The Great Book Dilemma

Alright, ya'll.

I'm really struggling.

I want to read.

I mean, I WANT to read.

But I am at a loss on how to go about it.

You see, I've had the same 4 books in my suitcase for the last 8 months that I have just avoided like the plague {How to Read a Book, Tales from the 1,001 Nights, Great Expectations, and Prayers of the Faithful.}

I just don't want to read those!

Sure, since we began moving around we have read other books and packed/sold/given them away, but as a whole, I've struggled with not wanting to read since the beginning of the year.

Strike that. Not wanting to read what I had on me since the beginning of the year.

I do have books that I really want to read. I want to finish the other 6 books in the No. 1 Ladies Detective Series. I would like to read the book The Hunger Games by Suzanne Clavette. Love & Respect tops my charts and The Three Musketeers has been calling to me.

However, I don't have any of those books with me.

Canadian book stores are few and far between and one of the big differences here is the price in books. 19.99 for a normal paperback fiction book. Almost double what we would pay in the states. Sheesh.

Plus, we don't have any leftover weight room on our luggage for our next move.


So, we've looked into the local library here and I'm really just trying to stall my desire to read for another 3 1/2 months but I'm not sure how long I can hold out!

Next up...see if Amazon delivers to good ol' Canada.

Can you read it online? Or get kindle for your computer and read it on there!!

You need a Kindle (or something of the like...) Especially if you could take it overseas. Hmm. We should start a "Buy Brittney A Kindle" campaign.

Does your library do e-books?

A Kindle would really be a GREAT idea for you because then you don't have to worry about book weight ever! But for right now, maybe a book swap with other women who are training? It might be a good way to get FREE books while you are there....

OH girl, I totally know how you feel...I hate it when all I have are books that I can't get in to or get excited about reading!

I think the Kindle sounds like a great should check into it!
