As part of my money saving tips - Book web site for Arc readers - this is for new authors or authors needing reviews - you are given a free copy of the book to read in return for an honest review. You tick what kinds of books you like - say crime, smut or Science fiction - lots of choices and then every day you are sent an email with options. There is no obligation to read a particular number you can read as much or as little as you like and know you are helping authors get a new book launched - and if you are like me its a small thrill knowing you are getting and advance copy!
As we all know money is a tricky issue right now and every one is being careful about their budget - so I am going to share some hints and tips which might be useful to our customers
So tip number 1 - I don't know if you are a reader or would like to be sign up for this site - hundreds of free books avaliable on a variety of formats - https://www.romancebookworms.com - I just picked up about 50 and there is no time limit - ie you buy them for free and they are yours forever.

Castle Howard is the stunning result of over 100 years of construction and then a further 200 years of carefull owners. The house has been through many challenges such as a massive fire in 1940 though we are happy to report the property is back to its former glory and an amazing back drop to showcase the fabulous art collections and stunning lanscaped grounds.
All in all a excellent package of outdoor activities during a time where we want a change of scene, space to stretch our legs freely and enjoy the fresh, clean Yorkshire air.
