Today I'd like to make a confession. I have committed a crime of the heart. Many people will condemn me but I must come clean.

I confess that I am a cheater. I've done it over and over and over. I have tried not to but it is just to easy.

I want to apologize to him and hope that he forgives me. Here goes:

I've cheated on my books with...gosh this is so hard...with my KINDLE...ok, I said it.

Yes I feel better. But I would do it again..and yes, I did it just before writing this post. I can't help myself.

There "she" sits, with her pink jewel case and her black shiny buttons and the glowing screen...I can't resist her. I don't mean to pick her up and bypass my book but she calls me, I swear she does.

She keeps sitting there, looking at me and I can't resist her. When I open her up and slide my finger across that screen, she is happy to see me. She lights up and her face is glowing and I can hear her saying, "I've missed you B." and I whisper..."I've missed you too."

Then I catch a glimpse of him. "He" sits on the same nightstand. On his pedestal, on his high-horse and judges me for not picking him up. Then he throws himself down...falling to the floor. Making me put her down to pick him up.

That's when it happens. I dust him off and as I go to put him back. He purposefully jumps from my hands, landing on the floor, upside down; to the page I stopped on..drawing me back into his world and then...then...I sneak..and read him...I don't let her see.

I turn my back to her, reading him in silent and trying to muffle the gasp or the laugh when I turn his pages and he has pointed out the next scene to me. Then as my eyes tire and he tells me it's ok to put him back, I turn over and there "she" is, she has gone quiet.

I touch her and she doesn't respond and just as I reach past her, the bump causes her face to light up but now, she is locked and doesn't want to be disturbed. So I close her case and wait until the next time.

Now I have to choose. Do I give in to her demands of time, or do I give him another chance. Either way...I'm to exhausted to think about.

They were both holding me hostage! It's a vicious cycle and I had to put an end to it. I had to confess because the guilt was strangling me.

So now you know. I've cheated but I have learned my lesson.

...wait...what's phone...what Droid...I can't hear want to read to me? I shouldn't...

Shh, ok...just don't tell 'them'..ok....


  1. I've cheated, too. But we've reached a compromise: menage a trois. Now, everyone's happy!

  2. Why do you need to choose? If each gives you pleasure the other can't, you should be able to openly embrace both your literary loves. Because, let's face it: no matter how cool Kindles and even IPhones get, books will ALWAYS be there for you.

  3. Ya can't sign a Kindle. Well, you can ... but it would ruin the screen.

  4. Hmmm. Perhaps it's more like dating several guys without committing to one. There are plenty of books on my shelves. I have a Nook. My laptop and Droid have both Nook and Kindle apps on them.

    I prefer to think of it as being fully prepared to read in any situation. Hahaha.

  5. You are young and beautiful. Its only natural for them all to want you! There is nothing wrong with giving in to the temptations and reaping the benefits of such connections.

  6. Wow! What a post! Impressive. Laura just came over and read this aloud to me, what a hoot! Sending to Sunny. -tc

  7. Thanks For The Support, I Think I Might Need To Go To Rehab For It.....I Can't Keep My Hand Off Of Her.
