This Could Become a Habit
So, a few days into my e-reading habit, I’ve finished the three sample chapters I initially downloaded. I’ve downloaded a fourth, but I may not get to that for a while because I went ahead and bought The New New Deal and I’ve been reading it on my iPod. Holy smokes, I could get used to this. Having a book in the palm of my hand is ridiculously enjoyable. I don’t have to worry about how I’m holding it or keeping the page open of what have you. I’ve read the equivalent of 200 pages so far and it hasn’t caused a ton of strain. It’s a fairly easy to read book, so I don’t know if I’ll want to use the iPod for everything, but it’s working so far. I saw the Kindle Keyboard marked down at Staples today, and compared to the iPod the gray e-ink screen was really unappealing. I think I’m going to wait until I can try a Paperwhite in a store before I take the plunge. Heck, I may wind up talking myself into a tablet at the rate I’m going.
New New Deal is a worthwhile read so far, at least if you’re someone inclined to support the Obama Administration. It’s doing a pretty good job of explaining how the Administration managed to achieve a whole lot on the policy end while taking a rake to the face on the PR aspect. I’ll try to write a fuller review when I finish.
