Wondering

Can I fall in love with reading? I want to so I 'm giving it a try.
Buying a book is a scary thing for me. What if I don't like it...? What if I don't finish it...? This is what runs through my head while standing in Chapters. I then go to the magazines, buy 1-2 and go home.
As I am sure many of you have, I too have borrowed books from friends and the library. My commitment phobia when trying to buy a book stays neatly tucked away when I borrow one instead. The book or books inevitably sit and never get opened then get returned to the owner.....most of the time months later.

So what is my solution to these odd problems I run into when I come face to face with a paperback? 
Mix it with technology. We (ok Alex) found a cheap e-reader for me on the web, which has now been delivered. I (yes me) downloaded the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris figuring that I know I like the t.v. show....so they might have a chance of getting read. 


I sat for a little while the other day reading and read 33% of the book. That fun little number came from the e-reader. So I made a deal with myself.....read before turning on the t.v., my shows are being recorded anyway.  Good deal I think. More books less t.v.

Thanks to stoping by for a looksee.
I will be out of town for a little over a week on a scrappin' vacation at Memories Manor starting today.
I'm going to try and blog some pictures or layouts while I'm gone. I hope they have WIFI.
                                                                   Have a great week!

I don't know about the series but I will say that I only started reading a little over a year ago (was always a hater before that) and I have just finished my 20th book! Take time, you won't regret it.
