What do I do when I'm not reading?
Huh, I don't understand the question :-)
I love music and there isn't a day that I don't listen to it. The iPod I have is my fourth because the size capacity of the older models were just too small and I have a lot of music to choose from. My taste varies minute to minute and I need the option to change. I could be listening to Adele, Gentleman or Paramore, then decide I want to rock out to Pachelbel's Canon in D.
I love Art (in it's many forms), Architecture (I've built my dream house a hundred time in my mind/on Sims 2 and it's different every time), Interior Design (a pillow is a small thing, but if you choose wrong, *gasp* you could throw off the whole room) and technology (learning about new gadgets and seeing how far we've come). I also watch TV like some, but lately I just don't know what to watch. Nothing really holds my attention like older shows use to. If I'm watching TV it will usually be a ATP tennis tournament. The WTA is not as exciting and it's unfair that they only have to play best of 3 sets, while the men play best of 5 in major tournaments and get the same prize money.
And before anybody who doesn't know Rafael Nadal says that he's just a body – let me say he's a very, very... (eyes wonder to the picture), what was I going to say. He's a great athlete. I admire his skills on the court and while he's a fighter on it, he's kinda shy off it.
I've wondered far off the topic here, but what a topic to wonder to, LOL.
How/Where do you get your books? Do you buy them or go to the library? Is there a certain website you use like paperbackswap?
I get most of my books online. I live in Germany and because the language is not English, books in other languages can be really expensive. That's why I prefer to order from online stores not in Germany despite the long delivery time. The price for the same book on Amazon DE is usually higher than on Amazon US. I can even buy 2 and in some cases 3 books from The Book Depository for the price of one English book on Amazon DE. The problem with The Book Depository is that I can't track the orders, so if they ever got lost, I couldn't prove I never received them. After that rant you would think books in German would be cheaper – nope. I've started to realize that books are just really expensive here, period. Just take the US price of a book and double or triple it.
I'd go to the library if that was possible, but I live in a small town and again... Germany. It wouldn't surprise me if I was the only person in the town who reads books in English and not for a school assignment. There is a more international city near by, so I might start looking for a library there because I need to find a cheaper alternative.
