Oops I did it again

I was reading a very good book (A Gentleman by any Other Name) and put it down Saturday morning. Now I can't find it! The book gremlins, closely related to those pesky little dryer gremlins who take such delight in stealing socks, made off with it. I'm sure of it.

Three days I've spent looking for that puppy. I've started a couple of other books - but I want to read that one.

(thought I'd give anyone reading this a break from the angst going on all over the place)

'til later

And Maili - you told her ;-)
author to cross off my to be tried list

When you catch up with those gremlins could you ask them if the could PLEASE return the library book that they ran off to me! I'm about to get charged for a book I have definitely returned!

CindyS said...

Yeah, and ask them about my mind because I lost it sometime this week. My husband would appreciate getting it back before blood is shed ;)

Have you checked your fridge or freezer? I know, sounds daft, but um, on occasion, I've put books in there LOL. I once had to replace a library book because I lost it, only to find it in my freezer stuck behind some ice cream, weeks later. I probably need my head examined.

ROTFL, Lanie. I mean I have been known to put odd things in the freezer but never a book. (BG)

Yeah, I keep noticing that the alarm clock is parked on the back of the toilet too.

(There actually was a reason why I picked up the alarm clock the other morning--couldn't find the off switch--but it does look ominous on the toilet.) Maybe I'll put it in the freezer later.

Lanie and Suisan, you guys are too funny!
I actually have two gremlins (my younger brothers 9 and 11) who will hide my books if I leave them lying around. And my dad will move my bookmark, or close the book if it's open on the page I left off with.

lol I've had that happen a few times, but not so much lately since our apartment is so small. But most times it's things that get lost on my desk. It's scary, I tell you.

Those darned little gremlins steal my reading glasses when they take your books.

Hmmm...library books in the freezer. maybe!! I'll check in the morning!
