I have a story to tell ... Yes, it is about books, but more to the point it's about the weird customer service I've been getting from Amazon lately.

Let's start with this: I actually think Amazon does a great job of getting their shipments out in a timely manner. I have Amazon Prime so I get free 2-day shipping in pretty much everything. I love 2-day shipping. I order it today and it shows up on Wednesday. That's fast enough for me that I don't have the urge to go to an actual bookstore and indulge in some instant gratification.

So, when I say that the delivery service that Amazon uses in my neck of the woods has been sucking since they switched over from Fed-Ex or UPS or whatever it was before, you gotta feel me here. OnTrac. OnTrac sucks ass. I kid you not, last week, they called us at 8 at night to get directions to our house and then informed me that they wouldn't be able to deliver it that day. Umm... then why the fuck did you call? To add a little more insult to that, the box didn't actually arrive until almost 7 the next evening.

Did you guys read the part about how I pay for Amazon Prime specifically so I can get my orders within 2 days? Yeah. Waiting an extra day for my order is not making me happy.

I do go on a bit here )

Okay. I've worked through my anger issues. I'm cool. I got 2 free books out of it.

I also read a book or two today to blow off steam:
Book #27 - Night Betrayed (Envy Chronicles #4) by Joss Ware - I think I would have enjoyed this more if I had read the first 3 books in the series.
Book #28 - Dead, Undead, or Somewhere in Between (Rhiannon's Law #1) by J.A. Saare - Fucking hell, this book was good. Like, insanely good. Like, WHY AREN'T YOU GUYS READING THIS?!? good. Also, it's .99 right now for the Kindle. I'll even put the damn link here so can click right on over to it: Dead, Undead, or Somewhere in Between. Go forth and read it, babies. And then thank me later.

I went on and on here. Sorry about that.
I'll go now.
