Well, I had myself a bit of a scare last night. I turned the computer off in the morning before I left for work and turned it on when I got home. I went and opened Microsoft Reader and two of my new books didn’t seem to be there!!!! ACCKK!! I couldn't find either The Fifth Favor nor Bone Deep. Now you have to know me to know how quickly I panic when I think I’ve lost something. My sisters know. They laugh. I don’t know how many times I’ve panicked over lost keys only to discover they were in my purse all along. I compensate for this by simply not looking for things. That’s why I haven’t looked for my prescription sunglasses for a month now; because if I can’t find them, then I'll figure they are lost and then I’ll panic. I know – doesn’t make sense but it works for me. Anyway, I tried not to panic when the two books weren’t there. Instead I calmly went to the confirmation emails I received from the publishers and they were both there for downloading in the emails so I “opened” both of them in Microsoft Reader. I am frighteningly clueless about stuff like this, but I have a feeling that once I turn the computer off, I’ll loose them again. Somehow I’ll have to figure out where/how to save them.
I had briefly started The Fifth Favor the night before and of course when they got ‘lost’, I lost my place. See, for those who are new to this, you can open Microsoft Reader where you last read. I still need to figure out how to bookmark the spot in ereaders. No one has mentioned that and I can see it being an issue if I’m about half way done a book. I started Bone Deep this morning before work and have to say – I did NOT want to stop reading. I didn’t turn the computer off either. I didn’t want to risk losing the book or my place in the book!
