Our Kindles arrived in the mail today.
Rediscovering reading has been one of the best things about this year. It’s become a nightly habit to put on a pot of tea, hook up the iPod docking station, set to some random Sigur Ros album and read for a good hour or so before going to bed. Being a slow reader and not having read for a few years, it feels like there is a metric butt-load of awesome books to catch up on. With that in mind, I’m pretty psyched to get my Kindle. It’s perfect for getting books cheaper and it also allows for immediate accessability for some of the harder to find books that Brisbane’s lacklustre book stores never seem to have. The screen is very easy on the eyes and being able to read newspapers is a nice bonus. I downloaded the next book in the Millenium trilogy, The Girl Who Played With Fire. Now I can’t decide if I should finish The Greatest Show On Earth first or come back to it.
Having too many good books to choose from is a nice conundrum to have.
I also have tomorrow off, so I’ve got a long weekend to kick back and read.
Life is good.
