I got my Kindle for my birthday but I've been reluctant to show it off on my blog. At first I was even opposed to getting it because books are supposed to be made out of paper. In my iconoclasm class in college I remember talking with my favorite professor about how the printed book is rapidly becoming a thing of the past, and in the grand scheme of history never lasted that long to begin with. Reading books on paper is romantic and right, the way things should be. But do you know how much 400 or 500 pieces of paper weigh, and how much it weighs wrapped in a heavy hard cover? Not that much, but enough that a heavy book broke my purse. Yep. The weight of the books I was lugging around on my long-ass commute broke my purse. So for my birthday my grandparents gave me a Kindle because they know how much I love to read, and the three hours I spend on the train a day are the perfect time for it. So, now I have an e-reader. Books should still be on paper, but my neck hurts a lot less when its on a tiny device. I'm reading Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell, in case you were wondering.
