I’m writing this brief missive on my Kindle Fire. I’m desperately in love. Granted, this isn’t the easiest way to blog, but it works and that’s all that matters.
I’ve just downloaded a number of fiction and science tomes. I may not surface for a few days, but there will be a full report when I’m done.
The Kindle has once again proved I am a geek, or possibly a nerd. I screamed for joy when I saw that footnotes and page numbers in the index are hyperlinked. By the end of this week I’ll be so spoiled I’ll whine when forced to read footnoted, indexed tomes in physical book form.
As for those of you who were magnificently kind enough to send me science papers, I’ll be reading those soon, now that I can comfortably take them to bed, work and everywhere. Granted, one can print pdfs, but not when one’s printer is nonfunctional. And on a Kindle, unknown words and phrases are no obstacle. It has a web browser.
The awesome is incalculable.
I’m off to read on my favorite electronics purchase since the laptop. Eventually, I’ll get round to doing a proper blog post. I just downloaded some of Charles Darwin’s geology writings. That should spark something, eh?
But first, moar Agatha Christie….
