Time For A New Sled...etc.


At least twice a month we recieve from our local Kia Dealer, ads begging us to trade in our Kia.. This is the most creative so far..

Inside the card claims...they  NEED used Kias because they are in high demand. They will give us $7000.00 for our sight unseen 2007 Kia... 

HO HO NO NO .

PLUS if we bring this car in within 3 days, and trade up for a new Kia,  we will also receive a $500.00 Visa card.

 HO HO NO NO


Niki Heat Series about a tough, professional NYPD homicide cop who leads the Homicide Divison In NY

I found the above book for my Kindle at our library. Book 2  in a series of 7... I went back and read book 1, 3 and 4 in the series and OH NO... 5, 6 and 7 were missing in action from the library. I promptly went to Amazon and bought all 3. I have now finished book 7 and there is no 8, and I really do not like to wait.... this is the first time I have ever read 7 books by one author one behind the other...

Sooooooo.......do you have a brand new KIA now? I thought about you today as I took a break from my work and sat outside admiring the sun shine through and on my elm tree! I took a pic just for you but couldn't post it to your Facebook page. I will send it by email tomorrow! I know how you love all things sunshiny!

Used Kia's are in such demand because of people like you who say HO HO NO NO and won't give them up for a trade in. :)
I've never read any of the Niki Heat books but I watch Castle all the time. I guess I never realized that the books were for real I thought it was something that was made up for the show

How sweet of Linda to think of you when seeing the sun through the trees. I think of you often; mainly when I'm walking the dogs on the golf course - so that's every day! I'm sure you ignore those ads from the car company! I LOVE Santa's sled with a flat; do you have it on FB? Mmm, re reading the same author one after the other; I often do that and then suddenly I cotton onto a new writer and will read their book. All on Kindle. Don't know how I survived PK (pre-Kindle) days! Have a wonderful week. Jo

Hello, I love to watch the show Castle. I did not know the books were real. I wonder if KIA raises the prices of the new KIA's by $7000. It has to be some kind of gimic. I think Toyota did the same thing with our Matrix.

Happy Tuesday, have a great week!

Castle is one of my favorite TV shows. I've read the Heat series too.
LOL on Kia...they will give you 7,500.00 on your old car but WHO will the pay the several thousands dollars balance left on what a new one would cost? LOL

The things in the door way are: against the door a darling dog doorstop made by Cinnamon the dog's Dad. I won it in a drawing last year, the wheelie thing is an exercise wheel to use on the floor. You roll it forward while holding onto the handles it is a good stretch helper

I watch the show Castle but thought it was a stand alone. Are the shows based on the book by the real Castle or are the books based on the show?

Cute cartoon - and AMAZING header! Car dealers are creative, aren't they, trying to make it look like they're doing you such a big favor! HO HO HO.

Have a wonderful week before Christmas.

I watched Castle and now it is new ones.



I thought the books was just a story not that he is a real author.

Interesting.

That is a very cute ad!

EG CameraGirl said...

Gotta love how hard car dealers try! Ho Ho Ho! I've seen the Castle TV show but did not know there were books!

Inger said...

I get those offers too for the Jeep, but who knows what they will talk you into buying instead. Are those books really that good? I must check them out on my Kindle.

Rose said...

We have had that with our Toyota...I don't remember if they offered us a specific amount, but the part that they needed used Toyotas...LOL We still have it...so reacted the same way you did.

I take it the books must have been good for you to read them all...plus the buy them!

Rose said...

I meant buy the rest of the series.

DeniseinVA said...

Well, if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is :) Book sounds good.

Dory and the Mama said...

Wanting to read all the books in a series is the sign of a good author! We get the same ads. letters, etc. from the Chevrolet dealer wanting hubby's car.
