A library in my pocket

I am allowed ten books at any one time on my Kindle Unlimited shelf. Perhaps my appetites were bigger than my eyes, because I found that I reached that limit very quickly, and if I saw another book that looked juicy and interesting, I had to read and return one.

This is a good thing, because otherwise I would just stockpile books and like the towering Mount Toberead beside my bed, the ones on the bottom would never get read, buried under a pile of newer arrivals.

Besides, I like reading. My aim in getting a Kindle Unlimited subscription is to check out the various market niches, see what’s popular, what’s good, what characteristics the best-sellers have and so on.

This doesn’t mean I intend to churn out stories in the same vein as everyone else, but but it does give me a feel for the environment.

Maybe I can earn a few brownie points by reviewing books.

And, you know, I like reading!

I’m looking at shorter works. Something that will take me half an hour or so. 10 000 words; that sort of territory,

Like an Uber ride, my reviews are going to be five stars, unless I detest and despise the book, which most likely means that I haven’t read the blurb.

My real views will be in the review itself. A long review where I examine various aspects of the work probably means I enjoyed it. Thought it was worth some serious examination, for starters.

I need to review things on Goodreads first; when I drop a review into Amazon it sinks out of sight for a day or so until someone’s had a look at it and given it a tick. On Goodreads, I can do the review and then copy it for Amazon immediately.

You’ll have to follow me on these platforms – Amazon and Goodreads – to see what I’m reading. And what I think of them.

Britni Pepper has always enjoyed telling stories. About people, places and pleasures. Her schoolmates loved listening to her stories about princesses and pirates and dragons, and once she looked up to find the principal looking on. "No, no, don't stop, Britni," he said. "I want to hear what happens next!" What happened next was university, a job in the travel industry, and a career of travelling the world meeting the most fascinating people. Britni has travelled to thirty of the world's nations and loves making up stories about fascinating people doing interesting things in exotic places. No longer tales about princes and wizards, but her stories are just as much fantasy as ever.
