Angry Birds are Slowing Down My Reading

If you heard the reference during the Emmy Awards show, or if you’ve seen them on the t-mobile commercial, you too may have been seduced by the lively music, the bird calls, and the crashing of the scaffolding.  And it’s free – at first.  Once you are hooked, and you’ve mastered all the levels, of course you can buy a game.

Never one for computer games, I am surprised that I have become a fan of the birds.  My books are in a heap, waiting for me – but the siren call of the angry birds on my iPhone is hard to resist.

Have you played?


  1. We are not technologically equipped for Angry Birds around here, although of course we have heard of them. No fancy phones or iPads or iPod Touches (much to my son’s dismay). So, nope, I haven’t played with the birds.

    • You are at an advantage. I’ve decided to turn off the birds and get back to the books.

  2. I’ve heard of it, but not tried it myself. I play Zombie Lane on Google+ but luckily, that’s not too addictive (for me, at least). I have played other games before that kept me busy!

    Do not forget about your lovely books!

    • Yes, I need to get back to the real adventures in the books,
