Merry Christmas

Welcome to my 100th post!  I got a Kindle for Christmas this year.  I wasn’t that bothered about HD, 3G, colour screens and lights and all the other fancy accessories so I just got the standard model with an E Ink screen and bought a leather cover for less than £2 from eBay this morning.  I haven’t put any eBooks on it yet but will make sure I get it well stocked very soon…


For those who think I am heading over to the dark side of eBooks forever and ever, fear not.  I still have this pile of books to catch up on (and many others that aren’t pictured…).

Pile of Books

A very Merry Christmas to you all!

  1. Merry Christmas. Enjoy your kindle. I am still a book fan but am trying to use my iPhone for audiobooks and my iPad for ebooks. Still learning to love it…


  2. Merry Christmas to you too! I see you’ll be reading The Woman in White. I loved it!


  3. Enjoy! I have long been a fan of the Kindle but I still read hard copy books as well – there’s room for all sorts of books in my life!


  4. Welcome to ebook reading. I have had one for about 6 months now but I still and always will prefer real books. You’ve got a great TBR pile there. Liked Brick Lane. Read 250 pages of Midnight’s Children and found it to be utterly pretentious and extremely difficult to understand. Interested to find out how you like it. For ebooks, I just make sure they don’t cost me over 5€. If they cost more than that I prefer to buy a real book. You should check out the free ebooks too. Happy reading….


  5. It’s a great complement the kindle, but there’s nothing like browsing one’s own bookshelf for the next book and turning real pages. I have Murakami’s short stories on the shelf to read too.


  6. me too!! looking forward to reading both real and virtual books in the new year!


  7. Enjoy your Kindle; I use my Samsung Galaxy pad for BBC news & word games – can’t be doing with e-books, when my TBR pile if mounting dangerously skyward – you’ve got some lovely reads in store, especially the Desai & the Murakami. I tried to read Monica Ali’s Yellow Brick Road twice, & in the end, abandoned it. Can’t win ’em all.


  8. I highly recommend The Elegance of the Hedgehog. Merry Christmas! and I hope you enjoy your Kindle!


  9. That’s a lot of books you have there. Just got to reading that novel by Kiran Desai recently. Master and Margarita is one of my favorite novel ever. I also like God of Small Things. Enjoy all those books. Happy New Year!
