Thanks to a kind person here, I had a copy on the computer, but
I hadn't got into it much. Then, thanks to another kind person here,
a copy of the book arrived! I was raised by a librarian, I love BOOKS.
So, in honour of my new Spirit Ring, I followed my usual routine for
a new book (when it's one of my favourite authors).
To really enjoy a new book I require:
* A bubble bath
* A glass of white wine (this time I went for Bailey's Irish Cream
instead - thank you Santa)
* Some nice nibblies
* The book (of course)
* My phone
And I had a nice window of time all by myself (my idea of holidays
is NOT a camping trip for heavens sake).
So, the plan was - a lovely hour in the bubbles, to start the book,
then I'll get out and have something to eat, there's something I
want to see on TV this evening, all perfect.
Four hours later I'm sitting in a bath of cold water still reading.
I did get out of the bath, finally, long after the show I'd wanted
to see was over, long past the time I meant to eat, still reading.
I've finished the book now. LOVED it. I need to read it again soon,
to get all the nuances. But it was great!
And that's why I haven't thought about getting a Kindle or anything -
not till they make a waterproof one. There's nothing like a bubble
bath, a glass of wine, and a book you really want to read.
And thanks to the kind people on this site for helping out.
