June’21 eBook Haul

Clearly, I didn’t pay attention to just how many times I One-Clicked books on Amazon…or pre-ordered them. I honestly can’t remember the last time I hauled this many eBooks in a month. Have a read any of them…well, a few. I mostly blame the Stolen Brides of the Fae series – because one, it’s a handful of books, and two, I went and bought some of the author’s other books. I mean, of course I had to look at their works and figure out if anything else immediately caught my eye…clearly, they did.

But most of these books are by authors I’ve read before – quite a few are new to me, and I’ve definitely found some new favorites. I don’t regret hauling a bunch of eBooks – they take up less space and honestly, are easier to read. I don’t know about you, but it’s a hell of a lot easier and comfortable to curl up with my Kindle over a physical book. With my Kindle I don’t need lights, or my glasses and at the end of the day, that’s preferrable. Also, eBooks just tend to read faster – I don’t know why that is.

But enough of me rambling on.

Let’s take a look at what eBooks I hauled in June – it’s a lot.
