I wasn’t feeling well last night. (Onset of a cold) and I thought a really hot soak in the tub with a book would do the trick. I select my Â book, draw my bath, settle in with an ahhhh. Â Then I open the book and start reading. Within three pages, I realized by the reference to secondary characters that this was a book in a series. Â Since the current book was ruined for me until I determine which books came before it (and go back to read those first) I had to close the book and set it aside. Â And of course I was stranded in the bath with no book to read :(
I guess the lesson learned here is to make sure the book I’m picking for bathtub reading isn’t in the middle of a series I haven’t read! Or just Â make sure it’s a standalone.
