This is a non-bookish-but-tangentially-book-related post to illustrate how I am a terrible procrastinator and how fear is a great motivator.


Amazon and the Australian government are having an ongoing tiff over sales tax on products imported to Australia by Australian customers. As a result, Amazon has announced it will soon stop allowing Australians to ship Amazon products from any Amazon site but Amazon AU. I have no idea what this means in terms of digital content, so just to be safe I decided to make sure my Kindle library is backed up on my computer.


And that is how I discovered I am terribly lazy and irresponsible re: all the digital content I've purchased over the past ten years.


There were over 900 books in my Kindle library that I hadn't backed up on my computer.


So. Guess what I've been doing for the past three days.
