This is terrible! It’s awful! What am I to do? Someone help me!!!!
Alas, once again I have spent far too much money on books. Last night, at approximately 12:53 AM after watching re-runs of Grey’s Anatomy on which I am just now getting hooked (I know I’m behind don’t judge me), I decided to go to the bookstore. So I pulled out my Kindle and happily perused through the online store.
Sixty dollars later when my eyes could no longer remain open for fear they would burn out, I finally decided to go to bed and vied with a mixture of different emotions.
One – Depression. I’m sixty dollars poorer than I had been a half hour earlier which is bad because my Yankees internship has ended (which just adds MORE depression) and I no longer receive a paycheck. Fail.
Two – Elation. I have tons of new books now! I can never resist books, whether printed or in e-form. And now that I am headed to London in eight days (holy crap!) I have come to the painful realization that I cannot take my books with me. But, but, but … what will I do without them? How will I survive without my giant bookshelf? So many words left unread! So many stories forced into a three-month silence!
But never fear, the Kindle is easy to transport. Currently, I am taking 171 books with me. Not only on the plane, but they’re all coming on my carry on! How cool is that? And according to the article below, with the rate I buy books on the thing, I am extremely environmentally friendly by paying back everything I consume at a MUCH faster rate than three books a month.
BUT I HAVE TO STOP BUYING BOOKS! I don’t have time to read all 171 books on an eight-hour plane ride (although the last plan I was on was supposed to take only eight hours and we ended up on the damn thing for SIXTEEN just sitting on the runway in Boston of all godforsaken places so maybe I”ll have more time than I think). It’s dangerous! Some people are alcoholics, some people are addicted to weed. I’m addicted to books.
A Few Updates For You
- Lua has posted the first portion of her new story “Lighthouse” on Serial Central and it is AWESOME! You should head over and check it out.
- I WROTE LAST NIGHT! I have four sections complete of my story “Ensnared” for Serial Central and will post the first one this Thursday, so again, keep that in mind.
- Rescue Me will henceforth be known by a new title, The Unopened Letter. This way I avoid confusion with the FX firefighter show and it sounds like a much more literary book. Yes, this does entail much more writing, but I believe it will be much better this way. It will give the novel more of a mysterious feel and hopefully keep readers guessing.
