Thoughts about books from a romance addict.

It Sounds All Too Probable

on August 27, 2014


Hub and I trade dreams sometimes. He graciously had a nightmare about my Kobo Mini for me last night:


The details are fuzzy now, but it had the World’s Worst User Interface.  There was a new software update you wanted, so you went to their website to request it, and then it would push the update to the device, but then the device needed you to enter an authorization number, and it requested this by repeatedly screaming the word “KOOOOOOHHHHHBOOOOHHHHHHH” in a hideous electronic voice.  And then the authorization number didn’t work, so it kept screaming over and over while you waited on hold with the manufacturer’s hotline number.

We couldn’t figure out how to turn it off so I ended up trying to hide it in one of our cars or something, which didn’t help enough, and probably annoyed all our neighbors.


I had actually just been wishing for some way to make an ereader make a noise on demand, so you can track it down when it’s lost… but this might be overkill.

  1. Omg, I just read this post & am *cracking up* XD I don’t know why, but this just struck me so hysterically funny. I tried reading it aloud to my husband & could hardly get out the word “KOOOOOOHHHHHBOOOOHHHHHHH” for all my laughing, you know, the kind where you are crying & laughing at the same time? Oh, whew! And the thought of you hiding it in the car because it wouldn’t shut up & then the neighbors hearing it & probably being like, “what on earth is that *noise*?!” Ohhh, I needed a good laugh! Thanks!

Miss Bates Reads Romance

“Miss Bates…had never boasted either beauty or cleverness. Her youth had passed without distinction, and her middle of life was devoted to the care of a failing mother, and the endeavour to make a small income go as far as possible. And yet she was a happy woman..." Emma, Jane Austen
