I got a new toy!

So I bought a Kindle last night…
Photobucket
I’m so not a gadget person, but in preparation for my flight to Thailand (happening this weekend) I’m trying to find as many things to keep me occupied as possible… other than alcohol.
Flight #1: NYC to Tokyo – 14.5 hours
Flight #2: Tokyo to Bangkok – 7 hours
I’ve never sat for 14.5 hours straight. I’m not sure what the hell I’m going to do. (Other than pop some Tylenol PM and hope I pass the eff out for most of it.) Since I don’t really need an iPad, I settled for the Kindle. I like to read. It has 2 entire months of battery. I can buy books wirelessly. All good things, right? I should be good to go. I’ve already bought a few… this is going to be just like when I first got iTunes: BAD for my bank account.
Here’s what I have so far:
Pride and Prejudice ~ Jane Austen
Seriously… I’m Kidding ~ Ellen DeGeneres
The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo ~ Steig Larsson
&
Presentation Zen ~ Garr Reynolds
What? Shut up, I’m a presenter. I have to work on these things





Any votes for November’s book club book?
Since I’ve pretty much screwed October’s book.

  1. Wow, that is a long time on a plane. I hate anything over 3 hours. Random, but my exroommate is over teaching english in Thailand right now! Hope you have safe travels!

    Book thoughts (don’t judge too much, I enjoy easy reads wink):
    The Help (just finished it, really good)
    LA Candy series (by Lauren Conrad)
    Twilight series
    Almost any James Patterson novel
    The Devil Wears Prada

    Okay that’s all I got. Have a great trip!

  2. demonoid.me, look for any title .mobi It’s a torrent site, any book for free. Shh don’t tell Amazon.

    Enjoy your flight

  3. I want one!
    And I want to be in the book club but my problem is I have to order all my books on the internet and they take FOREVER to get here, so I’d always be behind 🙁
    You’re going to LOVE the Girl with the Dragon Tatoo. LOVE IT!

  4. I have a Kobe, which is the Canadian version of the kindle (but I think its more accessible to different kinds of documents or something??)

    I was lucky, because the one my parents got for me already came with 100 of the classics, for free.

    If you are into the classics, most of them are public domain and you can get for free.

    My suggestions:

    The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver. I read this in highschool, and I still LOVE LOVE LOVE it, and read it at least once a year.

    Also:

    The Red Tent by Anna Diamant….if you don’t mind a different version of Joseph and his 12 brothers from the bible, told through a girl’s view (his only sister), its quite interesting.

Speak Your Mind
