I spent most of the morning doing admin. Lots to do, as financial cycle I’m on ended at the end of December and I need to get ready to file with SARS.
A couple of weeks ago I got an Amazon Kindle with 3G access. I’ve wanted one for a very long time. Printed books are very expensive and over the years I’ve had to be choosy about what I buy, instead of just getting a book because it looks interesting.
So I decided to go the ebooks route. I can get more books I like, and if a book is a keeper, I can get a hard copy at my leisure. I don’t love it (yet) but it’s great for my novels. It’s also nice being able to read my work-related documents ( in PDF) on the Kindle while curled on a sofa, instead of being stuck at my desk all the time.
And yes the critics are right: somehow an Kindle doesn't quite feel like a book in your hands, but I'll get used to it I'm sure.
