    Friday Freebies

    Happy Independence Day Weekend! I hope you'll find a time to fix yourself a glass of lemonade (or whatever your favorite iced drink is) and find a cool, shady spot to lose yourself for in a story for a little bit. Here are a few freebies I found to add to my Kindle this week.

    Review: IQ Circuit

    I'm a huge proponent of off-screen activities for road trips. It's hard to create family memories if everyone's focus is on their individual screens. For that reason, I'm always on the lookout for fun travel games and activity books. IQ Circuit is one such game I received for review from Timberdoodle.

    12 Books for the 4th of July

    The 4th of July isn't--thank goodness!--a holiday for gifts or passing out candy like so many have evolved into. It's a midsummer day off that, for us, usually involves family, friends, and doing something outdoors. The perfect opportunity to think about and appreciate our freedoms as Americans.

It was 280 miles and we ended that part in Spokane.

    Review: Dusk’s Darkest Shores

    If you’re a fan of Regency romance novels you’ll not want to miss Dusk’s Darkest Shores by Carolyn Miller. I went through a phase a number of years ago where I read Regency romances voraciously. At this stage of my life I enjoy more of a mix of genres but I do find myself picking up a Regency now and…

    Friday Freebies: Beach Read Edition

    Time to start loading up the Kindle with some beach reads. Do you ever sit on the beach to read? I don't. Or at least not very often. Mainly because I rarely go to the beach. Still, there's a certain type of book that's perfect for summer reading. This week's list features beach-themed romance novels for when you're in the…
