Inspiration Post #1

Tuesday, March 8th, 2011

Here is a small collection of various things that have inspired me recently. I’ll be trying to throw one of these posts up once a month or so, depending on if I find anything interesting. Though as alway with this blog, I’m not making any promises.

Kindle. A Review. Sort of.

Sunday, March 6th, 2011

One of the things I promised myself I would do in 2011, is read more books. Reading is something I haven’t done enough of in the last few years, but that’s about to change. But because I don’t have a ton of space in which to store a lot of books, I decided to buy a Kindle, which, obviously takes up less space. Right.

And after having used it for a little over a week, I am really happy with my purchase. The screen is really comfortable to read on, and it feels like you’re reading in an ordinary book. The menus and interface is easy to figure out and navigate, and I haven’t come across anything that has been hard or annoying to do yet. All I can say is that the Kindle is definitely worth spending money on. It has been really great to have on those long, boring bus rides in to work.

Currently I’m about halfway through Neil Gaiman’s American Gods, and I am having a lot of fun reading it. Fantastic book.
