Friendly Fill Ins-Week 10
- I prefer reading “real” books with a weight I can feel and pages I can touch to “ebooks” that seem to have no physical substance to give added pleasure to the experience of reading.
- Letting go of the disappointments and hurts of the past, changing the way I think and my attitude was much harder than I expected.
- One way that I relax is looking out the window and daydreaming.
- The sound of sirens always makes me sad and a little angry.

I can identify with #2, even when we know that we need to come to terms with the past and let it go, it’s hard. Just when you think it no longer bothers you it will pop up in your thoughts or in a dream. At some point we have to realize that it just doesn’t matter anymore. What we have today matters, and who we are today matters, and God will see us through whatever comes tomorrow!
I think I have gotten to the point where I accept the past and know that it made me who I am today and that ain’t bad. I am fine with who and where I am. You are right in how sometimes the past just pushes into the present and can wreak havoc if not promptly put back in its place…in the past. Yes, God is ever faithful yesterday, today, and tomorrow!
Patricia, I prefer e-books because I don’t like having a lot of extra clutter, but then again I’m not a huge reader so this may be another reason why I like electronic books. 🙂 Good fill-ins. Mine responses can be found at the bottom of my Friday post. Feel free to drop in and have a good weekend!
I don’t buy books anymore and most of the books I had I gave because of the clutter they seem to encourage. Now I just go to the library. I will be off to see you later tonight.
I agree with all of them. I do use Kindle to read books of those that I promote and follow otherwise I will never take the time to read a book. But I love the feel of a real hardback book.
It’s good to have choices in what and how we read.
I’m with you on 2 & 3. But I prefer ebooks because they’re so much less expensive and don’t require much space. If I had to put all the books in my tablet in my writing room on shelves, I’d only have a tiny corner to write in! Sirens make me worry and I always hope no one’s hurt badly.
I don’t buy books. The library is my friend. I had lots of books but I gave most of them away. Once I read them I rarely looked at them again…seemed a waste of space and money. It is nice to have the option of ebooks when a “real” book isn’t handy.
Your #1 and #2 match mine. I can very much relate. Whenever I hear sirens, I make the sign of the cross in a little prayer for whoever may be involved. It makes me sad and worried. Thank you for joining us for Friendly Fill-Ins. It means a lot to us.

When I was a kid I thought being an adult would be easy. I didn’t factor in the past that would happen and need to be dealt with. I do like being an adult better than I liked being a kid even though being “grown up” has its own problems.
Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. I prefer real books too, I read some ebooks when they are free though. Have a great weekend.
I get free ebooks and sometimes I get them from the library. It’s nice to have the option especially if the weather is uncooperative making it unpleasant to walk to the library.
I have never read an e-book but I’m sure I have to agree with you, it is not a book, no matter what you tell yourself.
I do read ebooks sometimes but they are not the same as real paper and ink books. I almost always have a couple of real books waiting to be read.
