KT’s Adventures in Europe: Amsterdam Netherlands (Part 1)...

Mar 14, 2017 by

  I’m back! I’ve returned from the jaunt in Europe, and had an incredible time! I was lucky to visit some amazing countries in 10 days- 5 in all (crazy whirlwind tour, with 2 day stops in each place). The 5 places in I visited were: Amsterdam, Netherlands Budapest, Hungary Vienna, Austria Dresden, Germany (day trip 8 hours) Prague, Czech Republic   Why these countries, you may ask? Amsterdam has been on my bucket list of places to visit before I die. The others were because they are all in close proximity to ones another, and easy to travel to by plane or train (under 3 hours).  I was able to visit all by taking Easy Jet (under $70 for a ticket one way) and the rail/train system (under $50 one way). I also traveled...

Mar 3, 2017 by

For the first time in 8 years since I’ve had Babbling about Books, and More, I’m going on a long hiatus for over a week because I’ll be traveling for to long distant lands (maybe not so long and distant), such as:   Amsterdam, Netherlands (Rembrandt House Museum) Fun Facts about Amsterdam: There are close to 900,000 bicycles in the city. 20 million tourists visit every year. Amsterdam has more bridges than Venice. Amsterdam is one of the top 25 safest cities in the world. Amsterdam is the second largest consumer of coffee in the world (I’ll fit in quite well!). There is a catboat called Pozenboot that houses stray cats, and is the only one of it’s kind in the world.   Budapest, Hungry (Széchenyi Spa) Fun facts about Budapest: Budapest has more thermal springs...

Jonathan Kellerman and Helen Hardt Rise to the Top...

Feb 25, 2017 by

There’s some interesting movement this week on the adult fiction charts. Neil Gaiman, J.D. Robb and Jonathan Kellerman (Heartbreak Hotel) have all sold over 18,000 in print, which makes me believe that have that in almost double their digital sales. I would give these authors close to 40,000 in overall sales. Not far behind them, but more in digital than in print is Burn by Helen Hardt, which probably has sales in the 30,000 plus range.     Sandra Brown’s Sting, James Patterson’s Bullseye, Danielle Steel’s The Apartment, and EL James’ erotic Twilight fan fiction sequel, Fifty Shades Darker (along with the 2 other books in the trilogy, including the one with the POV of Christian/Edward) is also selling well (in part to the movie, which has made over $300 million worldwide). These books...
