All My Books Are Gone!!!

A few weeks ago something fairly bizzare happened. I went to download a new app on my Kindle Fire and it told me that I didn't have a card attached to my account.. odd I thought I did. Oh well, so on to the website I go to update my account re-added my card and went back to my app downloading. Much to my annoyance it once again told me that I had no card attached to my account. So I decided to check the devices registered to my account. What did they list? My husbands old phone that was registered through his Kindle app, by the way when I say old phone I mean the phone he had ohhh 3 phones ago. Yeah a phone he neither uses or looks at anymore and isn't even connected to the internet because it's no longer connected with our plan. Anywho, in my quest to remedy my situation I try to re-register my kindle back to my account, oh wait, I can't do that without first de-registering it. Instead of doing it the smart way and attempting to save all of my content I in all my impatient glory do it without even a second thought. So what I'm left with is a Kindle wiped entirely clean, all of my apps are gone and ALL OF MY BOOKs are gone. It's like I just took the thing out of the box.

Needless to say I was less than happy. I was 80% of the way through reading the High Lord and poof, it was gone. In a strange way I guess I'm a little relieved. I was getting so tired of the book dragging on and on and on. I'm taking the strange little mishap as a sign from the universe that if a book isn't working I shouldn't force it. In the time I've since I've lost everything I've been in a reading FRENZY. I downloaded a slew of new books and I'm plowing through them like I haven't been able to in the past few years. I just finished reading A Tale of Two Cities. I had never read it before and I have a soft spot for classic lit and Charles Dickens.

Right now I'm on about chapter 4 of Eye of the Witch by Dana E. Donovan. It's Book 2 in her Detective Tony Marcella series. I should have read the The Witch's Ladder first but I'm a rebel and sometimes I like to read books out of order. Maybe if this one thrills beyond all reason I'll get the first one and try to get in order. As of right now it seems like it'll just be a simple fun read and it's free in the Kindle book market if you're interested.
