Am I the only one who wishes there were no such thing as political ads? They’re everywhere; I can’t escape them, but I dearly wish I could!
I think this 1873 Currier and Ives print sums up my feelings pretty well:
I’ve decided that until election day, my only form of entertainment will be reading.
No TV (unless I’ve recorded the program and can fast-forward through the commercials), no more radio. Just books.
Having made that decision, I now know why I have a To-Be-Read pile that’s taller than I am (times three); it’s for emergencies such as this.
So, a few minutes ago, I covered my eyes with one hand and poked the fingers of my other hand into my TBR shelf; here’s the book I randomly selected:
Doesn’t this look like a fun book? It’s my first time reading this author and I’m looking forward to losing myself in her cowgirl world. And when I’ve finished this book, I’m going to select another; then another.
So good-bye horrible, screeching, misleading political ads. I’ll see you again in 2020.

That print sure does say it all. 😛 I love your idea of reading instead of watching TV or listening to the radio! Since I don’t do either, I’ve been able to skip much of the mess, though my brother is involved in politics, so I still hear things, just not enough to drive me crazy. 🙂 Enjoy your books!
Thanks, Rebekah! It’s day 4 since my Politics-Free Declaration, and I have to admit, I didn’t realize how crazy it all made me until I gave it up. Added bonus: by November 6 I will have made a good dent in my TBR pile! 🙂
