My Kindle died. This may not mean much to all of you but to me it is like I lost a pet. I have already replaced my pet with a new pet, a Kindle Paperwhite. It won’t be here for a week because I was too cheap to pay $17 for quicker delivery. So I will actually be opening a real honest to goodness book with paper pages during the next week. Thank goodness there are alternatives!
note: people with addictions cannot go cold turkey for long without severe withdrawal symptoms. If they get past the DT’s then they will most likely develop another addiction to compensate. How do I know this? I was a smoker of cigarettes , it took me three tries to finally get off of them. I worked the night shift as an RN and was addicted to coffee. That took some time to get rid of the headaches when I decaffeinated. Each time I got off the “bad” addiction I found a substitute “good” addiction. At first it was painting and then it was reading, the blog and reviewing.
Now my addiction is Kindle. Amazon likes this about me. My family doesn’t mind too much. They always know where to find me, in my reading chair and they always know I will love an Amazon gift card for my birthday. Sometimes the neighbors think I’ve gone on vacation since I’m holed up with my Kindle.
So Deet, what you gonna read til that Kindle gets here? Well….Thanks for asking. Here is what I have handy in paper:
Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins, I read The Hunger Games and loved it, and saw the movie, isn’t that Jennifer Lawrence terrific? I was so impressed at how the movie followed the book. I want to read this next book in the series before the movie comes out in November.
The Arrangement by Mary Balogh, an advance reader copy (ARC) of Mary’s book to be released in August.
To Make A Match by Liana Lefey, another ARC of an August release.
Yes, I will eventually review all of these here on the blog. These should hold me over until that fancy Paperwhite Kindle arrives. I hope I don’t get the shakes beforehand.
