|$25 Gift Coupon from LASR|
The number is still way behind the sale of prints, but the advent of the eReader and buying eBooks jumped dramatically in the past year. Now that I have a Kindle, I have an all-consuming urge to load it with novels.
As luck would have it, LASR (Long and Short Reviews) stepped in and gave me a $25 coupon to spend at Amazon or B&N. I won it by commenting on the Valentine's Day blog extravaganza. I followed directions, read a few, and commented. Thinking I'd get back to the contest after I ran necessary errands in town, I hoped to win something. Since I am a lucky person and often win a prize of some sort, I felt confident I'd at least get a $5 Coupon. When I arrived home and fired up my Toshiba, surprise! I won a $25 GC!
In my spare time—between edits—I perused the Amazon Kindle Store for just the right purchases. As I was checking around, I found a free novel by Jill Marie Landis, one of my favorite authors—limited time only. Well, I stopped my search to load that on my Kindle. I also found a free novel—limited time only—by Susan Wiggs, one of my very favorite authors, and I loaded that on my Kindle. (You might notice I have many favorites.)
Once I had my list, the total came to $24.17. Pretty good, huh? And the list contained SIX BOOKS. I am a true bargain hunter. Carefully, I read the directions about the use of an Amazon GC, and began buying.
Well, shoot. I forgot to click into Amazon.com/gc, so the total went to my credit card. At first, I tried to figure out how to start over to use my coupon, but my greediness took over. What's a $24.17 charge anyway? I don't splurge much at all, so in conclusion, I felt very happy that I still have that $25 coupon in my account as a credit.
Yes, you guessed it. I'm already making another purchase list.
Now, to find time to read all these novels.
Oh—do you want to know what I bought? Sure, I don't mind telling you.
