Day 16: #100HappyDays Project

Veronica Mars, Book, novel, Rob Thomas, Kristen Bell, Ryan Hansen, Neptune, California, mystery, detective story, noir mystery, kickstarter

There was a time when I hands down refused to use an eReader. I cursed the gadgets and swore that I'd never abandon paper. Then two things happened:

  1. Borders went out of business.
  2. I had a miserable experience travelling with the insanely large and heavy A Dance with Dragons by George R. R. Martin.

I finally caved and asked my dad for a Kindle for Christmas one year, and it was love at first sight. It fit in my purse perfectly, so I was constantly reading on the go. Its screen gave off enough light to discreetly read in bed without disturbing anyone else. It was convenient and surprisingly enjoyable!

Little by little, I stopped buying tangible books and bought everything through Amazon. It dawned on me recently that my bookshelves look more or less the same as they did a few years ago, and that made me kind of sad.

Flash forward to today when I was meandering about in the book section at Target. I saw the usual suspects: John Green, Anne Rice, Nicholas Sparks. And then I saw ... Veronica Mars: An Original Mystery by Rob Thomas: The Thousand-Dollar Tan Line. What the what?!

I saw, I bought, I was happy :)
