"I BELIEVE IN PINK! I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles."— Audrey Hepburn

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Every night, friends. You have done what you could. Let it go.

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson

2011 Show Me The Free Reading Challenge. Let the Games Begin!!

Hi There!

2011 Show Me The Free Reading Challenge. That is the link to something new that I am trying. I follow a blog called The Unread Reader she is running a few reading challenges this year (2011) and I am participating in one of them...this one seems like it will be fun! As a Kindle owner I am offered free books quite often and so this is a challenge to see just how many of those free books that I download over the course of the year, I actually read...Fun right? I can't wait to get started because as, some of you may know, and any of you that actually know me do, I am a voracious reader. I do actually read those free books that Amazon offers me! In fact I have to say, that Amazon, through Kindle Nation Daily, (a blog) offers some pretty sweet free and very low cost reads!
I do have to admit that having read said free items that this has then led me down the path of the "the rest of the NOT FREE series", but "Se la vie" No? Pardon my French...I may know the phrase, but not how it is spelled...Any one want to join in the fun?

Happy PINK New Year!


  1. That sounds great. I love to read. Alas, I am not the proud owner of a Kindle.

  2. You don't need to be...You can load the FREE kindle app!

  3. Sheesh the whole comment didn't post...it should have said, load it onto your PC or laptop, and read them there...

  4. Hey pinkim,

    I'm so happy that you have joined the Show Me the Free Challenge. I think it is going to be fun.

    Happy Reading!


  5. I'd love to hear what you think about the quality of the free books you get to download. Any chance we could get a few reviews? I haven't ventured into the e-reader world yet. I sometimes wonder if all the free and self-published books out there are worthwhile - even if they are free.

  6. Hi Shannon, As soon as I get a chance I will have to try to post a few...but I will tell you that some of the free books are actually mainstream authors that are putting their books out there to get new readers on board...that way you sort of get hooked on a great series and buy the rest...lol! I subscribe to a blog called The kindle Nation Daily and he puts out the daily freebies and critiques them so you have a heads up on any that you might be interested in and don't miss them. I have actually been able to get the next book in a series for free on a pre order prior to the release date. Then when it comes out I don't have to pay...Great deal! I love my Kindle! But as I say, you can take advantage of the apps and try it out with out actually buying one. The other free books are from new authors starting out, the blog I mentioned will only talk about the ones that he feels are worth a mention...and he has not been wrong yet. The others are the tried and true classics.

    I hope that helps! Oh, and there are also lots of books offered for 0.99 up to 3.99 at any given time, along with the regularly priced books. No, I do not work for Amazon!

    Thanks for visiting and Stay Pink!
