1st world problems...

I just ordered 4 books and I screwed up! I bought paperbacks! I kept trying to download them and finally went back and looked and I paid for paperbacks! They are coming in the mail! I tried to cancel the order but the stupid store refused. They said it had already gone to processing so now I have to wait until Friday AND I have to turn the pages! And use a book mark! And everything....

And love like crazy"

At least you can do it. I have all but given up on books. Mostly because I read so much information and articles. But partly because it seems I have attention span of a gnat when it comes to books.

Why won't the store take them back? Do they not have a return policy? If you send them back in the exact condition they came in I don't see why they can't reimburse you and then you can get the e-book versions you wanted.

I just clicked on Kindle. I had notifications. Revisit the books you read in 2018 and see how many you can this year. Revisit the books you read in 2019 and see how many you can this year.

Yes it had been awhile.

It was barnes and noble and they said if there isn't a cancel button then it's too late and they won't cancel. I can return them - yes but now I have to wait until they arrive in the mail and then either run to the post office or drive to the local bookstore to (half hour) to return them. That's what I get for not paying attention....

I tried to do it online then I did the "chat" button then I called the number and did the chat button again. Now I will read... paper books. Sigh.

I love the smell of books

I prefer a real book to an e-book anyday. You just can't beat the smell of paper and turning actual pages

I love to read and could never fall asleep in bed unless I read - might only be two lines but I had to read.

Now my eyes need specs to read and I cannot snuggle down whilst wearing glasses so, I find something to watch on my iPad and that suffices.

I do read in daylight and sitting at my kitchen table.

I love seeing books on shelves but tend to mostly just listen to them on Audible these days!

It makes boring barn work so much better.

I've only bought one audible book that I disliked and gave up on after half an hour. I gave the book a negative review and they let me have a free book to replace it.

Talking about 1st world problems, my husband came back from a trip grumpy. Why, you ask? His business class seat was too big and he couldnít hear what the appetizers were when the resident chef listed them and he had to ask him to repeat and my husband still couldnít hear him so he didnít get any.
Yup.

I was flabbergasted. We donít come from (any) money. I have no idea how he managed to get THAT spoiled.

I just laughed and laughed and got on his poop list as well, along with the chef and the airline.
