I got myself a Kindle!
I've struggled for months with the decision to buy a Kindle. I LOVE to read and I understand how expensive my book buying habit has become. The problem is that I love building my library at home and I love the smell and feel of a good book. While I read the book I like to see my progress. For those reasons I've been 100% against a Kindle from the beginning.
Then the price started to drop. I saw how cheap some of the books on the Kindle really can be. The classics are all downloadable for free. A book I want is $15 but the Kindle version is $9. And after a lunch conversation yesterday with one of my co-workers who reads more than I do, books and with the Kindle, I decided that now was my chance to get one for myself. Just because I have a Kindle doesn't mean that I can't still buy those really good books that I'm going to want to share or reread in a few years because I love them so much. I can read both.
My new friend will arrive on Monday. I can't wait. It's just in time for my trip to DC! No heavy book to take with me, Kindle it is! There is also a Kindle App for the iphone and it will talk to my Kindle so I can read from my phone what I'm reading from the Kindle, and it will even know what page I'm on! Game on.
Are there any books I should download right away?
