My E-readers

I have four dedicated e-readers right now. The Nook Simple Touch, the Kindle Touch 3G, the Sony PRS-350, and the Sony PRS-600. Maybe I’ve gone a little e-reader crazy.

In a way, though, I can’t really say that I have. I buy ebooks at both Barnes & Noble and Amazon, so I need those e-readers. I use the Sony-PRS 350 for library books, and its size is so perfect for portability, I just can’t do without it. Ok, maybe I don’t need the Sony PRS-600, but the PRS-350 is so great that I thought getting it in a larger size would increase my reading pleasure (it turns out size is not what does it). But all in all, it’s hard to find one e-reader that can cover the spectrum of purchases I make and the needs I have for portability.

In an ideal world, there would be one document format for ebooks. In that world, I would only need two e-readers. One with the form factor of the Nook Simple Touch, and one with the form factor of the Sony PRS-350.

Oh well. Until then, I can challenge myself mentally trying to remember which books are on which e-reader…

Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is just as good a time as any to start a blog. Thankfully, my list has pretty much stayed the same over the years.

I give thanks for my family without whom, life would mean nothing. I give thanks for my friends without whom, life would be bleak. I give thanks for the luck I have, living in a country where people have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, because as I turn on the news, I see people who must still fight for said right, and I realize that it is something I can never, ever take for granted.

And then there’s chocolate. As anyone around me knows, I am always thankful for chocolate.

Happy Thanksgiving!
