RIP IV Challenge

Image
Carl from Stainless Steel Droppings is again hosting the Readers Imbibing Peril(RIP IV).  This will be my third year (2007, 2008) playing along, and this is my favorite book challenge each year! 

Mystery.
Suspense.
Thriller.
Dark Fantasy.
Gothic.
Horror.
Supernatural.
The desire for the thrill that comes with this kind of reading drifts in on the autumn winds. You breathe it in and it takes hold of you, tempting you to late nights, book-in-hand, turning pages and starting at every unknown noise. Something wicked this way comes…
I'm again going to be participating in the Peril the First: Read Four books of any length, from any subgenre of scary stories that you choose.

9 Free Short Stories from Barnes & Noble

Image
I go to Barnes and Noble once or twice a week to use the wi-fi service they offer while my daughter is at dance.  The first time I went there, I was checking out the website and saw the e-reader they offer.  I figured I'd download it and keep some books on my laptop for when I'm without internet while out.  You can download it to your iphone, blackberry, pc or mac.  When you download it, you can also download some free books.  I got a bunch of great books for free already!

They also have 9 free short story audiobook downloads.  Each one is about an hour long.  At checkout, they show up as a penny, when you checkout though it zero's out.  I selected paypal to get past the cc screen. 

Here are the 9 short stories available to download for free ~

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
Merrano of the Dry Country
Ysrael: An Unabridged Story from Drown
Truth or Dare: from The Day I Ate Whatever I Wanted

Review ~ 72 Virgins by Avi Perry

Image
A suspense-thriller about a nightmare scenario-a countdown to a Mumbai-style attack on U.S. soil, where the FBI, the Israeli Mossad, the US-based Iranian clandestine terror network, and the Islamic Jihad fraternity, all engaged in a timeless conflict, which plays out to a crescendo that comes to a head before the dramatic conclusion. The story offers an ample dose of realism, a cast of intense characters who engage in love, lust, and violence. It portrays the Jihad culture with its rationale and the volcano that breeds an irrational obsession with death. Moreover, it builds on the Jihadists' motivation for targeting so many innocents and exploiting the victims' massacre as a stepping-stone to their dream of eternal paradise next to Allah's throne. The real question is not whether Jihad terrorists' plots will ever cease to emerge-there is no chance of that. The question the book seeks to answer is, will the next one be stopped before it's too late?
