Well, here we are, finished with the first month of 2009 already. I've had too much free time, so have gotten through many books so far. Well, it's many for me, I don't know how I compare to others on my friends list. In any case, I finished my 11th book this morning. I've been keeping my list current, and I think it's going to be really neat several months down the road to look back and see what I've read as a reminder. I'm going to be going back up to visit [ profile] masterofmusings in less than two weeks, so I'll have plenty of time to read on the bus coming and going, and I'll have some time while I'm there too. So, that's where I'm at right now.

As I was sitting down today to read a book with my Book Port using the built-in synthesized speech I started to think about all of you guys who do a lot of reading. I thought it'd be interesting to find out how you all read your books, and what methods you prefer. The last question is just something I slipped in because I'm curious. So, here goes.

Well, I had intended to sit here in bed all evening and watch TV or read or something. I did the TV thing and caught up on my soap and then I figured I'd do the book thing. Unfortunately, just as I was getting comfortable I remembered that I finished the book I'd been reading on my Book Port and will need to put something new on it before I can read. So, at some point I'm going to have to get up and do that. That's one thing I can't do through a remote connection since the Book Port isn't wireless. Hey, cool idea for a future upgrade. SMILE!

I also just realized that I can get a new book from Audible again because my credit has been renewed. I know I could buy books more than once a month, but I'm kind of cheap. SMILE! And anyway, I figure that if I do this once a month I'll have more books longer.

I don't know if any of you have read any books by Janet Evanovich and I don't remember if I've even talked about her or not. Janet writes all kinds of books, but my favorite series of hers is the Stephanie Plum series. Stephanie is a bounty hunter, but she tends to get herself into a lot of trouble sometimes. Anyway, book twelve is due to be released on June 20th, and I need to decide if I want to use a credit for that or wait until I can get it from the public library. Kind of a tough decision actually because I've got a friend who will be getting the print book the day it's released and she'll be tormenting me with it. So, we'll see.

For a treat this evening, Jim bought Taz and Cally a couple of cans of wet food. They normally get hairball control dry food, but every once in a while we like to give them this. I swear that two cats becomes more like 6 when these cans are opened. Taz came running and Cally was there even before I opened the can. Of course she probably thought I was going to spill water on her or something, so she was disappointed that way. I keep telling her that that's Jim's responsibility, but she doesn't seem to get it. (Hey, any LJ users got the command for tagging another user in an entry? I haven't found it yet. I'm guessing it has something to do with "lj-user" something-or-other, but not sure. I still say that being able to post entries via email is the best invention since sliced bread.)

Anyway, I sort of got sidetracked. So Taz came running, and for ten years old that little guy can still move. I think he was sitting in the window trying to get some evening sun, but he heard that can top pull off and he was there in a matter of seconds. I'm kind of mean to these guys though. I open the can and then immediately walk away from it long enough to throw away the lid. Then I take a knife and divide the can in half because they have to share a big can, they don't get their own. I fill the two bowls and leave them on the counter while I take the empty can and knife over to the sink. I suppose I'm asking for trouble by doing this because even at three Cally still thinks the counter is her territory, but so far they haven't tried that. Then I take a dish in each hand and start making them follow me. Well, they're actually following me anyway at this point, but you get the picture. So by this time they're both meowing like crazy and trying to climb my legs. It's at this point that I realize the wisdom in declawing the front paws. SMILE! So, they got their food finally, and I haven't really seen them since. Taz was snuggling with Jim for a while, but that's about it. They probably had to go and sleep off their meal.

Well, I suppose I should post this so that I can end my remote connection. I've got several books from RFB&D that I got on CD specifically so I'd be able to use them with my Book Port. So, I'm gone for now.
