random post about my ereaders! :)

A kobo was an ereader put out last year before borders went belly up. their issue with epub books is finally fixed. I got my reader authorized automatically. now I have two ereaders with 150 books on both, 40 on kindle.

and the dtb (dead tree books=paperback and hardbacks) pile  keeps growing. Books are a security blanket. there is no shame in that.

i read to escape my neighbors

I admit that I hate my neighbors! last night they took a bird feeder they gave me. All they do is sit around and judge other. Nothing better to do huh? Truth: I hate their greed and when I tell them to leave me alone, they don;t. They're even asking me for gas money because they're broke. Neither of them give me rides. The power of NO will be on my lips forever when I talk to them. 

I read to escape my neighbors. 34 books listed and more where that came from on goodreads.com.

random bitch

I was content last night until my loud mouth neighbor started yammering away. I asked what all the yelling was about and she claims she wasn't yelling. If I can hear her she must be...cause there is not way I can hear clear sentences with my door shut over my a/c.
 then she claims she can't afford gas for the car when she is buying 5.00 a day for a starbucks habit. She asked me for gas money when she doesn't give me rides anywhere. 
 This morning, I found an entire bread loaf on my front step. I broke half of it up for the birds. No wonder my cat was going nuts this morning!

not feeling good

after grocery shopping, my back started to hurt. I tried to focus on a book, read a chapter each of two separate books. I took a nap.

freaking book crazy!

want to talk book crazy? I have 415 books in my place. I have to read 75% to get any new books in. 104. I’m not a fast reader anymore. my challenge for the summer is to read 200. to read the 75% I’d have to read 16 books a week to finish my the end of summer. this challenge will last through 2011. 3 books a week; yeah right. realistically I could read 50. I’ve already read 13. (out of the 50)

(the character in the deal breaker is Myron Bolitar, my error)

deal breaker review

i’m reading THE DEAL BREAKER by Harlan Coben. Morton Botilair. He’s a sports agent who gets involved in a murder case. His client may be involved. How does he always get into this stuff? A real developed character with his wealthy friend, Win.

I’m really enjoying how this character does cop work. Harlan Coben whips his reader in a 360 degree spin to develop intriguing plots. Creative license lets a writer do that and, remember, it’s fiction. Some points, like how police procedure works has to be factual.

Well, have to get some zzzz’s.
