A good addiction
I read more with my Kindle now than I have in quite a while. I’m not sure why, it may have something to do with the fact that It’s one thing to hold onto and it’s rather easy to use. Plus, I can store all sorts of books on it. I’ve even begun categorizing the different books I’ve got. I love the fact you can buy books anywhere, and it’s uploaded to your Kindle right then and there. I recently bought Phil Rossi’s book Harvey for the Kindle. I bought it through Amazon on my computer, because it was a special offer through Rossi’s facebook event page, and within seconds it was updating on my Kindle.
I also like the fact there’s a ton of free kindle books out there, direct from Amazon in many cases. I picked up the complete works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes for free. That’s all the short stories, the couple of novels and the serial series as it appeared in the Strand Magazine.
I even love the fact you can categorize your books into different shelves. So far, I’ve got two; sci fi and fantasy. Soon, I’ll be adding western, nature, drama, and a couple others. Though, it will be difficult to categorize a book; Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy can be both a comedy and a sci fi. Even my own Black Mask & Pale Rider can be a fantasy and a western. Though, I doubt I want to go that far with organizing everything.
Needless to say, I do find this device addicting. But I also find it wonderful that I’m able to carry a library around with me in my coat pocket.
