I've been Kindled.
I've been thinking about it for a while. I haven't read a book for 6 months or so. Last summer I read a lot of Anne McCaffrey, Sheri S Teper and Tanith Lee. And then I stopped. I kept picking up books and reading a bit, then lost interest. Even favourite books couldn't hold my attention.
The Kindle adverts on TV have been so annoying and then I got curious. And started to look into it and all of a suuden, on Sunday I ordered a Kindle and on Tuesday it was in my grubby little hands.
AND I LOVE IT.
I am totally fascinated by it, it's easy to read, to hold and I like the dictionary bit and that I can knit (knitkindle!) while reading, without having to find a paperweight or something to try and balance a book open.
But I am surprised at the passionate response from some of my friends. I mean, it's not like I'm burning all my physical books but to some people I have gone over to the dark side!! LOL.
What I like though is you can read "secretly" - no one has to know what you are reading.
My guilty pleasure at the mo is Angela Knight - Time Hunter: Warrior. I had never heard of her but was googling time travel books and this popped up.
And so I am reading again.
Also, I like that you don't know how long a chapter is, so I just keep reading. Somehow I don't feel "pressure". Difficult to explain.
Oh and hello to any LJ friends left out there! I still have dolls, I still knit and have been knitting lots of doll stuff.
And now I read again!
