    I am reading ‘A Puppy Proposal’. He was dressed for a night out till he saw the injured dog (Border Collie) on the road limping...

    He took it to a vet but the guy was too filthy to continue his journey to paint the town red. The vet was a girl vet..

    Yes, but more hospital romances Gail , hard to come by though.

    My cousin is a writer she began on the step after the war telling stories to the local kids. Look out for Josephine Cox. She is a millionaire now and her books are devoted to family, she did one for my dad.
    Read Jinnie, it was a very good read!!
    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Womans-For...GGE_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1536388367&sr=1-1

    I look in our local book shops, people give them away after reading them, just have to make a donation.

    Hi @kate before I got on to the highlander book and regency ones...I destroyed loads of Josephine Cox books and many authors like her who wrote about war time, the hardship etc and when I brought my kindle and was looking I brought an highlander book and they're great also.
    I used to pay for books give them the neighbour to pass on then I turned to our local library and when I did the books I hadn't read, then moved to charity shops and after that Asda etc...then I brought my kindle.

    You used to be able to email a book to a friend but when they brought good reads out they soon stopped it and why god knows when you've paid for the book.

    Your doing good with your collection I gave loads away to my neighbour as she read the same books her mom and family members, then we she moved away I gave them to another neighbour, then she had a kindle, so I just handed them over to charity shops...I buy the books of Amazon and I only joined prime so if I purchased something it came quicker :rofl: mind you it's easier to send goods back. :)

    I found prime a rip off Gail. It was taking money monthly from my account, or it would had I not spotted it going out when I never ordered that month. Now I prefer to wait.

    Sorry to hear Kate what they was doing mate...I pay for the year out the way but when I purchase something I always check the dates with my purchase even the books...it's mainly so stuff comes quicker if I need it.
