The hazards of reading samples

Wolf Hunt - Jeff Strand

I just said yesterday that I needed to finish a book or two before starting any more. Anyone who has followed me for any time knows I am reading through my samples collection to eliminate those I decide not to buy so I can clear up space on my Kindle.


I started reading this one today and by the end of chapter one I was checking the price. It's cheap. The sample took me past chapter three and by then the thought "less than a cup of coffee" took hold and I bought it and continued reading.


Sometimes it just takes hold and draws you in.
