Let’s start with RESOLUTIONS
Well, let’s say we did - and move on. We know I’m not making any, right?!
How about REVISIONS
Okay, there’s one and it’s in reference to my previous post about my one and only GOAL for the New Year.
So, than this is really about REVISIONS to the GOAL.
I’ve decided that my goal should now be:
To set TIME aside DAILY to free write. So, it’s not “doing” the free writing that’s the goal, it’s making the TIME to free write that is the newly revised goal.
Now… onto something else…
I like games. I play games, and I read about games.
Presently I am reading the GAME OF THRONES (Book 1)
AND I AM LOVING IT!
REALLY LOVING IT! OMG (yup I’m even going there with an acronym. Why? Because I can!)
I’m reading it on my NEW Kindle Paperwhite - which I received for Christmas.
Yes, I was good! (What? You have to ask!)
Santa saw my name on his NICE list, so there. (Okay, it was also on his NAUGHTY list and I did get a lump of coal too!)
I’m not going to debate the virtues of an e-reader over turning a page in a ‘real’ book. Mostly because I like turning pages too. I will never stop loving the feel of a real book. I buy real books. I even read them too.
That said… I really, really am enjoying this Kindle Paperwhite.
Two years ago I received the Kindle Touch and was not thrilled. Really, I thought this is not what I wanted for Christmas - and I know for certain I was NOT on the Naughty List. It was like getting a lump of coal; that was until I got over my pout and decided to try it.
Thing is - IT IS NOT A REAL BOOK - I get that, but it does something that real books can’t do; it fits nicely into the side pocket of my purse.
Books can be bulky. Have you seen Stephen King’s, The Stand - need I say more, you need a little red wagon to cart it along.
So - these little gadgets have a place in my life. Now, when sitting in doctors offices waiting for spare body parts I can read… and read… and read one of the many books all neatly housed in this very thin little electronic book.
About GAME OF THRONES - all I can say is if you haven’t given it a read you are missing out on some amazing storytelling.
Okay - now for the question… (drum roll please)
Do you do any reading with an e-reader?
If yes - when, where and why.
If no - what’s holding you back?
PS - for the photos, in this post, I used Google Images. I would like to credit each but I think the sites they went to had taken them off Google too.
That said, here are the search words I used: 1-Resolutions, 2-Revisions, 3-Time Management and 4-Bulky Purses. See - that's how it's done! Credit where credit is due!
