Cyprus Life – in pictures vs Fylde Coast Musings

Our new life in Cyprus began in early March 2004. Originally from a small mill town in Heywood, Lancashire (United Kingdom) we moved overseas spending a glorious 12 years in Limassol. Feel free to read my posts and view my many #photosofCyprus. However in 2016 we had to return permanently to UK due to family ill health. We're now living on the Fylde coast where the river Wyre meets the Irish sea in the north west of England. More places for us to discover as this part of the UK is not so familiar to us either.

The only way to shop – without leaving the house!

I do so hate shopping!

Any kind of shopping really, except maybe when we’re haggling for stuff that’s caught our eye in the streets and bazaars of Egypt 😉

Then shopping becomes fun for a while but even that gets kind of tiring and frustrating after a bit – so you have to spread your shopping days out when you’re in Egypt… Little and often, is the way.

Anyway, back to the reason for this post!

This is my kind of shopping. Shopping online – it’s so much fun and it doesn’t feel like shopping at all. Paying for it is quite painless too 😀

So for my shopping today, I was browsing my twitter account @CyprusPictures and the Amazon Daily Deals tweet popped up there. It wasn’t a book I particularly fancied but I clicked anyway and then had a mooch around in the Kindle Store for a couple of authors I like.

I was really looking for some Amelia Peabody novels for my Kindle but I didn’t like the prices. Both me and my husband are reading this set of Egyptian themed novels by Elizabeth Peters and given our love of Egypt, we’re enjoying them immensely.

So, if I could have found some versions for Kindle in a cheaper version than picking up the paperback novels from Amazon or then of course, I would have clicked “that” button. But it wasn’t to be – today…..

Agatha Raisin and the Quiche of Death

Instead, I’ve taken the first M.C. Beaton (Agatha Raisin series) and The Quiche of Death and I’ve finally succumbed and purchased The Istanbul Puzzle by Laurence O’Bryan. I didn’t enjoy the Da Vinci Code but I’ve been informed this novel is supposed to be a much more plausible a story.  We shall see….

“A brutal murder. An ancient temple. A long-lost treasure. Buried deep under Istanbul, a secret is about to resurface with explosive consequences…
Sean Ryan arrives in the ancient city to identify the body of his friend and colleague Alek Zegliwski. Alek has been savagely beheaded, his body discovered near the sacred archaeological sit of Hagia Sophia in Istanbul….”

I’m slowly but surely, stocking up on my Kindle eBooks ready for my long hot summer in Cyprus 🙂
