Today we are celebrating our fantastic Geeky Lover’s Birthday!! YAY Susi is turning…20 (we agreed on 20 right? lol) . If you don’t know it already Susi (@Susi_Sunshine) is a twitter addict *hides from the rock throwing*, by that I mean that she’s often on twitter (for my very pleasure) but also that she loves to torture authors by adding a Twitter Style question in their interviews. *g* So I thought it would be great to keep torturing people by asking her friends for Twitter Style birthday wishes. *yes I’m evil*.
Happy Birthday Susi!!

Nothing can stop freelance thief Sasha Smirnov from saving her planet — except, Dirk, the gorgeous ambassador with polychrome eyes. Is it lust or designer pheromones? He is hot, too hot to resist — or forget. A single, sizzling kiss burns him into her memory, and her body, but she can’t afford to stop for passion, let alone love.
Sasha needs to get as far away from Dirk as possible and take the classified data she stole with her. So she stows away on a ship outward bound, only to discover Dirk’s the pilot. Now she can’t get away from him, or the system, but …

It’s Christmas Eve, and Grady Hobart is feeling anything but “nice.” Not only is he working the graveyard shift at the Traffic Town Truck Stop, but he hasn’t had a customer in over two hours!

Unfortunately, Cherry isn’t there to tempt Grady with her feminine wiles; only to buy her nightly stash of lottery tickets, one more sucker hoping to strike it right with a little bit of luck—and a heaping …

When tragedy strikes Michele Windsor’s world, she is forced to uproot her life and move across the country to New York City, to live with the wealthy, aristocratic grandparents she’s never met.

This week, we travel to Siena, Italy, site of much of the action in Anne Fortier’s novel, Juliet. With a modern day woman tracking one of her ancestors back to Siena and possibly the source of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, it is sure to bring up romantic images of ancient Italian cities: cobbled roads, lush greenery, palazzos, quaint shopping and more. Here to reinforce these images are my pics (k, not really mine…I only wish…but ones I’ve found). Enjoy the tour!

Today is my last free day before starting work again, and as it is usually, my to do list would keep me busy for at least 4 days: I would like to take a nap (yep, very important to get some rest after weeks of going to bed around 2am because of watching movies and reading), read my book, watch series, bake and that are only the fun stuff, I left off cleaning my room and organizing my shelves and putting away all the Christmas presents. *sighs*
So I won’t keep you longer, I’ll just announce this week’s winners. So sit back with your cocoa (or Irish coffees for some ;-p lol) and read on to find out whether you were favoured by random.org this time*

USA Today reports that its bestselling list will begin to feature ebooks this week and notes that since the holidays which many people have been gifted with an ereader for Christmas. That the top six books on the list, the ebook versions outsold their print counterparts while in the top 50, nineteen books sold more ebooks than print. Whether this trend will grow or remain static remains to be seen but it does lead credence that Ebooks are becoming the new Mass Market as the print sales for that format has fallen in recent months.
A few weeks ago an author claimed and wrote a book that there was a way to manipulate Amazon Kindle charts, however this would involve buying your own book everyday as well as posting reviews and voting for them. I personally didn’t think it …
