Today I went on a hunt for two books. I won’t say what they are because they’re going to be a part of a special blog series. I started my search by seeing which one I wanted more, I was originally only getting one. Well as it turns out I had less of my gift card left than I thought so I couldn’t get either 😭
So I was like ‘I’ll just go to the library’, quarantined duh. Stupid me!
So, then, I reached out to my aunt who I was sure would have them. She hadn’t even heard of them! I was losing left and right.
In a last ditch effort I reached out to my friends on Facebook to no avail. No one I know has them.
Finally, defeated, I gave up my search and went to visit my dad across town like I promised I would yesterday. When I walked in the door he was on his phone ordering both of them for me on Amazon ❤️ It made my day! And he’s listening to one on audiobook.
I hadn’t realized but Amazon has deprioritized books 🥺 so my book won’t be here for about a week. But at the same time that I’m impatiently waiting for these books to arrive I’m grateful for my sweet dad and for Amazon making the decision to prioritize items that people under quarantine may need. I may consume books like they are fuel for my body but regular people under quarantine need to eat and have toilet paper.
