Really Important Decisions About Books
The most stressful part of my Hurricane Experience was that I spent the whole day reading Game of Thrones on my phone and I knew that, SHOULD I LOSE POWER, I would have to stop reading the book in order to conserve my iPhone battery for emergencies. (Power stayed on, and my stress was for naught … THIS TIME.)
The second most stressful part of my Hurricane Experience was finishing Book One without having purchased Book Two, and the Internet and 3G service having VANISHED IN THE STORM. I solved this problem by going to bed at 10 p.m.
The third most stressful part of my Hurricane Experience is today, the morning after, trying to decide if I should buy Book Two on my phone now that the internet is back or if I perhaps should learn from my folly and dependence on technology and purchase a physical copy. It could be a useful training manual should Shit Ever Get Real. Might be nice to have around. But also involves leaving the house, taking my life into my hands, holding a book while reading, which, now that I’ve been reading on my iPhone, seems CUMBERSOME. What do you think?
