Bad Day to Be Without a Book

As I mentioned in my last Sunday Salon post, I couldn't go to the library this week because it was closed on my regular pickup day (Labor Day Monday). All week I've been going to my bedside table where I normally keep my library stack, and then I remember that I don't have any new books. Bummer.

Today is the worst. I've come down with a cold so I'm not up to doing housework. There is nothing to watch on TV, and I've watched the backlog on my DVR. It is on days like this that I envy the book buyers and the bloggers who review ARCs. Right now, I'd like to be neighbors with one of them so I could zip over and borrow something!

Aww, I wish you'll get better soon - and that you'll quickly put your hand on new, great books!

Hope you feel better soon! I can't imagine being without a book. It would definitely pain me greatly.

There's always the chance to listen to some podcasts, as there are some great ones out there.

Also, Kathy at Bermudaonion has a good recipe book over here.

Michael, I have been a long-time fan of podcasts. However, I tend to save them for when I'm doing housework or right before bed. It feels weird to just sit and listen to one in the middle of the day.
