Good books make life worth living

I just finished reading Lisa Shearin's The Trouble with Demons. Lots of fun! I downloaded it yesterday morning to my ereader, after a duh moment while I was getting ready for work--the book was released yesterday, but the day starts early and I didn't actually have to wait until I got off work to buy it. So yay for my Sony reader yet again! And yay for good books!

Now it's about 8pm, I'm off work tomorrow, and I just got paid. Life is good.

I want a Sony e-reader to be released here - not happy...

Yay for books! Yay for Sony!

(wouldn't Scron make an interesting Fantasy character name...it's my word verification)

Yay for books! Yay for Sony! Double yay for getting l...er...oh, you said PAID.

Well, that works, too. :)

BT--they're being really stupid by not releasing it everywhere, if you ask me.

Aaron--Scron the Warrior!

Jameson--Lol!

Catherine J Gardner said...

You read so fast. :)

BT said...

very stupid - it's enough to make me start acting like a spoiled brat and stamp my foot while placing a large pout on my face - which is just wrong.

I swear, they drop the price another hundred dollars and I am going to pinch my pennies to get an e-reader. Just for reading online magazines.

K.C. Shaw said...

Cate--I'm too fast, actually. I miss details. That's why I reread books so often.

BT--Wrong? But I do that all the time! :)

Jamie--I haven't even tried reading online magazines on it. I'm not sure it's possible with the Sony, but the Kindle has a browser and wifi installed. Give it another year or two at the outside, I think, and they'll probably start to drop in price drastically.

With the sony you can download pdf files into it directly. The Kindle has a run-about method to do it.

Oh, okay, I did know about the pdf files. It's a really nice feature, although it does make the print tiny. I need to experiment to see if starting with a larger font makes it more readable on the Sony.
