Last week I signed up to be a consultant for a direct sales company. Do any of you have any recommendations of books that have work at home or selling tips? I set up a page on Facebook, but not many people seem interested yet.

RaimeyGallant Facebook is a tough nugget to crack. 1y

The Flu | Jacqueline Druga

I finally went back to work today, after missing almost a week. I went in Tuesday feeling horrible, and my boss sent me home after 30 minutes. I went to the doctor, and he said I had type A flu. I wasn't supposed to go back to work until Tuesday but he said as long as my fever was gone 24 hours I could go back. It's been a rough week, but I'm glad to be feeling better. I did get a lot of reading done.

Texreader Glad you are better! Sounds miserable!! 1y

Night Shift | Charlaine Harris

I'm heading to work now. I'll be there midnight to eleven in the morning, so I won't get to start reading until later tomorrow. I won't get near 24 hours but that's okay. I'll read as much as I can. I've been night shift all week, so it has thrown off my reading. @24in48

Puzzled to Death | Parnell Hall

I went to the main branch of our library today, and got a dozen books, including the tagged one. There's a little used bookstore down the street from it, so I had to buy a bunch there. He had some books for a dime! I hadn't bought a book all year. I think that's a record for me.

UwannaPublishme Books for a dime? Wow! 😊👍🏻 1y

Two Against Love | James, Ellen

Christie Daniels had left her old life far behind. She'd finally realized her dream of opening a small bed and breakfast in New Mexico. Her father didn't approve, but then he never approved of anything his daughter did.
He even went so far as to send an emissary - Matt Gallagher, another hardheaded, overbearing, big-city stockbroker - to bring her back. Well, she'd had enough of men like that.

BeckyD If only Matt weren't so darned attractive - so charming. But maybe he'd have such a good time in New Mexico he'd want to stay. Yes, maybe Christie could change his mind - because he wasn't going to change hers! Back cover description. 1y

Desert Paintbox | Jane McBride Choate

Book Description-Veterinarian Rachel Small Deer dreams of bringing her skill and knowledge to help the people of the reservation where she had grown up. Denver painter Nick Cassavettes has come to Los Cincos, New Mexico to reclaim the art he has lost through the guilt he feels over the death of his younger brother.

BeckyD Rest of description-

Rachel and Nick have nothing in common. She wants to preserve Los Cincos and resents the artists and tourists who would turn the town into a mass of bistros and boutiques, but she needs an assistant and Nick needs a guide to the town. They strike an uneasy bargain and discover new sides to each other. Rachel slowly comes to realize that she and Nick belong together. Can she convince him to accept the present without letting the past come between them?

I just joined the Modern Mrs. Darcy challenge. I'm bad to only read romance or mystery novels, so hopefully this will expand my reading a bit.

Dead Over Heels | Charlaine Harris

I read 26 books in February, which is low for me. I've been working a lot lately, and was just too tired to read. I couldn't focus when I tried. I hope March is better. If I hadn't lowered my goal this year, I would be behind. :( Still, there is plenty of time for me to catch up. The book tagged is the last book I read in February. That was on the 23rd. I haven't read anything in almost a week.

Sydsavvy Hope you are getting more reading time now! 2y

Goodreads has finally added the second date option, so it finally counts rereads. I am so happy about this. I have several books I reread, and this will help me keep track. One year I read Pride and Prejudice several times. I wish it had had the option then.

Notafraidofwords I'm excited about it. Still don't know how to use it. But I'm so happy they did it! 2y
BeckyD @notafraidofwords When you go to the book's review page, there is a button to add another date. I am so glad they finally did this. 😃 📚 2y

Deadly Greetings | Elizabeth Bright

The description of this book is wrong. Here's the back cover. Jennifer Shane is struggling to keep Custom Card Creations open for business, so her aunt Lillian snags her a delightful (and cheaper) apartment by the lake- which is rumored to be haunted by the ghost of its last occupant. Things get worse when a tragic accident kills Maggie Blake, one of her beloved card club members.

BeckyD Rest of back cover- Jennifer receives a handcrafted card written by Maggie before her death, warning that someone is trying to murder her. No one is above suspicion- not even the card club-and Jennifer must investigate. 2y
BekahB HA! Yep those are very different descriptions. The back cover version for the actual book sounds interesting. 😀 2y

The prince | Niccolò Machiavelli

I'm trying another book with serial reader. I've been meaning to read this for a long time. I'm still not sure I'll keep serial reader. I don't usually take more than a day to read a book, but maybe this will help me get back into reading more classics.

jpmcwisemorgan Serial Reader is nice because it allows you to read books a little at a time so there's plenty of time to read OTHER books. I have at least on serial going with whatever else I'm reading. 2y
BeckyD @jpmcwisemorgan I now have three books on serialreader. I think it will be good for books I couldn't finish before. 2y
monkeygirlsmama I guess that must be kind of like doing the #hpchapteraday challenge like we're doing here. It's fun to break it down and go Day by day, in small amounts, but it is hard sometimes not to sit down and read it all in one sitting. 2y
BeckyD @monkeygirlsmama that is my problem. I can pay to read ahead but I doubt I will. 2y

The Canterville Ghost | Oscar Wilde

I just read my first issue on Serial Reader. I don't know if I'll like the app or not. This book wouldn't take me four days to read otherwise. I'm not sure I want to pay to read ahead when the books are public domain. Does anyone else use this? What do you think?

cariashley I like it, especially for longer books. I did pay to upgrade for the flexibility but felt like it was a donation to a good literary cause. 😊 2y
Bookladylinda I have the app but not using it yet, not really sure if I will like it or not. 🤷🏾‍♀️sorry that probably didn't really help you, 2y
InLibrisVeritas I like it, though it's mostly because I am loaded with books to read and tend to forget about classics. So it's nice to get a little reminder each day to read. It's kind of weird for short stories but great for long novels. I paid for premium because I wanted to save progress and read ahead. 2y
