(Portia: I edited this post in for Tom. He’s having computer drama too)
Sorry kids- I’ve been battling a stomach bug that has been kicking my a$$ this week, I’ve been living on flat tiger ale and saltines and the smell of perfume (never mind food) has been making me gag. So I’ve mainly been reading. Mostly things I have in the house, like the “Tales of the City” series and others. I’ve also been using the Kindle app on the iPad I was given for my birthday a few years ago. Originally I thought “I’ll never use an e-book thingy- I like REAL books!” but then a few years ago when I had the flu I decided to read some of the “Mapp & Lucia” series and dragged out my 80’s era omnibus hardcover and settled it’s bulk on my chest. Then I pulled out the iPad and (at the time anyway) found a bunch of the books online for free, and I was off to the races. If you’re an Amazon Prime member you get a free book a month. Sometimes they aren’t that great, but if you hate them, that’s okay, you can delete them or just let them sit there in the cloud on your account.
Books? Movies? TV?
I’ve also been using Prime to watch video on my TV via Roku, which also does Netflix Streaming. Of course now that Netflix has two or three decent series they’re raising the price 10%, which sucks. But I don’t have cable or Dish, so I guess I can pony up the extra $1.
So, any suggestions on Books? Movies? TV? I should be watching while I’m under the weather? Anyone know why, although since Sunday I have existed on saltines and Canada Dry I seem to have gained weight? Let me know in the comments and hope to be back in the saddle next week.
