Waiting for Service Can Be a Bonus

Recently I went in to have my passport renewed. It will likely come as no surprise to you that after I signed in, I was ushered to a chair and told there would be a 20-minute wait.

That’s when I realized this was a gift. I pulled out my cell phone and opened the book I was currently reading. It was so neat. I had been reading this book on my iPad and now here I was, carrying on with the same book, different screen.

How often during the day do you have an opportunity to simply sit and read? What a gift! When my name was called I was almost disappointed.

One of my friends tells me she even reads while standing in line at the grocery store. It’s a new world.

So now, you know about this gift. What are you going to read? Did you know that my parenting books, Who’s In Charge Anyway? and But Nobody Told Me I’d Ever Have to Leave Home are in digital format.

You can simply go to my site and download and be reading in minutes.

Use the free time you are give when you are waiting on the phone, at a government office, a medical appointment, in the airport or at the store.

The books can be read on Kindle, iPad, iPod or smart phone.

You may find yourself hoping to have to wait. Where do you find yourself reading?

  1. Hi there, yes I often find we get so carried away with our desires for fast service, we forget how to enjoy life at a slower pace. Notable time for me was getting on an 8 hour train journey in bangkok, couldn’t listen to my ipod as there was loud thai music playing. At first I felt so bored and restless but soon I began enjoying the rhythm of the train, the scenery and even the music!

    But if I can read I do, anywhere they let me! :o)
