Today I treat you to the typical scene that plays out each time I finish reading a book. This could otherwise be called: “Tabitha Jekyll & Reading Hyde”
*stretch* Ahhhhhh, yes that was soooo good. Slaps the cover shut on the book… *scritchity, scratches my sides and yawns just a touch*
*mumbles* Now…what…what to read, what to read. La di da, touloo tooolay come read tooooday!! *a hop skip in her step*
*mosies over to the bookshelf and starts fingering spines*….am I feeling like a little war…a little shapeshifter, some death and dismemberment…zombie robo apocalypse NOW!!!??
*harrumph* Perhaps a bit of sci-fi romance? or fantasy, dragons, trolls and epic battles!!? Bah…I don’t know.
*tootles over and turns on the computer, which undoubtedly kills more what could be reading time, comments on a few blogs, looks on Etsy…gets distracted by pretty pictures on Pinterest and Deviantart, or by whatever I’m currently drawing or painting*
*IN A BOOMING VOICE!* WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING!!!? PICK YOUR NEXT BOOK ALREADY YOU LACKADAISICAL RAPSCALLION! bahhh pfft chill already, ok ok, pull your panties out of…
*clicks open the reading spreadsheet schedule of all books I have accepted for review and have on hand*
*IN THE BOSSY MISS FUSSYPANTS VOICE!* Now that is more like it – You should read this one – it publishes in 3 days – and why haven’t you read it already, hmm hmmm hmmmm??
But I don’t FEEL like reading ANY of these just this minute! *garrumpth, harrumpth* Maybe tomorrow, come back tomorrow.
*IN A SCARY AS HELL GIVE ME NIGHTMARES VOICE!* I Expect All Of These Books To Be Read By The End Of The Week Or You Will Get No Chocolate or Cookies Until Pigs Fly And The Cows Come Home – Do I Make Myself Clear, Reading Slave!!?
*sheepish, utterly subjugated lament* Yes, master, anything you say master…pass me the TBR jar so’s I can randomly draw a title forth and quit with my dilly dallying, master.
*reaches hand in to stir the folded sticky notes and pulls forth…with not an undo amount of whining* Oh come on….Not THAT one!
*folds said paper and tosses it back in the jar…pulls out three more and does the same* GET ON WITH IT YOU INSOLENT CUSS!
*grabs the nearest book within reaching distance…less than a foot away – and starts reading without looking at what it is*
And We’re Off!!
