I loved the above linked article. It tells about the wonders of the Kindle.
As you know, I love my Kindle. I can carry most of my books with me wherever I go. I do audiobooks on my commute, so that helps me get through a lot more books than I normally would, but my kindle helps me get through a lot more, especially now that I can’t check out physical library books.
I’m so glad that I found another kindle lover with the author of the article. I know there are more of you out there. Speak up!
I went away for a weekend with the family. I live with them, so it’s not a big deal with the shelter in place orders. The place where we are has a pool, with strict rules of use. I go in and do my laps and get out. No dawdling. Wash down everything that was used.
Normally, I would sit down and read a book poolside. This trip, nope. Other than the rules not really allowing it without wearing a mask, I forgot my book!
I forgot my book! How could I do that? I do have my Kindle, but I don’t really want it out by the pool. I also have my textbook for my class, which is technically what I am supposed to be reading. It is rented though, so that doesn’t go out near water, either.
I am headed home to get back to work for a training for a couple of days. I’ll come back up after repacking. Hopefully this time I’ll remember the paper book. I am sure I’ll forget something else, though.
I am used to authors asking me to review their books. I am usually honored to be asked. Lately, I have been warning the authors and publishers that I am behind and while I’m willing to read the books, I’m probably not getting to it for a while. Most of the time, they send me a copy of the book anyway. I am honest. It’s really going to be a while before I get them read and reviewed. A few I’ve read and rated but haven’t reviewed yet. Full disclosure up front.
Today I got a message from an author, asking for a review. I gave her my usual response. Sure. I’ll read it, but I have several months of books to finish before I can get to it. She said ok and sent me a link to her book. “It’s on Kindle Unlimited.” Well, that’s new. No problem, though, since I have a Kindle Unlimited subscription, but they are usually emailed or mailed to me.
The funny part, though, is the book’s topic – Procrastination. Yea yea. I’ll get to it.
I wrote my what are you reading Wednesday post earlier this week, and figured out how to schedule it. I planned on touching it up a bit before actually posting it, but it decided it was good enough. All the info was there, but it wasn’t exactly in complete sentences. It got posted on Wednesday, and that was my goal for the year. So, I guess I started out ok.
I am really enjoying my kindle/library book and hope to finish it today. I woke up because of coughing from asthma and allergies, so I cancelled my other plans for today.
Today isn’t going to be as much of an adventure as I thought, but I can at least attempt productivity. I managed to feed the cats so far. They appreciated it.
