Also the sky is blue, grass is green, and I hate the Lakers.
After months of dithering in the name of “assessing” and “waiting for Mac compatibility,” I have at last succumbed to temptation and am awaiting the arrival of a nice shiny… er.. matte finish white plastic Kindle. The future is now.
I am already busily making plans for my post-Kindle life, envisioning myself reading work manuscripts outside and on the bus and everywhere I previously couldn’t read them as I saved an Amazon rainforest worth of trees by reading partials on my computer. When I figured out that I could still take notes on the manuscripts and then export those notes back to my computer, well, my Kindle fate was sealed. It will be Kindleriffic, people.
I’m also thinking ahead to this weekend, where a beach bonfire looms (my job: securing a spot and waiting four hours with a book), but when my Kindle arrives later this week I shall not want to risk jamming its buttons with sand.
Score one for paper.
When my Kindle actually arrives there will be opinions, and you will be hearing about them.
