The Kindle is proving to be a great friend. In only a few short weeks I have got to the stage where I actually prefer it to reading a heavy book. The only exception is when the book is one with lots of illustrations, or pictures in colour – that just doesn’t work. The Kindle’s advantages are made all the better by having a battery that seems to last for weeks. (Of course that depends how much time one has available for reading.)
This week, HBTW bought me a psychedelic cushioned cover/pocket. It is to make me feel more comfortable with Kindle-on-the-go, the last thing I want to do is to crack the screen now that I am a convert. Talking of converts, I have even downloaded the Good News Bible. Instead of trailing a bag of books away on holiday, it is going to mean a fully charged Kindle. Amazing what modern technology offers.
