I'll be in pre-op by myself as only two at a time can be in the room and my kids will be with my husband so he can't come with me. I'm in the middle of reading a book right now on my Nook. I don't like starting a new book while I have one going. It's an obsession of mine. I'm too involved in the character's lives and it's like moving a world away to start another book while one is still going. I know the characters are there. But it's like they are in a parallel dimension, living their lives without me. But it's my Nook. And if the staff are jerks, they may not return said Nook to my husband. I have "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" in paperback. It was a birthday present from a dear friend. I've not read it yet, since I've seen all the movies (in Swedish with subtitles, plus the American made movie). I figured there'd be time to read stories I've seen, so I've been reading things I haven't seen. BUT...if I don't get that book back, I'll feel horrible for losing a gift. It's a dilemma. I know. However, I could be stuck in pre-op for hours. Not sure I want to be book free that long with nothing to do but lay in bed.
