Me has Kindle now!

I mentioned earlier the reasons I was getting a new laptop.

It has arrived, by the way, and I’m really happy with it. Thanks for asking! No, I’m not being passive aggressive…maybe you are just being too sensitive. I’m fine, really. Nothing is wrong. Just, let it go, OK?!

Another addition to my collection of toys that have screens and buttons is a brand new Kindle. My girlfriend gave it to me for our 2 year anniversary. She’s really great at knowing what I want and interpreting my subtle hints in the form of “a Kindle would be great for reading!” and “I think I should get a Kindle soon”.

I won’t bore you by telling you all the reasons I’m happy with my new Kindle. You probably know all there’s to know about this nifty gadget. Did you know it has over a month of battery time?! And that it has an inbuilt dictionary for those recondite locutions you may come across? It’s super light and compact, so you can bring it along anywhere you want. Also, you can even read books on it!

OK, so I lied about not boring you…

Anywayzings (which is a word that nobody has used before and under no circumstances should ever use again), I am now busy converting all my PDFs to Kindle format and finally reading them. I am almost done with Ella Medler’s Martin Little: Resurrected – a quirky and thoroughly enjoyable tale with an alternative take on Heaven and Hell.

Today one of my favourite fellow bloggers, Carrie Rubin, released her first ever book – The Seneca ScourgeI will let Carrie tell you about the book in that post I’ve linked to, but knowing Carrie I have high hopes for it! Which is why it’s already on my Kindle, awaiting its turn to be read. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that you could totally have a book on your Kindle within seconds. Neat, huh?!

Before Carrie’s book on my list is the paperback version of Senseless Confidential from Martin Bannon. I’m really looking forward to it as well. Any book that contains the word “fuckhead” in the opening sentence gets my vote!

All I wanted to say is that I’m now finally equipped for the digital age and am looking forward to filling my Kindle with all sorts of reading material. Any recommendations?

Are you a Kindle person or a “books are best read on paper” person? Does Kindle kindle a flame in your heart? Does it make you happier than a kindle of kittens? Do you hate puns as much as I do?
