You all know I love my MP3 player as I use it all the time listening to audio books. This is one I use and have been very happy with it SanDisk Sansa Clip+ 8 GB MP3 Player . Before this I had a different SanDisk version that has been discontinued.
I have had so many people tell me I needed to read The Girl on the Train. I put a hold on the book through the on line library I use and even though there was more than one copy I could see that I’d be on the wait list for a long time…close to 12 weeks. I told myself to be patient. As another person would write and tell me I needed to read the book I’d go over to Audible and put the book in my cart and then cancel. I was on the list and didn’t want to waste money….be PATIENT!! (But patience truly is not my virtue). I think I did that two times…then I went back to the lending library and saw that I was slated to get the book in two weeks. I looked at my schedule and could see that I was too busy to listen to a book anyway so I waited.
My notification finally came and started plotting on how to get listening time in….Ruby would get walks-not bike rides. I’d try to get more chores done during nap time so I had more evening time to listen. The plan was set.
So Tuesday I started out on a walk with Ruby and listened the whole time. I got home and made plans to go upstairs to sew. As I was going up the steps for no reason the player died. WHAT!?!?! I’d been waiting all this time. Dead battery..right? WRONG!!
The player was dead-DEAD.
I immediately went to Amazon to order a new one. Got it ordered and on it’s way. Only problem. I had transferred the book and couldn’t transfer it again. So just as I was going to go over to the lending library and put my name back on the list to hold the book, I decided to Google “Sandisk Clip MP3 Player dead”. I did and this video came up.
In about one minute the MP3 Player was fixed and working. Ahh…..
Now back to Amazon to cancel the order.
I hope this book really is as good as everyone says. It has had me up and down so many times and I haven’t even listened to the first chapter yet!!
