Browsing on Amazon to fill in book data and glancing at goodreads SOS group's freebie thread, some kindle edition finds that were free today.

 

Yes, I do know better and the TBR is staggering.

 

I had already read and enjoyed (but still free):  Southern Spirits (Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries Book 1) - Angie Fox  and The Accidental Demon Slayer - Angie Fox  

 

There were more on that thread (skipping to the newest posts that's https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/449475-book-freebies-kindle-nook-author-pub-other?comment=178853157&page=174#comment_178700740 ); some I skipped for no other reason than too many quoted praises in place of the book description ( or already read/downloaded, seemed to be short stories,  serial episodes which I'm not really in the mood to read...).

What Does a Home Warranty Give Homeowners?

The concept of home warranty plans might perplex some homeowners. They might wonder, “Do people really need home warranty plans? After all, homeowner’s insurance should cover everything that warranties would, right?”

Actually, no—home insurance covers household systems and appliances in the event of a fire, flood or other disaster. However, most plans do not offer coverage for general wear and tear.

 



For example, if a home’s refrigerator or water heater simply breaks down one day, the homeowner could end up paying the full price for a replacement if he or she does not have a home warranty. In the case of water heaters, that price could be $500-$1,100. For a new refrigerator, a homeowner could end up spending well over $3,000.

Home warranty plans cover occurrences that homeowner’s insurance policies do not. By paying the affordable home warranty cost, a homeowner can save hundreds or thousands of dollars on repairs and replacements.

Here are two major benefits of getting home warranty plans:

Convenience

When something like a dryer or an AC system stops working, it can be a major hassle. Without a home warranty, a homeowner would not only need to pay out of pocket to have the appliance repaired but also spend time finding a repair company and scheduling an appointment. This could mean waiting around for a service contractor to show up and putting up with the appliance not working in the meantime. On top of that, the homeowner could end up wasting their money if the contractor is not reliable or competent.

Home warranty providers can take all this stress off a homeowner’s shoulders. The best providers have built up networks of experienced, trustworthy service contractors. Whenever something covered under the warranty malfunctions or breaks down, a homeowner can simply submit a service request and have a contractor come to their house.

The homeowner will only need to pay a small fee for the service call. If a system or appliance needs repairing or replacing, the warranty company will cover any expenses beyond that fee.

Peace of Mind

Home warranties give people fantastic peace of mind. Consumers can easily find a Texas home warranty as well as home warranties for almost anywhere in the US. They can trust that their heating, plumbing, dishwashers and other common systems and appliances will stay in good working order. They can also rest assured that unexpected breakdowns will not devour their savings.

The Home Service Club is one of the most trusted names in the home warranty industry. They offer cost-effective, comprehensive home warranty plans in 49 states, including Texas, New York, Florida, Illinois, Oregon and Washington.

A Texan from 2012 wakes up 250 years in the future. How do you think he copes
Miguel Traveler: The Man from Texas - D... Miguel Traveler: The Man from Texas - Daniel McFatter

Miguel Traveler: The Man from Texas - by Daniel McFatter.  ISBN 978-1-5323-6614-7. Published by Brave Mission Publishing, 2016. Reviewer received book from Author as e-book in pdf format.

 

Review by Chris Phillips

 

Miguel wakes up floating in a solution and being cuddled and cared for by “Mama.” There is a lot going on around him and suddenly he is washed out of a large tank of fluid in to the arms of Alice, the Woman in Black. This is the surprise beginning.

 

The story is told from Miguel’s perspective, throughout. It is unusual for a 1st person book to hold the interest of most readers, but this is one of the few that is very well written. There are 3 sections, each proceeded by a poem that nonetheless becomes important to the story. Almost from the beginning there is action, excitement and so many seemingly mundane encounters, but prove to be truly not.

 

“Man is unto himself the Great Work-a puzzle to be opened, explored and ultimately solved.” This quote is almost integral to a good in-depth analysis of the book. This is one book requiring some thought after reading it because of the depth presented.

 

Miguel changes perspective from the dystopian future where “Man Diminished” to the time of his former life in the early 2000s, Part 2, “Once Upon a Time on Farm Road 216.” Much has changed in the long time (undefined but suggested as 250 years in the future from Miguel’s life when he disappeared in 2012). And Miguel must discover it, cope with it and find his own place. It is not until the last moment when the plot climaxes into Miguel’s purpose in life is found and made complete.

 

Although Miguel is the main character and the narrator throughout there are many people enter into the telling. Most of those fit well into the current events of today, especially those from the former life, however, there are so many new types of creatures, people and other entities in the future it sometimes leads to confusion which gradually leads more to an understanding of what Miguel thinks of himself and other humans. The first life is a collection of memories he slowly remembers at first, but becomes vividly clear and integral to the plot and the self discovery of Miguel in the future world.

 

With simulants, enhanced humans, diseased humans, and entities which appear human but have abilities well beyond human normal abilities, the book covers a lot of ground and also reveals, very gradually, that the humans are the core to the situation, problems and solutions.

 

The characters are developed well enough for each one’s purpose in the story. The plot is inexorable and yet very reasonable looking back through the book. It is well developed and carried through with a certain finesse. The writing is usually consistent and apparently Miguel’s memory is very detailed with how the first life and those situations are relayed. There are some difficult passages based on dialect and some in Spanish, notwithstanding these are also discernible with a little thought.

 

This book can be recommended to any readers. There is some adult language, adult situations not involving sex and a lot of extreme violence. Those would be the cautions for younger readers. Those who like post-apocalyptic tales will enjoy this. Those who like psychologically and sociologically based drama will definitely enjoy this.

 

Recommended highly

 

5 Stars.
