May was a good stockpiling month for me. Lots of good books either on sale or free. I even turned down a few freebies, believe it or not. I'm not going to clutter up my Kindle with books I know I'm not going to read just because they're free.
In fact, I've got a book that's calling my name right now, so instead of a long, boring intro, I'm going to get straight to the list of titles that I just couldn't resist adding to my digital security blanket. I've grouped them all by genres/subgenres, so let's take a look! (And remember, if you'd like more information about any of the books, just click on the title, and you'll be taken to Amazon US for the synopsis, etc.)
