Bumps In The Road

I have to admit I had a bit of a stretch where I was really enjoying myself. I've been fairly antisocial playing with my books and computer, knitting and so forth. I have always be able to amuse myself, it's less effort isn't it? I never get stuck doing things I don't like when I'm by myself - if I don't like it I just stop. No one else will be disappointed or try to make feel guilty, perfect! But all good things must come to an end -we're having a big inspection at work so everyone's on edge, our hours creep longer and longer. It seems like all my patients have developed issues all at once, but I know it's just because we're all stressed so any little bump looks like a mountain right now. My foot was doing well and is now starting to hurt again, I'm not sure what my next plan of action is. And my ereader - I got a Kobo from Borders and it's essentially a $109 coaster. I've called and Border's customer care service has an interesting way of putting you off. They take your name and number, assure you a tech will contact you in 48 hours - and then I suppose they hope you go away. I'm not sure what I'm going to do from here - they've already refused to give my money back as I'm past the 30 day return policy. Apparently the fact that I have emails dated back to the beginning of January when I first started having problems doesn't count. David has told me to just shelve the whole mess and buy a Kindle but I'm giving it a couple more days. It's just frustrating, I just want it to work and I'm tired of spending time on hold waiting for a customer care representative to once again take my name and number.  In Shawl News I'm only a couple of rows away from being finished - finally! I stopped counting rows awhile ago - when I run out of yarn it's done.

I love my Nook. The thing it can do that Kindle can't is allow me to read ebooks from the local library. This is a huge plus, because it's FREE reading. Once I learned how to use it, I've had no problem at all. However, as long as you don't mind paying for your books, Kindle is a great choice. You won't have problems with it.
