An Apologetic Snippet

I've read all the C J Box Joe Pickett stories.  The newest was released last month. 

I went to the used book store.  No one had turned one in.

I went to the library.  I'm number 395 on the Hold List.

I went to Barnes and Noble and bought the hard back.  With all my discounts, it cost about $16.

I'll finish it tonight and resell it tomorrow.

Sometimes, I just have to shop... and read.

I'll be back tomorrow with deep thoughts and profundities and witticisms.  Right now, I'm going to finish my new book.  I have 120 of the 387 pages left.


  1. A new book in a series you love is hard to put down!!

    1. We put off watching Billions for 20 minutes so that I could finish the last chapter!

  2. WOW! 395 on the wait list? That's a very long list. Does your library do digital loans? Ours does, but there is still a wait list for some books.

    Enjoy your book. I'm reading Neil deGrasse Tyson's latest book, "Astrophysics for People in a Hurry".

    Sending hugs!

    1. I put my name on all the editions - digital, large print, book - I wanted. There are 125 copies in the system, but still.........
      And holding a brand new book made me happy. And I put money in the author's pocket. All in all, it was a win-win situation.
