If you havenâ€™t investigated e-readers before, theyâ€™re really nifty devices.Â Although some people will still love the feel and look of ink on paper, reading books on e-readers can provide convenience, portability, and in some cases cost*.Â And you may already have an e-reader and not even know it.Â While most people might think that of traditional e-readers such as Amazonâ€™s Kindle and Barnes & Nobleâ€™s Nook, almost all smartphones have Kindle and Nook apps to allow you to read on your smart phone as well as on your tablet, like Appleâ€™s Ipad.
* I mentioned cost earlier.Â Thatâ€™s because Amazon often provides free and cheap books to support their Kindle device.Â One such book that they currently have for free is â€œThoroughbreds and Trailer Trashâ€ by Bev Petterson.Â Hereâ€™s a description of the book from Amazon:
Jenna Murphy, a dedicated horse masseuse, relies on her job and street smarts to support what’s most important…her younger sister. But when the Thoroughbred Wellness Center experiences a hostile takeover headed by a charming but ruthless corporate shark, both her heart and career are in jeopardy.
Marie B reviewed the book and said:
Thoroughbreds and Trailer Trash takes place at an equine wellness facility that is in the middle of a hostile takeover. Burke, an executive, shows up to “flip” the center; he wants to cater to wealthy clients, and hopes to impress them with very qualified staff. Jenna, a talented horse masseuse, gets results, but is self-taught; she didn’t even graduate from high school. She can’t afford to lose the job; she’s putting her little sister through college by herself, so as she gets closer to Burke, she’s torn between coming clean and looking after what’s most important to her, her sister.
I absolutely LOVED Jenna. The girl’s completely hilarious! She gets herself into some trouble, but everything that she does is to protect her family, friends, and of course, her elderly pony, Peanut. Burke, the poor guy, doesn’t know what to make of her most of the time, but he he really is sweet, under all of the scary businessman stuff. It was cute how Jenna was the only person who wasn’t intimidated by him!
If you like Horses and Romance, then this book may be just the ticket.Â Bev Petterson generally focuses on horses and she has produced the Racetrack Romance Box Set including: â€œJockeys and Jewels,â€ â€œColor My Horse,â€ and â€œFillies and Females,â€ none of which are over $3.19 on the Kindle.
If youâ€™re interested, be sure to hurryâ€¦often times books are only free for a day or two.Â But even if the price goes up, youâ€™ll still be able to pick it up at the â€œDigital List Priceâ€ of $3.99.
