Slow week in the reading realm. I did pick up a couple new books, though. A mystery and an SF from the Ereader News Today newsletter. The mystery I read on the 17th.
75) Amazon Decoded: A Marketing Guide to the Kindle Store by David Gaughran (10/9/18) - NF* - 5 stars - Not new to me, but slightly underappreciated.
others have said, you can only get this if you subscribe to Mr.
Gaughran's list, but if you're a self-published author, why wouldn't you
subscribe? As with his other books on self-publishing, this is
extremely informative and incredibly useful. I can't say I'm the
greatest at implementing his strategies, but that's on me. And since
I've read this and his other books, there's always hope. It's not a
'I'll read this and be an overnight bestseller' book. You have to
actually do the work, which I suck at. For the self-published go-getter,
though, this is a must read."
73) An Occupied Grave by AG Barnett (10/7/18) - Mystery* - 5 stars. New to me, but not underappreciated. It didn't totally meet the criteria, but I wanted to treat myself, so I picked this one up for free through ENT.
Fun! I love a good British
mystery. This was kind of like watching 'Endeavour on Masterpiece', but
set today and with its own special story. Great characters, awesome
plot, interesting twists. Can't wait to see what's next for Brock and
I'm currently reading an Alastair MacLean - When Eight Bells Toll. Apparently it was made into a movie. I never saw it, so it's all good. It's the last unread MacLean in my collection, which gives me a sad.
I have an eARC of a mystery I need to read this coming week and get reviewed. (It's due out on the 18th.) Not sure when I'll get to that SF up there or the action adventure that's been waiting for a couple weeks now.
What did you read this past week? Anything worth talking about?
