I have quite a few books. Snort. Good morning, hope you are well. We are fine here. We are fed, relaxed, and rested.
After my shower this morning, I’m going to sneak away on a hunt. I have my battle plan, and I am assured of success. There are a few thrift stores in the area, and I’m going to hit the ones in town. They have books, I have books, I need more books.
My hoarde is not sufficient to meet my demands for books. While I may not have recently read all of the books in my treasure, I still need more books. That’s my line of bullshit, and I am sticking to it.
Recently, I stopped my audible subscription. At first, I just put it on a maintenance hold, but decided this month before I would let it renew, I would just cut it out completely. I use scribd more than audible now, and as soon as my kindle unlimited subscription is set to renew, I’m going to let it go away as well.
This doesn’t mean that I don’t still order as many giveaway kindle books as possible, it’s just that I want to use Scribd for everything I can. The cost is cheaper than both audible and kindle unlimited singly. It’s a thing. However, I am also in love with the printed dead tree version.
Since I sit outside so much, I’ve taken to grabbing a book and relaxing in the patio or the backyard. I even set up the tent on rainy days, so that I can have a cigarette or two and my tea with a good book. It’s a calming serene thing. Yes, I end up in a shit ton of pain from sitting, but that’s life isn’t it.
My big tent is big enough for Duke, master of farting in enclosed spaces, my cot, and my chair. I can also fit a little table in there. It’s my summer she shed. The main drawback, I usually just head inside to go pee.
Electronic books, just aren’t the same. I have a heck of a time seeing the screen in full sun, and the batteries just die on me. I have 2 tablets for my reading pleasure, as well as my cell phone. It’s just not good enough.
That said, I’m hoping to find the goodest of stash enhancements for my library today. Wish me luck. -L
