Rock the Kindle

For those of you who don't know me personally, I received a Kindle for Christmas and am, to put it mildly, hopelessly addicted. I have so many books I want to read and am struggling with which to download first. One of my 2010 intentions (I am not a fan of resolutions) is to read 3 books per month, one nonfiction, one fiction, and one that is primarily educational/informational (i.e. books that are job-related, news-related, finance-related, you get the idea). This month I conquered these so far:

1. Nonfiction: Committed by Elizabeth Gilbert



2. Educational/Informational: Freakonomics



3. Fiction (downloading to my Kindle as we speak): Still Alice by Lisa Genova



I can't wait to get started on that last one and am starting to appreciate the Kindle...only $6.39 for that last read!

Happy Reading! Anyone care to share some favorites for next month?

Oh the kindles intrigue me. How do you find reading it as compared to a real book?

I thought I would have a harder time getting used to it...but honestly, within a minute or two, I had become accustomed. The e-ink technology makes it look just like a real book. Sometimes I even catch myself trying to physically turn the page :) My fav feature is that I can highlight passages from everything I read and it automatically goes to Clippings file where I can refer to it whenever I like!

About Me

This blog is a place for me to explore the things I love in my own little corner of cyberspace. Those things mostly being food, wine, yoga, travel, style, and my own little home improvement plan. I am a small town gal with big city cravings, a therapist by day, foodie-wino-yogi by night, and a lover of all things French, red, and tasty. Grab a hot cup of coffee and come sit by my fire....
