Got to give up the reading marathon

I’ve been downloading eBooks from Amazon for a couple of years. I paid between $.99 and $11.99 for maybe one fourth of them. However, most of my downloads have been freebies. I’ve enjoyed reading about one third of the free eBooks. Some of the books I liked weren’t well written, but they held my interest long enough for me to get through them.

I often stayed up way too late in order to finish reading the books I downloaded that day. Not necessarily because they were so interesting, but because I knew I would be downloading more books the next day. I wanted to stay ahead of the game, so to speak.

I faithfully check the freebies advertised on BookBub every day. However, for the past month or so, BookBub has been repeating free offers for the books I already have. I’ve also decided that reading e-Books, especially mysteries, just before bedtime probably isn’t conducive to a getting a good night’s sleep.

And anyway, I think I should spend more time writing than reading, which is probably what I should have been doing all along.
