More Kindle Love

I know my Kindle love is verging dangerously close to an obsession, but I do have a small addendum. Some people have complained because they feel like Kindles will prevent you from seeing what others are reading on the T and striking up a conversation. But I’ve actually found that more people have approached me because of the Kindle. Usually they’ll peek over my shoulder and ask how I like it, and we’ll get into a conversation about its pros and cons. On Monday someone even noticed I was reading War and Peace and we got into a conversation about it. I’m not normally the sort of person who wants to socialize first thing in the morning (or, really, ever) but I am awfully opinionated and I love sharing those opinions, so I’ve been having a good time with it.

I even got Guillermo del Toro to sign my Kindle cover last night!

I did discover one definite drawback to having the Kindle. I’m going to a Book Fair this weekend; how can I get the authors to sign their books? Do I have them sign my screen?

Get a cover for it—I was really tickled that Guillermo del Toro signed mine.

I have to admit – I’m getting curious to try out a Kindle or other e-reader. I like the idea of having authors sign your cover.

At the Brattle. He was incredible—smart, funny, eloquent… I think I have a new crush.
