Whispersync in my ear, and I'll follow you anywhere.

A little over a month ago, I proposed to the inventor of the Kindle. I'm still waiting to hear back, but I'm sure things are going to work out for us.

Because my love just keeps growing, every day.

And I don't mind that the screen is smaller on the iPhone; if a book is well-written, I'll read it tattooed around someone else's ankle. The fact that it's backlit just makes it that much easier to read in the bed without disturbing the cat, who likes to go to sleep earlier than I.

I had downloaded half a dozen free books and purchased two before discovering that Amazon Kindle books have a sample option. Just click the button, wait a few seconds, and start reading. At the end of the free sample, you're given the option to buy the whole book (which just shows up, a few seconds later).

This is so much more gratifying than reading an excerpt, ordering the book, and waiting for the mail to come. Oh wait. This is why everybody is so into instant gratification. I get it now.
