September 2020 Additions to My eBook Stockpile


September was yet another good month for fluffing my digital security blanket. I'd hate to think what it would take for me to have a no-eBooks-purchased one! 

September was also a good month budget-wise, with several being absolutely free. I don't know how I managed that! It's no wonder that Amazon is the power house that it is. When I read and reviewed one of their author's books-- lo, and behold-- they dropped the price of the rest of the series to the sub-basement so I simply couldn't turn them down. You know how it is...

But enough talking! Let me show you the eBooks I added to my Kindle in September. I've grouped them according to genre/subgenre, and if you click on the title of the book, you'll be taken to Amazon US for more information. I link to Amazon because I have a Kindle, not because of any affiliation with them.

Have you read any of these? Which ones? What did you think? Did any new titles catch your eye? Inquiring minds would love to know!


  1. Nice mix of books here as ever, Cathy. And a lot of new-to-me authors in your collection, which is always intriguing. I also see some familiar ones like Rhys Bowen. I'll be interested in what you think as you read these.

  2. This is another feature that I enjoy on Kittling Books. I did order some of the books after reading your blog. I ordered the Andrew Mayne Books. I like short story anthologies so I ordered Crime Travel. I already have the Tracy Clark book on my Kindle. I read Tahoe Deathfall after being introduced to it on your blog some time ago. I am continuing in that series. I am still thinking about Mexican Gothic. The price is up there right now. Love the cover.

    1. I wanted to meet McKenna and Spot for the first time all over again-- and it was free!

  3. Wow, that's a whole lot of e-books to gather up in a single month.

    I'm a big fan of Pat Conroy's writing, both fiction and nonfiction, so "The Water Is Wide" is the one that immediately jumped out at me. I have "Mexican Gothic" on my TBR list, but don't have a copy yet. I still can't resist that cover.

    1. Yes, the cover of Mexican Gothic is striking, isn't it?

      I, too, love Pat Conroy's writing, and I've never read The Water Is Wide, which is why I decided to buy it.


Thank you for taking the time to make a comment. I really appreciate it!
