My real life 4 comments

For many years I have been an accountant. The past 25 years I have worked for a telecommunications company. The company was recently acquired and the way of doing things has changed. My daily work has been in a state of upheaval for months. I’m not concerned I will lose my job; but rather that the volume of work is going to bury me.
I will continue to work the job as long as I enjoy it or become eligible for Medicare – whichever one comes first. My plan is to retire and read, read, read when I’m not listening to audiobooks.
This site has been a blessing for more than 10 years. I will miss all of you even though we have not met in person. Your words of encouragement, stopping by day after day for years and giving your support to an amateur blogger who started with zero experience have buoyed me through the years.
I end this website with sadness while looking forward to the next adventure that awaits. I pray that God will bless each of you richly as you have blessed me through the years. May you continue to find great reads at great prices and pass from this life with a book or a Kindle in your hands.

All good things come to an end…. 6 comments

Today is the last day of the regular daily posts!


Greetings to the loyal followers of Daily Cheap Reads –
I have made the difficult decision to end this website. Amazon recently lowered the commissions rate so drastically that I do not earn enough to pay the monthly server costs.
This site has never been a large moneymaker but I enjoyed producing it. The Daily Cheap Reads site in the United States made enough to keep this one going. Earlier this month, Amazon terminated my association for the US site.
The last active date of the website will be April 30, 2021. As I have paid for the server through June 30, I will post a link to the Kindle Daily Deal and the Amazon Daily Deal at the top of the page. I would appreciate if you would use those links to click through to Amazon to help me recover server costs.
Through our years together, I have enjoyed bringing this website to you and being a part of your daily lives. This site started in December 2010 and has posted every day since then.
I am a few years shy of retirement age in the US so I will keep working my day job. My free time will be spent reading through my Kindle library. I will also take every opportunity to listen to the thousands of audio titles I have acquired.
Best wishes to each of you! Read on!

The garden is beautiful – filled with roses, lavender and honeysuckle – and only a little rough around the edges. Which is more than can be said for her next-door neighbour, Ned Mars.

Double Agent – Fast-paced thriller – Only 99p 0 comments

It was supposed to be a quiet family weekend away. But for Senior MI6 officer Kate Henderson, nothing is ever that simple…
Kidnapped in Venice by a Russian defector, Kate knows she’s in trouble. But all is not as it seems. The spy offers her conclusive evidence that the British Prime Minister is a live agent working for Moscow. Kate’s holiday quickly becomes the start of her next mission.
With proof of the PM involved in a sordid scandal and a financial paper trail that undeniably links him to the Russians, the evidence seems bulletproof. But the motives of the defector are anything but clear. And, more worryingly, it seems that there are key people at the heart of the British Establishment who refuse to acknowledge the reality in front of them.
Kate can trust no one, and this mission will push her dangerously close to the edge… but is that the price to pay for the truth?

Returning home after lunch one day, Hercule Poirot finds an angry woman waiting outside his front door. She demands to know why Poirot has sent her a letter accusing her of the murder of Barnabas Pandy, a man she has neither heard of nor ever met.

Poirot wonders how many more letters of this sort have been sent in his name. Who sent them, and why? More importantly, who is Barnabas Pandy, is he dead, and, if so, was he murdered? And can Poirot find out the answers without putting more lives in danger?
