Books and e-books

I love it when people lecture me about how reading an actual book is so much better than reading an e-book. I don't disagree with the fact that the actual book is better. As a matter of fact, I love books. My whole life is linked to a book.  However, I've had a Kindle for a few years now and I love it. Working on cruise ships has made it quite hard to buy every book I want and carry it around, so having a bunch of books I could read during a five or six-month contract was a plus. Also, although Spanish is my first language, I just hate reading translations from books in either English or French; plus, I can't find the original in those languages available in my country; and if I do, it's way too expensive. 
So, yeah, I love it when they lecture me about it. I do think the smell and the feel of a book in your hands is priceless. I remember someone telling me once: 'you're not going to buy one more book until you've finished reading every book you already have in your library'. I actually did it. 
Still, it's just like, not enough.
So, when this happens, I just can't wait for people to finish so I can go back to my kindle and keep on being hooked by a lovely story I just can't put down.  Perhaps next time I'll find a book in the bookstore I just can't go home without...even if it's a translation.

I feel so happy right now. Don't ask why, there are no special reasons for it, I just find myself very happy.

Things are not peachy, there are a lot of things that still need some changing, but I think that what needed to be changed inside of me is in its rightful place at the moment.

I am happy.

And it feels SO good.

Thank you, My Lady, for the road has been bumpy, but you've never given up on me and have never let go of me.  Blessed be.

Dear Santas

I have read what you wrote for me the past few days and I'm in love with them. I apologize for not having written before tonight, but life at sea has prevented me from doing it earlier.

Just wanted to say, once again, thank you.

*raises fist*

Stupid, random, spamming comments like this are just making me feel more certain about my decision of not renewing my paid LJ account.

That is really helpful. It provided me a number of ideas and I'll be placing them on my web site eventually. I'm bookmarking your blog and I'll be back. Thanks again!

So many freaking comments in such a small amout of time. Is it a seasonal thing, maybe?

This has never happened on DW. Not once.

This year has sucked for me in terms of writing, but well, I know it's happened basically thanks to all the changes in my life. I haven't lost hope, though. I'll be boarding the Allure on Nov 12 (YAY!) and I'0m going to be working on my sesas while I'm there. Writing on the pc is a no no right now....so, I've been thinking about going back to the basics and write on a notebook so that my he-muse returns.

I actually think it's exciting to do it like that, weird, I know, but I'm looking forward to it. I can use one of the crew pcs once I'm on the ship and I'll be typying my heart away before the deadlines, so yeah...I think it's gonna work out ;)
