I get a lot of books to preview and with all my travels the last few months they have been stacking up. I really need to get a Kindle so I can read more while on the road (if you can help with getting a Kindle please let me know). In the meantime, my new book queue has been stacking up! I currently have six new books in my queue. I am running a contest for free copies of one of the books. Check out the six books in my new book queue and let me know your feedback on any of them.
