So, when I was doing my Yearly Review and reading everyone else’s, I was constantly bemoaning how good all the charts and graphics and data info were that those who used Devilsreads had access to. I have to admit, I was jealous. Heck, I AM jealous.
This happens every year or so but this year seems worse than usual. I want to join up again. Just for the data tools. The only words would be the star rating, as I use half stars and the dates. I wouldn’t interact, as Devilreads is as toxic as any other socialmedia site. At least, that is what I have told myself time and time again. Then I think about how much I crave word interaction and I wonder if I could actually go on a site and not interact with other people?
Even thinking about it makes me feel like a word whore, please excuse the language. I know LOTS of good people use Devilreads, probably without a qualm. I don’t even have to sign up with a new account, I can just link my google account and go from there.
But can I do it without exploding or throwing a tantrum or otherwise causing myself incredible amounts of stress? I don’t know. The optimistic side of me says “Bookstooge, you’re an adult, you can do this!” while the negative side says “Bookstooge, Devilsreads is a hive of scum and villainy like no other” (thank you Obi-Wan). But I want that easy to access data.
I want it, I want it, I want it!!!!
Sigh. Thanks for listening. Just needed to get that off my chest. I’ll be back in my normal frame of mind in a day or three.
