    I've noticed my one-click, impulse buys of ebooks has increased since the pandemic meant more time spent at home. My reading time has increased as well, but not enough to justify buying as many new books as I have been.

    Of course, it might also be influenced by the fact that I actually have a little bit of money now even though my work schedule has been wonky**; our emergency benefit has been helpful for times when I don't have work, and leaving the house apparently sucked up a lot more of my funds than I realized.

    Anyway, today I was heading to work but then I injured myself by slipping on a rainy patch outside, so instead of working today and tomorrow I'm holed up at home nursing a bruised tailbone and...I impulse bought like 9 books on Kindle.

    Hopefully I'll be able to actually read them, haha.

    **essential worker at the hospital, but our town has no cases yet so it's been 10x slower than before. that will change.
