This is the first in a series of posts hereafter aptly titled: "What I'm Reading, Yo".
Yo. Here's what I'm reading: Dreams of Joy by Lisa See. Now here's the problem: it's a sequel. Yes, I hate sequels, they make me want to cry and scream and possibly throw things. Wait a minute, that's not true. I LOVE sequels. I love trilogies. I love series-eys, I love BOOKS. So that can't be the problem. But I'll tell you what is: the first book.
The first book, Shanghai Girls I loved. I really did. Also I hated it. You see, there was this really really sad part. And when I read it, I had to throw it across the room. I had to. You'd have understood if you were there watching me read.
The problem isn't that I'm a reformed book thrower (I'm not, throwing books is one of the chief pleasures in my life). The problem is: I'm reading the sequel on my e-reader. I'm sure you can put two and two together: I don't want to throw my Kobo. As my three year old son would say: "That would be TRAGICAL!"
I'll let you know how it goes (whether I am forced to throw it or not).
I wonder if: "thrown in a fit of fury" is covered by Kobo's warranty? I think it would be funny to call and ask.
"Oh hello! Yes, I had a question: Is "Thrown in a fit of fury" covered by my warranty?"
"I threw my Kobo. Is that covered? I can assure you, it wasn't an over-reaction."
"Were you reading the fourth book in the Twilight series?"
"No. It was a Lisa See novel."
"In that case, sorry. No. But I am authorized to put a ten dollar credit on your account to go toward your next e-book purchase."
"But my Kobo is smashed!"
"Ma'am, I have to take a piss now." click.*
Yep. That's how it would go down.

*don't you hate it when people call you "ma'am"? It makes me want to slap the offending person silly. Or throw an e-reader at them. Have YOU ever thrown a book? I can't be the only one. If so, do tell: which book?
