Have a few minutes.
Hmmm... what to do?
Pick up a book.
Will read for just a few minutes.
A few pages.
A couple more.
Until Ramona is ready.
Where is she?
Peek over top of Kindle.
She doesn't need me yet.
Read a few more pages.
Have to find out what happens next.
What?! Are you kidding me? I didn't think that was going to happen.
Peek over Kindle. (Don't peek too effectively. She might find me.)
Read a little more.
What?! Are you kidding me? Don't do that!
When asked by Betsy, "Is that Scott's book? Are you almost done with it already?" answer sheepishly, "Yes."
Give Betsy a look that says, "Go away. Let me finish this. And then I promise you can have it."
Toss Kindle to daughter on the way to laptop.
Check Amazon for next installment.
Say, "What?! Are you kidding me? I have to wait for the next part?"
