For the entire month of June I’m planning on writing a series of blog-a-day posts based on a set series of open-ended questions to myself. This is one of those posts.
June 3rd // Something You Have Read
Since “reloading” this blog I’ve been fairly diligent in recording the books and graphic novels that have been consuming me lately. I noted some O’Malley, some Sawyer, and some Greene, too. But I think I’m going to take a less rambling, more abstract, more techie bend to this post, this busy Friday, and simply note that what I’ve been reading — something I have read — has been my new(ish) Kindle.
Back in around February I spent some of my “mad contracting” money and ordered the wifi version of the third generation e-book reader from Amazon.com. It arrived quickly and even more quickly I had loaded it up with a bunch of books and was carting it back-and-forth to the office, on our Hawaiian vacation, and on every random road-trip we’ve taken. It’s awesomeness defined. I love it. It’s faster than my old Sony reader (which got it’s use in its time and now suffers from battery fatigue on an un-replacable battery) and it uses the interconnected retail world of Amazon to synchronize a fairly substantial collection of e-books across not only the Kindle itself, but my phones and my computer.
Not only that, but in seeking out reading material on the Kindle, I’ve managed to secure and read a great number of old or otherwise eclectic books that I’ve neglected reading in print. As I said, awesomeness defined.
And that’s what I’ve read.
