Lots of Books Currently on Sale, Including Translations

cover, Single, No Children

For many (though not all) of my e-books, I have the option to put them on sale for seven days, several times a year. One of those weeks is starting today, June 4, 2016, I think at 8 a.m. (If you are reading this after June 11, 2016, this particular sale is over but the regular prices of all of these books are still affordable.)

These are Kindle Countdown Sales (though you should be able to read the books on any device, not just a Kindle). The way they work is that the prices of the books are at their very lowest (99 cents) on the first day, then gradually increase over the course of the week to their usual list price. The sale is ongoing at both the US and the UK Amazon sites.

‘Singlism’ and ‘Matrimania’ Are Words of the Month

This is a true story: When I was named valedictorian of my Dunmore High School class of 1971, my gift from the high school was a year’s subscription to Reader’s Digest.

Maybe I should have continued to read it. In June of 2012, the magazine chose “singlism” and “matrimania” as their Words of the Month. Check out the box in the lower right-hand side of the image. (Sorry it is not very clear.)
