So in actuality, I have almost 50, counting the ones that are part of a trilogy that I didn’t list here but mentioned last week.
I admit it: I’m a sucker for deals and for Amazon First Reads. I also have Prime Reading and got pulled into a four-month free subscription to Kindle Unlimited. That’s how I’ve discovered many of these.
For the record, I’ve given up on the Chernow book and Don Quixote, at least for the foreseeable future (the next decade at least) so don’t try to convince me to finish those. However, have you heard of any of the others? Which ones would you read first?
Do you buy too many books, e- or otherwise? How do you decide what to read among them?
