My Library...The Other One

Yesterday I had a wonderful day off during which I took the time to finally visit the joyous library.  Not MY library (updated photos to be posted soon...or whenever I get my books unpacked) but THE library.  It is only 1 single tiny block away from my house and I love that!  I found 2 books that I decided to check out and then got home and spent over an hour on the internet, looking up all the audiobooks available for download. 

I was so excited to see all the awesome books I could listen to on my iPhone, especially since my work computers are all messed up so I got a call yesterday from my boss to say we would be working from our main office an hour and a half away!  So I thought...hmm...what better way to keep me awake on my long drive than an awesome audiobook.  So I searched and searched for the perfect one to keep my interest until I finally had to leave the house (I had to pick up the last of my crap I left at my mom's house). 

By the time I was actually about to get everything on my computer set-up it was 10:30 so I hooked my phone up to my computer and "sync"...*error*error* problems with music...can't set up this app...you're computer hates you...no audiobooks for you!  What the HELL?!  There were so many crazy errors that I didn't even get my computer settled enough to feel comfortable that I could disconnect my phone from it without serious damage until after midnight.  So not only did I not get any sleep last night, I also didn't have a super sweet audiobook to keep me awake on the drive.  Yet I still arrived home from work today in a good mood. 

It must be that I know the library is so close and I am quite sold on this free book thing!  I'm off to read (and not watch TV...I'm practicing).

Sorry you got denied...All this technology's supposed to make our lives easier, right? Sometimes I think it creates more pproblems. But I love my gadgets nevertheless.

i'm such a fool for audio books and have almost exhausted my library's entire collection. i did a sneaky and naughty thing this week. i took my nephew to his library (90 miles from my house) and used my sister's library card to take out 5 fresh and new-to-me audio books! ahahha! my sis told me i have to pay all and any fines that i incur. she knows me so well.

i'm sure this is a federal crime but i'm a renegade, what can i say?

hope you synching situation is remedied soon. there is nothing worse than technology that is impossible to figure out or work with.
