Birthday Celebration 2016

Tomorrow is my birthday and since I don't usually post on Tuesdays I'll just drop my celebration post here now. I had fun on Black Friday, not only because of all the ebooks I got (sorry digital movies) but I decided to venture out during Jamaica's sane sale version and bought a new phone. Finally I have a phone that can take pictures and go in the internet. But mostly take pictures at the theater to add to my movie posts. I'm a strange bird and no I'm not big on selfies. One of the first pictures I took of was....


Yup. I took a picture of my lunch. Don't worry I'm not one of 'those' people who take a picture of everything and posts it. But I just wanted to show off. Yeah, this is my 'being fancy'. Also took a picture of a few books on my TBR over the weekend and posted it on my critically lonely Instagram (less than 10 photos on that thing). Did I say I wanted to show off? Plus the author of Three Dark Crowns, Kendare Blake, liked and left a comment on it. So that's a win.  

My birthday plans are pretty simple. I'm likely to stay in because I really felt I went all out on Friday and even my father jokingly told me 'Happy Birthday'. I have multiple ebooks ready to read thanks to huge discounts (including The Chemist by Meyer - Twilight author. $4.99 was fine since I was NEVER paying the regular $14.99) and only felt a tiny tingle of bad over abandoning my digital movie buys plan. But I'm a book girl and on Sunday I was able to get a hardback for nearly half price. Won't reveal which book just yet but it was my only non-ebook purchase (besides me going out and buying my new phone) I made. The internet is just amazing.

Thanks for stopping by and November 29 can't come soon enough. To all my readers from over the years, I wish you all the happiness and gratitude in the world. God Bless.

  1. Happy birthday a day early! Sounds like you treated yourself well. I wouldn't pay that much for an eBook either.

  4. Happy Birthday!!!! I hope you enjoy your day.

    The $14.99 regular price sounds like the print price. My ebooks for my novels are $4.99 and print is $14.99. :)

    1. Thank you Chrys, I definitely plan to enjoy it.

      Oh no, $14.99 is the ebook price for The Chemist and the paperback is more in most places. That's why I didn't buy it until it went on sale for $4.99. I mean not even the hardcover book I bought on Sunday on special was $14.

  9. Happy Birthday! Sounds like you've had a good one so far. My wife didn't even leave the house from last Tuesday until Sunday and I just went briefly to run a couple of quick errands. It was a wonderful weekend!

    Thank you so much for your exquisite comment on my difficult post today. Hope you saw my reply. You are a voice of reason in a clutter of inane babbling. That's what the world needs more of! Thank you again!
