I finally broke down –
February 28th, 2013
And bought a Kindle. Am I going to love it? Please say yes.
I needed one with 3G connectivity, not just wi-fi, because I don’t have a router in my house. And I doubt very much whether my connection is ever good enough to stream anything. So, no Kindle Fire even though those do sound snazzy. But the read-to-me function sounds great, since who wants to stop in the middle of the chapter just to wash dishes, right? So I wound up getting a Kindle Keyboard, even though I think the Kindle Paperwhite is significantly more attractive. I hope I wind up liking the keyboard.
I had no idea there were so many different kinds of Kindles till I started seriously looking at them.
I don’t plan to load my new Kindle up with ten thousand books I won’t read, tempting though all those free books may be. No. It’s not a fair trial unless I load it up with a couple of dozen books I WILL read. I’ll just go through my wishlist and add a bunch. And things like Martha Wells’ backlist, stuff like that. That’ll be the fun part!
I can’t even imagine what this is going to do to my TBR pile. I think it will probably expand toward infinity. First World Problems, right?
Anyway! The Kindle is supposed to arrive Saturday. I am going to try to get this final revision of THE MOUNTAIN OF KEPT MEMORY done by then so I have nothing distracting me from the Kindle. Other than, you know, life.
The introvert/extrovert thing is plaguing me, I think, because here’s Caitlin: “Maybe you can go through the whole story and every time Oressa thinks about anything, decide whether she should react emotionally instead with self-control and logic.” And here’s me, reading through the manuscript: “But she DOES react emotionally! All the time!”
However, once more from the top and I’ll see if I can possibly put her heart more out there on her sleeve.
