Love Tap by M.N. Forgy

Favorite Quotes

This woman is my nightmare and my saving grace. Like a drug. You know it’s bad for you, but the way you feel when you’re so wrapped and consumed by it overrides any rational thinking. 
I can still see his blond hair falling into his eyes, as his boyish charm sank its claws into my soul. 
You want to know why you couldn’t move on and be with anyone else? Because nobody can fill your dark desires like I can.

Why Kindle?

Why Kindle?

I get asked quite often the question of which e-reader is best, and while I’ll say that I think the Kindle is the best, it’s also the only one I have ever used. When picking the best e-reader for YOU—just like when you pick your favorite child—it’s all about personal preference.

For me, the pros and cons of picking a Kindle over a NOOK (at the time there was no such thing as an iPad Mini) for my first e-reader weighed heavily to the side of the Kindle. I am a long-time Amazon Prime customer and Amazon.com is my go-to shopping site. When I shop for my non-e-reader-loving-daughter, we go to our local Barnes & Noble to buy her paperbacks. (See also: The kid will put me in the poorhouse if she keeps this whole stubborn-for-paper attitude.)

The other question I get asked often is why when I do an e-book giveaway why it’s almost always a Kindle e-book I’m giving away. No, I’m not an e-reader bigot. To give you a teensy inside look into the life of a Smut Book Enthusiast and High-Powered Professional Book Recommender, we make money off of the links you use to buy your books.

For instance: When I include or share a link to Amazon.com, and you click on that link to buy a book (or anything else from Amazon), I make a few pennies. No, the book or the product doesn’t cost extra to you; Amazon pays me a percentage of the price in exchange for advertising their product. The more books and products you buy after you click on the link from me, the more pennies I make. The more pennies I make, the more e-books I can buy and give away.

The same goes for Amazon.ca, Amazon.co.uk, BN.com, Kobobooks.com, Smashwords.com, iTunes, and any other book-selling website. Only, they don’t pay as well and as easy as Amazon.

Amazon just happens to be the best at rewarding its affiliates (like me and other fancy book reviewers) for our work. They pay the highest, they pay the quickest, and they make it easy on us advertisers to advertise their products.

If you don’t have a Kindle e-reader, you can download a free Kindle app on every smartphone and tablet that works just the same as a standalone Kindle e-reader. I know MANY people who use the app on their smartphones to read their Kindle books.

So, why Kindle? Because they take care of me, and I, in turn, take care of you with giveaways.

Giveaways like these (click here)!

EDIT [Aug 25, 2013]: In late June, it was announced that Barnes & Noble would be ceasing production of its Nook tablets:

The company plans to significantly reduce losses in the Nook segment by limiting risks associated with manufacturing. Going forward, the company intends to continue to design eReading devices and reading platforms, while creating a partnership model for manufacturing in the competitive color tablet market. Thus, the widely popular lines of Simple Touch and Glowlight products will continue to be developed in house, and the company’s tablet line will be co-branded with yet to be announced third party manufacturers of consumer electronics products.

Though BN will continue to make the black-and-white Nook e-reader, it admits that its market share is decreasing. source

 

What Is The Best E-reader?

Now Reading
What Is The Best E-reader?

I have no idea which is the best e-reader—I just know which one I like.

The Kindle Paperwhite is my e-reader of choice. Before I got My Precious this past Christmas as my one big gift, I had a Kindle Touch. But since the plain old Touch has gone the way of the cassette tape, the Paperwhite has taken its place.

Why the Kindle?

I initially chose a Kindle over a NOOK because I’m an Amazon girl. I’ve had an Amazon Prime account for forever, mainly for the free 2-day shipping, and I like their interface more than Barnes & Noble’s. After doing my research, I decided on a Kindle Touch even though I’d never even held one before ordering it.

What Is The Best E-Reader?Because I don’t have a NOOK, I can’t really give you a point-by-point list of why you should have a NOOK, but if you ask a NOOK owner, they love them. Personally, I wouldn’t recommend buying a NOOK at this point because there have been rumors and reports that Barnes & Noble is struggling to keep up with the technology of the e-reader market.

I have a regular-sized iPad, and I know a lot of people who love reading on it through either iBooks or any of the free reading apps from Amazon, B&N, Kobobooks, etc. For me, the iPad is too big and heavy to be my go-to e-reader. Plus, my kids always hijack it to play Minecraft, Sims, Plants vs. Zombies, Pretty Pretty Nail Salon, Barbie Goes to Hooker School, and whatever other crap app they’re addicted to.

If I had an iPad Mini, I’m pretty sure I would love its size and flexibility to buy an e-book in any format, but I don’t, so…meh. The same goes for the Kindle Fire—it’s a bit heavy for me and it also has a reflection. I don’t know about you, but I don’t like catching myself in the reflection of a screen while I’m looking down, reading a hot n’ heavy love scene. A surprise reflection of multiple chins isn’t conducive to proper smut-reading concentration.

Which Kindle?

I can tell you why I love My Precious Kindle Paperwhite and why I think the Amazon sells the best e-reader. The model I have is the Wi-Fi version with special offers. The Kindle Touch I had previously had no special offers, so I was weary at first at having the special offers, but to be honest, I kind of like having the ads on the lock screen because they have some pretty good deals I wouldn’t have necessarily known about otherwise. There are NO ads while you read; only ads on the lock screen and on the very first page of your bookshelf.

I don’t travel a lot, so I don’t have a need for the 3G version. If you’re a heavy traveler, it might be important for you to have access to adding books whenever you want. I’ve never once had the sudden urge to add a book to my Kindle when I’ve been away from Wi-Fi, so the 3G isn’t necessary for me.

Also, the National PTA endorses the Kindle Paperwhite, and anything endorsed for use by kids is perfect for reading smut.

Pros

[heartlist]
  • Lighted reading screen.
  • Light touch to page turn.
  • Highlighting and sharing quotes.
  • Ability to look up words and translations.
  • Holds approximately eleventy-billion books and documents.
  • Accepts emailed books and shared documents.
  • Converts most files automatically to be read like a book.
  • Amazon gets nearly every new book published before every other e-book merchant.
[/heartlist]

Cons

[fancylist]
  • My greasy fingerprints smudge the black case where I hold it.
  • Can’t turn the light completely off, even when turned down to 0.
[/fancylist]

If you don’t already have an e-reader or are looking to replace yours, I suggest the Kindle Paperwhite. If you’re not in the market for an e-reader, you can use any of the e-book merchant’s free reading apps on your smartphone or even read on your computer.

Basically, you have no excuse for NOT reading copious amounts of smut.
