I love books. Actually I LOVE stories!!! , they come alive and I remember the stories better if I listen to them on Audio books. Just the way my brain works, I guess ;-) I downloaded a free book (series of stories) to my samsung galaxy y and find reading in small blocks of words, alleviates my overstimulation of seeing a bunch of words on a page or pages, and I can read and get a story out of it.

Time Traders (a series)

Time Traders - Andre Norton

What a jewel of a book find.  On a whim I downloaded this book to my phone after installing the android Kindle app.  I am new to digital books and have always had a difficult time reading regular books so I didn't want to waste any money in the case I did not enjoy reading on my phone.  So I downloaded several freebies, this was one of the freebies.  What an enjoyable read, I could not put it down, I think my wife was getting jealous that I had my face in my phone reading all the time :-).

 

Anyway I don't want to spoil the book for others, so I'll say it's about time travel, space travel and aliens.  The title and the books description on Amazon is not that grabbing, like some books are... that's why this is a buried jewel to me.  I'm already on the next in the series, which is called "The Defiant Agents" If you got to this website for Andre Norton (http://andre-norton-books.com/archive/Index4_Series.htm#Time_Travel_series), it will say that Galactic Derelict is next, when I started reading it, it seemed to be a repeat of Time Traders, (possibly the site I downloaded it had the title switched up??) but I am now on The Defiant Agents and it picks up where Time Traders left off, rather than repeat the same story.

I'm still trying to figure out what other authors, Alice Mary Norton (aka: Andre Alice Norton, Andre Norton,  Andrew North and Allen Weston) writing style is like, she's all her own style, I like it.  Happy reading!
