On My Wishlist, A Reminder About Freebies, and a Little Visitor


Reincarnation Blues 
by Michael Poore
384 p.
Publisher: Del Rey Books
Published: 8/22/17
A magically inspiring tale of a man who is reincarnated through many lifetimes so that he can be with his one true love: Death herself. 
What if you could live forever—but without your one true love? Reincarnation Blues is the story of a man who has been reincarnated nearly 10,000 times, in search of the secret to immortality so that he can be with his beloved, the incarnation of Death.


Yea, this sounds strange enough that I would probably enjoy it. LOL


FREEBIE
Also, don't forget this weeks audiosync free audiobooks!
Until 6/15
Go HERE to get it!

Next week (6/15-6/21):

The Red Umbrella by Christina Diaz Gonzalez, Narrated by Kyla Garcia
The Souls of Black Folk by W.E.B. Du Bois, Narrated by Rodney Gardiner


Personal Note:
Had a visitor that I wanted to share... meet little lizard dude! 


 I believe s/he is a many lined skink lizard. He fell into the window well (so forgive the pic, it is through a window) and the log is there so he could climb out. No go and he just couldn't find footing to get out. Poor guy. Had to fish him out so he is safe and terrorizing the bug population in the yard. He was more than a foot long from head to tail. 

Wishing Little Lizard Dude (or dudette, I didn't check) all the luck in the world.

    Reincarnation Blues looks so good!

  2. Oh my...I would have had to have one of my boys get him safely outside. I am loving the Sync free audiobooks :)

  3. I am loving Sync this year. Such good picks. I have to say I probably wouldn't have fished mr lizard out --they eek me out for some reason.

    1. Little lizard dude takes care of some nasty bugs so I love them in the yard. Plus they compete with the garter snakes so we see less of them. Convinced yet? ;) lol

  11. Got my Sync audios.

    Cool visitor. So heroic of you to fish him/her out. I've not seen one like that before. We don't get lizards here, but my folks do and theirs are little dark ones.

    1. YaY! for free!

      We get lizards when people don't spray poison on the lawns. :P

  12. Going to admit to being a bit in the dark. How does the Sync thing work? Just like a separate app like Audible? Thanks for sharing. And there's no way I would pick up a lizard, although I would also never let him die. I guess I would have to get the neighbor man to come over. You are braver than me!

    1. Get the Overdrive app for your comp. You just go to the site and enter information. The download starts and you click on the ODM file which will then prompt you on where you want it stored and what you want downloaded. Some FYI at audiobook sync: http://www.audiobooksync.com/sync-download-help/ If you need more help, just e-mail me. It may take a day or two for me to get back to you though.

  13. Wow, I've never come across any audiosync freebies. That's awesome!
    I practically had heart palpitations when I saw the photo. I am nearly phobic about lizards. (Which is a problem living in FL where lizards are *everywhere*.) I swear, I think I would Lose. My. Mind. if one actually touched me. Gah!

    1. Oh sweet! Glad you snagged some goodies and more on the way.

      Aw, they are cute to me but I didn't touch it just rooted for it to get out. :)

  14. Ahh.. I am glad you saved the lizard. I currently have lots of baby squirrels terrorizing my backyard.

  15. OOH Reincarnation Blues sounds so fascinating. I hadn't heard of that one, but I think I'd like it too!

  16. Oh yes weird lizard! All your books are new to me I confess!

  17. Cute little lizard dude! Around here we'd end up with a chipmunk or mouse! eep!

  18. Awww. Cute lizard. I would have saved them too. I love lizards and I rather like that they eat all the bugs that would ultimately try to make their way in the house.

  19. Aww, I never see lizards here. Deer, elk, bunnies, fox, and bears...but no lizards. I think I might trade for a lizard. ;) LOL

    1. Aw... I'll let the lizards know to come visit you. :)

  20. S/he sounds bigger than s/he looks. I'm glad you were able to save the lizard. I found a snake in my yard the other day. It was less than 3 foot long. I did get a picture and then s/he was on his/her marry little way. :-)

    1. We get an occasional garter snake and once in a blue moon an bull snake. I rather have the lizards but the garter snakes don't bother me either.

  21. As much as I like to say it's cute, but I hate lizards. Whenever I see one, it makes my skin crawl. Unseeing the picture that I just saw, haha. Btw, I'm loving the cool cover of Reincarnation Blues :)

  22. Whoa that is a huge visitor. I've be screaming like a girl for my guy neighbor to come do something. They freak me out. lol Glad he's safe, though. :)

  24. I'd most likely would have taken a pic and then ran for my brother to get the lizard on its way. Lots of baby squirrels by me. I had a small brown rabbit who came regularly for a week and then I haven't seen him/her.
