MY HUSBAND'S SWEETHEARTS

by Bridget Asher


Full of heart (both cheating hearts and broken hearts), this is an unforgettable novel of love and loss, revenge and forgiveness...
Description of book
Lucy Shoreman discovers in one fell swoop that not only has her husband Artie been cheating on her, but that his heart is failing and he's dying.

So in a drunken moment she takes his little black book, and dials up all his former lovers, asking them to schedule their turn caring for him on his death bed. After all, they were there for the good times, so why should she deal with the bad times on her own?

The last thing she expects is that any will actually show up. But one by one, they do. The one who hates him. The one who owes her life to him. The one he turned into a lesbian, and the one he taught to dance. And among them is one person with the strangest story of all…


Reviews

* ‘A laugh-and-cry novel whose plot includes equal proportions of heartache and hope’ Chicago Tribune

*‘Rendered with humour and heart’ People Magazine

* ‘The reader is enveloped by this humorous yet touching tale’ Booklist

I downloaded the last 2 but I think I might skip this one
It looks like we might get more Oz freebies than US freebies this year based on the current drought of freebies from the Sony store at the moment.
Didn't think I would see that happening

I was able to download the book, but not thru the Sony Library. Sony kept giving me an error message - I tried 3 times (cause I'm in USA & site is Aussie? IDK). So I used ORBIT downloading software, and told it to open the file in ADE. Then hooked up my PRS-505 to ADE, and transfer it on there that way. Reading it now!

Thanks tech_au!

I was able to download it through ADE with no problems. I also won a book from a drawing on their Facebook page. AFTER I'd won, it said to email your AUSTRALIAN address (no mention of this when they gave the sign-up link but I should have taken into account that it IS an Australian site.) They were nice enough to send it to me in the US, anyway.

I subscribed last October to get The Schumann Frequency(which I'm reading at the moment) and I used my hotmail address but can't remember if the confirmation email came straight away or not but you do need to click on the link in the confirmation email to be able to get the ebook.
Bookratt, I thought you had to use Adobe ADE when you purchased ebooks from other ebook stores and only used Sony software for Sony purchases. I could be wrong now that Sony has gone epub. I only ever use the Sony software to download Sony freebies.

Now that Sony does EPUB, when the reader library updates it silently steals all the associations away from ADE (.acsm and .epub). I also had to reset these (to ADE) in order to get any of RHA's free books to install (and I had problems somewhere else before I did the reset, as well).

In the past, when I purchased books from other sites besides the Sony Library that used the Adobe ADE format, ADE would automatically open for the download. Then I hooked up my reader to ADE and put books on that way.

When the Sony Library updated to the 3.xx version sometime in 2009, all my book purchases from other sites would start downloading, and the Sony Library would automatically open up & the book would be downloaded there. This is long before the Sony books went to the ePub version.

So, I haven't used the Adobe ADE program in months until yesterday....

Have you followed the steps to re-enable ADE. This is an error msg from Sony (you can tell by the lack of any actual information).

ADE will open this book - the Sony software will not and you must change the ACSM and EPUB associations back to ADE.
