Upgrade your reading

13 Jan

Changed my life. Dominated my December. Reading is obviously a very sexy hobby, and the Kindle just ups the ante.

Pros: Can read complete trash without anyone seeing the title and blowing your cover. Classic books (like Jane Austen) available for free download. No need to remember a bookmark in your beach bag. No glare screen – perfect (again) for the beach. Takes up less space in luggage than a pile of books, now more room for shoes!

Cons: Annoying people will always ask you what you’re reading, since they can no longer see the cover. No backlit screen – how the hell can you avoid driving on long car trips without being able to use the book as an excuse at night? Desire to download everything, even if you already own the physical book. Husbands get a little pissy about the last one.
