Being the geek I am, I like gadgets. If it does something useful, all the better. I was reading my blogs last night and stumbled across KC’s blog. She talks about buying a Kindle, which is a new electronic book reader from Amazon. For me it looks interesting, but I wonder if I’ll be able to get my computer books in this format. If I can, then I can downsize my book collection. Since moving into the apartment, I have managed to get most of my stuff unpacked, sorted out, but I still have two or three bankers boxes of books to go through yet and I have already given a bunch of the good ones to the local library which for me, means bringing them into work and saying, “Hey, put these in the catalogue”. Electronic is nicer from a space perspective, but I want the same rights as I have now with a physical book.
But the best thing on her page though was the kids colouring thing. This is awesome, and I can see several kids getting these as gifts from me this year. Yes, I know, I can buy Crayons and a colouring book, it would be cheaper, doesn’t need power but this thing has gift from me written all over it.
