It was a chilly weekend in Calgary. Minus twenty yesterday and I had to go out. I took a two day travel writing course. It was good and met some really great people. Meeting other people and getting out of the house is part of why I take courses. If left to my own devices, especially on a cold day, I will stay in my jammies and just bum around my home all weekend.
Looks like I need to get good at writing query letters. HEY PICK MY STORY! Will be adding those to my growing list of things to do. As a result I didn’t get around to coming up with a post for today.
After the course I had to catch the bus, it took forever to come and it was dusk. The time when it really starts to get chilly. By the time I got home I was cold, in a week I’ll have adjusted to the cooler weather. All I wanted when I got home was a bath, it’s one of my favourite things. A long soak in a hot tub on a cold day, with a good book.
This is the main reason I haven’t switched to an ereader. For travel, convenience, being able to cart around many books in one compact format is so appealing. I have an ITouch and it works for this purpose but the screen is small. The problem with an ereader is I can’t take it in the bath. This is why I am resistant to get one.
One day I will make the leap but for now the ITouch does the job while travelling and I still have my hard copy for the tub.
Anybody out there read with the ereader in the bath? Is it okay? I suspect I would drop it.
Right now I’m reading “The Hunger Games” by Suzanne Collins, again. I want it fresh in my mind before I see the movie in March. Have you read it? Have you seen the trailer for the movie? I’ve warmed up to Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss, not sure about Josh Hutcherson as Peeta but I think I’m gonna love Lenny Kravitz as Cinna. They seem to have gotten the tone of the movie right and I hope it’s good. I hope it’s really, really good because I loved the whole series.
