Tale weaver-books

I love books. I read a lot. I got through a lot of books. Reading is one of my distractions techniques.

Right now I am reading a book by vikki phelan, an irish woman who is an overarian cancer survivor, her story is her life story before and up to her diagnosis of ovarian cancer, its a great read.

I am thoroughly enjoying it. She has a good writing style, and her story is captivating.

Before this I read exploited by Maggie Hartley, that book was sad, but very good, and it did have a happy ending.

I like a lot of authors, but some of my favourites are cathy glass, maggie hartley, shane dunphy, rosie lewis and casey watson. Those are all forster carers.

I also like danielle steele, cathy kelly, kitty neale, and joanne fluke.

I dont always read a lot of fiction though. Mostly I read memoirs, or animal stories, or inspirational stories of people overcoming the odds.

What about you? Do you like to read? if so what type of books do you like?

I presume this is the theme: What Motivates your eBook buying decisions?
What buyer type are you?
Decisive Indecisive Reticent Hesitant Pondering Thoughtful Undecided?

I am a decisive buyer. I know what I want and what I like, I do buy recommended books too sometimes that friends recommend to me. But I buy with ease and enjoy picking out my books.
What buying decisions do you undertake when looking to purchase a new eBook? Are you influenced by any of the following and if so which ones and why?
Positioning from author rank to location on sales site?

I dont bother with the rank of a book on the sales site. I dont worry about it at all. I never or rarely even look at that info.
Price how much are you willing or do you expect to pay for an eBook or do you not buy eBooks and if so why this option?

I do buy ebooks occasionally. I will pay anything from 99 Cent to about 5 euro, usually I wont pay more than that unless I really want it. I do pay more for my audiobooks, and I do buy more audiobooks than ebooks.
Description of the book content?

The description always influences me, I love a detailed description of the book.
Book Title does this influence you at all?

Yes a lot. I love a good title. A well named book is important to me.
Cover does it matter if the cover looks cheap, or if it is coloured or bland?

No it doesnt matter at all to me since I cant see it anyway.
Reviews do you read or even leave reviews? Do you read the reviews others have left? Are you influenced by these?

I do leave reviews of the books I read. I try to leave fair reviews and I enjoy reviewing books. I dont usually read a lot of the reviews on the sites I buy from but occasionally I’ll read a few of them.
Do you look for collections, or sets or are you happy with one offs?
I read some series, but usually I read stand alone books. Although right now I have started a series, the hannah swensen series by joanne fluke. They are murder mysteries.

Does the length of a book bother you? Are you looking for short or long content?
I love any type of book, length doesnt bother me. I’ll read both short and long books.

Author Do you need to know the author or are you happy to go with unknowns?

I am happy to go with unknowns. I do have specific authors that I love such as cathy glass, shane dunphy, maggie hartley, casey watson, rosie lewis, and I enjoy authors who write memoirs, authors who write stories about animals and now I am enjoying the murder mysteries too.
Recommendations if someone you know has suggested a book, do you follow that up?

Yes I do go for books that others recommend to me. My firend sarah and I always talk about what we’re currently reading, or what we’ve read, and I get a lot of recommendations from her of new books to read and try out.
Needs met do you only buy books to meet your needs or books that feed and fuel your desires?

I usually buy what I enjoy, which are memoirs, autobiographies, animals stories, a little bit of fiction, murder mysteries, and true life stories about overcoming the odds. I dont usually read stuff that I have no interest in…like, science fiction, history etc.

Blustery night

Outside
The wind whips up
Rain falls
Bouncing off the ground
And windows
Inside
Me and Nitro
Are cosy and warm
In our cocoon
With the heat on
I hear the rain
Hammer my window paynes
Oh how glad I am
Not to be
Outside on this wet night

Torment

when fear grips you
and you feel trapped
unable to move
unable to breathe
you sit there
staring into space
caught in the memories
of the past
you are froz\en
your body wracked with sobs
you try to claw your way back
out of the flashback your now stuck in
this is what torment feels like
so gripped by fear
that minutes blurr into hours
you cant tell what is real and what isnt
you are stuck
in a neverending loop
will you ever be free?
