t burden the story. Well, shoot, she does a lot of things fabulously, but I’m always amused by her ability to pull out some quirky historical detail and then center her story around that historical fact.

Her Regencies are just. . . delicious fun. I’d forgotten how much fun.

  1. I have to admit when I got my Kindle I did the same thing – I purchased all my favorite books, then I went and bought ones I always wanted to read, but never had the time to browse in the bookstore or the library for. Taking my Kindle on my cruise was the ultimate luxury – I could read as much as I wanted and all my favorites and only have to carry this fabulous invention. Enjoy yours. Just so you know, I also sent all my novels to my Kindle email and then I could read my own books, edit them on my Kindle and then review the notes when I got home to put them on my computer. A cool perk.

      I haven’t done that, yet–sending my own work to the KINDLE. I’ve heard from someone else how helpful that is. I’ve had mine for several years, so it’s the original version. It’s taken me a while to move out of total Luddite mode, but now that I have, I don’t go anywhere without mine. I love uploading a book in the middle of the night, say 3 a.m. if I need a reading fix! Totally decadent!
