THIS IS WHY: Wild Mad Love for Ebooks

I believe ebooks to be the coolest thing I’ve touched since Bono in the 90s. I wanted in on an idea that allowed anyone anywhere to be faster smarter higher than they could ever dream of being. Books in the hand. Ebooks. Millions, if you want and they fit. 

There is a time as an older girl, adolescent and young woman where I ate books. Nobody was talking about much of anything – though there was some drunken polka dancing I remember feeling great shame over – I became aware of this huge, now dead, march of voices behind me. They talked to me and I ate their stories whole, trying to shape in my own mind a life I wanted to live. West with the Night by Beryl Markum is the story that haunts; I volunteer on a project in Zambia. 

This is the child I see now. This is what I have stayed to see: I am so excited about ebooks.

I have struggled with alcohol, my weight, how I fold my sheets, why I can’t remember to pick up milk or swing by the dry cleaners. I have also enjoyed addictions to specific men. What I have never understood, though, is what sends me over the edge. I go from “person who might be addicted” to “addicted as hell” in three seconds flat.

Then I wrote this book.  For the first time since puberty probably, I was off sugar. I didn’t want it. Didn’t think about it. More importantly, other dogs of addiction stopped barking as well. I didn’t get all high on sugar and start saying and doing stupid stuff.  I could have saved a bunch of money at Passages Malibu if someone had told me this shit.

So, I’m telling you: Watch the sugar. Watch your moods. Watch your behaviors. After the sugar changes your mood you are probably saying and doing destructive things. This is how we fix it.
