The Post About The Rabbit Recommends v.89

Each week or so I post a readable or watchable and/or a listenable of which I'm fond. You can choose what happens after my recommendation. Ignore, embrace, debate.

Earlier volumes of The Rabbit Recommends can be found here.

I'm not necessarily recommending one specific book although you wouldn't regret some Bossypants via Tina Fey. You will LOL even if you're like me and realize the "LOL" has lost all integrity.

Today, I'm suggesting checking out e-books from your public library. My obsession with e-books took off when God got up in my bidness about my boyfriend Tele Vision. During Lent, I managed to read 11 books. And not wash my sheets.

E-check out is free, easy and accessible on your e-reader, smartphone, and desktop/laptop. Overdrive wins most popular since it provides 13,000 libraries with virtual libraries. You can visit the Overdrive Search Engine to see if your local library is cool like that.

Positives about the E-Library:
1. No conversation that starts off with "Where did I put my book?"
2. No conversation that starts off with "What page was I on?" I normally ask this when I fall asleep while reading. Although my drool stain is a great bookmark, it's usually found 6-8 pages ahead of what I can remember reading last. It's quite impressive how many pages I can turn while unconscious.
3. No dirty looks from the library scientist. I managed to keep Stephen King's Just After Sunset for 17 weeks and still didn't read it. It's now on my wish list in my e-library app.
4. Free.

I know you purists will argue things like feeling paper and smelling paper and I was with you. I even have a Rainbow Brite home library. But my cyber-crush Michael Hyatt called it 2 years ago in his post "That E-Book Thing Will Never Catch On." He included this:
"In 1442, 'I will never get used to a book. It doesn’t feel right. I just love the experience of unrolling a scroll and the beauty of hand-written words.' Johannes Gutenberg invented movable type and the mechanical printing press in 1439."

We can only cling to any one thing for so long.

Note: This advice does not apply to scrunchies or Saved By The Bell.

A few ornery tornadoes hung out in my state 2 weeks ago and so many have raised their hands to help us recover and rebuild. I speak for every Alabamian by saying "Thank Y'all!"

One way you can give AND get:

The compilation album "The Wind Will Carry the Voice of the People" includes some of my favorite artists:
All proceeds go to The Red Cross Disaster Relief Efforts in Alabama.

Plus, it continues our digital theme since you download the album. Therefore, no cursing over the RIDICULOUS CD LABEL THAT CAN'T BE REMOVED WITHOUT A PICK AX.

Recommending Disclaimer: I don't suggest anything because I get it free or because I have some sort of illicit relationship with an e-librarian or musician. However, I would be more than willing to consider one with the latter.
