Kindle Love

I love, love, love my Richard Henry. And by Richard Henry I mean my Kindle. Yes, that's how much I love it, I named it. Now, why do I love it so much... Let me count the ways!

I love the instant gratification of being able to download the book right then and there. There is no need to go and get dressed and drive to the book store. I can sit right in my living room in my pajamas and buy a book.

The sample button is my friend! Every time I see a book that sounds interesting but I've never read the author I can just have a sample sent. It's like author speed dating. I get a couple chapters to see if I like the author's tone and if I don't then I haven't wasted my money because its FREE!

I tend to travel a lot. and I must always have something to read cause I've been known to get stuck in airports (like the time I was stuck in Syracuse for 8 hours) and books can get heavy. But my Richard Henry is very light and carries hundreds of books so I always have something to read. And if I don't like what I'm reading I can always find something else thanks to the Kindle Store!

Another great thing, the pricing. A lot of the E-books are priced lower then the paperback version and sometimes are on sale for really cheap or FREE! This is another way to try out a new to you author and I have found some gems thanks to this!

I have the Kindle app on my iPhone which is amazing! When I'm out running errands I usually don't have Richard Henry on me but I always have my phone which means I can read anywhere. It makes things interesting when I'm at a family function and I'm reading a sexy book while trying not to blush.

Don't get me wrong, I love paperbacks and I will always buy them especially for certain authors. But, Richard Henry has definitely made my life a bit easier. Do any of you have a Kindle or and E-book reader? Do you love it or is just OK?

Now, next week I'm working on a post about those free E-books I mentioned. So tell me, if it's free do you download it? Do you start reading them knowing that they are maybe not up to par with other E-books?

Did you hear?

Huzzah! Did you hear the news? Kati aka Romancing Rakes is doing her first author interview and giveaway! And just who is this lucky author? Why it's the super fabulous Jenn LeBlanc author of The Rake and The Recluse. You want to know the best thing about Jenn LeBlanc's book... its illustrated. And by illustrated I mean pictures of real people! And let me tell you, those pictures HAWT! I mean, just look at the cover!

Now see that gorgeous man on the cover? That would be our newest obsession, Derek, or DH. So a few nights ago we were twittering about how much we are in lust with that sexy man (seriously get the e-book because the pictures are smokin!) that Ms. LeBlanc offered to do Kati's first author interview. How sweet is that? And what's even sweeter... She's giving away two copies of the e-book and some other fun stuff!

Kati and I tagged team Ms. LeBlanc with some questions. I really just wanted to know where I could find DH and keep him for myself. What? A girl can try. Anyway, make sure you ALL head over to Romancing Rakes because there are pictures too!

So I happen to have an ePub copy of The Rake and The Recluse that I just downloaded the other day. I will also admit that I scrolled through the book to look at the pictures first. I just think the idea of an illustrated novel is so cool. You should also head to Jenn's Leblanc's website The Illustrated Romance and take a look at what she does!

Now make sure you comment over at Romancing Rakes. Kati's got the goods, I'm just pimping!

The giveaway will end 5/18 and trust me, you'll want to win! I hear Ms LeBlanc is sending some pictures of DH *sigh*

Oh, Monday

Happy Monday Everyone! I hope everyone had a good Mother's Day yesterday. I went shopping with my Mom to Peddler's Village in New Hope, PA. It was so nice out here in Jersey that walking around outside was fabulous. We even went in this hat store and tried on a bunch of hats and fasinators. Sadly, none were right for me but I'm not giving up hope! I will find one! I also was a nice daughter and bought my Mom and my Aunt (also my Godmother) dinner since she was going to alone with both her husband and son working. So get double points! What did you ladies do for Mother's Day?

Don't forget today, like all Monday's, is Man Candy Monday. Our topic this week is Professor Man Candy. or, how I like to think of it: Hot Guys in Glasses. Example: Matt Bomer

The fabulous Ana Farish will be blogging at the
Man Candy Monday blog about those sexy intellecual types. Now, unfortunately, none of my professors at school were anything special but maybe that's a good thing cause I'm sure I wouldn't get any work done if I was staring at them. There is something sexy about a smart man because let's be honest, you can be hot as can be with a 6pack of abs, chiseled cheeks and baby blue eyes but if you can put a sentence together then I'm so not interested. (I'll still look though lol)

Now, I also suggest you head over and visit Kati at
Romancing Rakes because she has some super sexy guys in glasses. And she is also pimping a new obessions of ours: DH you may have seen him on the cover of Jenn LeBlanc's The Rake and the Recluse. PS... It's an Illustrated Novel! That means there are pictures inside the book! How awesome is that?!? Oh, and the pictures... HAWT!

You know the drill, come hang with us on Twitter 9PM EST/6PM PST and all those times in between. Feel free to bring pictures of hot guys and share, just don't forget to use the hashtag #ManCandyMonday

Now, I'm going to be a good girl and listen to Professor Cavill.

While I'm gone... Did you have any hot professors in school? Any scandalous stories about you and the TA?
