Kindle Woes

I ❤ my Kindle, like seriously love it. I love that I can take it everywhere with me and I practically have my whole library at my disposal. I also love checking out books from my library. Call me lazy if you want, but I never have to leave my house again when checking out books with my Kindle (or buying books for that matter). It’s a dream come true.

You’re probably asking yourself why the title is Kindle Woes if all I’m doing is praising my Kindle. Am I right? Well, I did something stupid the other day and I’m sure it will happen again. It’s just the nature of owning a Kindle. It’s not the Kindle’s fault, but it’s still a woe.

I wanted to check out A Wrinkle in Time so I could read it before the movie release. The problem is there are 100+ other people who had the same idea. I decided to just buy the Kindle edition rather than waiting in line so to speak since it was only $7.00ish. The funny thing is I forgot I bought it. I thought I had it checked out and time was running out. When I went into Barnes & Noble in San Francisco, I decided to buy, that’s right, a paperback version of A Wrinkle in Time so now I have two copies! #epicfail

I wish I could return the Kindle version because, truth be told, I’d rather keep the paperback version now that I own it so it can sit on my shelf in my library. It’s not like I don’t have two copies of other books. I mean I have seven copies of Harry Potter and the Philospher’s Stone, but that’s different. It’s my most favorite series. I’ve never read A Wrinkle in Time. What if I hate it? What am I going to do with two copies?! 😫

What would you do? Would you just keep both copies so you have one for your physical library? (That’s what Corey’s telling me to do.) Or, would you return the paperback edition since that’s the only edition you can actually return? I know this isn’t a big deal, but it’s causing me huge Kindlexiety. 😂

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Today’s topic is “Ten Books I’ve Decided I’m No Longer […]

February Book Club

In February, my book club read How to Train Your Dragon by Cressida Cowell. I’ve already read the first two books in this series and I was excited to have my book club read the first book and discuss it. Here’s what we all thought: Everyone liked the movie better than the book. Almost everyone […]

Anne of Green Gables Readalong Schedule

Those who read my Anne of Green Gables Readalong post know that I want to do a readalong. Almost everyone who commented on the post, IRL, or on Instagram told me March would be better for them than April. Since my “dream team” and I have done successful readalongs in the past, I decided to […]


Review: Reaper

This year, I’m participating in a Listopia Challenge on Goodreads. I chose a Listopia list at the beginning of the year to read at least six books from. I chose Books by Utah Authors and Reaper is my first read from the list I chose. Reaper wasn’t what I was expecting at all. I thought […]

A New Bookish Tradition

While Corey was at his conference in San Francisco last week, I bummed around the city a little bit. One of my favorite places is Ghirardelli Square because of the little shops they have there. I stopped off in one of the shops called Lola because it made me think of LOLA AND THE BOY […]
