Lora's Rants and Reviews

My own unapologetic opinions on books and writing. I DO NOT accept review requests but only review books I choose to read and I don't post reviews on Amazon. I'm also persnickity about genre and plot.

Square 4 Task: treat yourself to a new book - post a picture of it.

"Be thankful for yourself and treat yourself to a new book - post a picture of it."


I don't often buy new paperbacks, and never hardbacks. Too expensive! I tend to buy Kindle or used paperbacks depending on which is cheaper.


There can be exceptions. I wanted this anthology because - Dragons! And I've read other stuff from four of the authors so I expect it's going to be good. It was the cover art that made me want the paperback. I'd pay the price for an art print! I'll have this on my shelf instead and have the added bonus of something good to read!
