Booorrrringggg... thank goodness for my e-reader

Today I have to have my iron infusion. (I am badly anemic and can't tolerate oral iron, so they've finally decided this is the way to go. In a couple of weeks I should have much more energy. Yay!). Unfortunately, they warned me it would take most of the day. So while I'm sitting there, I'm going to do some reading. I loaded up my Kindle with Monique Martin's Out of Time (I've read the sample, and it's excellent), and H.P. Mallory's Fire Burn and Cauldron Bubble. Oh, and I added Star Trek: Federation just in case I get in a Star Trek mood, because Star Trek moods do happen *grins*.

Honestly, I don't know how I survived boring days like this before my Kindle. I guess I stuffed my purse full of books. But an e-reader is a much handier thing in these situations-- you can stuff your purse with a thousand books and it doesn't get any heavier!


  1. Hope the time passes quickly during your infusion. When I was a child, I was severly anemic. I had to get iron shots in my butt. I was only four, and let me tell you, those are freaking painful! I couldn't walk well for days afterward. Of course, turns out it wasn't an iron deficiency at all, it's a genetic blood cell defect that destroyed the cells. So, the shots were for nothing. Grrr...

  2. I got Karen McQ's name from you...I have that HP Mallory book, too! Are your kids all in school while you get your infusion?
