Eligible Kindle books can now be lent to other readers with a kindle e-reader application installed (Kindle, smartphone, ipod, etc). (Learn more at Amazon) I've modified my Goodreads Bookshelf to reflect which of my ebooks are lendable. Check out my "lendable-ebooks" bookshelf. It also any bn ebooks that are lendable.

This is the first Jodi Thomas book that I've read and the first book in the Harmony series. This book has a great cast of characters that are nicely woven and integrated into several interesting stories. Looking forward to more.

Hour 24: Dewey's 24 Hour Read-A-Thon: October 2010

Posted by Ann Roberts at 5:00 AM 2 comments
Lesson Learned: Having a big dinner and wine don't mix with a 24 hour readathon. Fell asleep at some point...probably not too long after I started reading again. Just woke up. *sigh*

Congrats to those who made it! I'll plan better next spring!!

Hour 14: Dewey's 24 Hour Read-A-Thon: October 2010

Posted by Ann Roberts at 7:09 PM 6 comments
OMG!! I just had the most amazing food and *cough* *several* bottles of wine. I am no longer confident of my ability to make it through the night this time. Anyway...I'm back and will be starting my next book.

First, I want to say THANKS to everyone who has stopped by the Noumena12 Book Blog to give encouragement and cheer me on! To my official cheerleaders, I will be offline for a while as I have a dinner party to attend. I'm not planning on letting amazing food and wine slow me down when I return! Off to cheer a few other on!

Outlaw Marriage

Laurie Paige

Start: 20101009 13:11

End: 20101009 16:33

Pages: 256

Description: "What better way to conquer your opponent than to get extremely close to him?"

Hope Baxter had teethed on stories of Kincaid family corruption. So when her ruthless father demanded his lawyer daughter wrench prime land from the Kincaids' grasp...she went in for the kill. But Hope underestimated her opponent--a dust-on-his-leather-chaps cowboy, Collin Kincaid. His weapon was his searing kiss, and Hope was defenseless against it. Collin unearthed Hope's vulnerability--her secret desire for a family. But following her dream would mean the ultimate defection. Could they forget their families' feuds and love simply as man and woman...husband and wife?

Comments: Crazy as it is…I'm engrossed in the Montana Mavericks characters. And they keep coming and coming and coming.

My Give a Damn's Busted

Carolyn Brown

Start: 20101009 0800

End: 20101009 1236

Pages: 148

Description: You won't want to miss this boot scootin' contemporary full of sexy cowboys and sassy women. (The Romance Studio 20100924)

The third tale in Brown's sassy contemporary romance series (I Love This Bar, 2010) set at the Honky Tonk continues her home-grown, humorous, country-music-themed stories, with Jo Dee Messina's popular song running throughout. (Lynn Welch Booklist )

Brown's wit and humor shine... [a] zany and fast-paced tale and lovable characters. (Sarah Eisenbraun RT Book Reviews )

Want a book filled with red-hot chemistry, a nasty antagonist, and a rollicking honky tonk? Then you need to read My Give a Damn's Busted. (The Long and Short of It )

Comments: I'm not really a fan of country music and honky tonks. Heck, I don't think I've ever been to a honky tonk. But I really enjoy these books!

I always get off to a slow start. I have appointments Saturday mornings...while I can do some reading...I don't get a lot done. But I'm home now...and going to hunker down for the next few hours. Hoping DH is bringing lunch! :)

NOTE: "Hunker down?" Must be because of the book I'm reading! :)

It's Almost Time! Dewey's 24 Hour Read-A-Thon: October 2010

Posted by Ann Roberts at 4:27 AM 5 comments
I can't believe that it is time to start again!! I'm just getting myself set up and ready to go. Thanks to my bookfriend Shaunesay for helping me out with a new template this year.

I'm going to start by finishing the book that I am currently reading. I'm about 61% through 384 pages. So I'll get to count 149 pages in my total page count...but I won't count the book for the readathon.

I've also got a commitment tonight so I'll be missing in action for a few hours around 5:30pm EST. But I'll try to make up for it by reading longer than scheduled 24 hours.

Almost time to get started!

#noumena12reads #readathon #noumena12_dining

So the phone rings at 10:30am this morning! Really?! Who wasn't paying attention yesterday!!

Hosting dinner tonight to recruit (what I think) is a really cool thing for the #Masquerage Red Ribbon Lounge. The Menu:
Fresh Corn Soup with Roasted Corn Guacamole
Pork Chops with Coconut Sauce
Jasmine Rice
Grilled Carrots
Grilled Pineapple with Butter-Rum Glaze, Marscapone, and Blueberries


I think I'm out of time for a nap!

Emma Darcy is a new author for me to read. Another Best of Makeovers Bundle book. I can’t say that I hold out a lot of promise for this book with the cheesy title and cover. But hey, it’s only 192 pages! Maybe I can finish it before John has dinner ready. J
