Reading Slump: Chocolates

Trying to read again, after a couple of days on hiatus. My worst, unhealthiest craving has got to be chocolates in bed, before bed, just so that I can get my reading mojo back 😅 It’s either chocolates or nachos, but I ran out of nachos…

Haven’t read much lately. Wonder if it has anything to do with my last read (I, Who Did Not Die), which was rather heavy on the heart?

Don’t know.

I was so ‘tired’ yesterday that I listened to Columbine (Dave Cullen) on Audible (I am still not that into audiobooks), and in less than 5 minutes, Zzzzzz was creeping in so I quickly switched off my Fire and fell asleep almost immediately. Audiobooks, no matter how revolutionizing and important (specifically toward the visually impaired), isn’t my cuppa tea… Not quite yet. Great lullabies, though…

This is all. Came in here to rant about a reading slump and chocolates. Brilliant. Now back to bed. Back to reading. Back to chocolates…

Doggone it, Oasis.

This has been going on for two years now. Black Friday’s gone. Cyber Monday’s gone. Still, like I said, it’s on-going.

Thought bubble 1: I can’t read with this tiny, stupid little crack on my Paperwhite. 

Thought bubble 2: Sure you can. It’s only a small ass crack.

Thought bubble 3: Just get a new one. Check-out that Oasis, damn it’s so fine.

Thought bubble 4: Oh yeah, those buttons, especially. Mm-mmm

Thought bubble 5: Let’s go online. 

Thought bubble 6: OMG. It’s still $250. Seriously? I’m gonna have to pay $250 for a Kindle?

Thought bubble 7: Whatever happened to the Voyage? That was cheaper!

Thought bubble 8: Dammit. Didn’t you know? It’s always been $250, you dumbass.

Thought bubble 9: There are other brands, you know. Like that weird name. Tolino! Nook? Booze?

Thought bubble 10: FFS, just stick to the Kindle brand, please. You’re not young anymore.


Thought bubble 12: The Paperwhite’s working just fine. So is the other Kindle. So is the Fire. You don’t need an upgrade. Not now. $250 will turn into $150 some day. 

Thought bubble 13: Run along, guys. See you next week.

Thought  bubbles 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 & 12: See you next week.
