Ever just have a streak of good fortune as a Reader?  You know what I mean, right?

You know your book reader mojo is strong when…

  1.  You learn about a deal on Kindle Unlimited for the two or three months when you timed it to have the least amount of new releases, review ARCs, and other real life commitments.
  2. A secondary character in the book you just read and loved them so much becomes the next hero/heroine in the series.
  3. A book you want to read more than anything is up for review at Net Galley or Edelweiss and you get selected to review the ARC.  
  4. And, let’s up the ante from #4 and say you wanted a finished copy so badly, but would settle for an ARC and the publisher/author mails it unsolicited to your doorstep.
  5. Something about a book you’ve never heard of catches your eye, you take a chance, and you’ve just read your new favorite book of the year- and it has friends, on the author’s backlist and they are abso-fab, too.
  6.  You overbooked your review commitments because you needed all the books and a few turn out to be novella-length and you get some unexpected reading time.
  7. You made the decision to get the book in a specific format and it was a good call b/c it was a much better experience with or without the audio.
  8. A book you want to read soon goes on sale or free right when you’re thinking about it.
  9. You spot a review for a book you’re contemplating and the reviewer/s point out an element that would have absolutely ruined your reading experience so you can duck your own bad book/reader match up and skip it.
  10. You were gifted or won a gift card right when your book budget ran out.

Haha!  Yes, these have all really happened to me.  See? I’m blessed. Had any fab book reader mojo of your own?  Do Tell!

I don’t know about mojo but the email from Amazon this week Buy 60.00 worth of books get $40.00 free sure was fun. I bought things I’d wanted and swore I would never pay full price for. Plus I have some books I want coming soon so I’m saving the 40.00 to get those.

Yep, your mojo is strong, Lorna. 🙂 So cool to get offered that deal.


You found some that fit me perfectly, and that meme at the end says it all. Definitely worth stealing and sharing.
Hugs and Happy Sunday , Shari.(lol)

Oh man, my piles of books have me close to hoarder status. 🙂 I’ve been trying to downsize those, but still…

Carole Rae

That meme is perfect LOL

Sophia Rose

Doesn’t it sound like all of us? LOL

I think that I have had most of these things happen at least once. It is great to be a reader/reviewer 🙂

Sophia Rose
