I Wrote the Book You Asked Me About

New Song Title

by BethShelby

I have an Amazon Alexa. The device tells me about books for sale on Amazon. The red light was flashing, so I asked, “Alexa, what is my notification?”

She said, "Elizabeth Shelby has a new book out on Amazon, called Grasping the Elusive Dream. Would you like me to notify the company you want to purchase it?"

I said "Alexa, do you know I wrote the book you asked me about?" 

She said, "I'm sorry. I don't know that one."

Alexa is an Amazon device that notifies you about weather conditions, tries to sell Amazon products, plays any song, if it is something familiar, and gives info about most anything. You can listen to a radio or music station, plus much more. It is voice activated, so you talk to it like you would a person. If you ask about a song the station doesn't have on file she says, "I'm sorry, I don't know that one."
