In My Inbox (7): Sunday 27 May 2012

Welcome to
In My Inbox!!

I have been treatening to do this for a some time now – and here it is: the list of the ebooks I have downloaded, for free, from Amazon during 2011; the 2012 books will appear in a later IMI post.  Now I can see them all, I realise that I’ve been a bit like a small child in a sweet shop, grabbing pretty much anything I can see.  In fact, I’ve downloaded more books in three months than I said I’d read in a year for the Goodreads Challenge!  I think I need to take a few deep breaths and be a little more picky…or have someone tell me to “put down the mouse and step away from the computer” 🙂

I have read quite a number of these books (more than I’ve yet registered on Goodreads…that’s next on my To Do List) and I’ve linked the ones I’ve already reviewed.  I doubt I’ll come back and retrospectively link, since the next item on my To Do List (it’s a long list) is to update my reading challenge pages with the appropriate books.

This post has taken hours of work to format over the last month. I think it’s been worth it as I can see a number of books – particularly the business and self-help books that I’ve filed in suitably named folders on my Kindle – that I’d forgotten I’d downloaded. I really have to be more selective in my downloading!
